Default Downgrading from 4.0

Please Login to Remove!

IS it possible to move back to an earlier version of the OS if I had to?

yes, I can...


remove the new version, add the old... remove vendor.xml... when you restart desktop manager it should ask you if you want to keep the newer software or downgrade to the one desktop manager knows about.

That pretty much does the same thing. It's gonna wipe it when you reload anyways. Only with desktop manager doing it, you have the option of backing up and restoring your mail/messages/address book/etc...

Hate to say it but I downgraded as well from the 4.0 OS, 4.0 was just to beta for me. Like bfrye said if you remove the new version, add the vendor.xml file the app loader will do the rest.

I've had to downgrade as well simply because our current 3rd party email solution doesn't work with 4.0 at all... :(

Luckily I've got more than one device through work though, so I can still play with it ;)

Is 4.0 buggy? Also, is it quicker than the older version?

It's quicker yes, but it is also buggy too. It crashes a lot for me, maybe 4-6 times a day. Plus it takes FOREVER for it to boot. Sometimes 5-10 mins.

Wow! That sounds horrible. Although it's currently only in the Beta stages correct?

>>"Plus it takes FOREVER for it to boot. Sometimes 5-10 mins."

Should only be on the first reboot. It reboots in approximately 30-60 seconds, not too different from 3.7. Reboots are longer if you've reinstalled the operating system.

(Using 4.0.0.124 which is stable enough for my needs.)

I use .100 right now, and each time it boots, minimum time is 3min, usually around 5-7. I've had them take up to 20mins to reboot sometimes before though. Constantly with the hourglass, not like it was rebooting and rebooting and rebooting over and over again.

On a good note though, since we've just been accepted into the beta program for BES 4.0 GroupWise, we'll be getting updated clients as we go along (or as they put them out). So hopefully I'll be able to better convey some of the bugs and quirks I see people having around to RIM.

MY reboots are about 60-90seconds... Maybe 120 secs if I install a program via Apploader.
