Default Latest OS: 8700 4.5.0.174/4.5.0.124 (English & East Asian)

Please Login to Remove!

Software For BlackBerry® 8700 smartphone
Contains English; from Indosat
This will load to any carriers 8700.
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.174 (EastAsia)

Package Version: 4.5.0.174
Consisting of:
  • Applications: 4.5.0.124
  • Software Platform: 2.7.0.92
  • File name: 8700EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel174_PL2.7.0.92_A4.5.0.124 _Indosat.exe
  • File size: 75.1MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Download here:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...B53786A2C5FA09

Instructions for installing on ANY 8700 (regardless of carrier)

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.

go to www.blackberry.com/downloads

and find the link that is labeled Device Software. Follow the directions there until you are prompted to choose your device to find if there are any updates.

Choose the 8700 series.

And you should be able to download 4.5
that version WILL work. Because I installed it not too long ago.

JS thanks for the update. It seems to be on the phone, but the hourglass is still turning. Have 8700 T mobile to use on AT&T. Have installed a purchased unlock code, but couldn't use the phone(emergency calls only) See if this works. and thanks again

Okay, I just downloaded this update and installed it onto my backup BlackBerry. Now when I go and check the info on my "Help Me!" screen, I get

Platform: 2.7.0.66
App Version: 4.5.0.52 (75)

I disconnect the phone, restart my computer and then go into the Add/Remove program applet to make sure its saying what it should. The information on the installed 8700 software is

Version: 4.5.0.124 (Platform 2.7.0.92)

I reconnect the phone and then load the DM, expecting it to say that my software needs updating, but it does not.

What am I missing?

UPDATE: I just tried to go to updating manually in the DM and I notice that it has two options there, and is selecting the older of the two options and not the new one that I just installed. Why is that and how do I fix it?

Updated my Blackberry 8700R
Previous version was .81

Installation was completed in about 30 minutes, the fastest installation ever!

Post-Installation shows some lag but that may just be at first. This is a corporate use Blackberry and get's a lot of usage. Will advise later.

Default Does desktop manager not check for OS updates?

I have an 8700, platform v2.00.152, app 4.1.0.377. Connected to the desktop manager and selected Application Loader, then the check device software updates button. It connects to the device, and then says there are no software updates available for your device. Given that I see there is a new OS version available, how do I interpret this? Does the new OS version not work on my device, is the Loader/Checker checking for something other than OS version and for some reason ignoring that?

Background appreciated.

Default Delete the vendor.xml file

Good evening,

The reason that Desktop Manager is not indicating that there is a new OS available is likely due to the fact that the Vendor.xml file located at "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader" does not include your carrier. Just delete that file and reconnect your device. While your at it, I would recommend following the tips located here to ensure that your BB is optimized.

4.5.0.124 PROBLEMS !!! Has anyone running this formware on the 8700 had issues with the "enter key - next to $) acting as a down arrow in the call log and P(ause) and W(aits) not being stored with the correct symbols in addressbook and subsequently causing the call to be dropped when called from addressbook ?

Also a really obtuse question maybe, if I select a lower level firmware say 4.5.0.102 for the 8100 Pearl, will this break my device ?

Default Error reading setup initialization file?

Has anyone seen this error message when you download and double click the OS update (screen attached)? I tried this with and without the vendor file present in programs/common/rim; same result.

Any ideas?
