Not updated to OS 4.5.

 

Here is a link to the latest OS for the 8330... with simple instructions.

Yes, you should be able to do so, however I thought you stated above that your computer would not recognize your BB.

 

It may see your Media Card, go to Options > Media Card and enable Mass Storage on the Media Card.

Re: updated software, doesn't work right?

the computer's bb program kept telling me to enable mass media, I did, it never saw it, just kept asking me to enable mass media.  I'm downloading the upgrade to my computer now, maybe that will help.

I don't know what all you did, but obviously you aren't follow the instructions of the link I gave you.

 

Try telling me what you have done.

 

Don't worry about all that being gone, it is just service book provided icons, they will come back.

Re: updated software, doesn't work right?

I updated the software from the link, but updated it to 4.7 instead of 4.5.  followed the instructions on its menus. then did the posted instruction to delete the vender.xml file. 

 

It says ". Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file."

 

The computer rebooted, came up with the 4.7 ver desktop manager.  I did the application loader, it sees the added apps "google talk", "bank of america', a couple of others I forget, hit the next button, it did something then came back to the desktop manager (I don't remember the specifics, it was very automatic).

No , no. You are skipping the first Step. An important step.

 


Download the software here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...03923A1C591DB4

Instructions for installing either version on ANY carrier's 8330:

1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.



So basically what you did with the "4.7" was download and update the Desktop Manager, nothing else.

 

No where do the instructions say to download Desktop Manager. As a matter of fact, these instructions do not even use Desktop Manager to perform the upgrade.

 

Keep trying. I am here.
