    First off I think that version is for the 4.7 OS's and the V8 has 5.O files. You need version 5.0.8. My other piece if knowledge about this is that BBC preloaded BBM 5.0 inside the Hybrid. May try running apploader again to get to the configuration screen and select the box for BBM 5.0

    Let me know what you think.
    Is there an OTA for version 5.0.8? When I looked in apploader the box was checked showing BBM 5.0.0.8. Before I loaded the OTA for 5.0.0.8 there was nothing in the apploader for BBM even though I have the V8 loaded.

    Run the apploader again and uncheck the BBM 4.7 application that is listed above the BBM 5.0.
    Let me know what you find. Are you looking in your Instant Message Folder to see if the application was in there?

    I just uninstalled version 5.0.0.8 and everything is now gone from apploader also, what do you suggest to get this done the right way using OTA to make it easy?

    Well, that may have been a little to much...lol but we will manage.

    The first thing I would suggest is as always backup your device.

    Next unistall the versions of BBM 5.0 from your device as well. then reboot your device.

    Then we will try the OTA

    Stand by while I verify the correct version of BBM 5 for V8

    I am being told that it is the version 5.0.0.8

    Here is the OTA;

    http://www.theiexplorers.com/BBM/For_4.7.0/BBMen.jad

    Send this link to your device in an email then select the link to install it to your device.

    Once it is loaded to your device, look to see if it is indeed in your applications list.
    Then look inside your Instant Message Folder.

    One question, Did you by chance shrink this hybrid before you installed it?

    Shrinking is not advised with this hybrid. I recommend installing the straight Hybrid. Then installing BBM 5.O.

    Hello loffredo and Welcome to BBOS.

    A .jad file would be a file that you can directly send to your Blackberry device via email or you could simply navigate you Blackberry browser to the .jad link and select the link.

    Once you have the link on your device, you can then directly load the application that the .jad file correlates to.

    Hope this helps

    Easiest is to email the .jad file to your phone and open it!
