    Grr OS headaches

    Advertisement



    i cant find anywhere that clearly states what the hell is up with these OS versions. I have a CDMA verizon wireless 8330 on a BES server, i have admin access to BES. first, what is the latest official OS release, second what is the latest beta release, and third, is it safe for me, a CDMA vzw BES 8330 user to upgrade to the latest beta or w/e? and as a followup, if the latest isnt safe to update to, what is the latest OS version i can trust? thanks in advance

    The latest official OS release for the 8330 is 4.3.0.127.

    The latest beta I think for 8330 is 4.5.0.55/51 (one of those two)

    Unfortunately I can't judge if it is safe for you to upgrade to a beta version, think about whether the possibility of running beta software (which has the potential to have a security leak somewhere, or any form of instability towards applications your BES may rely on for business) can provide a threat to the daily operations of your system.

    I put 4.5.0.45 on mine not too long ago, quickly downgraded since I saw no vast improvement to the system, with the exception of the Google Search bar in the browser and little things like that. But no way in hell would I have put beta software through a BES that I was administering.

    Actually, the latest version for the CDMA 8330 is 4.5.0.66. I haven't tried it yet. I am currently running 4.5.0.51 with no issues. Hopefully the official release will be coming our way soon.

    4.5.0.66 is a beta release. rmerck was correct in his statement regarding the "official" release.

    ::edit:: Just saw where you got that idea when he said that .55 is the latest beta. Sorry to have interjected!
