    I was trying to download an app but it says my blackberry world app is out of date. So I tried updating it from my phone and it said that the page I was sent to to upgrade no longer exists. So I plugged my phone into the computer and used the desktop app, and it said no updates were available, and showed me the current os plus a downgrade. In the letterbox below the choices it said some updates were available so I hit ok. Then it says an update desktop software component must be installed, so I hit install, and then it doesn't work and tells me: An error has occurred while downloading the BlackBerry Desktop Software. Please try again.

    No idea what the updated desktop software is, or what it does. Anyways I can't use the app store because I can't upgrade the blackberryworld app itself, and the link to download it appears to be broken or no longer in existence.

    Anyone got any ideas? I suppose I can live with what's on there right now.

    Download and install this on your PC - BlackBerry - Desktop Software for PC - US. Once you have that installed, it should show you the updates.

    That's what I'm using on my desktop to try and upgrade it. It says there are no updates, but if I hit install anyways it say sit has to install a new desktop component to proceed, and then it fails and says try again later.

    What version of BlackBerry World do you have?

    Edit: Found a .jad file for BB World version 4.3.0.26 (for OS5): http://rroyy.com/apps/BlackBerry_Wor...BerryWorld.jad

    Should work OTA.

    Should be able to open the link directly from your device.
