    Official: OS 5.0.0.459 for 8530 officially Findings & Fixes





    Sprint has officially released 5.0.0.459 for the 8530. Me personally I am on the "ok this is depressing" train because it seems every other device but the 9550 is getting love from the OS Gods. Just think, soon, maybe some time this year we could possibly see a post just like this but for the 9650. HA, ok, I know I know. That's far fetched. Anyways, you can download 5.0.0.459 from the Blackberry website. Enjoy!

    8530 users let us know what you think.

    Possibly. More than likely, it will just brick your phone. Not all files in the java folder will work between different device models.

    I went to Sprint's website yesterday evening (02/09/2010) & discovered that I could do a wireless update through my BB.....which I did and the new version works just fine. The entire process took about 45 - 60 minutes. I would truly reccomend this OS update for anyone w/Sprint BB Curve 8530.

    That should do it. Here is a refresher course if you would like to use it.
