Default OS: 8330 4.5.0.281/4.5.0.169 ESN Devices (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® Curve (TM) 8330 smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.281 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.5.0.281
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.5.0.169
* Software Platform: 3.4.0.51
* File name: 8330uAMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel281_PL3.4.0.51_A4.5.0.169_Ce llular_South.exe
* File size: 83.18MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Download Here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...C9D4DB0C6BBE45

Instructions for installing 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.

For the previous OS, see this link:http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ilanguage.html

How to determine if you have an ESN or MEID based device.
From the main menu, select Options, then select Status.
ESN devices - On the Status screen you will see ESN on the display
MEID devices – On the Status screen you will see MEID on the display.
NOTE – You cannot install ESN-based software on a MEID device, nor can you install MEID-based software on an ESN device. They are NOT interchangeable.

Downloading, I guess this means I'll have to set my comp at home so I can install. The family has been bugging me to get it set up so they can play games. Now I have a GOOD reason to get it set up...LOL

Installed and activated on BES. I'll play around with it for a few days and see how things go. Hopefully it's stable.

Nice find.

As for release notes....I haven't ever seen release notes with an OS. Usually you find out what's new from other people who have installed the OS.

I even emailed RIM but that was a dead end. You would think that the developers who wrote the OS upgrade would post release notes indicating what was fixed, added, or removed. I don't know why this has to be a mystery for the end user to figure out. An upgrade was written for a reason so why not post what was changed? If anyone knows where they have hidden such notes, please let us know!

A lot of time the .xxx releases are bug fixes anyway, not major feature upgrades.

There are no hidden notes, but if you find the windmill, please let us know.

Was this "AudioBoost" a feature in the previous version? Tonight was my first time seeing it.

Go to something that uses the Browser's media feature, and turn the volume all the way up, and then some. You'll get a notice saying "You are now activating AudioBoost, this can permanently damage your hearing. Proceed?" with Yes, No, and More Information as choices.

Handy for using in the car with Aux, but I bet it drains the battery. Probably not worth it.

Seems ok so far on my Verizon Wireless 8330. Waiting to encounter the beep/blip/annoying sound.

Finally upgraded this morning. Nothing has exploded and there was minimal smoke.

I have the East Asia one installed now so I can write in Chinese - am I able to download the multilanguage one as well, or will it replace the East Asia one?

What languages does the "multilanguage" package support, and what languages does it allow you to type in?

Thanks

According to your profile you have the 8310. This OS is for the 8330. It will not work on your device.

I have this app version installed on my 8310 currently. One thing I have noticed, and I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing this issue because I'm running a hybrid, but when I reboot my device, all startup apps are open upon startup, ie. Browser, Phone, BBM, Messages. Kinda strange issue, but other than that, this app version is a solid release. Free memory is extremely high, battery life is good, Memory leaking and recovery is solid.

I think I found in the Media Player, were the Play/Pause Backward/Forward keys would not work, I was able to navigate just find when I clicked my trackball to play the song it would not play.. A battery pull fixed it for now.
