    How do I install new BBM on 8300 Curve

    Hi all!
    I'm new here and I couldn't seem to find what I'm looking for.
    I have a BB 8330 Curve with the 4.5.0.77 OS.
    I tried loading BBM 5.0 and it won't work. I can't even seem to go back to the old BBM....
    I also wanted to upgrade my OS to the new one that's out.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    BBM5 will not work with OS 4.5.0.77 unfortunately. In order to install BBM5 you will need to upgrade your OS. Do you know how to perform the upgrade of the OS?

    Download links for the upgraded OS's can be found here

    Welcome to BlackberryOS Woobie

    The first thing is the new BBM 5.0 will not work on the .77 OS you will need to upgrade that OS. The good news is it sounds like you want to do that anyway

    Here is a link to the latest OS for the 8330

    4.5.0.160

    Once you download that to your PC go ahead and install to the pc. Once installed

    Navigate to C-program files-common files-research in motion- app loader and delete the vendor file -it will look like this





    In the same folder (apploader) you will see laoder.exe double click that and install to your phone ---app loader looks like this




    **Don't forget to back up your Phone and 3rd party apps before installing the new OS to your phone ***

    If you have never backed up your 3rd party apps here is a video walk through to show you how

    Once you have this new OS installed it will put the old BBM on your phone. Then you can proceed to install the new BBM 5.0

    Just post if you have anymore questions or you get stuck somewhere.
