    Question Help Upgradeing to 4.5

    Advertisement



    Hello, Im gunna upgrade to os 4.5 finally, but have one problem. There are so many versions out there to download. So I have some questions. I have the blackberry 8800 from t-mobile and have myfaves. I want to get the most stable os for my phone. I have been around the forms and found about three verions. the 4.5.0.81 , 4.5.0.81, and i think i read on one post that there is a 4.5.0.52 (not sure but i think that what i read). From the long list of places to download from which is the best providor to download from for my 8800?

    Thanks Stackers!

    The only Official 4.5s for the 8800 that I am aware of are here There are alot of beta versions out but if you want the most stable then I would go with an official release.

    Since you are t-mo you will have to delete the vendor.xml and go that route but that is not a big issue. You can follow the links to learn how in the OP of the thread I linked to or we can talk you through it here.


    Edit: Sorry misread and corrected links. All other info applies.

    Yes pick which ever you want to download it doesn't matter where from. I still would go with the .124 it is the newest and probably the most stable.

    Everything you have should still work with the upgrade the same as it did before.

    Ok, updated to 4.5 and everything seems ok, pretty happy with the upgrade. However when I go into my media car to look at my pictures the phone reboots. Any idea on to fix that?

    one... did the my favs still work?
    two... you have to reformat the SD card for the new OS... copy all data then format it on the phone and then reload the data in the proper spots

    if that doesnt work it might be the OS...
