Ok... so everything installed without any more errors! But.... XmBlackBerry doesn't recognize my 8830. Keeping in mind this is the 8830 from Verizon maybe it's a device issue?
I ran the two bcharge commands and that went fine, but when I run the btool it doesn't find my bb. (sudo btool -l yeilds no results. Damn.)
And it never does end up increasing the charge to 500. Stays at 100.
