    Newbie .230 Question

    Just got my first BB about 1 1/2 months ago, and am really wanting to try out the new .230. My problem is that I have done so much reading on this, I think I've confused myself lol.

    So my questions are: Is it as simple as dl the OS and installing onto my bb? and if I don't like .230, how hard is it to go back to my current version?

    Hello turbomr2,

    Welcome to

    Let look at it this way...ha ha

    Would you write up exactly step for step what you understand and if you are missing anything then we can help to fill in the blanks...

    How does that work for you?

    Here's a link to a great OS upgrade/downgrade tutorial http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/r...ete-guide.html

    It is very simple, Yea installed the OS on the computer, create a back up of your current phone (this does not back up the OS, just the contacts, txt, mms, BBM etc) delete everything off ur phone via JLcommander or BBKA (i don't think that's the correct abbreviation, but can't remember right now) go to the loader.exe file located in the Rim folder and run the loader...it's very easy.

    **if u have a previous OS installed on the computer, delete that first before installing the new OS**


    Woops, just realized cj100570 posted a link to the downgrade/upgrade post lol

    Sounds good to me. lol

    From what I have read it seems all the apps I use work fine (facebook, bloomberg, personal assistant, and weatherbug are the main ones), and everything runs quicker and smoother for about 99% of the people out there. I guess my biggest worry is since I am new to the bb game, I am worried I am going to screw something up, or if I am in the 1% of people who don't seem to like it, I won't be able to go back to my old OS.

    Awesome!! Thanks for the help, that was insanely fast.

    Just to make sure if I am not a fan of .230 I can go back to .148, correct?

    Thanks again for all the help!
