Default BB OS 5 a nightmare on my Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Ever since the upgrade, it runs like molasses. I've been forced to uninstall a favorite app because the phone keeps saying it's out of memory. The same app had plenty of memory under the older OS. And having removed it, the phone still claims it's out of memory. After removing it, the phone said it had about 8 megs of application memory, but it's now back to zero. It's as if the new OS eats memory. And I'm missing calls because the phone is locked up with that ticking clock icon and I can't answer it.

I hate this upgrade. Is there any way to go back to the older version, which at least worked? Thanks.

Very interesting report..why is that certain phones (9000's) will react that way and yet others seem to have no issues.?

I've been running OS 5 (5.0.0.822) for 2 months..still have a good chunk of memory left..albeit, I dont have a lot of apps installed or running.

I upgraded to 5.0.822 (which is the glitchy OS) at the first of Sept. and in two days downgraded to 4.6. I'm much happier. I suggest doing the same. I lost apps as well, even though I did a full b/u.

I have the same problem and went to AT&T store to ask them about. The tech had a Torch and said he had the same problem and I should just live with it. Turn phone off and do a battery pull. I don't want to just live with it, I want a fix.
I think the fix is to do what most folks are doing-abandon BB and go with Android or iPhone. BB has lost it way.

681 is the most stable OS for the 9000

1) Download BBSAK 1.8



2) Run BBSAK then click on WIPE DEVICE, when asked to enter a password, leave it blank incase you don't have a password on your device.



3) Wait for a few seconds till you get the confirmation that it was done.



4) Now your device has no operating system and you should see a white screen on the BB



5) Download the following OS:

BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1137 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 5.0.0.1137
Consisting of:
Applications: 5.0.0.681
Software Platform: 5.2.0.64
File name: 9000M_PBr5.0.0_rel1137_PL5.2.0.64_A5.0.0.681_du.ex e
File size: 124.75MB

DOWNLOAD 5.0.0.681



6) Install the *.exe file you just downloaded.



7) Navigate to Computer >>> C: >>> Program Files >>> Common Files >>> Research in Motion >>> Apploader



8) Delete the file named vendor.xml



9) Connect your BlackBerry through the USB port



10) Run loader.exe



11) Follow the on-screen instructions and enjoy. (Incase you were given 2 choices whether to leave the applications intact or to downgrade them to the original versions, choose the 2nd option which is to downgrade them, this will ensure you have a completely fresh installation)
