Re: *9800 TORCH NEW SOFTWARE OS UPDATE - ANNOUCMENT TODAY - (v6.0.0.695)

If I go to Software Updates on my Torch I see this version...can I just download it right on to my Torch?

 

Can anyone point me to the best procedure for doing the update?

 

 

Thanks.

Yes you can do it over the air, but please do a device backup prior to doing so.I have seen a few failed upgrades in the past and with out a backup you will be out of luck.

Did the update then restored all my settings/data...went pretty flawlessly via the BB Desktop Software.

 

 

Let's just hope this fixes the GUI issues now.

No improvements, just new issues.  Man am I mad! I almost drove into a tree trying to get one app to close so I can see my Nav app. What the hell was this upgrade supposed to fix anyway!?
