    Welcome to BBOS. You most likely don't have the OS for your phone installed on your computer. Are you using a Tour? It would be helpful if you could fill out the other 3 questions, carrier, mode, OS version as asked of in the first post.

    I have been running BBM 5.0 on my AT&T Bold for a month or so with no problems.

    After I downloaded the official AT&T release of 4.6.0.297 yesterday, the update downgraded my BBM back to 4.6.

    Now none of the methods in this forum are working, and I can't seem to get BBM 5.0 up and running again. I keep getting the "Application is not compatible" error.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Try this link from your phone browser: BBM 5.0 OTA

    You could also try the ones in this thread: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...ota-works.html

    Step One:
    No pictureshere, just download the zip file...remember where it downloaded to we will need to go back there.

    Step Two
    Open the zip folder and extract all contents to a folder name you can remember. I extracted mine to a folder called bbm.


    Step Three
    Open Windows Explorer (I'm assuming you know how) and navigate to the folder where you extracted your new messenger files (mine is bbm)


    Step Four
    Navigate to the For 4.7. 0 (or whatever your folder is) and move the cod files so that they are in the same folder as your alx file (see above, I just moved the cod file and the english cod file.)

    Step Five
    Plug in phone and run DM (No pictues here sorry)

    Step Six
    Select Application Loader


    Step Seven
    Select add/remove application by pressing the start button.


    Step Eight
    Select Browse and Navigate to the folder that you made and put the blackberry messenger alx and cods files. (I navigated to my documents and then bbm)



    Step Nine
    Select the file Blackberry_Messenger alx file. and press open



    Step Ten:
    After you finish step nine you are nearly home free. The next step is to press the Next Button and DM will install this file and reboot your Blackberry.




    If you still need assistance please post the followng information in your post:
    1) Blackberry Model

    I'm new to your site in past had BBM 5.0 running on my BB upgraded to 5.0.0.190 wasn't happy with the OS went back to .100 and now can not for the life of me get BBM 5.0 back on my BB with a icon to BBM 5.0.

    Would somebody please tell me what I'm, doing wrong.

    1) Bold 9000
    2) 5.0.0.100
    3) ATT
    4) This software is not for your BB or something close to that. Ive been trying to load BBM 5.0 I also have gone into the shared folder and manually put the the files in the folder BBM 5.0 is installed no icon is found also did the ota same thing no icon. Thanks, Lindsey

    Welcome to BlackberryOS. If you install BBM 5.0, but can't find the icon, it usually means you have the incorrect version installed. This happens if you try to install say the version for OS 4.6 on a phone running OS 5.0. For OS 5.0, you need to install the version that is for that particular OS version. Try the OTA link I have below. It should work for you hopefully.

    have you checked in the downloads folder?

    then check all the folders if not there...unhide all your icons too by pressing the bb key and show all

    the next time your on, try to catch one of us in the chat room: http://www.blackberryos.com/ajaxim/
    sign in with the same user name and password you have now.

    if you don't catch someone, I'm not sure what else to say until I get more information.

    Did you check every folder and all the way down the home page after you "show all" in your settings?

    does it say 4.7 or 5.0 in the application information?

    Lindsey I just checked with my IT guy and he has said that the fact you are on BES could be preventing you from getting BBM 5 on your phone after downgrading. But that being said, you were able to get it on before. I would hate have you wipe your phone and reload your OS. Best thing might be to check with your IT dept and find out if there is anything on their hand preventing this from happening.

    I just ruled that out did a soft wipe on the BB then reinstalled using the App Loader same thing. Could you give me the step by step instructions on loading BBM 5.0 using the desktop maybe I'm missing something? or doing something wrong.

    5.0.0.100

    I gave up on 5.0.0.100 and loaded the latest 4.6 beta manually loaded BBM 5.0 for 4.6 on the desktop and guess what I now have BBM 5.0. There must be something with 5.0.0.100. :haha:
