Trouble With All 5.0 OS's and Activating on BES *Experienced BES Admins Apply Within*
So I'm no stranger to leaked OS's on blackberries and have done many successful installs over the years, but I've run into a problem I cannot solve and need the assistance of a few more brains to help me figure it out.
I am running on a BES v184.108.40.206 (ugh I know) and am able to use both the 220.127.116.11 and .53 OS's without any problems. Whenever I install any of the 5.0 OS's and begin the BES activation, my device starts to randomly reboot every 5 or 10 minutes. This only starts to occur after I begin the activation process as I have left the install alone for over an hour with no problems before attempting to activate. When I check my device logs on the BES, it seems like whenever the IT policy starts to apply is when the reboots are occurring. My first thought was obviously that the older versions of BES are not compatible with 5.0 handheld software however, I cannot find this information anywhere. Then I figured they are using different types of encryption but that does not seem to be the case as both use AES.
This is really frustrating me as I hate being behind the times when a new OS is out there and everybody raves about how good it is. Below is some additional information that will answer the obvious questions.
Yes, I deleted the vendor file.
Yes, I uninstalled Internal Tools.
Yes, I wiped with JL_Cmdr and loaded the OS fresh.
No, I am not installing any third party software.
The only features I'm loading are BBM, DocsToGo, Memopad and Taskpad. My BES does not require S/MIME.
We run 2 BES' with a total of about 900 users and, to the best of my knowledge, I am the only one trying to activate with a 5.0 OS.
Any help or information on why this is not working and what I would need to do with the BES to correct it (other than upgrade to 5.0) would be much appreciated.
