Default Upgrade to 4.5 OS on VZW 8830 WE

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have several user's on a BES using 8830's. Is there a way to deploy this new OS via BES or does it need to be done with desktop manager?

Thanks,

-Derk

No.

However, if you search around, you can find a stable beta version which you can use. Just delete the vendor.xml file before installing through DM

Anyone know why the 8830 takes so long to get OS updates?

The Beta is stable. You will function with it whether a new update becomes officially released or not.
