    8330 OS 4.5 Question

    Advertisement



    I have an 8330 on Verizon and about 4 weeks ago I downloaded Ver 4.5.0.77 from Bell South. Now Verizon has released the same OS, should I re-install through Verizon. I deleted the vendor.xml file on the Bell South Version, do I need this file, what does it do? Thanks

    If you want the official os on your device you can do this. if not why worry. You can go Here and see if the web updater will do it. Or you can just download the Verizon version and install. Make sure you uninstall the Bell South version first and all should go smoothly.

    How do you uninstall the OS? Does this not happen when you install a new version?

    I think US cellular is using 4.5.0.66 right now. I deleted you other posts asking about this so we can keep your answers all in one spot

    Delete the old one from your computer, download another one and do the same install process you did to get your current 4.5 OS on your bb.

    Here's a list of newer OS:

    Yes as long as you delete the vendor.xml you'll be good to go.

    It won't be much different if at all. Are you having trouble? If not there's no need to upgrade.
