OS 4.5 available from Orange UK

OrangeThe latest BlackBerry operating system has been making the rounds by way of private beta builds for awhile now, but it looks like a few carriers are starting to make them publicly available, including Orange UK for the BlackBerry 8120 and BlackBerry 8320, as well as TIM Italy for the 8100, 8300 and 8310. Odds are these will work hunky-dory for your own device, so feel free to give ‘em a shot and get on fresh goodies like HTML e-mail viewing (if your BIS supports it), remote e-mail lookup, native document viewing, and plenty more.

    FYI - If you running Desktop Manager 4.5 it will automatically recreate the vendor and device xmls when you attempt to update. 4.2.2 successfully upgrades the device after deleting the vendor and device.xml
    Didn’t test with 4.3

    I upgraded to Desktop Manager 4.5. Downloaded the 4.5 OS from TIM Italy deleted the Vendor XML file and the upgrade was successfil on my 8100. I like the new OS but I don’t see HTML mail. That was what I was looking for. ??

    I’m on an 8800 on Orange UK which has yet to receive it’s 4.5 upgrade. Is it possible to use the OS from another network’s 8800 on an Orange UK phone?

    Ste8800, I used the other carrier’s OS upgrades for my 8800 and they worked fine.

    For my Orange UK 8800 I tried…

    Vodafone Germany with no luck
    TIM Italy with no luck

    But I’ve now tried Orange Poland and it has worked.
