Angry So (#*&$#ing frustrated! Curve + OS 4.5

Please Login to Remove!

I figured it would be a cool idea to upgrade my VZW 8330 Curve's OS from it's default 4.3.x to 4.5. Found the update on a website somewhere.

Anyway things were going great until the BB just froze. I thought, eh, that's an anomaly.

Anamoly my arse! I have since had this thing freeze up on me anywhere from 4-8x a day. I can't do anything but reseat the battery to get functioning again. It would freeze up doing anything. Surfing, reading email, PINing people, even just laying there on the coffee table doing nothing.

And this is with few apps installed. I know for a fact that the Gmail Application will not work with the Curve and OS 4.5. I get a java.lang.NullPointer error whenever I run it. I've had to since add my gmail address to my bb's email boxes in setup.

Anyone know where I can find the original OS for my VZW Curve? I'm so frustrated that I'm about to throw it out the window soon. argh!
