Blackberry OS Needed.

I need Blackberry OS 4.5 for my 8310. The Blackberry has been wiped, but I have no OS that I can load. I have tried loading the OS's from Blackberry but the ones that I have downloaded apploader says it cannit load to my phone because it is not compatible. I cannot even get the downloads any more because the site isn't that intuitive...or maybe I'm just stupid. Can sayone point me in the right direction? I currently am 507'd.

See the link below for the download, and follow these simple installation instructions.

1. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.


(choose Free Download Area > Endgeräte > BlackBerry > then your device model #)


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.
