Welcome to the forums,
I actually recommend updating the OS rather than applying the patch. Here is a link to the latest OS for the Curve. It's released by another carrier (not AT&T) but all the 8300 OS's will work, regardless of which carrier released it.

The software in the link is newer than yours. It's 4.2.2.126 instead of your 4.2.2.89 and does not require the patch.

I then removed the battery for 30 minutes, reinstalled it and the same screen came up. I am at a loss as to my next move.

Any ideas?
Well, I got this error message, too when rebooting to load a theme I had also downloaded today. I'm going to try and load the newest OS and see how that works. Otherwise my phone is just staring at me. Sigh. Good thing I have another phone to use while I try to resuscitate my Curve. Poor thing. I never have been good about following directions.

OK, I still can't get my Curve working, have downloaded two different OSes (smartone and singapore) and loaded them through the app loader (I think) and it's still showing the App Error 205. Sigh.

I can't seem to get the newest version of Desktop Manager downloaded though I thought I downloaded it when I got my Curve in June.

Any ideas?

Alrighty then. Got the OS to load without the battery in the device. I'll try and load the latest OS later now that my phone is unbricked. I would like calendar alerts to work so I don't miss appointments.

grrr. figured if I waited long enough, the patch would work on my BB.

been trying all day, and always end up with either a hung (it seems) browser or the "no patch for you" screen.

Short of doing the OS upgrade, which I'm for, but have a mac (my next search maybe), are there any other options to grab the OTA for the patch?

so for those of us with 4.2.2.89, if the site says "there's no patch for you" is that pretty much the end of the story? Is there a way to "game" the site to let me get the OTA link? I've seen plenty in this thread that get the same "No update for you" screen, anyone find a solution?

The new google sync won't work until my calendar is patched. Anyone?

I have a BB8300 with the calendar problem (apptmt into my BB not showing in my outlook but apptmt done in outlook does show in BB).
I installed this patch and afterwards it just told me that "calendar patch not required for this version" (I have v4.2.2.146).
What can I do to fix this problem? Do I have to upgrade mi OS, or what else do you suggest?
Thanks in advance.
