I also use my facebook app alot and really just want my device to work properly. I am not sure how to downgrade. I was looking on my BB Desktop stuff and there is an option to downgrade so I may try that. I am totally confused on how to do my upgrade to .230 and delete this and delete that. I have some BB programs installed on my computer and am not sure which ones I should delete and which ones I shouldn't.

    Remember I am not exactly technically inclined. But I am getting there.
    Tamara, I would really upgrade to 230. The 191 build was not nearly as good as 230 is. My music player works fine, facebook works fine, IM clients works fine. There is really no reason not to go to 230

    in my control panel I have
    BB Desktop Software 5.0
    BB Device Software Updater
    BB Device Sftwr v4.7.0 for BB Smartphone 9530
    BB Device Srtwr v5.0.0 for BB "" "
    BB Internal Apps for RIM Version 5.0.0

    So if I want to go ahead with the .230 upgrade I would like to start from scratch since I crashed my pc last time and I think there were some errors during the install. Which of these programs can I safely delete. Then I assume I download the .230 file from the links provided from you fine people and follow all the instructions?

    Sorry for being a pain!
    I appreciate all you help!

    Original 230 or BBC's hybrid 230

    I've been thinking about this for a couple of days and didn't see a thread that addressed it so I thought I would ask here.
    I've had the original 230 since it leaked and it runs very well.
    What is suppose to be different or better with BBC's 230?
    I've run virtually all of Crackmans hybrids with success and was just wondering about this. Any advice would be appreciated.

    You are not a pain!

    Yes, you have some things in there that need to be deleted. Uninstall everything except for the Desktop software and the Desktop Software updater.

    Then just follow this video. It's really not as hard as it sounds

    Ok I have gotten to the part where I am in the App loader @ C drive and have my apps listed. However the video says the first BB 5.0 (with subdued checkmark) should say update and the second one should say Install. Both of mine say UPDATE? Did I miss a step somewhere? Have been following instructions pretty closely...he he. But that doesn't mean I didn't miss something??

    Did you wipe your phone in adavnce? Other wise it will think you're upgrading instead of installing.
