Latest OS: 8700 4.5.0.92/4.50.69 (Multilanguage)
 
BlackBerry 8700 Smartphone [f]

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.92 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.5.0.92
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 4.5.0.69
  • Software Platform: 2.7.0.72
  • File name: 8700M_PBr4.5.0_rel92_PL2.7.0.72_A4.5.0.69_Orange_F rance.exe
  • File size: 63.65MB
Download here:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...A5DFF913DF997A Scroll to the bottom of the list and choose "BlackBerry 8700 Smartphone [f]"

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 upgraded an 8700c that I had previously unlocked. The upgrade installed fine, but now it seems that it has re-locked to AT&T (note I did remove the vendor.xml file). I don't have my unlock code handy, but I'll try it if I can find it. Has anyone else experienced this? When I insert my T-Mobile SIM, I get an "Initialization Failed" message. I've tried taking the battery and SIM out and restarting.

Any ideas?

Note I had my T-Mobile SIM in the BB for the entire process.

Upgraded !!
 
All went well. The onlyn thing I have noticed is that now whe I synchonize with Outlook the Adress book I got an error if doing the 2 way sync. In only works if doing One way sync (from device to Outlook)

My solution so far has been to downgrade to 4.2. Under 4.1, my T-Mobile SIM worked just fine. Under 4.2, it works fine, but if I power it down, the only way to avoid an "initialization failed" message on restart is to remove and reinsert the battery (an AT&T SIM handles this OK). Under 4.5, I get the initialization failed error message all the time with the T-Mobile SIM, even if I remove and reinsert the battery.

Once you figure out how to enter your information the download will be in English.

I am selecting "Terminal mobile BlackBerry(MC) 8700f" and the only 2 downloads it offers are 4.1:

- Version: 4.1.0.191
- BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.1.0.391 (Multilanguage)

What am I missing? Has the 4.5 version been removed??

Might I recommend adding that to the original post to help those who also may be confused with it?

Thanks,

John Clark 09-16-2008 11:07 AM

Done.

jweaver100 09-18-2008 12:29 PM

I did the upgrade this morning and all went well.. But I have just discovered that I can't do ALT+I and ALT+O under messages (to show Out and In boxes)..

This certainly worked before, so I can only confirm that its a bug introduced by the new firmware.. Can anyone else confirm this?

I have already pulled the battery just in case, but I still have the same problem.

I came from 4.2, but what happened to the delete on "Handheld and Mailbox" feature when deleting emails?
