    really? 5.0.0.230 has been around for almost a full year, and 5.0.0.438 has been in existance for almost 8 months or so.

    if you want the full 8330 5.0 experience, head over to BBTweaks.com and grab the latest OS5 hybrid. its stellar

    OS5 creates a folder in your app screen called "IM" or something like that. BBM should be in there.

    Hello, I am sorry to post such a dumb question but I am somewhat of a newby to the BB. I am trying to upgrade my Sprint Curve 8330 to 5.0. How in the f... do I do this? I downloaded BB Desk top, and seperately downloaded 5.0 (I think) but have not figured out how to merge the two and get it on the actual BB. ANY help would be more than appreciated. Much thanks in advance for anyone who knows.

    No problem. Make sure you have a 8330 and not a 8330m. Go to BBTweaks.com. There are two articles to read. First is 'How to Maximise Your Memory' and second is 'Self-Installing Hybrids - 8330 Specific'. Download the latest OS 5.0 hybrid. Believe me when I say you don't want to use the original Boost 5.0 OS as it has huge memory leaks. The self installing hybrid will overlay the 5.0 os that you already have. PM me if you have any problems. You'll love your new BB OS.

    Okay, thank you for the reply! So far, very helpful but I have a few more questions if you don't mind.

    I was originally trying to download 5.0 from blackberry.com, should I not do that? Do I need to use the BB Desktop to properly load this software? I do NOT have 5.0loaded on my BB yet, so is what your telling me a "boost/patch" of some kind to add to the 5.0, or is it the only version of 5.0 I should download.

    As I said, I am new, so can I assume that downloads not directly from BB are safe for my BB?

    THANK YOU AGAIN.

    Here's what you do. Go to BBTweaks.com. We have everything you need on the website: base OS, hybrid OS, BBSAK, you already have Desktop Manager. Read through the tutorial carefully and follow all the steps. If you do that, it is fool-proof.

    Jerry, I presume...thanks again. One (I hope) last dumb question. I am following letter for letter the instructions on this process. Step one says I need to download "The specified Blackberry device base OS". Does that mean I download what I currently have on my phone, to my desk top before anything else?

    Thank you!

    Amy,
    In the BBTweaks.com website, go to the menu Hybrids/8330/8330 Hybrid v438.12.2 and you see DOWNLOAD v438.12.2. Click on that and it will ask you if you want to install the base OS. All you really need ahead of time is Desktop Manager.

    Go to BBTweaks.com & read the tutorials there. There have been several upgrades to the 8330 hybrid since the previous post. Email me Jerry@BBTweaks.com if you have any questions/problems.

    You need to delete the vendor.xml. See my previous post for instructions & downloads.

    don't bother with this leak!!!

    you won't be able to install the latest BBM with this version (it's too low).

    Find the 5.0.0.438 official by boostmobile in the 8330 section. This will allow you to get the latest BBM.

    5.0.0.438 will likely be the last code released for the 8330.
