How do I upgrade my 8330 to 4.5
Well I went to BB.com to upgrade... I went thru the steps.. says its avaiable... blah blah... downloads a program and the runs it....after its done it says I am operating for the latest version.... thinkin sweet here 4.5 .... I look in " about" still 4.3.... Any help? how can i upgrade? Thanks alot man!
It may be that there is no 4.5 release available from your carrier yet. But you can install the OS from any carrier as long as it's meant for your device and you delete the vendor .xml file. Read through the instructions carefully.
Find a 4.5 for your device here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ll_models.html
upgrade instructions here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...support-76342/
Also please fill out your profile with device/os/carrier info so we can better assist you.
Just filled out all the info. You are really being alot of help man. Any thing I SHOULD NOT DO when I am about to attempt this?
Just read the instructions carefully, do a backup first, and the only "do not" is DO NOT disturb your BB while it is in the upgrade process. It can take a while. It may say connecting to device for 20-30 minutes or longer and look like nothing's happening, but it is, just let it do it's thing, don't push buttons and don't disconnect it from the computer or bump/dislodge/disconnect the usb until the process is complete.
ok last question... My carrier doesnt have it so i used the link you gave me to find the DL. In the instructions link there is also a link to find the os dl " says its the best" but it only has the bb curve 8300 link not one for 8330.... the link u gave me i clicked us cellular and found it for the 8330.... does it matter witch i use?
Follow this link and get the one for Bell Mobility, it's actually a higher version than the Cellular South one
Thanks for the help! I would have figured it out w/o ya. So after I DL the program Install it? And then I find the file and delete it.... open Desktop Manager and it will show I have an update?
Nice... I wrote u a reply on the other on b4 i got this....

haha, found it and moved it
In regards to your question, yes once you download and run/install the new 4.5 handheld device software to your computer and delete the vendor .xml file, the DM should notice the upgrade
Ok now I am going thru all this.... what doors am i opening to have v4.5

Any real diff between cell south and bell mobility updates? I have cell south and the version/platform nubers seem the same.

Right now the download link for Cellular south has 188.8.131.52 so maybe they pulled .77

Any theme that I have has the same font on the message screen and the time. I did not delete the vendor file out because I have Cellular South and downloaded the cellular south one.... Should I go ahead and downgrade to 220.127.116.11 and delete the file? Or should I just leave everything alone?
