    I'm new around here, just got my bold saturday. I downloaded about 6-7 free apps over the weekend and I have to say i'm enjoying it so far.

    I'm attempting to update it to 5.0.238 and i'm following This guide. The process seems to be stuck at 11/11 on the restore device data. I select the show details box and it's been sitting on "Database: Address Book" for a good hour now.

    Looking at the phone it has a window for an application requesting permissions and i'm not sure if that's causing the problem.

    Can anyone give me a hand with this?

    Unplug the phone from your computer and do a battery pull. You'll have to restore the data through DM, you won't be able to restore 3rd party apps. It's a glitch on upgrading to 5.0.

    You are trying to upgrade to a beta OS rather than the RIM official OS.
    To recover the OS:

    Thanks a ton for the help. I read a lot of posts about upgrading but never saw one about removing apps first. I'm up and running though, your the man!
