Default Trying to upgrade to OS v4.5

Please Login to Remove!

I have tried this most of the day. I downloaded the install file, removed the vendor file, removed my media card, installed the new OS, formatted my media card, reinstalled back onto the media card, BUT...my 8800 wants to keep rebooting by on its own. I finally reinstalled the AT&T v4.2 and no problems.
Don't know what else I can do to get this to work. The little I got to "play" with the OS I REALLY LIKE IT. The layout of the email is do much better and the other features are really nice.
If anyone can help PLEASE let me know. THANK YOU.

Did you try the OS after reformatting the media card but before moving all your files back to the card? My guess is you moved the corrupt file back to the card and the rebooting began again.

So...I should have formatted my media card first, then install the update, then move everything back on? Or after the format and update should I reform again then move everything back on the media card? I saw a coment that the media card should also be removed when installing the new OS?

There is a file(s) that are conflicting with the media card scan that 4.5 does. If you format the card and then simply move everything back you haven't gotten rid of the problem. You need to figure out what file (could be a pic or a video file) is causing the reboots. I suggest formatting the card and leaving the card empty for a while and see what happens. Then if all works fine move files back one folder at a time and see if the reboots start. Try and narrow it down to which folder is causing it. Then narrow it down to the file.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will give it another try tomorrow and move one folder at a time as you suggest. I have a feeling it might be a movie I converted from a dvd. Probably move my pictures and music (as you suggest) then maybe the movie.
Again Thank you.

Just do one folder at a time after using it for a while formatted but with no files.

I will follow your suggestions. Give me a few days to do this and I will post my results with what I find caused the problem with the rebooting.

I updated my phone this morning. Gave it a while and it was stable so I added my ring tones and waited - stable. Added some music a little later - stable. Finally added some pictures - Stable! I believe my video is causing the reboot problem. Can I get some direction to where information is located on the best way to convert a DVD to place it on my phone? I really live the layout for email and the change in the phone directory. I have not noticed any change in my memory storage but plan on using the Blackberry Setup suggestions to clean it up and make more room. Thank you for all the help!!

If you go through the registration process (it's free), you can download an updated version of Docs to Go.

It will include all 3 apps - Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. It is version 1.005

I found out the registration, but this is paid only. Because I lived in Czech republic, I have no possibility to pay through the internet, because of our Credit cards. Is there any option to upgrade this free?

There is no charge to register the free version included in the 4.5 OS.

The charge is for the premium version, which is not what you're looking for.

Don't select anything that says premium when you go to the registration page.

Or, you could check this post.
