Problems downloading 8707v Handheld software
I've tried to download a number of different carrier specific handheld software packages from the BlackBerry.com site, and each one ends up not working.
Either the download fails, or the completed download is corrupted... ("Error reading setup initialization file" message)
I am using an 8707v on Vodafone in the Netherlands, and using this entrypoint to the BB site:
Any guesses on this? I've tried it on a couple of different computers to make sure my laptop isn't the problem, and I am getting the same result.
Any chance this is a problem with blackberry's servers that I am downloading from? Any suggestions around it greatly appreciated. Would love it if someone could put it on yousendit or rapidshare. Honestly, I've no idea how to resolve this.
Try using another vendor's OS. Just rename or delete the file:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Vendor.xml
so that your device will "see" it. Uninstall any other OS installs you have before installing the one you select.

Unfortunately I was having download problems, not problems installing the software itself..
It seems there was some communication error between my ISP (or computer?) and blackberryy's download servers leading to corrupted or incomplete downloads.
Had someone in the states download and transfer to me over google talk, and everything works fine now. Except I cannot download google maps for BlackBerry. (error : invalid manifest or application descriptor...)
