Default Upgrade Question

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I have a few questions.

If I am on BES and I do a upgrade from OS4.2 to a 4.5, once I've completed the upgrade, do I need to do Enterprise Activation all over again..?

Second, if i just do a normal device wipe, do I need to do the Enterprise Activation all over again..?




Cheers

Ray

Yes, you will need to activate again, for both circumstances.

Finally, we have a policy regarding OS links.... please read.

Yes to upgrade and yes to wipe. Both require you to redo the Enterprise Activation

Also, you don't need rapidshare to get the OS for the 8300, it can be found here:

Thanks, man.

I forgot to update my profile. I have a 8310 Curve, not a 8300.

Look at the top of this 83xx section, you will find a link in the yellow highlighted Sticky Notes at the top, to the 8310 OS.

What language issues do you refer to?

I've never had language issues with any OS, but then I only load one on my BB, and delete or don't load any others.

Ohhh...I mean the OS itself...

I noticed that this download is from a German site, that's why I asked.

Just worried that there won't be any language issues once installed on my device.

Cheers

I tried to install the OS 4.5, but when I clicked the icon on my pc i get this error message :

"Error reading setup initialization file"

Why does this happen..??
