Default OS: 8800 4.5.0.108/4.5.0.81 (English + East Asian Languages)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® 8800 smartphone
This will work on any carrier's 8800 model.

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.108 (English + EastAsia languages)

Package Version: 4.5.0.108
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.5.0.81
* Software Platform: 2.7.0.78
* File name: 8800EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel108_PL2.7.0.78_A4.5.0.81_ Voda_Australia.exe
* File size: 71.87MB

Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Click here to download

Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 8800:

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.

Available memory went up. I installed it on my 8800 this morning. Shows 31638436 bytes free.

I have been running 4.5.0.81 on my 8310 for a couple of days now. It shows a similar improvement and seems to be a bit quicker than 4.5.0.69 that I had used for about a month.

Yowza. I just finished the upgrade and I've got more free memory, too. ~25 MB, and I've got loads of 3rd party stuff running.

Pretty snappy, too.

I'll report back with any issues or news I might find...

Mine is done upgrading. 25MB free memory too. Maybe it's a bug that it is reporting the same for everyone ;). It was 16MB pre-upgrade.

This is OS is much faster than my previous 4.5 version. It also has an AT&T theme that was not present on the earlier version.

This OS has options for adding Chinese fonts. However, this particular OS is not for an 8830. It's for the 8800. It won't work.

Having some weird issue with BB Messenger with people unable to message me. The other person always see the message that I'm typing a message. Problem seems to occur over time. Gonna roll back to previous version.

Wirelessly posted (BB 11020)

The latest version of Google works for BES users who used to get the lockups at 90%. It should be GMM 2.3.1

Yes. This should work for South Asia. What language is your input language? English? Chinese? ...

Does 2.3.1 work out of the box, or did you install while on OS 4.2 and then upgrade to 4.5? I did the install then update the OS and it works for me, too.

It should work fine installing fresh to OS 4.5, I did just that.

I see a couple of users have had issues with it working, however.

I am happy with this one. I was for a month on 4.5.0.81, and had absolutely no problem. Then I moved to 4.5.0.92 from Orange France, and that one had crashes and was acting slow everywhere. Then I moved to this one 108, and I am back to a stable snappy OS ....

I've got T-Mobile and this OS seems more stable than the previous one that came loaded on the phone. I have not had one problem yet and installation was a breeze.

HTML e-mail is a big plus too.
