I keep hearing about the new 4.5 and all the cool features it has..I really want to get it but I have atnt and they havnt released it yet nd I'm starting to think they never will so I'm thinking of installing it but I'm worried to because of all the bugs..and I've heard it takes it off the warrenty if u upgrade from some other carrier and I can't buy a new one..and I've heard bout SIM cards gettin fried...is anybody using a 4.5 for att 8310 that's worth the upgrade..
DO NOT UPGRADE DUDE! Wait til AT&T releases theirs. There are wayyyyyyy too many complaints with reference to the upgrade. This is the best advise i can give you.
I have upgraded to every version of 4.5 and never fried my sim or bricked my bb. I have been using .69 for about 2 weeks with no issues. I actually think its the best release of the 4.5 for 8310 so far. Seems to be a tick faster. I have a lot of 3rd party apps loaded and they all work fine. No issues with facebook or any of the other posted app isues. Give it a shot. As long as you alway back up, you can downgrade if you don't like it. And if you brick it, jl commander works as advertised. I'm on ATT as well. Good luck.
Same here and I haven't had any issues at this point either.

If you don't have experience upgrading and don't really like to trouble shoot issues then I wouldn't upgrade. More the the latter reasoning though. If you like a stable OS the I wouldn't upgrade just yet.
There aren't that many features worth upgrading for.
Your choice though...good luck.
I had 188.8.131.52 now I have 184.108.40.206. They both work fine for me (every feature). Its faster, docs to go, youtube videos, better memory use, html email, video recording. 55 is official should work fine. 69 is beta it works fine for me also. I would give one a try if it doesn't work for you, you can always reinstall original os. PS I have a 8310 unlocked using tmo service. Also the only difference I noticed between 55 and 69 are the multiple default folders (different colors, apps, games folders, etc) and included with 69.

It should work, in the event it doesn't go to your carriers web site d/l the os for your phone and reinstall it. Other than that follow the upgrade instructions posted in those links and enjoy 4.5 it's sweet!
