8830 OS Upgrade
I have a 8830 World Edition (VerizonWirelss), but not being able to upgrade my OS to 4.5. I followed the instructions and when I get to the Application Loader, the right hand windows states, "UPdate your Device Software by clicking start. After clicking, and putting password, the right hand windows states, "No Software Update Required for your Device.
What am I doing wroing. Just want to let you know that I downloaded the 4.5 OS exe file, and then installed it on my PC by per instructions and then went through the whole instructions such as deleing vendor.xml file etc.
Any help will be appreciated.
Did you delete any 4.3 OS from the PC also? If you have another OS on the PC the newer will not install.
Are you sure the OS was for the 8830??? As far as I know, the 8830 does not have a 4.5 OS publically available
Were you able to figure it out?
What problems were you having with it? I just had to replace my track ball and now my o key has started to go. It is annoying. I ended up telling my friends if the word is missing an o tough sh*t. LOL
This was a big headach. I have an 8830 with sprint, everything was find. I decided to download and install 4.5. Them I was not able to receive email, and send sms. Sprint had no clue. After 5 days of about throwing the phone and Sprint out the window, I was able to get a call from blackberry and was told that 4.5 does not work for the 8830. So went back to 4.2.
