Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

Here's a link for anyone who wants to download any official Blackberry OS (operating system) for their particular device from O2 ireland. Maybe mods can make this a sticky in this section :smileywink: 

 

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=9308B0D6E5898366A4A986BC33F3D3E7

 

If you've any queries about how to download or install an OS post them in the blackberry section and I'm sure we can sort it.

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

Hi Cookie,

I just plugged my phone into desktop manager and it asked me to update to 6.0.0.448 - seems to be rolling out now officially.

Trying to get used to this now, and memory went down to 62mb after I updated!!!

Cheers

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

Thats great but it's still not listed on the official O2 IE Blackberry site here:

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=9308B0D6E5898366A4A986BC33F3D3E7

 

If you want any help gaining memory give me a shout. I've had about 110 mbs free after a fresh install with no extra apps. Currently with the following apps installed:

Docs to go premium

Google Maps

SPB TV

Social Feeds

Repligo PDF Reader

Facebook

IM+

Tunein Radio

SugarSync

DropBox

QuickLaunch apps

 

I have 84mbs free

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

Thanks Cookie!

 

I went through it and I noticed there is sms messages from August 2010!! So I cleaned up some of them and now I have 72MB - I wonder why O2 wont put this up yet as official?  I wouldnt have known apart from coming here and seeing where you update about the latest os's.  It was only I wanted to backup the phone I connected to desktop manager.

 

I had loads of saved messaged I will clear some of them out and see if that works, I only have

 

facebook,

twitter,

google mail,

google maps,

british airways,

google talk,

bbm and 

capture it.

 

I thought it would over-write the old sms messages but appears you have to clear them out..

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

That's not bad Matt. I think I should have done a fresh install and wiped the phone before I upgraded. I didn't realise how much memory was being wasted with sms, saved emails and bbm chat logs.

91.7 is good, when I seen 50 I was about to reinstall os5 lol

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

If you install it through the App Loader, rather than the desktop manager, you can do some good shrinking of the OS. E.g, you can get rid of all the languages that your never going to use. I got rid of all the games too.

Really happy with OS6, by far the best OS so far!

They will shrink the OS by removing what ever you want. I also manually remove the demo videos from RIM and some of the fonts I dont use.

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

I wasn't sure what shrinking an OS actually was. I'm happy now I went into settings and removed modules I don't use. I might do a module load over the weekend and get the memory up more. Cheers.

BBSAK can remove the fonts and demo videos. Be careful if you use BBSAK. Any questions just post back. Otherwise enjoy Hacking :smileyhappy:

Lol Cookie! Hacking...... I feel like a mad surgeon or something.

On a side now, did you notice when you use facebook by the web browser it says 'download the facebook app for your blackberry curve 3' would this be a Curve os or just a facebook mixup? It used to be the proper Bold message. Just something I noticed!!

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

Hi,

One quick question first.....What price plan are you currently on? You need to be on one of the Advance plans or the Simplicity plan with BIS add on. You will not be able to set up email without one of these plans.

Re: Official O2 Ireland Blackberry OS downloads

Maybe that's the reason.i cannot connect the Blackberry Facebook...because im on Pay as u go..but i can change to simplicity..as there is a 20 euro a month plan..hope that includes the BIS..

Thanks for the info Matt..

Simplicity does not include BIS. You will need to add it at a cost of €15, making the total €35.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to use any of the blackberry services without BIS, including Facebook.
