Default Trouble Downloading Firmware

Please Login to Remove!

I need some help, guys. I have spent the past few days trying to download the latest leaked version (.205), but I cannot find the icon to where I downloaded the .exe file to. At first I thought I merely lost track to where I downloaded it to, so I downloaded it again. The second time I was absolutely sure where I downloaded to, but after downloading the file is again missing. I tried it this morning and for the third time the file is missing.

This is probably more of a Windows issue instead of a Blackberry OS issue. I am running on old Windows XP and had no issues downloading the most recent leaked version (.190). I download each version to Computer > Program Files > Research In Motion > Blackberry > 9900. Presently I have the past two .exe files from previous versions (.190 most recent), and I merely tried to download the most recent .205 leaked version to that folder and for thee times the file downloads fully, but there is no .205 program for me to execute and start the updating process. It downloads but disappears.

Any of you guys have this problem, and does anyone here have a fix to this downloading problem?

What browser do you use? FireFox, by default, puts downloaded items into My Documents > Downloads.

Have you done a search of your C: drive on your PC for the file?

The entire C: drive? It will take forever, but I will give it a try.

Shouldn't take too long...

Click Start > Search > Files or Folders
Select All Files or Folders
Put 7.1.0.205
And select your C drive.

Let it scan to find your file.

I just copied and pasted the exact downloading name into the search option and it checked the entire C: drive and found nothing. Huh? Maybe I will try downloading it with Firefox instead of Internet Explorer. I do not know why the sucker disappears every time I download it.

I tried the Firefox approach and I find in the Downloads folder that the file downloaded in the most recent link is a torrent file. Perhaps this is the reason why I cannot download it with Internet Explorer?

You would need a Torrent client like uTorrent or Bittorrent.

You can also use the dropbox link in the thread. That is the actual file, not a torrent file, which again, can only be opened with a client.

Do you have any type of antivirus like norton or mcafee? I've read that sometimes those antivirus programs would block downloading OS's.

No, he just kept downloading a torrent link. Didn't have a client. He went to the wrong link.

Dude, I am absolutely, positively 100% sure that I have not misplaced the file. When you download for the third time, you make sure that the location is correct. Furthermore, when you do a search of the C: drive and find nothing, there is something wrong.

All I know is that the file is downloaded to a temporary file and upon completion is copied to its determined location. However, I cannot locate the damn bugger even after specifying its destination folder. Ugh!
