VZW 8330 refusing to acknowledge I have an update

I run a mac, and have connected my VZW 8330 up to my computer and used Desktop Manager to attempt to download 5.0, and it says I don't have an update. I have tried a wireless update and it has told me the same thing. Last time I checked, 8330 was 5.0 supported, so why don't I have an update available?

 

Here are some pictures illistrating my problem

Re: VZW 8330 refusing to acknowledge I have an update

There is OS 5.0 available for blackberry, but only from Boost Mobile. You can download it from here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=32F6C513B25DF1C670753EB7335C4258

 

Then follow these instructions to install it on a mac: http://www.whatsgoodblog.com/2009/10/how-to-install-beta-os-or-other-carrier-os-on-blackberry-with-d...

 

I have tried OS 5.0 but found it used up too much memory, so I reverted back to the official OS 4.5 from my carrier. Some features may not work as expected because you are with a different vendor, so be warned.

 

Be sure to backup you phone before attempting anything!

 

Cheers,

Are there plans for verizon to release 5.0, or does anyone know? I'm a little skeptical of installing a version from a different vendor, but if verizon isn't planning on releasing it, I'll do what I must to get the update.

Re: VZW 8330 refusing to acknowledge I have an update

I doubt it since the newer curve (85xx series) has already been released...but I could be wrong, and I hope I am! Boost mobile is the only carrier I know of that has OS 5.0 for now

 

Post back if you have any difficulties with the install
