    need some help on installing bbm 5.0

    I need some help on installing bbm 5.0. I have the .alx file and the .cod files. This was the way to download bbm 5.0 before the ota came out. I never did it this way because the ota came out when I was trying to intall it this way. so now i was trying out new hybrids and went back to .151. Now i need to get bbm 5.0 back on my phone. so where do i put the .alx and .cod files.

    thanks

    ...if you are willing to try OTA, here is a link to all of them: BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 OTAs. Choose the one appropriate for your OS, ie 4.7 for 4.7, etc. They are all BBM 5s, just modified to work with each OS. Good luck.

    Next
    Now its loading
    Finish
    So I went to my 4.7 folder and then went to the java folder where the .cod's are at. I put the .alx file in there and it still didnt work. So is that what i was supposed to do?

    .alx goes into: c/program files/common files/research in motion/shared/loader files/OS PASTE HERE

    I agree OTA is easier. Drinking may not be the best time to copy and paste into a OS

    Just sent the OTA link to my email to try it, this looks like an easy solution to get BBM

    Hey Harly,

    Would you tell me a couple of things?

    Which OS do you have installed on your 9530?

    Next, which BBM 5 OTA version did you download?
    5.0.0.8 or 5.0.8

    Thanks

    Wirelessly posted (Storm 9530 )

    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.


    ***EDIT*** Correction ***
    The correct version of BBM 5.0 for the V8 Crackman Hybrid is v5.0.0.8
