Odd, just last month on June 1st there was a similar device wide release of device firmware across the board where OS showed up - now this month yet again, on the 1st of the month another huge list of upgrades comes out. Maybe there's some food for thought there.

In any event, has been released for all "older" device from Hutchinson and as such are of course official OS releases so if you are looking for the latest and greatest in the 4.5 flavor be sure to grab whatever one matches your device.

I have an 8310 Curve and live in Canada. is this the version mentioned above I want? It is the only listed under my device. Words East Asia scare me... want to make sure it's english.

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.5.0.254 (EastAsia)

Package Version:
Consisting of:

* Applications:
* Software Platform:
* File name: 8310EastAsia_PBr4.5.0_rel254_PL2.7.0.105_A4.5.0.161_Hutchison.exe
* File size: 87.64MB

I'm currently running OS, I've never had a problem, I can run all the themes I like & all the apps I want rum without a problem, is there really any benefits to updated my OS to this new one?

Well, I've been using this: '8310M_PBr4.5.0_rel257_PL2.7.0.92_A4.5.0.163_O2_UK.exe' on my 8310 with no obvious ill effects.... Wonder what the differences would be?

I would just like to clarify an error in the author's post. This new OS release was not released today as the author wrote. It was posted in the CB forums on the 26th as being an official OS release. Maybe Hutchinson only officially announced it today but it has been officially available since at least the 26th.

Anyway, I've had it running for a few days and it works great!
