New BlackBerry Desktop Manager v4.3 Available for Download from Vodafone!?!

Desktop Manager 4.3 Available for Download!

UPDATE UPDATE: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.3 is now available from Vodafones Website. Click Here for Details

UPDATE: I thought maybe the download was pulled but it's still there... the server is probably just getting hammered by visitors and is going really, really slow. Use the comments to this post to keep people in the loop! Keep in mind it there's a chance it might not work by the time you read this...

I'm not sure if this was an intentional release or not, but it seems that a copy of BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.3 is available for download on Vodafone's FTP site. Note, this isn't the Operating System 4.3.1 update mentioned in previous posts (that will soon let your Curve record video!), this is the Desktop Manager that syncs your BlackBerry to your Windows Computer. It's the multi-language edition, so it should work for everyone. We can't find any reference to this file on Vodafone's actual website, so it may be a bit of a slip up.

As of this posting the URL is working, so if you want to give it a go then the onus is on you and of course CrackBerry.com takes no responsibility. We just report the news as we hear it/find it/make it! If you want it I'd pull it fast as it may not be there for long :)

The site is getting slammed with requests or Vodaphone FINALLY caught onto the fact people had found it, anyone who wants it and is not able to pull it off of the site PM me.

scmurphy13

i can't even get on the site.

michael omode

do you have a copy?

casinojames

Can't seem to figure out how to PM you though.

mattfutch

Just let the site sit in another window for awhile and it gives you the download prompt

It still works, but it takes MANY tries. I am connected and downloading now, but it is slow, says that it will take over 2 hours.

ok guys and gals whats the verdict is this a working program and does it work the video portion like the 4.3.1 ? thanks

Anonymous

It works fine, looks like just a UI upgrade from what I can tell, but can't find the option to hide when minimized, so that sucks.

Mr. H

As of 2P Pacific Time, I was able to access the site and download Desktop Manager 4.3. The download took a painful ~ 2hours over a cable connection. It installed easily on an old laptop running WIN2000. It has a more elegant interface but the clunky Roxio Media Manager is still there - more work needed with that.

blackberryforme

Well,

I got there. BUT, I have dsl and it said that it would take 3 hours? What's up with that. No thanks. I think I will wait for the later version from the Blackberry site itself.

Thanks anyway.

Demyxxx

or is it just for a specific BBERRY?

Steven@Themes4BB

I am also hosting Download Manager 4.3 on my website (themes4bb.com)

http://www.themes4bb.com/t4bbforum/showthread.php?t=1591

It took me almost 2 hours to download fromt he main site, and only 20 minutes form my server.

Hope everyone enjoys!

I got it to download last night. The speeds suck because the site is slammed (took over 4 hours to download on a T3 connection), but it works. Nothing really special or new, it just looks cool now. Any of yall that couldn't get it, PM me, otherwise, like I said, it's not THAT special, you aren't missing out on that much to wait for the official release.

TomsCruise

I am so new to this so please help me out. What is this program used for? Do I need to put this on my BB? I have my first BB it is the 8830W. Thanks in advance for not attacking the newb.

Desktop Manager is the program installed onto Windows (not your BlackBerry) that allows you to sync the BlackBerry to your computer (outlook contacts, address book, etc) and perform backups, and load/remove applications, update your BlackBerry's Operating System, etc.

RIM will probably "officially" release this soon, so if you're new to BlackBerrys you may want to hold of. But I downloaded it and installed it and it seemed smooth.

The model of your BlackBerry doesn't matter as it's not installed onto the BlackBerry, rather your PC. It should work with anything in the newer generation (8700s, pearls, curves, 8800 series, etc.)

hurwitzmm

I have an 8700C (4.1X OS)...Can I use this new version?

blackseed07

Skawt

Can't hide when started or minimized. Otherwise it works fine.

Karamba

Got a copy that was shared, and it seems to work just fine with 4.2.2 8830...

visi0n

does this version sync up with my BB OTA? or is it the same with a new face?

jcj1

seems same with new face, also not everything works. could be due to busy site and download issues

Mike Mackey

i had a little trouble with the self-extractor not closing once the installer started. got it to install correctly finally, but now the media manager is messed up. it opens fine, but then tries to install the media manager and can't finsd the correct file. Any suggestions?

Denny

I have d/l the DM v4.3, but I could not find the Media Manager as it's showed in your screen shot above. Anyone could enlighten me? And yes the version of the DM is version 4.3.0.15 [Aug 15, 2007]. Thanks!

Anonymous

Hi, I d/l'd and same thing. No media manager.

Did you get any help on this?

Ken

John J

downloaded and mine has MM but no sync. think the site being slammed is reeking havoc with downloads and not send all data through correctly

-justin-

the same thing happened to me.
did u ever find out how to fix it?

Bukzin

I'm thinking it may be useful to have both versions
(the one that came with my Cingular Pearl and this
new 4.3 version).

Good idea?

If so, should I place the new one in the same file
as the old?

Can any of you comment on using this new one
with the Pearl?

Thanks,
Bukzin

have to install to new folder or will over write, may over write no matter what but new folder should give both options

rv02tx

I got the download, but now when I run it I'm getting a "not a valid WIN32 application" Hints?!

Sounds like your download was truncated.
File size might help determine this.
"BlackBerry Desktop Software v4.3 (English) (209.712 Mb)"

Looks to be down now. Says forbidden. Although, if anyone would like to share...

And I assume this is mostly important for its managing of media (Music, tones, pictures, video)? how's it?

John J

looks nice but does not setup correctly! did not let me sync and did not reinstall correctly. tried to re-download and link doesn't work, comes up forbidden

Wrigley

Did anybody get the media player working? Please let me know how!

Conrad II

I got it from an another users upload and it works fine.

Mike Mackey

It is now on Blackberry's website. I just downloaded it.

I download but it did not upgrade my cell pone blackberry curve and i went click on application loader but there was nothing but it did downloaded but did not upload my cell phone. i was so mad at that

ARM0001

Hey guys, I'm downloading the 4.3 Desktop Manager, but before installing I'd like to find out if the stupid Roxio media manager is bundled with the software, or RIM went back to using its own Media Manager?

bob ely

I just upgraded from 4.1 to 4.3 desktop manager software. and when I first connect all is fine, device connect is correct it shows my pin number is ok. The desk top manager is controlled with the Roxio software is this the problem?

But now when I enter Media Manager and in the lower window is shows my device it will not connect, the resynchronize and and back up work great.

I would like to be able to get my e-mail off the unit and add some new ringtones.

My phone is a 7100g model

Thanks with any help

Apollo_Creed

I'm having that same problem. I have a 7100i. It keeps showing that my device is not connected even though it syncs fine and everything else. We're looking for some of you strong Crackberry Addicts to help us out on how to manipulate that part of the system so to speak to get it working. Thanks!!!

WHERE I CAN DESCEND THE ONE DESKTOP MANANGER 4.3 FOR BLAC BERRY CURVE

Jilyjo

Besides synching your blackberry to your PC, can you manage your contacts on the Desktop Manager? You know, basic stuff like adding/deleting contact on the PC, then synching it to your BB? Seems like a very basic thing, but can't find it on the desktop manager!!!

ron pittman

i would like to find some software like the palm stuff for the bb 8830.
i can't imagine it not being available somewhere.

Vecs

I just got the new blackberry curve. I had the 8700 and have it set up to sync (version 4.1.8 I think) with my outlook 2007 using Windows vista. Do I need to install the new software for the curve or can I just go ahead and sync with my current software version to load all my contacts and calendar to my new phone and go from there?

Vinnie P

its under the advances options.. click on the field on the right column, and then click the "clear" button below the info fields!

You can also get v 4.3 for free from www.blackberry.com..

Anonymouse

the reason i'm here is that there is no way I'm gonna fill out that form on the official Blackberry download site. 'cos I'm a just a kid- with no business name or any of that stuff! And I'm not creative enough to make up a bunch of stuff to write in the form...

Hawk

Gezz people! Just download it directly from Blackberry! What the heck is with all this software fiending!?

Doc714

The 4.3v is available thru the BB website with or without the media manager. I believe they even have 4.5v up for download as well...Took me a whole 5 min with cable connection. Hope this helps!

I've been trying to fix my BlackBerry 3120 for at least 2 months now. I never set up the disk when I first got it because it worked fine. Now that it's saying "JVM Error 545 incompatible or corrupt filesystem" I've tried downloading the Desktop Manager. After it's downloaded I try to open it but it keeps saying "BlackBerry Desktop Manager is not a valid Win 32 application". Someone please help!!!!
