    I downloaded the beta 4.5.0.77 this morning and now all my ringers play loud now. I hope for the final version it works for good. It almost scared me this morning when I got a text message. This is very good news for me. Not sure if anyone noticed or posted on this already. Now I'm off to play some more with my upgraded berry!

    Where did you find OS 4.5 for the 8830?? The low volume on my 8830 is driving me nuts, but I can't find a 4.5 OS for my 8830 ANYWHERE. Maybe issue is specific to provider? I have alltel.

    I've had .77 for about two weeks. Ringers are sometimes too loud. Beautiful.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~You're right DP sometimes they're too loud but I couldn't care less, I just turn the volume slightly lower lol. Sorry kingfish due to pinstack policy I cannot specify any kind of beta OS, however I just googled it and found it. Hope this helps.

    Thanks James80-

    Tried to reply via pm but was told I can't because I don't have 10 posts yet...oh well - I'll just do it here.

    I found 4.5.0.77 and downloaded it, then opened it and installed it via desktop mgr. 4.6, which I had already installed. OS install went smooth as silk and my two issues, ring volume and larger media card support were immediately resolved.

    Bummer is that this morning I cannot access edit sub-menus for my profiles. That is the menus for notification types, volumes, repetitions, etc. within profile menus simply won't function. And the notification edits I made in NORMAL profile last night did not take.

    All in all I really like the functionality and appearance of the new OS, but I hope I can get to the bottom of the profile glitch.

    Thanks again

    Yeah, I have noticed I have had to turn it down a bit. When my alarm went off the first time after the install, (Playing "Take me on" by Aha) I about clung to the ceiling fan. Whoa! It's nice to have to much volume then not enough.

    OK problem with profiles fixed, and my 8830 is now a real whizbang smart phone in every direction I can see.

    Turned out the problem was that 4.5.0.77 doesn't download (just doesn't HAVE) sound files - ring tones, alerts, alarms etc. You have to scavenge a .cod file from the java folder in an older OS, change its name and add it to the java folder of the new OS on your computer, then open up DTM and it will see the new file as an update and download it to your handheld.

    .cod file you need

    Looks like it worked. Just save that file into the loder files and then run the app loader with desktop manager and it will work like a charm! guaranteed! it fixed mine!

    not sure

    hi guys, i just downloaded the 4.5.0.77 os for alltel 8830 and i'm still unsure about how to save the .cod file in the loader files and run the app loader. also, is this when you noticed the louder volume on your ringtones, or was it right away after downloading the os? i can't really tell any difference in the volume. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance, anthony
