Software For BlackBerry® 8820 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.255 (EastAsia + English)
Package Version: 4.5.0.255
Consisting of:
* Applications: 4.5.0.162
* Software Platform: 2.7.0.103
* File name: 8820EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel255_PL2.7.0.103_A4.5.0.16 2_Vodafone_Essar_Limited__for_Hutch_Essar_devices_ .exe
* File size: 88.73MB
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...356FCC56D801D1

This download is from Hutchison but will work on ANY carrier's 8820 model BB. (Not 8800 or 8830)

1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded. (Vista users be sure to right click on the .exe file and select "Run As Adminstrator.")
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.

A step back in the platform version?

Wish I understood more about incremental OS releases and why certain carriers use particular combinations of things...

Regardless, thanks for posting.

That is interesting. I wonder why as well.

Thank you JSanders.

When I click on the link, I am taken to a page where I select my device (8820), but the language and filename do not match exactly what you show. The language is (EastAsia) not (EastAsia + Engish) and the filename has Vodafone_Essar_Limited__for_Hutch_Essar_devices_ .exe


I see:
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.255 (EastAsia)

Package Version: 4.5.0.255
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.5.0.162
* Software Platform: 2.7.0.103
* File name: 8820EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel255_PL2.7.0.103_A4.5.0.16 2_Vodafone_Essar_Limited.exe
* File size: 88.73MB


I want to make sure I get it right. My nephew has a new Bold which came with Docs-to-Go spreadsheets, which my 8820's OS 4.5 didn't have. I only have Word and Presentations apps. Does the new OS upgrade include that?
