I have an att 8800 with version 4.2.1.79... I want to get my audio to go over my bluetooth headset...

I am running desktop manager 4.5.0.15 (may 2008)

well it depends. Which OS version did you try to install exactly ?
Did you take the one that concerns your mobile phone ? 8300 is different from 8310 which is different from 9000.

Try this downgrade your desktop manager to below 4.5 (preferably 4.2 SP2). Then try to upgrade your device OS. Let me know if it works.
