    ok, somewhat of a newbee. I operate my BB on 4.2 if I upgrade to one of the 4.5s and it doesn't work how can I reload 4.2?

    Also if I upgrade my 8830 WE will this void my warantee?

    Basically a chicken as you can tell but it's time to take the leap.

    Proper Upgrade / Downgrade Procedure

    Loading any OS not from your carrier voids the warranty. It usually doesn't matter though so long as the version is the same as what the carrier offers. In the case of an 8830 and Verizon though, it would void the warranty since they do not offer 4.5 for the 8830.

    I know they tell you it voids the warranty, but I have talked to their customer support many times without a problem. They have always help me and they know I am on 4.5. I have even traded in my phone with 4.5 loaded.

    But the person above is probably right and its at your own risk.

    There is no official version released by any carrier for the 8830 yet.

    The box to install Brickbreaker probably wasn't checked when you upgraded. Open DM and the app loader back up and check the box to install it.

    I downloaded a version of 4.5 from a LinkedIn forum. It works pretty well (browser seems better) and I've watched some video from Youtube. However, I did lose all the standard ringtones that came with my Bberry when I downloaded it.

    That's an issue with .77 version. Search the BETA4.5 forum, it's been covered extensively on how to fix that. It must be fixed because otherwise alerts will not work properly.
