You'll find a copy of BBM v7 at this link, to download from your device (not via PC).

They'r'e listed by OS version. Look on your device in Options >About and look on the 3rd line down for your OS version and then download the version that matches your OS (i.e. 7.0 or 7.1.)

Remove the battery and reinsert. Then try again.

Re: downgrade from bbm 8 to bbm 7

Then you clicked on the wrong thing.

I just clicked on BBM for OS 7.0 and it gave me a .jad file to download BBM.

Try this link:
