Talking OS: 8700 4.5.0.81 / 4.5.0.55 (MultiLanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® 8700 smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.81 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.5.0.81
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.5.0.55
Software Platform: 2.7.0.68
File name: 8700M_PBr4.5.0_rel81_PL2.7.0.68_A4.5.0.55_F100.exe
File size: 63.82MB

Download link: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...94685E4F4D1E5C


Instructions for installing on ANY 8700 (regardless of carrier)

1. Make sure you have Desktop Manager 4.2 SP2 or higher installed. If not, get it here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22
2. Download the above file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the OS 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.

I'm curious to see if anyone is getting the browser issue on AT&t again. I had one phone that upgraded fine to that last rev fine... and the next didn't pull the browser.

Anyone upgrade with at&t yet?

On the 8700 the main differences are the addition of Documents To Go, the browser and HTML email. Most everything else is transparent. The 8700 does work very well with 4.5, though.

From 4.5.0.75 to this is usually just minor bugs that we won't see graphically.. Little things like compatiblility with a certain bluetooth headset.. Under certain conditions, e-mail won't be marked as read.. If a voice note is exactly 42 seconds long, a Java Exception.. Little things like that.. We prolly won't even see it unless a lot of users have the same problem. :P

Default 8700c Tmobile OS

Hey guys and gals, I've downloaded the Tmobile OS for an 8700 that is currently branded for CIngular. Once I connect the phone, Desktop Manager never askes me to upgrade the phones firmware/OS. Is there a way to manually update the phone? Does it have to be unlocked first? Bottom line is It's an 8700C Cingular and I want to use it on Tmobile and have a Tmobile OS. How do I do this?

Thanks

JM

Default Problem with connecting

I had the desktop manager and then downloaded the new 4.5 os from this thread link, and then deleted the vendor.xml file, and installed both, then when i open the desktop manager and connect my bb, a smaller window comes up that says "please wait" and its been there for hours and nothing has come across the status bar. Any ideas? - Thanks

My friend has an 8703. Will this 8700 version of 4.5 install on the 8703? I have never actually seen a version of 4.5 for the 8703.

Question 8700C Help

Need some help. Just bought a 8700C (Cingular/ATT). It's not locked and works on tmobile my current carrier. Is it safe to download the lastest desktop and hand held software and use it on this device. I don't see this model listed in the handheld software drop down. I see 8700 Smartphone and 8700G. Which one should be selected.

ATT links to BBs downloads area, and shows v4.2.1.155 (Multilanguage) as the highest level for the hand held (8700C) and 4.3 on the desktop.

Any input/feedback is appreciated.
