    Can't upgrade BB OS 4.5.0.69

    Advertisement



    Can't upgrade the BB OS to version 4.5.0.69. After the loading Boot Rom system returns a message A fatal error has occurred while updating the device software.

    Anyone encounter this problem and are there any work arounds?

    Make sure you go into the C drive of your computer> progam files>common files>Reasrech in motion>App Loader> and delete Vendor Xml or somthing.

    re-open the desktop manager and try again.

    4.5.0.69 is now available in BETA versions for the 8100, 8120, 8130, 8310, 8320 and 8330. Google "4.5.0.69" and you'll find it on various web sites.

    Is your device usable, jrleny, and are you sure you downloaded the correct OS for YOUR device, which based upon your profile is the 8320 (this is confusing as you started this thread in the 88xx topic!)? You might end up wiping your device completely with jl_cmndr, but for now, start by deleting the device OS off your PC, download and install it again on the PC and try another upgrade.

    Which version of Desktop Manager are you using? If you have 4.5 you might want to consider downgrading to 4.3. Uninstall the DM software through Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs, download the 4.3 version of DM, reboot your PC and then try the upgrade again.


    Don't forget to delete the vendor.xml file after you've downloaded and installed the 4.5 device OS onto your PC!

    Hope this helps!

    Roger

    ::EDIT:: The .69 OS release is not for all the devices above. Sorry for the confusion. Some of those devices use the .66 release, but there is a .69 available now for the 8320.

    Problem Solved.

    Problem was with the USB port. RIM is sending a replacement device and I was eventually able to get 4.5.0.69 installed.

    This by far is the best release yet. Memory stays very consistent around 18 to 20 Megs. My Blackberry Messenger Contacts are no longer deleted on a device reboot. Better app switching. Great Internet Performance via WiFi. UMA is nice nad stable (perhaps a bit weaker then .55)

    My USB port is no longer functioning so I hope the replacement gets here within the next day or so. Otherwise I have to use another device to charge the battery.

    I ran into update problems, mainly because I wanted to use Desktop Manager 4.2, the phone died in the middle of the install process, but after upgrading DM, the install worked perfectly, still UMA is beating me up, it hasn't worked properly since I purchased the curve.

    Things seem to be running faster and smoother....no interruptions when switching between EDGE and UMA

    Yup, you need DM 4.3+ to do the OS upgrade to 4.5.
    Device: 8100c / Apps: 4.5.0.69 / Platform: 2.7.0.72
