How to upgrade your BlackBerry OS

Category: Skill, blackberry, Author: owen wong, Popularity: 1% [?]

Last night, I was ready to upgrade my Tour to the v4.7.1 Asia version. When I wipe (a tool to format your BlackBerry) my phone and started to update, the DM told me that there's no software required for your device. Oh! Terrible! My phone has already been formatted and showing 507 error. How could this be! Now I have to rescue my Tour.

Finally, I found a way to solve the problem.

1. Install OS and DM properly.
2. Delete C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\vendor.xml (if you want to install another provider's OS)
3. Unplug your phone's battery. (For normal upgrade, you need not to do this.)
4. Connect your phone to PC.
5. Format your phone with wipe (you can download it here.)
6. Open your DM and choose App loader> Update Software.
7. If you're lucky enough, the phone will start upgrade, you may insert the battery during the process if the upgrade cannot continue.
8. Congratulation! You have updated to the OS you want!

    You can find the latest OS from BlackBerry official site.  Remember that you should backup your data first and it has risk to upgrade your phone with different provider's OS.

      Unzip wipe to a folder. Then connect your phone to your pc and run wipe.bat.
