    If you are SURE you want to wipe your Pearl, go into Options-Security Options-General Settings, hit the menu button. You should see the option to wipe your handheld there. If that doesn't work for you, search for and download JL Commander. Use it with care, it can completely wipe your OS if that's what you want.

    You can simply delete the 4.5 os from your computer, download the original OS that was on your phone to you pc. Then when you hook your bb to your desktop manager it will ask if you want to downgrade.


    There should be no need to wipe the phone. A wipe using the option on the bb in security will only wipe your personal data and your 3rd party apps(if you select that option), not your OS. A wipe with JL_Cmder will literally wipe the device of everything including the OS but is not at all necessary at this point.

    The downgrade should work just fine. Post back if you need more help

    Just a note, colorpearl won't work with 4.5, many other apps will not either. It will take time for developers to get everything working with the new OS and some may never get upgraded.

    The problem is that colorpearl isn't compatable with 4.5.

    Nothing wrong with the bb

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you should be able to reinstall the I'm stuff straight from application loader. When you goto application loader go through the steps and at the screen where it shows you what is loaded on the phone scroll down. You should see yahoo MSN and all those hit the check boxes and you should install them.

    I'm pretty impressed with people's patience on PinStack. So different than how some people can be on some of the auto and motorcycle boards.
    There are so many threads where the answers are provided before the questions lol. It's pretty admirable and I'm glad to have found this site
