Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry Curve 8310 (TM)

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.2.351 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.2.2.351
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.2.2.194
Software Platform: 2.5.0.44
File name: 8310M_PBr4.2.2_rel351_PL2.5.0.44_A4.2.2.194_TIM.ex e
File size: 97.25MB

Click -->>>>https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...190CAAD5802983 and select 8310 from the list

Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 8310:

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Desktop Manager installed.
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's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
4. Plug in BB 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."
If you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to DM again and run application loader again and it should load the OS to the device.

To find the previous OS version for this device, click

You are one of the kind...

Until 4.5/4.3 is out, this OS is the newest and I am pretty sure a lot of people (other than you) will be happy to try this out.

Obviously, this is not for you

Cool - will give it a try.

4.5 would be fine, but there is NO defintiv release date, so why wait for this? If 4.5 would have not ben announced everybody would say "4.2.2.194 - COOL, a new release". I would be laughin if they call the 4.5er firmware 4.2.2.500

Unhappy Problem Loading OS

I have had a problem loading the last two OS releases. I go through all the steps to load the new OS (as described above) and after it has loaded the new OS and rebooted the BB, in the final steps of reloading the data (I think "loading phone settings" is displayed on the update manager progress window) the progress bar halts. I look at the BB and it says, "App Error 523, reset". No option but to select "reset". Then the apploader (on the desktop) aborts the final steps of loading. The BB reboots. I finish the loading of data via a restore of the backup made during the update process in the desktop manager. Everything seems to work fine (no errors during use or reboots), but it should finish the update properly, right? It does show the new OS version in the About pages, etc. And all the 3rd party apps work fine. Any ideas?

I installed this update and now the camera application is missing from my phone. Anyone know how to get it installed again without downgrading to a previous OS?

Double check that the icon is not hidden.

The application was actually missing. I modified the platform.alx file and reloaded the OS and now it works properly.

I installed early this morning and so far have had no problems. Feels a tad bit faster than 4.2.2.184.

I installed this yesterday and since then my browser no longer works. It continually says ' A communication failure has occurred. The server may be busy, please try again later. If the problem persists please contact your service provide.'
This happens on every site. Anyone else have this problem?

I had a similar issue also. When mine rebooted, it automatically set the browser to TZones. Resetting it through options to Internet/Hotzone Browser eliminated the issue for me.

Remember to put in the APN configuration. At least I have to change it back to wap.voicestream.com (no username or password) for T-Mobile after I upgrade OS.

I installed this on my Curve 8310 yesterday.
Installation went thru perfectly.
Working fine since yesterday but no change
from the previous version.
