i upgraded my os to 22.214.171.124 yesterday and everything went perfect i was using the ... BlackBerry Curve forum
NEED HELP! (thanks)
i upgraded my os to 126.96.36.199 yesterday and everything went perfect i was using the video camera the voice and all even youtube worked. ok now i was just doing somethings on my bb, normal stuff like texting and putting some pics on my computer. i began to browse pinstack(on my laptop) and when i went back to my bb the trackball was making the clicking noise n all but its not moving! when i press shift or caps the proper icons still show up, but i can not go into standby or turn off the phone by holding end call. i just pulled the battery out and booted up and it was the same story, ive pulled it out once again. its an 8310 by the way. any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you
I upgraded to the 188.8.131.52 also, and didn't have any problems. I have since gone back to the 184.108.40.206 only because I missed my themes and aps that didn't work with 4.5. Anyway, if nothing is working then maybe you should try to go back to the regular OS and see if that helps.
thats what i was thinking. could you explain how i would go about downgrading? or a link would be helpful. thank you
thanks for the help mel just booted up after my second battery pull and it is working again. thanks again
i spoke too soon as soon as the backlight went out the ball stopped moving =(
Wow, you're having a difficult time.
What carrier do you have?
You can get the "regular" OS from their website.
You will have to go into your computer and delete the 4.5 version from it,
then download the 4.2 version.
Make sure you do a wipe of your phone before you install the 4.2 by going to
options>security options>general settings
click the menu key and select wipe handheld.
You can also go here to find your carriers latest software version.
i did the upgrade on my desktop pc, the laptop has no 0s 4.5 download, so would i just download 4.2 and open dm?
If I understand right you are saying you did the 4.5 upgrade on a desktop and now you want to do the downgrade on a laptop?
You can do that, of course.
Make sure to do the wipe of your handheld before you downgrade (do a backup first!!).
should i use the newest dm 4.5? or 4.3? also will it start itself like it did with 4.5 or will i have to initiate the downgrade manually? thanks
No, you don't need 4.5.
I actually downloaded the 4.5 and it didn't work at all for me.
The media player wouldn't work, and so forth.
You can use 4.3.
I'm not sure what you mean by initiating the downgrade yourself,
but once you install the latest OS from your carrier onto your computer,
and you plug in your phone to the DM and click "application loader" it should automatically detect the 4.2 software (or whatever your carrier has).
From there you select the programs you want it to install (or deselect the ones you don't want it to install).
so use desktop manager 4.3?
