    8320 software upgrade

    hey guys i was wondering if anyone could tell me how to upgrade my software version past what my provider has said is the latest one?

    main reason is i want to upgrade my bbm to 5.0 and ive seen that it does not work on the 8300 unless you have 4.5.0.131 or higher and i only have4.5.0.81

    any advice would be awesome.

    Thanks

    New guy

    Welcome to BlackberryOS. I have 4.5.0.161 running just fine on my 8320. You can download it here. Please be sure you scroll down and download the correct version. It will say:

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.254 (EastAsia)

    Package Version: 4.5.0.254
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.5.0.161
    * Software Platform: 2.7.0.105
    * File name: 8320EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel254_PL2.7.0.105_A4.5.0.16 1_Hutchison.exe
    * File size: 88.91MB

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

    * Download Software
    Double check when you begin your download that the filename is correct. To install read the guideline linked below. You will need to remove the vendor.xml file.

    Also may I ask what version of Desktp Manager are you using?

    is there any truth to the rumor that i need to have 4.5.0.131 in order for bbm 5 to work on my 8320?

    Yes. The newer the version, the more likely it is to work. I would go with at least .138.
