This will only work with the Storm 9530.
If you have not done so yet you need to download two operating softwares. You need the 22.214.171.124 beta OS for the 9530 and you need to download 126.96.36.199 beta OS for the 9500.
Once you have them downloaded you need to double click the icon(s) to install them to your computer.
Once both are installed you need to navigate to the following directory on your PC. :
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9530-v188.8.131.52_P184.108.40.206
There you will see a folder called "java". Rename this folder (right click folder>rename) to "java103"
Go back one directory and you will see the folder for .109.
go in there you will see a folder called "java". You need to copy that folder (right click folder> copy).
Once again...go back one directory and back into your 9530-v220.127.116.11 folder and paste the folder you just copied. You will now have three folders.. CDMA, java, java103. If you see those three folders now, you are doing everything correctly.
You now need to delete 18.104.22.168 from your computer. To do so, go to your control panel and add/remove programs. Locate the Blackberry Device Software v22.214.171.124 for the 9500.
once this is uninstalled go to the following directory
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
Plug your phone in. If desktop manager opens up, close it.
In the AppLoader folder you will see a file called "Loader". double click that file.
This will prompt apploader. From there you want to hit next, then next and allow it to do a back up and restore afterwards then click next.
Let your phone upgrade and you are done!!! You can make sure everything went normal and loaded by going to your About page under option. Should show you are running the .109 OS.
Thanks for this excellent job of yours!!!
Just got a Storm 9500: how can I upgrade it efficiently, up to .109 for instance?
Impatient to read your comments about that... Thank you again!
You will see a huge improvement when you upgrade to the .109 for you 9500. The OS that comes 'stock' with the Storms are just horrible. In fact you will see an improvement with ANY OS you upgrade to. .109 is the latest OS for your 9500. I have not heard really anything bad about it in regards to the 9500. I know .106 was a huge success too. Its all about personal preference.
