ATT 4.5 OS update !!MUCH THANKS!!
Hi all, I just updated my 8100 OS to ATT 4.5 using DM 4.6. The install went well, got all apps working and I like the new OS esp. Docs to go
!!!!! THANKS TO THIS GR8 FORUM!!!!
Couple of problems though;
1. color pearl does not work anymore, will try reinstalling it
2. The phone is sluggish the first time, after you have used the apps once, second time is much faster. any specific reason for this? happens every time I remove battery not otherwise
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Thanks again to all of you!

Umm. does it normally taker a longer time to start with a new OS in the phone?

software update BB 8100
In my case the update to 4.5.0 for an 8100 worked but not with DM 4.7
I don't know why but I had to uninstal this version and put 4.6
Many thanks to the one who created this thread ! Very , Very useful.

Hmm I seem to be having an issue for some reason. I've done this many times in the past. I already have 4.5 on my 8330 and I just want to get a newer beta version. Problem is when I connect and go through the steps and select the newer OS I get a screen that tells me that there is no software update required for my device. So what am I doing wrong?!

If it's a Beta, did you delete the vendor.xml file?
02-01-2009, 09:41 PM
Yeah I did that. Still nothing. Its not like it doesn't know it's there, it just says that I don't need to upgrade and then does nothing.

Nick, if you have more than one 4.5 OS on your PC, you'll need to uninstall the older ones.

Alright, I'm going to give that a try right now!

I did all the usual steps but the desktop manager just wouldn't recognize that there was an update. On a last ditch effort, I
instead of the desktop manager finding the update, clicked on the Application Loader in the DM and lo and behold it realized there was an update.
I don't think I had to do that before but at least I'll know for next time. Maybe try that?
So far no bugs at all... and no improvements either. It's all the same.

Where is the gprs folder located?

I'm running OS 188.8.131.529 (305) on my 8820.
I use DM 184.108.40.206 on my PC.
I downloaded OS 4.5.0 and DM 4.6 from BlackBerry, via the "Software Download for AT&T" page.
Do I need to upgrade DM first or the OS first?
i.e. Do I upgrade DM to 4.6 then the OS to 4.5 or vice versa?

Doesn't really matter. You should be able to install the device operating system using the LOADER application found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader without upgrading your Desktop Manager.
