    UK version KILLED my battery...if the battery drains completely can it be recovered????

    I was able to wipe it clean but know since the battery is dead and the wall charger nor the pc usb will charge it, only my car charger charged it, will I be able to put the OS back on?

    I'm so pissed right now!!!

    New Bold user here. I picked up my first BB last week and have been tinkering non stop since.

    Been running beta .266 for the past 3 days, and I must say its a massive improvement over the stock .162 that comes loaded with Rogers. Battery life is improved drastically (althought I don't have experience with other versions). Phone seems to run a bit faster and mem stays hovering around 45mb, whereas, on .162 I'd drop all the way down to 20 - 25mb midway through the day. Beta .266 has been good to me, its been running smooth and fast.

    I don't recall leaving it plugged up for a long period of time...I noticed with the upgrade that my phone was getting hot while charging and was acting funny..I really do think it's the OS since others are experiencing the same thing with this OS.

    Did you have any more problems with your battery?

    now it won't even charge in the car...going to warranty center to get new battery

    UPDATE: IT'S ALIVE!!!!! New battery installed east-asia .266........now lets see if the battery goes down.....

    UPDATE: Well new battery, looks like same result. I'm downgrading to the new AT&T OS and see if that works...if same result then I know it's the USB port that is the problem..

    No, an update will not lock your phone. Make sure to delete vendor file. You'll be fine.

    I have a officially unlocked Bold

    i did all the things in the beginners list but cant upgrade it.

    using vista

    and DM 4.6


    Basic Procedure (Beginners)
    Backup Phone in DesktopManager.
    Unplug phone and close DM.
    Install new OS .exe file.
    Plug phone back into PC and let drivers install.
    Launch DM and proceed with update of OS.
    Make sure you pick Backup Data and Apps (including Messages) during the backup!!!
    DO NOT under any circumstance unplug the phone or use the PC while the update is in progress. Do not let screen saver kick in either.
    Unplug and use phone ONLY once the upgrade procedure states that it's finished by the DM update software on the screen.

    I upgraded from .247 to this one today. Right after the upgrade, I had no data connection. Calls go through fine, but no data. Suddenly data started working for a while, then stopped again. It has been sporadic. I resent the service books, reregistered, restarted the phone. Unless the upgrade somehow went bad, I don't understand what the deal is. .247 was working fine.

    I'm going to give it a little more time, but I may have to downgrade.

    I installed it last night and my BIS connection wasn't worknig. It's weird because I could browse the internet on my phone normally but 3rd party apps such as Google Maps and Viigo wouldn't work.

    I did some searching and resent my service book and now data connection is good

    I used the O2-UK OS for my Bold, works well as compared to my previous OS. Application memory around 35MB, better than before but no where near others 50MB free. Although I'm having problem re-installing my backed up 3rd party apps.

    I'm having trouble loading this os. I install the file on my computer, then i delete the vendor file, then i plug in my bb and then double click the loader file. After I click next and all that it tells me that there is no device software in desktop manager for the device I have connected. Ive installed new o/s's before and never had this issue. Help please.

    I don't understand. Why are some getting better memory stability than others.

    After a battery pull, I have 100 mbs free. After half an hour of twitter, bloomburg, mccleans, its down to 0.

    Do I need to do something different to stablize the memory?
