niiice! any chance i can get this working on the 8830? i didn't see a link for the 88xx series, but i figure since mine is as powerful as the 83xx series curve, and is running OS 4.5, someone should find a way. will the curve 8300 version work, by any chance, on mine?

Welcome to BlackberryOS. The general requirements for BBM 5.0 is a device running at least OS version 188.8.131.52. For the 8830 use the same version as the Curve since both devices currently can run OS 4.5.

If you are running a version less than 184.108.40.206 you will need to upgrade your software first.
Do This by following the directions from SMCOLDBB that I posted below to upgrade your software.
first step backup your data via dm
back up your 3rd parties with this link ; Video - How to backup your Third-Party Applications
remove any os from your pc c: control panel > add/remove programs > delete any RIM os there one will be DM the other if any will be the os
download this 220.127.116.11 https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E607FE7CC0E1A0
once it's loaded on the PC ( takes about 20-30minutes) follow this path
c: program files > common files > research in motion > apploader - at the bottom of the list you should see a file called a vendor file - delete that. reboot pc
download this; http://www.berryosfiles.com/downloads/BBM_4.5.0.zip
to your "my doc's" extract or save to..: open that and right click on the single file ( blackberry messanger .alx) copy
reopen c: program files > common files > research in motion > now go to shared > loader - place it here
go back to BBM5 file and select every other file and place them in here;
c: program files > common files > research in motion > now go to shared > loader - open your os and open the java folder and right click paste 0 over write all files
NOW YOUR DONE INSTALLING BBM5.0
now we load--- go to c: program files > common files > research in motion > apploader and with your device pluged in open the apploader icon (looks like a little phone) follow the steps but make sure you put a checkmark beside any of the apps in the list you want to be placed back onto your device.
give it a shot and let us know if you get stuck

Welcome to BlackberryOS. Not a bother at all. What device are you looking to install it on and what OS are you running on it?
