    Default Bold 9700 os 6.0 help!! How to downgrade

    Hi guys i installed the os6 for my 9700 a few days ago, now i'm not happy with it and i want to downgrade it back to os 5. The os 6 is nice but it takes more than a half of my memory card. The BBM and some other apps are working really slow than the old times. I tried the BBSAK way and it didnt work. While the Desktop manager is installing the os 5 , it stops when downloading modules. How can i downgrade my phone to os 5 ? PLEASE HELP!!

    You will have to wipe your phone and delete any newer OS's such as OS 6.

    1-Un install OS 6 from your computer
    2- download and install your desired OS 5 on your computer.
    3- take the battery out of your BB and connect it to your PC (without battery)
    4- do not use DM, go to app loader in Research in motion folder on your PC.
    5- when app loader connects to your BB, it will aSk you if you want to downgrade, click that option.
    6- whilst your BB is connected and being updated, insert the battery and replace the back cover.

    All done.

    What he said, I just downgraded to 5.0.0.979 as well.
    Too many bugs that I discovered, not immediately, but after using it for a week.

    Camera flash doesn't work always, BBM messages, can't copy / paste

    If the OS you are installing is from your carrier then you do not have to delete the vendor file. If it is a different carrier then you will have to delete the vendor file.

    It usually takes a while on first boot to recompile the loaded JVM. After which it's much faster.

    I am still rocking os6..some mild bugs, but thus far I am sticking it out. I imagine or hope with each leak it gets better and dare I say an official one comes out in due time....

    Also reguarding pulling your battery out. Is that neccessary? I have done many upgrading/downgrading and never saw that in any of the directions and always left mine in....

    Hopefully it isn't a big deal.

    You went into the right folder already. Delete the VENDOR.XML file and close the folder.

    I updated to OS 6 LAST NIGHT.. & i hate it.. im currently downloading 5.0.0.979 (hopefully it is better; i have an earlier version before updating... IF i hate this too ill be downgrading AGAIN)...

    I am not the only person I know that has updated and then chosen to go back down... OS6 sucks on the 9700!

    Pictures on BBM take WAY to long to load (display pics or pic that are sent to you)
    My Ubertwitter kept messing up...
    I have done a battery pull about 3 /4times within like 12 hours
    & idk if its just me or the browser seems slow too

    Brilliant layout but very frustrating!

    & I was SO excited about it... looks like I'll be downloading an OS6 Theme instead of the real deal...

    I wouldnt recommend ANYone to update -- its trash

    A better option instead of downgradeing to OS 5, is just install this theme >>> http://forums.crackberry.com/f146/al...-theme-580121/


    This way, you get to keep OS 6 and the great webkit browser, while having a similar to OS 5 look without the annoying ribbon bar.

    Use BBSAK to do the OS loading.

    www.bbsak.org

    Download the OS from your carrier, install it. Use BBSAK to load it via Load OS > select OS, click Load OS. Follow all instructions on screen. You'll be fine.

    You need to download OS 6 (ior 5) from your computer, not from your blackberry.
