Handheld code version 4.3 for the 8300 curve?

Tell me there is a way to get 4.3 of blackberry handheld code on the 8300 curve!!!

I know they have it for the 8110. I need it so that I can make vids. Rogers doesn't offer this software for the curve but I was hoping that someone would know of any place to get 4.3 for the curve (even from another service provider). I don't see any reason that it wouldn't work :S

This software isn't available yet.  The firmware is no longer referred to as 4.3 but has now been renamed to firmware 4.5; this is to coincide with the new features of BES 4.1 service pack 5 (e.g. All the updates of BES 4.1 SP5 need 4.5 handheld firmware).

Here is an overview of the updates per device:

Just as an update for everyone who has read this question seeking the answer...

Today I spoke to someone who claimed to have version 4.5 on his 8300 - said he got it off of an online source. However when he downloaded it, his blackberry attachment service disappeared and he could not open any attatchments.

I was also able to use a torrent to get 4.3 and then 4.5 on my new 8310, but my blackberry maps has disappeared (even though it is in the application list) and will not reinstall, online activeX installer giving me an error that BB maps is not compatible for my device (and no it is not hidden -_-). And making videos will crash my blackberry 50% of the time!

The moral is that it is too risky putting unsupported software on your blackberrys. And it gives technical support a hard time!
