I have been using OS6 for about 2 weeks now and I have to say, I don't like it. I'd rather go back to OS5...does anyone have some easy to follow instructions to go back down to OS5?
The guide above covers upgrading really well, all you need is the older OS. I'd suggest the official release 126.96.36.1990 from Sprint for the Curve 9330. I have been running it for about three weeks now and have had no problems (besides the terrible browser that plagues all of OS5).
When you go through the steps and start installing the OS, the installer will most likely warn you that you are downgrading and recommend that you do not, ignore the warning and choose the option that lets you downgrade.
Hope this helps!
Last night I made the colossal mistake of syncing my replacement 9700 to my new iMac, which conveniently asked if I wanted to upgrade to the new OS 6.0. I am an idiot and I said yes. It has been a nightmare ever since. I have 85% less ringtones, the entire calendar view is different, everything about the 9700 (and OS 5.0.whatever) that I was accustomed to is now gone.
I don't deal with change very well... and I am clearly a Luddite.
Can anyone *PLEASE* help me figure out how to download the older OS not only to my iMac but then back to my 9700? I have seen nothing but confusion in the bajillion searches I have done for this...
I can't tell you how much I would appreciate some help!
First you need to find out which version of OS 5 you want on your device. You can search for OS software for the 9700 in our Downloads Center.
Once you have downloaded the OS you want, just follow the advice in this post.
Thank you, Joseph --- I'm trying right now... fingers crossed!
