    Wait for Sprint to release it. I decided to download Orange's version of 4.5 on my T-Mobile phone because a trusted source did it and it worked for him...

    But when I did it, I opened up a world of problems. It didn't successfully install which isn't a big deal, and I can't assert my problems are related to it... but I'd say just to be on the safe side wait. it should be out before the end of the year

    Well there are official releases of 4.5 for ALL GSM phones. CDMA has not had any released as of yet.

    I would wait too, the only thing that we get with 4.5 are docs to go and youtube. From what I can see that is all that most people care about. I am waiting but, I have some that I will not even try to install as I do not want to mess my BB up.

    Yeah I would agree! Cdma users must be patient. We finally got the curve like almost a year later after it was released for gsm.

    Just be patient and it will come. Official releases are always the best unless you are an advanced user!!

    I downloaded the .51 for my Alltel 8830. As there is no official CDMA release, you will need to search for the beta OS release on Google. It's very easy to find what you want-just type in exactly what you are looking for and voila, you will have access.

    Download both the 4.5 Desktop Manager and the 4.5.0.51 Handheld software. Delete the vendor.xml file from the handheld software. You will now be ready to connect your BB and load the new OS. Make sure to do a backup and then you can reload all of your databases(ie. bookmarks,contacts,etc.) and previous 3rd party apps.

    I have had zero problems with the new OS and the .51 version should be very near to the full release. Go for it. You have nothing to lose as long as you backup. The updated browser alone makes it worth the time and trouble investment.

    I agree. I have found .51 to be flawless.

    Be advised not all apps work with .51 and the 8330 (e.g. Google Maps). Unless you really really really need HTML mail and Docs2Go - I would wait for the official Verizon/Sprint... release. The current 4.3 version on those carriers does the majority of the 4.5 features now.

    i'm on a 8330 with 4.5 and google maps works fine.
    HOWEVER, there have been times where it wasnt as close as before, but for most of the time, it's been just as good as when i had 4.3

    Ditto, no issues here with 4.5.0.51.
    As Always...

    Happy Berrying!!
