    All you gotta do is install this upgrade and click the 8330 curve on the dropdown box, make sure you delete the vedor file! and us this OTA for BBM 5. Any problems or questions just ask

    You could use USC's .169.

    I have a question about how to use the ota. When I wanted to try a theme, the ota link gave me an address to type into my browser and then download from the site.

    When I clicked on this ota, it wants to download BBmem.jad to my computer. That does not sound like an over the air install to me. What am I missing? Please tell me how to use the link.

    Thanks Chris.

    That OTA (over the air) link is the one you use on the browser from your phone. .jad and .jar files are installed OTA. so all you gotta do it get on your phone and hit that link

    OK, a little inexperienced (slow) here. When you follow an ota link you do not open or save the .jad/.jar that shows up. Instead you look at the url at the top of the browser page and put that into your bb's browser and get to the site that way.

    So why does following an ota link even bring up the .jar/.jad download file. Can it not just show the url?

    Thanks, Chris.

    A great resource is the dictionary we have here. But you do not need to put that link in manually if you go to m.blackberryos.com and select this thread, hit that link which opens a window that says "download" and "cancel" choose download and it installs all by itself.
