    I'd like to try device software 5.0 on my back-up Bold, but every site I've linked to, is either down or doesn't offer a download.

    Can somebody please suggest a current download link, thank you.

    Thanks Roger

    I downloaded this and installed on my PC. I deleted the vendor file. When I opened the App Loader, and clicked on upgrade software, the 5.0 is there but a message says

    *Only active BlackBerry service subscribers are entitled to install this BlackBerry device software

    When I click continue, it goes through the motions but says no upgrade is required.

    I'm on BIS rather than BES. Any ideas?

    Try using the Loader executable rather than trying to install via DM.

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader - the executable is near the top and has a little phone icon.

    And if Loader.exe doesn't work, then disconnect your PC from the internet and try Loader again.
