    You mean, if you would give your berry to e.g. me and if I the could tell, if it is an official OS or a hybrid? If this is the question, then the answer is: most likely yes. You can read out the single COD files (making your OS) and check which version number they are displaying - so if they - especially those from the core - display different/several version numbers, it is most likely a hybrid...

    on the other hand - you could always return to an official OS if required...

    I believe the newer versions have that button. Technically speaking, it executes the same command as the Load OS button.

    Please help no more blackberry maps after upgrade to 5.0

    First of all, Neo, this was the most amazing and easiest tutorial ever. In the last year I have jumped over a number of devices from Palm Treo to iPhone and no one has been so forthgiving in their help.

    After I completed this everything is running but one of my critical Apps the VQ Carfinder cannot run because the Blackberry Maps Application is not on there and I cannot download because it says its not supported.

    Can someone please help me?? I need this App as I live in a densely populated metropolitan area and barring any help I will have no choice but to go back to the old version device software 4.6.0.304

    Thanks TevanSNY... That was actually the first thing I finally found after much googling. I added that app but I get the error:
    "Uncaught exception: Could not start internal application"

    Apparently BBSAK had backed up Google Maps but NOT Blackberry Maps, or Blackberry Messenger, or Blackberry App World.

    Which actually kind of makes sense because I don't even see it in the list of applications unlike how it used to be on the 4.6.0.304 where I simply had to go and reinstall it from the link below if it ever went missing and the icon would show up again (I even had it bookmarked):
    http://mobileapps.blackberry.com/devicesoftware/entry.do?code=maps_sbi

    When I try to do this on the newly installed 5.0.0.348 I get this:
    "Sorry, your device does not meet the system requirements that are needed to support Blackberry Maps."

    What's even weirder is that before I upgraded my OS I switched to T-Mobile from AT&T and everything is unlocked... Like I said, I was able to download Blackberry Messenger again and also Blackberry App World.

    I'm not sure but during installation of this OS 5.0.0.348 there was no option to download other things other than Core Apps/System Files etc. Everything else was grayed out.

    So basically this does not solve the problem...anyone have a direct JAD link to BB Maps for 5.0 that I could try?

    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.

    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?
    Resistance is futile.

    If you have an ALX for the cods, you can simply use Load OS to launch app loader, and app loader can take the ALX and install the apps onto your device.
