    Thumbs up 8330 Sprint software v4.3.0.127

    Advertisement



    I just saw this as available for download from Blackberry.com

    2 things:

    1) Implies that their Curve is almost out...
    2) I plan to try to see if this will work on my Sprint 8830...

    Anyone else going to try this?
    Sincerely,

    Downloaded, then got it to install on my PC (checked under Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs and it is listed), but when I connect my 8830 and run Device Manager the sync up does not detect its presence. Any ideas?

    It's for the 8330, not 8830

    Like Erica said, different device model so the OS will not run on it and DM will not recognize it for that device.

    Kind of what I figured...

    But it was worth a try! I didn't know if there was a way to get to the applications side of the download and install that (an expert-level hack beyond me at this point) or not...

    I guess I'll have to keep waiting for the next rev. for my 8830 whether that is called 4.3 or 4.5.

    This thread and the OS they are discussing is for the 8330, NOT the 8310 so this will not work.

    Intended for the 8830

    I started this thread and noted that I was going to try to shoehorn a new 8330 OS into my 8830. Didn't work. I saw today that Sprint released a new 8830 OS so I posted the info...

    Then we should change the title, because that is what I was going by which seems to imply that it is an 8330 OS thread. Which is why I made the comment.
