    4.5 Installation-persistent hourglass

    Advertisement



    I'm trying to install 4.5 on my 8820. Everything went smoothly until the end, when it got to 'wait for device initialization' (right before 'restore device data'). It has been reinitializing for maybe 15 minutes. Is this normal? Does it just take a while for it to get everything together? Or is it stuck??

    Patience is something alot of bb users are lacking when it comes to upgrades, downloads, and such

    Yep!! But it paid off. All is running smoothly and I'm happy with my new OS. I'm hoping the fact that I finally got it going means that the Bold will be coming out very soon (making my efforts a moot point!).
