There is no official release of 4.5 for the 8830, just betas. I would wait until it is officially released, but that is just me.

What state is the device in? Does it load at all? is it stuck on a jvm 507 error?

Start with removing everything from the device : How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ

Once it is wiped, try loading the most current officially released OS for your device: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ge-sprint.html

Follow the directions in the links and you should be good to go. Best of luck to you

Are you plugging the BB directly into the BACK of the pc? USB hubs wont work, and usually the front USB ports don't have enough power.

When you're using Vista, make sure all of your AVS is off as well.

Are you using a new version of the desktop manager? When I downgraded my 8830 it a first did not see the older version. But then I clicked on applications loader icon, then start under update appications. It then showed the older OS version and would downgrade. One more thing, you could first go into control panel, add remove programs and delete any other versions of the device OS you see there, other than the one you want to use. Make sure vendor.vml is deleted, then re-start the desktop software and try it again.

If the vendor.xml file is deleted (check this because it installs with every installation of an OS or DM) then DM will load the latest version of the OS installed on the PC for a given model. If you want to downgrade, simply uninstall any newer versions using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and then run application loader.

Error 507 indicates no OS on the device.

What version of OS do you have installed on your computer? What version of DM are you using?

This is the msg that i got after i used the manual way to reload OS ( the blackberry desktop software doesn't have blackberry device software for the device that you have connected to the computer. Contact your wireless service provider or system admin. )

now, i know it's not a good idea to call alltel because i know more than most of their DTS group. and i'm the Admin of this system. any more ideas my people? thanks.
