    Problems downloading 8707v Handheld software

    Advertisement



    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:
    https://www.blackberry.com/SoftwareD...ient=ehna2gcRj

    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.

    The latest OS available for the 8707 is v4.2.2.186 (in bold below) which does have a few enhancements over 4.2.1. Here's a list of 8707 Sites:
    AIS Thailand - v4.2.1.105

    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...)
