@jerrydan - yes i'm saying carrier doesn't matter. Again, as long as you get rid of the .vendor file. Look on the forums their are lots of guides to help you. Or just Google for help. I find Youtube has the best tutorials for *anything*

just installed it on mine and it works great!! i love it!! yes mine is rogers branded and it still has rogers screens.

here's how:

make sure you have DM 6 first and back up your phone

All backed up now? Good, lets get moving.
2. Install OS On Your Computer – Once you have downloaded OS 6 from wherever you downloaded it from (I will not be giving any links to the program), double click the .exe file and go through the steps. It’s fairly straight forward.
3. Installing OS 6 On Your BlackBerry Bold 9700 & Restoring Backup – Once step 2 has been completed, connect your phone via USB if you disconnected it after the backup process. If DM loads, check that it is connected. You should see an image of the device when it loads with an option telling you that an update is available for your 9700. Ignore this for now and close DM.
Now we need to locate the setup files that we installed in step 2. To do this, we go to: –
C:\program files(86)\common files\research in motion\apploader\
When inside this directory, either delete or rename the vendor.xml file to something else. I recommend that you delete it. If it is not there, don’t panic, then run loader.exe.
Follow the on screen instructions, but when going through, take a look at the different check marks to see what you want installed and what you don’t want installed. My recommendation would be to uncheck all applications that you downloaded such as Facebook, Twitter, Windows Live Messenger, Copter etc. We will manually redownload these after OS 6 has been installed.
When you get to the screen that asks you if you want to make a backup of your device and restore 3rd party applications, change the option to Do Not Restore. It should already be selected to do so, so make sure you change it.
Experience OS – Let the updater go through the process and update your phone to OS 6. It should take up to 30mins for this to be completed. Once it has been completed, or near to doing so, you should notice that your BlackBerry has a slightly different loading screen, with the loading bar being at the bottom of the screen and an updated BlackBerry logo. The phone will then boot for the first time and take you through a video guide of the new features that come with OS 6. I almost skipped this, but if I did I would not have found out about 1 or two new features like the improved zoom, or the extra options that have been added. It will then prompt you to setup your 9700. If you wish to do this later, you can always come back to it. Play around with the menu’s for a while until you are satisfied that the installation went well and are having no issues. I recommend doing a battery pull afterwards, and letting it reboot to double check that there are now problems after the initial boot.
Restoring Data To Your Bold 9700 – By now, you should have a big smile on your face knowing you installed OS 6, and everything is working perfectly. You love the new menu’s and features but want to get your contacts, saved data and applications back on there.
Simply pop your USB cable back into the phone, load up DM, select Device > Restore, to which then you will be prompted with an option to choose your backup file. Select the most recent, and then select the option that allows you to choose what items you would like to restore. Only choose items like contacts/calendar/tasks/memos/messages etc. Nothing else should be restored from the backup file.
Once everything is restored and you have checked to make sure it is all there, you can then use BlackBerry App World to download the applications you had installed before and hey presto! You have a fully functional OS 6 installed on your BlackBerry Bold 9700.

hope this helps and you enjoy the OS6 as much as i do

My review on os

After install, total memory left is around 65 - 68mb (out of 256mb) - this is without any other applications installed -- upon usage, the available will be reduced every time the bb is used (esp for camera). Usually by 2 days, the available internal memory is around 3mb - 15mb, in which during that time you have to restart the bb to replenish the 65mb (maybe memory leak?)

Secondly, in the blackberry messenger, the cursor for identifying our position if we want to copy text is not visible, hence it is hard to copy messages from others.

And for the rest, there are couple of glitches when moving the cursor (where the highlights does not actually point to the exact spot we are directing, such as in the connections menu. However, this does not occur every time (only random).

Other than that, the OS works just fine

Hope another release of official OS6 will be coming soon.

Cheers ^^

Hello, How can I roll back BB OS from 424 to 380? i delete vendor but didn't change anything.

memory leak, but a simple (and very fast) restart will solve this problem. hope next update fix this. other than that, no complain at all..
