    Is it okay if I start a thread on this... I feel like maybe I'm in the wrong place.

    Wiped BB 9000 and then installed 5.0.0.348. Could not download Blackberry Maps for the life of me although briefly I was able to go to http://www.blackberry.com/devicesoft...y.do?code=maps and download something which didn't help bring the icon up even though I tried this BB Maps Launcher http://www.gln.bz/ads.nsf/bbmapslaunch.jad (courtesy of
    BB Maps launcher for AT&T - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com)

    Thought maps too valuable to lose to gain 5.0 and wanted to go back to old device software. Wiped again and went back to 4.6.0.304. Of course when I did that I regained Blackberry Maps etc.
    I thought I would now have to remain on 4.6.

    But then I found another problem which was that since it was my first time using BBSAK to restore apps, I had used "Restore Apps" in BBSAK 1.7 which by default installs everything in one Application Folder under Applications i.e. a BBSAK APP folder on a blackberry by default with uniform permissions.(See this for more info on this saga: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/s...-versions.html)
    Since I wanted the ability to delete apps individually and/or set permissions by App level rather than under the umbrella of BBSAK as one App, I just decided to remove the BBSAK Folder using APP LOADER and then restore the COD files individually using either BBSAK or BB DESKTOP MANAGER as mentioned in the above link.

    ...While I was using APP LOADER to remove the BBSAK Folder so that I could reinstall COD Files individually, I accidentally left 5.0 OS and Core Applications checked thinking it was 4.6 (don't ask, I had been at it for 24 hours and zonked!) because it said "Update" in front of it and if I unchecked anything it would turn to "Remove" (I don't even know how it got there...maybe the left over files from the OS 5.0 install). Since it said Update infront of it, I let it go... I also had all the other things such as BB Messenger and BB Maps Checked (again I mistakenly thought this was because I had 4.6 checked but MAPS must have been re-downloaded when I reinstalled OS 4.6)
    Before I hit finish, somewhere in the APP LOADER perhaps under Advanced Settings it also asked me whether I wanted to Backup and then Restore Device Apps Or Erase All Applications and of course I chose I wanted to keep what I had since I had spent all that time reloading OS 4.6. -- I think this time has taught me to always Back up Device Data so it can Restore what you had before unless doing a complete Wipe and OS Install (Use BBSAK for that).

    ...When I hit Next and it completed its cycle and phone was rebooting, I saw the 5.0 OS Device software loading on the phone and I was freaked out, tired and disgusted by now, thinking I would have to wipe device again and then reload OS 4.6 and then reload all the backed-up BBSAK Cod Files individually. Man I was tired.
    ...But when the Blackberry finished re-booting; BAM there it was... My beloved Blackberry Maps ready to be used with my even more beloved VQ Carfinder... What's more, I was now "accidentally" on the Blackberry Device software 5.0 AGAIN!!

    Its possible that after the first 5.0 install you have to do an Update check again to see if there are any updated versions of 5.0 OS or Core Apps... I don't know what happened. But for some reason this time I had BB Maps on OS 5.0.

    Confused?
    I hope not. I hope someone else can gain from this 'accidental' experience. Believe me I had exhausted every other option before reverting to BB OS 4.6 just to get my BB Maps back.

    First post from a newbie here guys.

    I ran .442 and found that periodically my radio would be shut off for no good reason. I'm on Rogers .351 and was thinking that the Bell .423 might be a good downgrade from .442.

    The newbie question is: is there definitely no carrier tweaks embedded in their BB releases that would be specifically needed for their network to run optimally on the device? I was told that there might be hence the radio turning off and other anomalies.

    Accordingly, I was thinking the Bell .423 might be a good option given the same network (I think) protocols (if this is the right word).

    Thanks.

    Well that went great. None of my apps were restored so I guess I have a the next few hours reinstalling everything.

    Tried 1.7 and it went fine, did you get this message when it was done?

    Neo I would double check that... I got that as well but it only saves the .alx not .cod's. I had the same trouble and lost all my apps. I have to say as much as this hurts my preferred method is device switch with DM

    Which type of Windows are you using? Have you checked the BBSAK backup folder? Are there any files in there?
