World Phone - upgrade to 4.5???

My World Edition (8830) is currently running on the 4.2 os.

When I try to download the new 4.5 the Installer Application states I'm currently running the latest os.

 

 Will the new 4.5 os not work with my BB 8830 World Edition?

OS 4.5 has not been released by any carrier or RIM for the 8830 model BlackBerry.

 

Beta versions are floating around, but nothing official.

So you're saying I'm maxed out on 4.2 until an 'official' 4.5 release becomes available for my phone?

It is up to you whether or not you use google to find that beta OS floating around the innerweb Smiley Happy

 

But as far as official releases, release .196 from Sprint is the latest official released version.

Re: World Phone - upgrade to 4.5???

Would you, being a Blackberry-savy individual and all, recommend installing a beta 4.5 version just to get the additional space out of the 8 gig card?

 

Would you go as far as to send me a link????

Re: World Phone - upgrade to 4.5???

Can't send you a link... I haven't even looked for it.

 

But I do know some people have been running it and haven't had any issues. The only warning I would pass along is that if your carrier doesn't support it yet, if you have any issues on the BB, you will need to downgrade the OS before they will deal with it. 

 

Otherwise, go for it. There are common instructions on how to upgrade a device here:
