Well, being that I have an AT&T-branded Curve 8310, I went to wireless.att.com/blackberry , and clicked on "New Device Software or Desktop software" in the lower right corner, which redirects you to the AT&T part of blackberry.com. I don't see 4.5 on there, but rather only 4.3, for the Desktop Manager software.
And check this out: When I select 8310 from the list, it still says 4.2.2 is the latest OS!! Here's a link, so you can see what I mean:
Soo...What am I to do? lol... .52 works great, so what do you guys think I should do? Download 4.5 from the link a few posts back? Hmm...And which .xx is it anyway? .52? .5x? .4x??
@BERRYCURVE: I agree. .52 has been the best for me out of the two others I had installed previously. By the way, you said you fixed the HTML problem. Well, I get HTML in both email and the browser of course, but ONE tiny and annoying thing is that I STILL have to click on "Get Images", every time there is CERTAIN HTML images (mostly logos; everything else is HTML without my having to take any action) that my Curve apparently thinks are suspicious.
I would like that automated, of course. I'm sure I'm only missing a tiny tweak somewhere, but I cannot seem to locate it. Can you, or anyone else, help me with that?

Unlike the device OS, the DM is not device specific. I downloaded DM 4.5 straight from the BlackBerry web site. Looks and runs great. Used it to install the last two 4.5 OS on my Curve (.46 and .52).

Yes, the 4.5 OS will support an 8gb card.

I've been using .52 for several days now and really love it. I don't know what could be done to make it any better, for the uses I put it through every day. I've had no lockups, no reboots and not other noticeable problems.
Anyone else found any bugs, or are the 8300s good to go?

I've found the .52 release to be very stable. I only have one problem. After streaming something with the media player you have to be very careful on how you exit it. Almost every way I try to exit, crashes the phone and it reboots.

I am using .37 and i have a had a few bugs. Google Maps, and softrest do not not work at all. Then there are problems with My Alarm, but i think that it might be a firewall issue, so that it can access media on the SD Card. But i have .52 at home and i am going to upgrade to that today. Is that going to fix the softreset and the google maps issue?

I had .37 briefly but don't remember if the soft reset was an issue or not, but it works fine with .52. Can't comment on google maps, however.

I am talking about the 3rd party app. I have never done a 'left-alt, shift, delete reset that is kinda cool. Does it do the same thing as the 3rd party app?

I have also noticed that it is a little slower when i open and send messages. Also in the message screen you can't see the full time stamp on the message. Its says "12:5..." I really liked being able to see the full time. Our these known issues with .37 and can they be fixed by upgrading to .52?

Although I'm not sure what the difference is between a battery pull and a soft reset, I believe the 3rd party app is supposed to mimic the battery pull.

Here's a description I found on the difference between a soft reset and battery pull:
"The soft reset will kill the apps you have running but a battery pull will reset the memory to its original state. So all those little bits of information that get scattered about when it loads an app are cleared out and that memory can again be utilized."

Sweet, i am updating it right now as i am writing this. So i am just hoping that it will be done before my lunch is over so that i can go back to work and play with it.
