    Hi guys! I just tried updating to the new .114 (my first time) and I ended up with some sort of a fatal error. I unplugged and pulled the battery and I appear to be working just fine. Here's what I did:
    -Downloaded the .exe.
    -Ran/installed the .exe on my computer.
    -Disabled Internet.
    -Opened Device Manager
    -Clicked Application Loader, and Start under Update Software.
    -Let it run for a few minutes.
    -Got a fatal error.

    What did I do wrong? Thanks!

    EDIT: And, of course, I backed up everything beforehand.

    I upgraded to .109. So far so good. Although with the original OS pushing the left convenience button brought up call logs. Now I can't find call logs anywhere, this button just opens the phone app. Any suggestions?

    hey when I update it only says 4.7 ..... in the update manager;... (updating Storm to 1.09 from .85).. I don't see anything about 109 for some reason... really wierd. Last time I had it loaded before I ran the update I saw where it gave me an option of .65 and .75

    I'm a newb so please bear with me on what I'm sure are stupid questions:

    1) Where do I find leaked OS's? Bittorrent or is there a reliable site around?

    2) What is the most stable, most advanced of the leaked OS's? I have read that .114 is giving quite a few people trouble. So what build was best for people?

    Thanks!

    I'm having an issue upgrading and was hoping for a bit of help.

    I originally upgraded to a .113/.114 hybrid with no issues in the process. However, I had a few problems with the OS and decided to jump back down to .75...after which I realized why I grabbed a leaked OS in the first place and am trying to upgrade again to bbcrackman's hybrid. But...every time I try the DM tells me no upgrades are needed.

    I have properly installed the exe files (verified that they are in the proper directory on my C drive), am turning of my internet connection when attempting to upgrade, and to be certain there is nothing corrupt I have deleted both the DM and the OS files and reinstalled (twice now). No go though...it's still telling me that no updates are needed.

    I've noticed a few others have had similar issues, but I haven't been able to find a fix through searching. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    After updating each new iteration of the OS as it's been leaked -- finding some excellent, others terrible -- I finally stopped at .99, which has been stable, with great battery life and relatively good memory management. I know every Storm has its unique idiosyncrasies, but is there a consensus, or even a warm feeling, on whether one of the subsequent leaks clearly out-performed .99?

    Did you try turning off DM and loading through app loader?

    I can say I have tried every new OS and Hybird and .114 Hybrid on Blackberry OS is by far the best of any.

    I did try the app loader with no luck. Not sure how to turn the DM off though...

    Just beginning to update to 109 and everything is chugging along nicely until I access AppLoader, click on 109 version and then DM says in Update Summary...

    "No software update is required for your device"

    First time loading an os onto my phone, so that cannot be right. The phone is showing a connection to the computer. What gives with the message? Is it important?

    I too am curious. I see all this info on "new" OS's and all the hoopla about warranties and such. Are there any "legal" OS upgrades I can do on this storm ... running the generic .75 that came with it.

    Is it normal for the device to shut off during the update? DM is saying connecting to device, the bar is moving but my phone has been off for a good 3-5 minutes now..

    It's my first update so not really sure how it follows through. Updating to .133 on my Telus Storm. Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    Walk away from your phone....Come back later and you will have a new OS.

    Alright thanks for the tip, just wasnt sure if it seeming to be off was a bad thing.

    Cheers.
