Software For BlackBerry Curve 8310 (TM)

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.2.338 (Chinese)

Package Version: 4.2.2.338
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.2.2.184
Software Platform: 2.5.0.40
File name: 8310CJK_PBr4.2.2_rel338_PL2.5.0.40_A4.2.2.184_Sing Tel.exe
File size: 93.77MB
It is ~18.5MB bigger than the previous 4.2.2.181 version.

To install extra vendor themes:

GOTO C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8310-v4.2.2.184_P2.5.0.40, rename the blackberry.alx to OLDblackberry.alx, install the attach blackberry.alx to install all vendor themes.

To install BBMaps For ATT/Cingular/Orange (and some other European carriers)

GOTO C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8310-v4.2.2.184_P2.5.0.40, rename the LBS.alx to OLDLBS.alx, install the attach LBS.alx to install BBmap.
LBS.zip

To remove Push To Talk:

GOTO C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8310-v4.2.2.184_P2.5.0.40\Java, rename the net_rim_bb_phone_ptt_app.cod to OLDnet_rim_bb_phone_ptt_app.cod, to remove PTT.

This OS can be installed on ANY 8310 regardless of brand.

Installation Instructions

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Desktop Manager installed. Currently, the latest version available is 4.3 and may be downloaded here: http://www.blackberry.com/go/softwaredownloads

Note: Desktop Manager 4.3 still has some issues. Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 is recommended but 4.3 can be used if desired.

2. Download the above file to the PC then install it to the PC by running the file you downloaded.

3. Locate the vendor.xml file and delete it. It is located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\Apploader

4. Plug in the BlackBerry and open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.

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." Don't unplug from the PC & Don't remove the battery unless the spinning hourglass has been there for 30 minutes or more. If the hourglass has been spinning for more than 30 minutes continuously you will need to wipe the device with JL_Cmder (close out of Desktop Manager during this process.) You will then end up with a white screen with small icons and an error code number like 507 or 543.

If you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507/543, simply connect to DM again and run application loader again and it should load the OS to the device.

This upgrade is not getting the usual interest. Is there a reason behind that? Is every one is waiting for long atnticipated 4.3!?

It's too close to a weekend and a holiday weekend at that. The previous OS was 4.2.2.181 so this isn't really a big upgrade.

Just got a new 8310 (first time BB user). Nothing on the phone yet - virgin. Loaded 4.3 desktop, downloaded & installed the update, removed Vendor.xml, added BB maps, removed PTT etc etc and did the upgrade after it prompted. Said "update successful" yet when I go to the info screen it still says V4.2.2.175. BBMaps are there and PTT is gone but the version isn't right.

Also, I keep getting a popup with "Exception Processing Error" when I start Desktop - Windows NO DISK. I hit CANCEL and it goes away and then pops up a few minutes later.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Happy Holidays!

Go back to 4.2.2 desktop manager, seems 4.3 has bugs. I installed the new software and just starting to use it. Didn't see anything wrong with the Suncom one.

I just realized I posted in the wrong thread about this upgrade. I spent all day yesterday getting it working correctly on my 8310 that had .170 on it still. I had some issues where I wasn't able to send via BIS and the internet was real slow on it. It took awhile but I finally got .170 back on it and plan on leaving it alone until 4.3 comes out.

My internet and everything works fine. I actually have a little more memory with this one compared to the Suncom one.

What Blackberry.alx file did you replace it with? Are you trying to add themes? You may see the hourglass for 5-10 minutes when adding themes.

JBlue,
I dunno how much of the upgrade you completed, but expect your phone to be unusable for 45 minutes once the upload starts. The phone will sit there on its last reboot for a LOOOONNNNNGGGG time, with just an hourglass.
