    Help w/ 4.5 OS

    Advertisement



    Ok, so I've seen quite a bit about this whole new 4.5 OS, for the BB, I have a 8100, is it possible for me to upgrade to the new OS? If so, how? I've looked all over the place for the new OS but I can't seem to find the download link. If someone could provide the link that would be cool. Thanks!

    Please see this thread for download links as well as upgrade support. Yes 8100 can be easily upgraded to OS4.5

    Just remember to remove ColorPearl (If you have it on your 8100,) before upgrading. It (and apparently a few other 3rd party programs,) cause a few headaches with constant rebooting after un-tethering the upgraded phone from the USB cord.

    No, I have not resolved the issue, I tried it a couple more times and I still had the same problem of it constantly rebooting. I went back to the 4.2 OS, which works fine now, but I just want the 4.5 to work cause I really love being able to play youtube and all that other good stuff on it.

    If someone has a solution please help!

    Thanks

    Help

    Is the new OS suppose to fix being able to watch streaming media? Also does anyone know where or how I can download the new flash player for my 8100, it keeps telling me I need it to watch videos. Any help would be good.

    I don't think that the 8100 has support for the Flash Player.

    Sorry for double posting but I just wanted to give an update...

    kiernanwest, I just installed the new OS and it seems to be working fine at first it was sort of slow but after I played with it for a while, it got faster and the browser is faster too. Also I finally got Moodio to work to with this system. Thanks for all the info!
