    Have a curve that I recently upgraded to .160. It is not working as expected and I would like to downgrade. 3 Questions.

    1. What OS should I download?
    2. Where do I find said OS?
    3. What is the best way to go about this?

    Thanks in advance....

    do a search (either here or google) for 4.5.0.77. then install is the same way you did .160. However, I must warn you, .77 stinks

    I have heard .131 is the most stable version for VZW 8330s. Any thoughts?

    .131 is the most stable. Although in the hybrid os forum there is a hybrid that consists of 160, 4.6 files and 5.0 files. That is what I am running and its great.

    It is the 8330m .160/.138/5.0 hybrid. But you could just substitute .160 with .131 if you want.

    Other than a hybrid .131 is definitely the most stable OS for a VZW 8330.

    Remove any OS's from your PC and install .131 then downgrade the same as you would upgrade via DM or loader.exe.

    Loader.exe can be found by navigating to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and double click the loader.exe (folder with a cellphone on it) file to launch the application loader.

    Don't forget to delete the vendor.xml file

    How do I remove an old OS from my pc?

    Are there folders and files I need to delete inside the RIM folder?

    I was in the same boat as you. 160 is not stable at all, its soo SLOOWWWWWW lol. I went with .131 and I love it. Its much more stable, and I think its also faster than .77.

    Wow... I swear I'm not that dumb. I didn't think it was actually installing a program.

    Thanks
