Are you using the link at the top of this thread? If you download the storm version you will see it in the apps menu but it will not work.
I'm having the same issue. Loaded the OS without bbm, did my 3 battery pulls, then downloaded the ota link, shows in the app list under options but no way for me to access the program. battery pulled 30 secs and stilll same issue with not showing.
Deleted bbm ota , next going to restore my back ups and apps and then try to reload bbm from ota. wish me luck.
Isn't the storm OTA for 4.7 OS? That won't work if you upgraded to the 5.0 OS - is this correct?
P3 thanks! This is how I got mine to work :banana:
OK, I'm having the same problem so now going back to 4.7 then upgrade to 5.0 (OTA) and from what everyone is saying that should work
I wiped my device and installed 5.0 OS and then this bbm 5.0 ota and I'm getting:
and in details "907 invalid COD File not found"
Anyone know why?
is the link for the bbm 5.0 for 5.0 OS.
i think my problem is that i was using the 4.7 storm vs of bbs 5.0
You will want to delete off all 4.7 bbm software off your phone.
FORE HEAD SLIP! Error by user here. lol
Ok so i just installed 5.0 OS and also installed BB Messenger 5.0 after. It seems some are having a problem and if i was in their shoe I know I always wanted someone to break it down in detail of what they did to get it working, so that's wat i'm going to do.
€Deleted .151os from the computer.
€Restarted the Computer.
€Downloaded and installed 5.0 to the computer.
€Connected Phone to the computer.
€Started JL_Cmder and did a complete wipe, then when the wipe was done, exited the program. (leaving the phone still connected to the computer)
€Opened BB Desktop Manager, then clicked Application Loader and under Update Software, I clicked the Start button. Then waited till the update was done installing on the phone.
€Then did the initial tutorial.
€Once the tutorial finished, I did a battery pull. (I left the phone off for a minute)
€When the phone restarted I opened up the browser, i put in http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9530-operating-software and then clicked on the forum BBM 5.0 and leaked os 18.104.22.168 SOLUTION.
€Then clicked on the StormOTA link in the post.
€Once the program finished installing on to the phone, I did another battery pull.
€When the phone came back on, I went to the folder "Instant Messaging" and the BB Messenger icon was already in there. (no i didn't check before installing to see if there was an icon)
€Clicked on the BB Messenger Icon and it was working.
and that's exactly how I installed it all. I know to some this might seem like a waste of a post, but I know for people like me to see a really stripped down step by step of wat others did always helps trace my steps to see if I did something wrong.
Hope that helps others.
