Need help loading os 5.0 on my bold 9000
My bold is currently running V18.104.22.1683 I would like to update it to V22.214.171.1242 Rogers or related.Which ever is more stable? Ideas?
The issue is when I begin DM manager... And check for Blackberry Device updates... An option for 5.0 (preferred) v4.6 current and a downgrade option pops up.
So I select 5.0 and click next....Then the following message pops up.
" There was an error updating your software"
This BlackBerry® Device Software upgrade includes new features and significant enhancements to the BlackBerry® solution and, as such, is only available to users with an active BlackBerry subscription. To learn more about BlackBerry® service, please visit BlackBerry - Data Plan - Upgrade Your BlackBerry Data Plan.
What does this mean? How can I by-pass this? Would BBSAK help?
Thanks in advance

I would actually encourage everyone not to download OS 126.96.36.1992 (I'm on AT&T) as there are a ton of known bugs with it. I made the mistake of doing this last night without Googling to see what people were saying and now have a phone with no alert sounds, can't make a call, my e-mail is slow or doesn't come in at all... Now I'm trying to downgrade and it's just a hassle.

The path to these files are below...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files
If your running lower than Windows Vista I think it is, the path is....
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files
Old files left in the loader file path WILL interfere with an upgrade. Hope this solves your issue.
I had the OS 188.8.131.522 posted by members in Vietnam. I had the same problem of alert sounds and could not access tinhte.com (a popular tech-productions website in Vietam) via Opera mini. Therefore, nobody wanted to upgrade with ...882 since it released.
I am currently reading this thread posted by Joshjamie, and I found it useful. Partly understand why it was supposed to have some bugs and left there.
Many thanks to everyone, and especially Joshjamie
