Default Latest OS: 8700 v4.5.0.52 / 4.5.0.37 (includes East Asian Languages)

Please Login to Remove!

GSM Version of 8700 c/f/g/r/v ONLY

This release includes East Asian Languages in addition to English.

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.52 (EastAsia)
Package Version: 4.5.0.52
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.5.0.37
* Software Platform: 2.7.0.55
* File name: 8700EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel52_PL2.7.0.55_A4.5.0.37_V odafone_Dialog_(Sri_Lanka).exe
* File size: 61.12MB


Link: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...5D5E7C5356E9FF and select 8700v from the list

Instructions for installing:

This OS will work on any GSM/GPRS/EDGE 8700c/g/v/f/r
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.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 9000 4.6.0.67)

Same versions as all the other gsm, rel52 4.5.0.37, still would caution Tmo users from loading any .37

Do any ATT users have missing internet browser problem with this build? Actually, I have this problem with each OS 4.5 beta too. Tried all the steps, such as resending service book, register to network, and etc. Still no luck! I only have wap browser. Thanks.

Please look through the "Beta You Than Me" forum as it's been discussed at great length in there.

I've just downloaded this software update, have to admit what a difference!

However just so i don't look and/or sound like a total spanner, i was under the impression i was downloading the v4.5.0.52 software however the package version is v4.5.0.52 whereas the software installed on my phone is v4.5.0.37

Is that right? I just assumed that because the package i was downloading was named v4.5.0.52 i was expecting the software version on my BB to be v4.5.0.52 as well?

Could some kind soul explain this please? or direct me to a thread which already does please?

I upgraded my phone to the new OS last night. I was finally able to run the jl_cmder program to remove the last remnants of the IT policy from my phone. I too noticed the loss of the BB browser icon. Now I only have the WAP browser (T-Zones) icon. It's not that big of a deal at the moment since I'm not paying for BB services and was never able to get the BB browser to work using the WAP settings.

It is just the way RIM numbers its releases... software and apps version does not have to match.

Any known issues with this release so far? Specifically frying TMo SIM cards? I heard that was an issue for a few of the 4.5 OSes for the 8320. I just upgraded an unlocked 8700c (for TMo) to 4.2.1.114. It is great, but I always like to try the latest official release.

Default Browser is a no go here, too

Also lost the RIM facebook application.

Tried all the tips outlined here to get the browser back, but no luck.
As much as I like native spellcheck and HTML, I'm going back to 4.2 for the time being.

I'm on AT&T / 8700c.

This doubly stinks since I'm mainly a Mac user and have to dig out the old PC laptop to do these OS operations...

I can't seem to find it. I had upgraded from 4.0 so maybe that's part of it. I'll be hunting in a moment... thanks!
