Default OS: 8220 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Pearl Flip (TM) 8220 smartphone
This will load on any carrier's 8220 model
From Claro - Argentina

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.6.0.375 (Multilanguage)

Package Version:
Consisting of:

* Applications:
* Software Platform:
* File name: 8220M_PBr4.6.0_rel375_PL4.1.0.80_A4.6.0.222_AMX_-_Claro_Argentina.exe
* File size: 88.4MB

Download here:

Instructions for installing on ANY 8220(regardless of carrier)

1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.

The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization."
If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run Loader.exe again and it should load the OS to the device.

Note For Advanced Users Only: If you plan on deleting the cod file for pre-installed media your exterior LCD will not function correctly. This does not pertain to people doing normal installs. You will not be affected.

For the previous version of this OS:

Thanks Bolin.

??? I wanted to download and install 222 rather than 236 but the link above actually goes to Movistar 209 not Claro 222.
