Upgrading Curve 8310 to OS 4.5 - Need help!

I have read many of these posts in this forum and have done everything that was reccommended. I have a BB Curve 83.10 with OS 4.22 installed. I am running Desktop software 4.7. I am trying to upgrade to OS 4.5. I have AT&T for my carrier and aware they have not released it yet. I have deleted the vendor.xml file and tried to update but i get that error bad connection and try again or it STILL says you are already running the latest version of software. And this is with that vendor.xml file deleted completely! I have rebooted and tried several ways. Can anyone point out what I doing wrong here?  thanx!

1. Make certain your USB cable is connected to one of the PC's main rear USB ports. Not a USB hub, nor a monitor USB port, nor a USB port on the front of the PC.

 

2. Read this:  http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-blackberry-discussion/159789-why-won-t-my-os-update-i-delete...

 

Good luck.

I have done everything step by step. still the same 2 messages, either my software is up to date or unable to connect please try again later. I am doing this on a newer HP notebook and I have 3 USB ports on here and have tried all of them. I must be missing something...very frustrating

Thanx for the help! I plug my usb cable into my notebook and my BB and do a thourough search for that vendor.xml file. If I see it I delete and search again for sure.. Load the update from the BB site and it aumatically loads the updater program and connetcs to my BB and that's when it gives me the message. Ill try it again and the same thing. I removed desktop mgr and updater4.7 and reinstalled them again without the auto update option.

Updating throught the BB Update will NOT update an ATT phone. It is pin based- ATT has not released it yet.

You must follow instructions posted in threads to install another carrier's OS.

Re: Upgrading Curve 8310 to OS 4.5 - Need help!

ragorman, im confused now since the other posts stress there is only 1 OS software and other carriers add thier crap and advertisements to it making it thier own. What is the "pin" deal with AT&T? If i download and install another carrier's version (alltell or verizon, etc..) will i have to deal with thier branded items on my AT&T phone?

Whoa, stop. lol, you are thinking too much.

 

If you want the OS 4.5 from another carrier you must load it manually and NOT used the web-based upgrade.

 

Here is a link the latest OS 4.5 for the 8310

http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-8300-series-discussion-curve/159564-latest-os-8310-4-5-0-134...

 

Follow those instruction EXACTLY as listed (and you WILL need to delete the vendor.xml file again) and you will be fine.
