    8830 OS 4.5.0.51 beta on my Sprint WE..

    Advertisement



    As you all know, no links to be posted here. But they are sure floating around if you search. I have just installed the beta OS 4.5.0.51 for CDMA 8830 on my Sprint 8830. This beta seems to be working well. I have tested all the applications and functions on my 8830 and have not found any significant glitches. Texting, HTML email, browser, contacts, bluetooth headsets, navigation, etc.. All seem to be working fine. The only glitch at all I've noticed is the last syllable of my Mapquest Navigator voice directions seem to be clipped, but no big deal. If you try it, make sure you are using Desktop 4.5 and everything is backed up. Also, it will go to "sleep" for about 30 minutes while managing the reload of data and applications, etc, so don't panic and just leave it alone. If you do a search, you'll find plenty of threads on the net explaining the install procedure, how to delete vendor file, etc. After using this beta, I can't help but think that the final release must be near. Waiting is probably not a bad idea. Also, to get the HTML mail, you must resend the service books from your email account page.

    Hope it goes well for you. I forgot to mention that I also loaded the Docs to Go module that now comes with OS 4.5. Not sure why, but it is probably a good idea to load it based on comments in other forums. Also, it appears that 4.5 just takes up more memory on my 8830. I went from about 15-16 MB of free memory to about 11-12 free after the upgrade (some of that is the Docs to Go of course). Good luck.

    I just upgraded to this version and its working great. I see that the Shift function is working now and they integrated the voice recording module. The media (music in specific) got upgraded options.

    Over all i see my device working faster and a little bit over 11MB Free in space. No problems with BIS or BES at all. It was a smooth upgrade process.

    I just googled the OS + CDMA and tried several links before finding one that worked. I don't even recall what the link's url was. Just keep trying Google search results until you find it. Good luck.
