Thumbs up Latest OS: 8830 v4.2.2.353 / 4.2.2.196 Bell Mobility

Please Login to Remove!

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.2.353 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.2.2.353
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.2.2.196
Software Platform: 3.0.0.81
File name: 8830EFS_PBr4.2.2_rel353_PL3.0.0.81_A4.2.2.196_Bell _Mobility.exe
File size: 88.83MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Download Here.

Instructions for installing to ANY CARRIER's 8830:

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
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. Previous OS https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E607FE7CC0E1A0


Previous OS version can be found (here.)

I will have to benchmark my battery ... However it's 85% after 24 hours... Anyone else noticed the improved battery life?

Unhappy Problem

I dont think these a reall updates but only particular for the provider service, but i could be wrong.

Well it installed perfect and put in all my 3rd apps no problem.
But i had some data isues and audio isues,
This is after i redid service books and more.
I always have 1XEV Never a data freeze or drop, but after the upgrade i got
1xev and NO data working till i turned the radio on and off, Next i had all sudden while on the fone with good signal a volume drop so low i could not hear the other person unless i restarted the dailing again, dont know if this is from the upgrade or conflict with other 3rd party software.

I did revert back to the old telus Firmware 76 my data dropped and froze to many times, never had that before.

So there's no documentation or release notes anywhere that states what the new features or enhancements are?

Install went seamless for me, I've had no connection issues and it seems to be snappier on loading apps like browser and opera. I've run into no issues thus far.
