    Well you have to remove the old version from Add Remove Software (Programs and Features) from Control Pannel, and then download the OS6 and then run it, it will guide you through. the 1st install might break but don’t panic, you can reinstall a 2nd time.

    You have to delete a certain file from Research in Motion folder before running the set-up

      Navigate to the folder – C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9700M_v6.0.0.344_P6.6.0.50\Java

      Locate 2 files named and delete them-
      1) net_rim_theme_tmobile_BlackBerry6_480x360_b.cod
      2) net_rim_theme_tmobileeu_BlackBerry6_480x360_b.cod

      Re-Run installation using 'Loader.exe" from the 'AppsLoader' folder after deletion of the 'vendor' file in the same folder. Here's how you get there –

      C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader

        awesomeeee mahnnnnnn .. .. u r gr8 . .. . . thnx a ton

  • Anumaan

    It is definitely a home run! Blackberry is the best phone I have used so far and this is definitely a Great OS. But being human we can't be perfect so human errors are obvious. I am using it for 2 days now and found some micro bugs, rest everything seems good and pretty smooth. I am sure the fix would be out soon. I'll give 7.5/10 to this new OS.

  • Aaron

    It works perfectly with my bold 9700! Great and better! I don't know why RIM has not released this for everyone yet!
