BlackBerry Curve 8900 OS Officially Released

I am liking this trend of OS 5.0 rolling out to devices that did not ship with it. The latest releases were for the 8900 spotted by the team @CrackBerry. This release has been put out by multiple carriers so it should be pretty solid. It was already leaked before so if you already have it installed I don’t think you will see any benefit in upgrading.

Kudos to Cadillac Cowboy for sending this one in!

  3. Weird stuff, can’t get it installed. Desktop Manager doesn’t see this new OS, grr. Anyone else having problems?

  4. Hmmm.. i heard it has memory leak. can anyone please verify?

  5. I’ve had this since it was leaked. This has been a really good OS build for me.

  6. hey im sorry but im a newbie…and im desperately waiting to update my bb curve 8900 to os 5.0 n im using vodafone….but i stay in india…so if i download the software from the above link(vodafone de)….will it be working for me in india
    thanks in advance

    • Just make sure to delete the Vendor.xml file (just google this) and when ready to do the upgrade, turn off all internet to the Computer connecting to your BB (this prevents your system from getting the vendor file again) until the upgrade is complete.

  7. Unfortunatly no Russian language support. How can I get it?

  8. I downloaded and installed the 5.0 today on my Curve 8900; but it will not update on the device at all. I even tried the leaked ones, months ago and they never updated inside the actual device. Could it be something with T-Mobile, my carrier? I will go through the whole process, and then when it comes time to select, desktop manager only shows the 4.6.1. THAT one took away all my games and messenger!

  9. I downloaded and installed the 5.0 today on my Curve 8900; and it’s working is really nice version!
