Welcome to the forums.

That is a pretty old version of 4.5. You can install other versions of 4.5. They don't need to be released by Movistar.

Follow these steps to upgrade to 4.5.0.162:
Latest OS: 8320 4.5.0.255/4.5.0.162 (EastAsia + English)

And then try installing BBM again, either version 4.5 or 5.0.

It should have Spanish as well. You will see the options in AppLoader.

Yes, Spanish is included.

The reason the EastAsia is specifically identified is the character sets are very different than latin based characters.

What do you mean by you did the setup? Once you've downloaded and install the OS on your PC, then follow the steps in the link I provided above to install it onto your device.

Sounds like you did not delete the vendor.xml file as mentioned in the FAQ's here.
