Default 4.5.0.138 for ESN 8330 is out

Please Login to Remove!

I am now running 4.5.0.138 on my ESN 8330



Their is no file to download yet!

Seems you will need .131 installed on your BB and on your PC go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and then for the vendor.XML file should be deleted or edit it to read <vendorsrc version="0.0.0.0">

Next (with your BB pluged into your PC but DM not running) go to www.balckberry.com/update install the active X control and it will then launch your loader.exe app (it may update it to 4.7.0.55 first) and it should show you the 4.5.0.138 update.

I have confirmation form four people now and its not carrier specific.

Just seems to be a little faster overall. No new features that I could find.

I tried to check it out and this is my first upgrade since switching from BIS to BES... I didn't know the browser-based version (BlackBerry - Update your Device Software) won't work if I'm on BES. Looks like I need to wait for a carrier release

Doesn't seem to do anything. Wants me to downgrade. When I click on check for updates it automatically starts DM.

If anyone on Sprint successfully achieves this update, let me know. Until then, I think I'll wait.

I downloaded and installed it just fine. What bugs did you hear of?

I got to 75% download and then it fails. Anyone else having this issue? It's happened twice so far.

Yayyy! I just successfully updated my OS using Windows 7 build 7077 and Desktop Manager 5. Restoring application data now. I'm hyped, that was the only thing keeping me from using Win 7 full time.

After several attempts, I was finally able to successfully install .138 on my Sprint 8330.

I had to download the file 4 times and use the App Loader.exe method.
