I was able to restore memo's that I lost when installing 184.108.40.206 so that's great.
However I have been trying to do a new back up and it will not work 'error backing up databases'. I cleared my internet caches but it still will not work.

Did anyone else read that in the new license agreement it says RIM tracks the activation of certain product features for administrative purposes and your PIN and installation identifier will be automatically registered with RIM up activation of certain features of this software.
It could be me but I never noticed this before.
So beware all you installers they will know from your PIN that you installed this. Don't know if it really matters in the grand scheme of things but just thought i would mention it.

I just upgrade my DM 4.6 to 5.0. I use Bold running .247 OS.
Everything works fine, faster synch with Outlook 2007. backups work fine.. but to be honest, no other major changes. I expected much more in this version.
Anyway, it seems the only reason they have DM 5 is to make it compatible with the 5 OS versions that will soon allow us to upgrade our BB devilces, or at least some of its later models.

Just a thought.
What I would like to see is the ability to backup just 3rd party apps the same way that you back up the address book, pics, ect.

Definitely agree with everyone on the loading. Here's some more noticeables:
- more user friendly messages (i.e. when the device needs to reboot, it says, "This could take as long as 30 minutes..."
- cleaner interface
- again, the speed is improved
- checking, "don't check for updates" really mean that it's not gonna search for updates every time it loads
- hasn't crashed while i'm writing this

grand find, just updated mine, no more roxio the memory hog! Should I also add, this applies across the devices not just the bold/storm/what have you, works on my pearl, and got rid of the roxio media manager, just use the native one from blackberry now on 5.0 DM

if you have one installed and prefer to stick with the roxio one it will leave it there, however if you chose to remove it will be removed during the upgrade and left with a BB media manager native I think.

Re: Bbdm 5.0
Well the thing is that I have the 4.7 BBDM without Media Manager because I have the New Full version of Roxio software on my Computer and I'm afraid to install it cause it's going to down grade my Roxio Software cause it happen b4 so that's why I was asking is this is the one without the Media Manager cause truly I don't even use it...Angel

Here's how to fix it.
Why won't my OS update? I deleted the Vendor.xml file! - BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community
This was written for 4.7, but it applys equally to 5.
