OS5 for 8520 on Orange

Hi there

 

Just noticed on the Blackberry website that Orange have finally released OS 5.0.0.1168 for the 8520 but when i go through my phone to use the Wireless Update function it says there is no update available, is this because the OS needs updating through Blackberry Manager or is this not an official release?

 

Many thanks

 

Matt

Hello,

 

My advice -- never never never do an OTA OS update...to many problems can ensue. Rather, use this instruction set:

 

Good luck!
