O.S 5.0.0.425 For Storm 1 Users!

Hey guys, im a storm 1 user, and recently downloaded an official release of the O.S 5.0.0.425 above, not from vodafone, from a different operator but its for the BB 9500 Storm 1! Just installed it last nite and the responsivness of the screen is so much better than the current release from vodafone, transition between different menus and stuff is so fast also, great improvments with the camera too! I got the link to it if any of you current Storm 1 users are interested, no offence but i got a bit tired of waiting for vodafone to release a newer version of software, even the UK has a better version of the O.S 4.0 than us!

Hi all,
I'll just pop in with the obligatory disclaimer (I know, boo, hiss).
You may experience difficulties with warranty repairs etc by using versions of software that are not approved for use by your operator.
That said, we know a lot of you are very technically proficient, so we're sure you'll enjoy the challenge of figuring out fixes for bugs etc that may occur, and you're welcome to pool your knowledge here about anything that comes up.

Thanks!

Well...i just wish this was released officially by vodafone earlier, i mean they still have no word on an official release! kinda sucks that u have to go elsewhere to get a decent O.S for your fone, but yea makes the storm very responsive compared to the old version of software! camera is great also, things just work better and faster over all

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the info on the upgrade.
I cant connect to vodafone live or internet after upgrade.
Im trying to locate the settings for these, does anyone have them handy.

Ps. The upgrade makes the 9500 usable. Hate to repeat it, but this should have been release officially.

Cheers,

Mick0s

thats a bit odd, the upgrade worked perfectly for me! maybe if u try a reinstall! did u register it on the blackberry network by goin into options, advanced options, host routing table and pressing the blackberry button and registering it?

Hi stevieboi2004,

That did the trick, re-registering it sorted it!!

BTW what browser are you using on the Storm?

Cheers,

Re:O.S 5.0.0.425 For Storm 1 Users!

All, I had upgraded my Storm to 5.0.0.328 before Christmas and it's been rock solid...no issues whatsoever (unlike 5.0.0.436 on the Storm2) . Any further comments on .425? Is it worth upgrading to or should I stay on .328

Re:O.S 5.0.0.425 For Storm 1 Users!

So I am going to ask the question again as there has so far been no answer.

When will Vodafone Ireland finally release OS 5.x for the BB Storm 9500?...and please don't provide the "T&C"

As it is I have been OS 5.x from other providers (incl South African Provider) since well Christmas. OS 5.x makes the phone usable, the transitions are quicker the phone is far better.

So yet again Vodafone Ireland customer are left behind on updates...I suppose seen as we get phones after our "Big" cousins in the UK and that the pricing is ALWAYS worse we should be used to it by now!
