    I can say that the battery's life has improved after upgrading to .592 and also the free memory

    I would recommend the upgrade your BB will look better and perform faster

    Any help required, I will be more than happy to answer >> upgraded 6 curves and all are working perfectly


    Guide:

    After downloading the .exe file . . install it on your PC


    Now follow this Guide

    1. Delete the Vendor.xml file if it's not your Carrier's Release , go to -> (C:, program files, Common files, Research in motion, app loader, Delete the Vendor.xml file)
    2.Preferably using the new DM ( Desktop Manager ) Backup your BB.. link -> BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop Software - BlackBerry Software at BlackBerry.com
    3.Connect your BB and Backup its memory ( from now on disconnect your PC from the Internet and disable data on phone)
    4.Close the DM
    5.Download and install in your PC an application called CrackMem
    6.Run CrackMem and then choose the OS you've installed earlier
    7. Click on Wipe Device . . it will ask you to write BrickMyPhone -> write it
    8. Follow the installation instructions afterwards and you'll be Fine
    9. After that you might need to update your BBM and you might need to delete your wi-fi and set it up again

    WARNING: Do this at your own risk. I am not responsible for any problems that may occur as a result of following this guide. Your 3rd party applications might be removed after the OS installation.

    >> Some would prefer the use of the Loader.exe for the installation part ( which is located in the same file as the Vendor.xtml ) But I know some who had problems afterwards. So DO Use the CrackMem application and you'll be fine

    Take Care and Enjoy your new OS

    CrackMem download link can be found in my signature.

    Best of Luck

    Edit:
    Using CrackMem > Download and installl it on your PC and then run it. On its main window, select the OS which you've installed and want to upgrade to. Then, click on wipe device and write '' BrickMyPhone ''.
