    Well, the updates for the OS are always free. But as of right now, there are no official released versions of 4.5 available for the 8330. There were a couple released by carriers, but then pulled, I'm guessing because there were still too many issues. But keep checking PinStack, we post links as soon as a new official release is found.

    There are two releases out there, from MTS (pulled) and from another carrier. 4.5.0.66 is available as a release directly from another carrier and 4.5.0.77 (running now on my 8330) can be found with a little diligence as an internal release directly from RIM.

    As to where to get them ...

    From what carrier, are you talking about the .66 release for US Cellular? That one was pulled too......

    US Cellular's 4.5 software was pulled as well.

    I'm currently using .77 but I've noticed a bug where anytime you take a picture and it uses the flash automatically in a dark area the picture doesn't actually come out.. just a plain white screen.. and then when you try to go into your photo album to open the picture it won't open and even doesn't display a thumbnail.


    I don't know if this is true with .59 MTS Mobility.. but I know two bugs with MTS is that the GPS was working pretty slow and not responding quickly enough when turs were coming and anytime you played BrickBreaker with the volume turned on the phone would restart.

    I'm about to go back to the Sprint official release untill these bugs are worked out.

    Really, I'm using .77 on my 8330 and I just tested the picture with flash in the dark and it worked just fine.

    Also GPS works great both with BB Maps and Telenav and Brickbreaker works with sound. I have found this to be very stable and every application I use has worked with it so far . But I've only had it for 3 days, I may still run into something buggy.

    I'm just going back to 4.3 from Sprint for now.. finding certain bugs when you're in the middle of trying to do something is kind of a bit annoying and on top of that Facebook doesn't work with 4.5. You don't get any notifications.

    You may want to do a backup, wipe the BB and reload the OS. Then do a selective restore of the apps and databases. It sounds like you have a corrupt installation of the 4.5 if in fact you are actually running the .77 version.

    I have been running the .77 since it was first out and have had none of the issues you state. As a matter of fact I have found it very stable, uses less memory, less battery and all the apps I have tried so far have worked.

    I have seen camera issues and memory problems with .66 which is why I ask you to verify which version your running.

    I am running the .51 for Sprint and it runs like a champ. I haven't discovered a single bug. Not sure why they just don't go official.
