Default Downgrading From 4.5 to 4.3??

Please Login to Remove!

I've been trying to downgrade from 4.5 to 4.3 all day today with no luck. I've read the easy to follow steps but ALL the links I've found says I can find the BB OS 4.3 here...
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

That just let's me download Desktop Manager Version 4.3. Where do I download the Device Software???

I have downloaded the 4.3 Desktop Manager and plugged my BB Curve 8310 thinking it would auto download the device's version but it didn't. I clicked on the Application Loader but nothing happened.
I even went and deleted the vendor and still nothing.

I want to downgrade cause after I upgraded to 4.5, the ringtones on my device weren't nearly as loud as with the previous version I had on my phone.

Someone please help
Thanks

There is NO OS 4.3 for the 8310. It was never released to any carrier.

You might choose to downgrade to a 4.2 version. It is listed right there in your link you provided, by using the 8310 link.

Sure you want to downgrade just because of a ring tone volume? 4.5 brings so much more to the BB then 4.2 did. I personally would be inclined to live with that minor inconvenience. But to each his own I guess.

I also miss the volume loudness of 4.2.....its like night and day!! But the benefits of 4.5 are far greater than the volume issue..but still do put out a plea for the return of the VOLUME!
