Vodafone subscribers can now update their Black Berry Storm 9500's operating system from version 184.108.40.206 to version 220.127.116.11.
Reported to improve accelerometer lag and touchscreen accuracy among other things, OS 18.104.22.168 is sure to make many disgruntled European Storm users happy.
Grab a copy of OS 22.214.171.124 here and let us and the world know how you and your Storm are fairing.
To start a new operating system install, you'll need your Black Berry, an Internet-connected PC, a USB cable and about an hour and half of free time—50 minutes or an hour for the upgrade process and 30 minutes or catch-up time afterwards.
Mac users beware: RIM doesn't currently offer the Black Berry Desktop Manager software for Apple computers; however, industrious Mac owners running Parallels and who have a copy of Windows have been able to upgrade their Black Berrys via Macs, though the process can be a bit clumsy.Once you do so, you should see a “Check for Updates” button here.You will need to download Black Berry® Link to update your smartphone software.The Black Berry platform is perhaps best known for its native support for corporate email, through Java Micro Edition MIDP 1.0 and, more recently, a subset of MIDP 2.0, which allows complete wireless activation and synchronization with Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, or Novell Group Wise email, calendar, tasks, notes, and contacts, when used with Black Berry Enterprise Server. Updates to the operating system may be automatically available from wireless carriers that support the Black Berry over the air software loading (OTASL) service.Third-party developers can write software using the available Black Berry API classes, although applications that make use of certain functionality must be digitally signed.For what it's worth, Verizon Wireless was expected to release a software update for the Black Berry storm for quite a while now, yet it has delayed it over and over, and while the OS 126.96.36.199 was expected to be launched on its airwaves late last month, it seems that the carrier's users won't be so lucky this time either.
