    OS 5.0.0.438 Findings & Fixes


    Thursday brought Blackberry Curve 8330 users some news that Boost Mobile was sending out a 5.0 OS through the Desktop Manager. It was known at the time when we would see the release on the BlackBerry site.
    Boost Mobile released 5.0.0.438 for the BlackBerry Curve 8330. It is now available from the BlackBerry downloads site.
    With 5.0 starting to be the status quo for the release of the newer devices, we have all started to see the trend with carriers picking up the 5.0 builds.
    We got to see the screen shot for this OS yesterday so it looks as if Curve users will get to try out an official.

    Curve users drop us some notes and let us know what you think.

    Does this work on Sprint? (ie. does Sprint's service books support a 5.x OS) My sister has this and I'm sure she'd like if I upgraded her.

    probably a stupid question, but will this work on the 8350i? Or is it a completely different because of the hardware?

    Completely different, sorry. An OS can only be installed on the specific model it was created for. IE: 8330, 8350, 9550.

    You have to delete the vendor file In the loader folder if your not on boost.

    Exclamation Email Setup Application

    When trying to install this update on my 8330, I get to the normal Loader window asking to check which applications to install/updgrade and then I keep getting the same error message. The box for Email Setup Application is checked and grayed out. When I click next to start loading the OS/applications, the AppLoader presents an error message saying that:

    "The application 'Email Setup Application' cannot be loaded because required components are missing."

    I do not know why this error message keeps occurring. I have reinstalled the OS on my computer multiple times. All of the necessary steps for loading unofficial OSes have been taken (i.e. deleting Vendor.xml). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you have any other OS's installed?

    Alright do this for me if you will. Open DM. At the top righ, click on Help, choose About. Once that dialog opens, you'll see it has three tabs. Change to the last tab, Device Software. What specifically is listed in this tab?

    Also on your phone go to Options > About, and what does the first line and third line say?
