Device software 4.5 for BB 8100

I just followed the instructions for dwnld for 4.5, with my phone plugged in and device manage open.  I can not tell a difference in performance of my device, and when I go to about in options, it still lists version 4.2.  I then went back and followed instructions listed on this board in similar posts with no change in outcome.  PLEASE HELP!!

Really????? Oh man, guess I'll just shoot my phone now!!!.....Anyone have any real help to give.  I realize it didn't upgrade.  If I followed all the directions as I saw them on the screen, any idea why it didn't take?
