I followed the directions to the letter and my friends 8830 VZ would not take the upload. Any ideas?

Any one have any problems losing the audio on the video player after you bump it forward with the scrubber bar, seems that each time I do this the audio is eliminated - but the video remains playing and at the point at which I moved it forward or backwards to.
My thoughts are that maybe it's the way I formated them - I used imtoos software for the conversion.
Other than that it's running swell!

To answer my own question, yes I just upgraded fine on Telus. No problems thus far, like the new web browser, BES is working but i need to upgrade from 4.1.5 to get the full email support tomorrow!

Default Upgrade went well...

...on my Verizon 8830. Only issue I have is that after I reboot my BB and then go to BB Messenger, it asks me to send out a message to all my contacts to refresh their PIN, and they all go to PENDING. I can still message them, but why is this happening? Anyone else experience this?

So I noticed, a couple things after I loaded 4.5.0.127

1. Before I applied a 3rd party theme (Curve 8900) I had over 26mb of free space and that is with 13 3rd partys apps loaded and Documents To Go.
2. Once I applied a 3rd party theme (Curve 8900) I had 12mb of free space and then with in 4 hours it dropped to 5mb.

So I changed themes (BB Dimension L)and deleted the 3rd party theme off my 8830 and after 1 battery pull and 20 hours "up time" I've held at 26mb of free space!

Good Lord! 26mb? Wow! I'm jealous!

I installed 4.5.0.127 on my vzn 8830 and have most of my apps loaded on a microSD card using Aerize; after a reboot, I get maybe 15 mb free. (I just looked and have 18 3rd party apps, but several are launchers like CB, CNN, etc.)

(pick3222)..To clearify 3 of my 13 are "launchers" also. What I can't understand is why sometimes the File Free grows bigger? I bounce between 26mb and 31mb. So with so many 3rd party apps what are your "top 10" can't live without?
mine are:
Google Mobile Apps
Bible (You Version)
MaraTick
BBMobileMeeting
TwitterBerry
Mapquest4Mobile
Bejeweled

The original post states that I should click on the loader.exe.... does that imply I don't need DM??

I tired to load this OS on my friends VZ 8830 and in the loader it only shows the app's that he loaded onto his phone. I deleted the vendor.exe file as well and still no dice. Any reason why it's not working?

I used DM 4.7 to do the upgrade to 4.5.0.127 a few days ago. No issues there.
When I go to About, I see v4.5.0.127 (Platform 3.4.0.20). Great!

Today, when I plug the device into the computer and launch DM, I see:

"Blackberry 4.5.0 System Software"
"Update Now" or "Cancel"

see attached picture.



?!?! I'm confused?

I didn't have to reactivate. Do a battery pull and send some test emails.

I never had to reactivate mine, and I'm on my corp BES.
If you upgrade the device at your work on a PC that is connected to a BES, you do NOT need to reactivate the device.

Did my upgrade from 4.2 to 4.5, went very smoothly. BES re-activation was also easy. Love the browser, standard email is only a little better, so I'll still stick with BBSmart (company hasn't upgraded servers for HTML support). Love the GPS with BBmaps.

Finally have equalizer options for audio playback, but I expected a more robust player for a major OS upgrade. Such as the ability to set the equalizer settings manually. Also, while I browse through my MP3's, it shows the same album cover for all songs until I actually play a specific song. Then I can see the true album cover.

It's already been said in this thread, but this load has bad memory leaks. On 4.2 I averaged 6-7MB of free memory, no matter what. Now here is the strange part. When I first loaded 4.5, I showed 12MB free, so I thought "Cool!". But, after getting things back to normal, I started to show my usual 6-7MB of free memory. After a short time of device usage, the memory will drop to 3-4MB of and after long term use, will go down to 1MB and become sluggish. Not a big deal since a reboot starts the whole process over, but I hope a fix comes out soon.

Finally, DocToGo is awesome. I have really needed this for a long time to be able to carry certain documents with me to access information on the fly. One strange thing did happen thought. I had already performed the OTA update for DTG to get the latest and greatest. I had forgotten to load BBMaps on the initial OS upgrade, so I went back to loader.exe to put it on my device. At the end of loader wizard, it showed that it did not recognize many of the DocsToGo files, looks like most were for other languages than English, and it removed them. This basically took DTG back to the original install and SheetsToGo was missing. So, I had perform the OTA upgrade a second time to get it working again.

I got the same thing - twice now - not everytime I've fired up DM. I just click CANCEL.

Maybe it's the .133 upgrade someone else posted about but I don't want to risk my current working .127 until I know. Maybe it is just DM being odd (it kept wanting to REMOVE my Sheet-to-go)
