    Hey all,

    I got the 8820 as a gift and Im wondering if I can update the firmware to 4.5 without going thro tmobile. Is there anyway I can download it from blackberry.com or the stickied thread up on the page. I would appreciate help in regards to this subject.

    Thanks.

    Either follow the directions contained here http://forums.crackberry.com/f33/new...-124-a-137967/ or just download the software, run it, go to program files / common files / research in motion / apploader, then delete the vendor.xml file and then run the apploader.exe.

    Note that there is a lot of this information already available should you choose to search the forums....
