    I've just donwloaded the laterst version of BBM (10.8.5.15). I wished I didn't....

    Instead of the previous version, there are now two seperate icons for BBM Video and BBM Voice. In the previous version, there was only one icon, which was green if your contact had wifi and/or was able to BBMV and greyed if your contact is unable to BBMV. So, one can always see a green icon: available for BBMV, greyed out: unavailable. Very, very annoying!!

    I'm so dissatisfied of this version because of the above, I want to roll back to it's previous version. Is there any way to do this?

    BlackBerry lost his mind since the last OS updates and BBM... they're screwing us. Everything what was working fine (e.g. calendar with "growing" digits), is now gone... For now I will not update anymore, until I'm really convinced about the correct working of it.

    Thank you!

    Growing calendar digits is already back in the latest OS beta/leak.
    The always green icons in BBM are already a very hot topic in the beta zone forums, and so I hope they will correct that soon. I cannot think of any meaning this change might have, it can only be a bug.

    Thank you! I wonder if one at BlackBerry is testing extensively the new versions... I think they don't...

    I think we the user base are their beta testers. Listen Blackberry, Apple does NOT make these kind of mistakes. Please hire a software manager.

    No, because I'm unkown to it. Can you please explain how to do that? Or provide me a URL to a manual and the BBM bar?

    ok, so you'll need a program called sachesi to install the file, download link, and thread about the program here:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-le...taller-825409/

    this is the bar file from 10.3.1.2708 (this was the last OS I had on my Q10 before upgrading):
    https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resi...int=file%2cbar

    Open up sachesi with your phone plugged in, you'll probably be prompted to put in your password for you phone so do that, then click the install tab.

    near the top there is a box thats either checked or unchecked saying install only new apps or something along those lines, make sure its unchecked since your phone has a new version of BBM then the one you want to install.

    Drag the BBM bar file you downloaded into the sachesi window, and it should install the file over the old one. Do a reboot on your phone, and you should be good to go. As far as I know, you may be the first person to attempt downgrading... worst case, you end up with the same bbm bar file as you have now.

    let us know how it goes!

    Yeah, it's funny how quickly they push an update when it messages with their channels but if it's something that disturbs the core functionality of their program...months if ever.

    I really don"t know... with every update, the more and more things are getting worse, even if there were perfect working before....

    @FCSC: You made my day! I managed to downgrade BBM! I've got my good old BBMV icon back, which changes colour again!

    In AppWorld on my device it still says BBM version 10.8.5.15, but Sachesi says now version 10.7.5.30. But, I'm happy now and for now, it's seems to be working fine in the, so loved, old fashioned way! Thanks again!
