    Software
    For BlackBerry Curve (TM) 8310 smartphone

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.304 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.5.0.304
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.5.0.181
    * Software Platform: 2.7.0.108
    * File name: 8310M_PBr4.5.0_rel304_PL2.7.0.108_A4.5.0.181_Sunri se.exe
    * File size: 90.99MB

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

    Download

    Instructions to install on ANY 8310 from ANY 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.

    8310- only. Upgraded my Curve earlier this afternoon and haven't had a chance to check it out any differences fom the last upgrade - which will be different for each user. But, easy upload with no issues.
