    ^ There you go.

    just be patient and remove colorpearl (if installed) before hand.

    ^^another trick is to remove the media card, if you have one too, I had problems the first time I installed it. Good luck =)

    First try rebooting your PC to see if that doesn't reset the USB ports. Take a look at the USB port on your device with a magnifying glass. Could be the pins are bent, or your USB cable is shot.

    to be honest i would wait until your carrier releases thier version of the software. I say this after trying the StarHub version 4.5.0.37on my Unlock AT&T 8300. It installed fine and most things worked well for the most part with the exception of numerous uncaught exception 9 errors, bad gateway 504 errors etc etc and the ability to only recieve MMS. I spent some time on the phone with AT&T and what was told to me was that the service books are wrote for THIER current device software version. They do this so to make sure the features on the phone operate correctly within a set of paramaters that is designed into the device software itself. The only fix to make MMS and internet work properly everytime was to downgrade back to the AT&T version.

    wow jhowle! that's frustrating

    i am currently rocking the TIM 4.5.0.52 and haven't had any of those issues. Is the StarHub a beta release? I can even send/receive video MMS now!

    RoGro, thanks for the reply. It looks like the 4.5 beta is not available for the 8330 as of yet. I think I will wait.
