OS: 8330 4.5.0.101/4.5.0.77 (Multilanguage)
 
This is for the 8330 model, and will load on any carrier's 8330.

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8330 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.101 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.5.0.101
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 4.5.0.77
  • Software Platform: 3.2.0.51
  • File name: 8330uAMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel101_PL3.2.0.51_A4.5.0.77_Fas t_100.exe
  • File size: 68.06MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

**UPDATED 10/31/2008 to include Download from the Verizon website here:
BlackBerry® Software Updates Verizon Has now Pulled 4.5!

Download from the Cellular South carrier here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...C9D4DB0C6BBE45

The only difference between the Verizon version and Cellular South version is the download site. Both are multi-language versions

Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 8330:

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.

Thanks to Garz08 for the notification.

Nice finds on these, only if the 8830 would get some "official" love.

nosidam 09-24-2008 04:08 PM

So now the obvious question...I've been running 4.5.0.77 (platform 3.2.0.51) for a few weeks now. Any point to installing this?

JSanders 09-24-2008 04:15 PM

No. .77 = .77 whether official or "unreleased".

Same thing.

That's what I figured. Thanks.

One problem I ran into with 4.5.0.x is that whenever I would go into BB Messenger after installing an app with DM, it would complain that I got a new device and it wanted to send everyone in my contact list my updated PIN. Of course, nothing changed, and BB Messenger would not work properly after that.

The problem was remedied by placing the 4.3 version of BB Messenger into the 4.5 directory, and it's been running smoothly since.

Does anyone know the differences between this version (4.5.0.77) and the previous one that had been posted here (4.5.0.56)? Thanks! Also, I'm very interested to know if this upgrade eliminates the "force roaming" option on the Sprint 8330 (as the previous versions of 4.5 have done).

serpico007 09-24-2008 05:40 PM

Let's go Telus users, who is going first?!
If it works, I'll boot up vmware & XP on my mac and give it a shot. :)

I wish they'd fix the media player problem.

My video files (direct MP4 rips from DVD) always played perfectly in 4.3, yet always freeze up the player under 4.5, then turn the screen white when the file is done. Battery pull then becomes necessary.

Anybody else had any video problems under 4.5?

Will this OS upgrade work with a Sprint phone?

juwaack68 09-24-2008 07:10 PM

Yes, it will. Just follow the instructions and it will install fine.

It will work with the Sprint BB 8330 (It will work with any branded 8330). You must follow the directions in the first post.

jam116 09-24-2008 07:16 PM

Thanks..

jam116 09-24-2008 07:18 PM

One more thing..
Will I loose my company email settings?

juwaack68 09-24-2008 07:20 PM

You will have to reactivate your device if you're connected to a company BES server. Meaning, you will have to ask for an enterprise activation password.

And your BES Admin will be able to tell what version you have installed.

jam116 09-24-2008 07:20 PM

Thanks

My problem is NONE of my videos will play... :cry:


Nothing that was on the phone before... not videos recorded using the camcorder, converted videos, mms videos received.. all of them get an error.. :?

Weird thing is, I received a couple videos from my brother (after the upgrade) and they played in my inbox... when i saved the same videos, they will not play from the media player.. (n)

Hey, guys....new to the forum and new to BB. I just got mine at the beginning of the month. I have v4.3.0.127 now...is this update required or suggested? What does it do? Please forgive my ignorance...again, I'm new to BB. I just returned from Germany (I'm in the military).

Thanks,
Tim

Anyone notice their text/sms messages freezing for a few seconds after sending each message? Just wanted to know if it was just mine after upgrading.

Slovak 09-25-2008 05:47 AM

Anyone know if the mms on Alltel works with this build?
