    hey guys, i have been lurking for a while now and usually i can just find answers to my questions by searching the forums, but this one i haven't seen up yet.

    i have the bold right now and when i tryed to upgrade to the latest rogers OS specifically for the bold and during desktop manager it says, this upate is not for this specific device

    i tryed the beta OS as well, and that hasnt worked either, i'm pretty sure im holding a bold in my hand right now

    now if i do a complete whipe with JL_cmder and try to do the os, will it say the same?

    any suggestions? thanks guys!

    Blackberry 9000 is a Bold. Either you have a Bold or you don't. Your profile here on the forums shows an 8800.

    have you tried JL_CMDR ?

    It could prove fatal though. Well, to the Bold if you screw it up.

    thats what i was going to try out, but i have no way of backing up the ACTUAL OS that i have currently on right now, because if i wipe it out and i get the same message that i got earlier of the software not being system specific then im stuck with the 507 error. is there a way to bypass that error message or bypass DM and force install it?

    so i went through that forum and i tryed everything, wiping handheld and doing the command line loader /nojvm but still the same thing, has anyone had any experince with a pre-release bold and what os can be installed from? i think i might have to get one specific from RIM?
