    Question Restoring my Blackberry Bold 9700 from OS 6 to OS 5

    Hi there,
    Can someone share how could i restore by BBB 9700 which i have accidentally upgraded its OS to OS 6, but would want to restore it back to OS 5. This is because OS 6 takes out too much of the device memory and the device is left with little memory for me to install other opplications.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    What you will need to do is back up your device and follow the directions in our guide to upgrade your device. You can find that here:

    A popular OS 5.0 build that people seem to enjoy can be found here:

    Welcome to tyeo

    I see you own a BlackBerry Bold 9700, currently with OS6.0, and you wish to return to OS5.0.

    That is possible.

    There are 2 options I have for you tyeo, and those are either to wipe your Bold 9700 using BBH-Tool, or BBSAK, until you see a 507 code on the device (it is completely normal), you will need to install the latest OS5 file (below) to your Bold 9700.

    Another option is too keep OS6.0 and shrink it using BBH-Tool, when used properly, it can save you a lot of storage application room for your Bold 9700.

    I have provided you the tools for you to choose either one, it's up to you.

    Here is the latest official OS6 download: OS 6.0.0.723 For BlackBerry Bold 9700 Via SK Telecom

    Here is the latest official OS5 download: Cosmote_9700_5.0.0.979 BlackBerry Bold 9700 via Cosmote

    Here is BBH-Tool v2.4.9.5 or Wiping your phone with BBSAK step by step

    Enjoy
