Default 8330 os 4.5.0.66

Please Login to Remove!

Just curious what improvemesnt those of you running this os have seen.. for me the biggest improvement is battery life, the original os 4.3 the battery was a little shaky, now it lasts all day with heavy use still shows 70-80% left...

I noticed the battery life improvement as well. I really like the HTML email, though.

I heard .66 provided more memory or something, too. Did you notice that, Dawg?

I haven't noticed any bugs to speak of, no memory leaks either. Think we'll see an official release of this version soon? Looks like the first official cdma 4.5 release would be a downgrade from here!!

Did you resend your service books after the upgrade?

Do you have any double sided tape or twist ties? Once you have those, it's pretty easy.

OR, you can follow the instructions in this thread: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ilanguage.html

It wasn't meant to be funny. Follow the instructions and you can upgrade your device. The steps aren't much more cut and dried than that.

If you have a 507 that means you do not have an operating system on your device.

You'll have to run Application Loader to install the new OS. The device won't show connected at first, but if you connect it, open DM, and start Application Loader, you should get prompted to install the OS.
