    8320 Curve...needes an upgrade--but I'm CRAP !!!

    Advertisement



    Hi all

    I'm embarrassed to admit but I've had my 8320 for a good few months but I'm still on v 4.2.2.184 (platform 2.5.0.40) !

    Now, I don't know what any of that means except I can't watch video and I know there are solutions by upgrade.
    The thing is I'm a useless technophobe who needs more guidance than the upgrade thread provides.
    eg--can i jump onto the newest upgrade from where I'm at or do i have to upgrade to each version in sequence?

    Any friendly person fancy leading me through this more gently as although I love my BB iknow im not using it anywhere near its potential. Any links and easy step by step guides for the really pathetic would be greatly appreciated.

    Please help, and thanks in advance !

    You can jump up to 4.5 with ease. If you need help through it others here as well as myself will walk you through it. Lets start with who is your carrier?

    Here is a good place to start. You can download any Operating system from any carrier if that's what you chose there is an added step in the upgrade process doing this but it is very easy.

    The easiest way to upgrade, especially if you are nervous or just not tech savvy is to go here and use the web updater from blackberry.com. As long as there is an upgrade for your device it will find it and install it with little effort.

    Follow the link that Cowboy has, look for your carrier, click on the link, follow the instructions, be very patient, and it gets done. I did mine last night from that same link. I'm not a techie by any stretch of the imagination but it worked flawlessly for my 8310.

    Go ahead and do it without worry. Cats like red and cowboy won't leave you hanging, plus there's any number of other should they be (gasp) not available. Even IF something does wrong, there's someone around to help you through it.
    Not to scare you, but my first upgrade went south. One search of the stacks (and a quick download) had my 8310 up and running quickly.
    Beautiful thing about the stacks, no one is going to belittle you if you do make a mistake.

    Oh hell, wasn't making fun. Wouldn't even cross my (limited) mind.
    I do like being primal. First thing in my calendar every day.

    You've a good point. I enjoy being able to help, although one has to be quick with the caliber
    of folks here on the stacks.

    Right, neither you or Cat would ever poke fun at another stacker's inability to type correctly-lol. I do enjoy a primal encounter every once in a while, just not the kind I had earlier on BBM.

    Let's not get to off track. It is gonna be scary enough for kie9 being their first time upgrading. I know I was scared to death.
