    Please try the following:

    1) Download .297 to the AppLoader directory on your PC.
    2) Double-click on the application file to install it.
    3) Once the installation is complete, connect your Bold to Desktop Manager via USB cable.
    4) Notification that system update is available appears.
    5) Follow the screen prompts.
    6) Let the process complete itself even if it appears to be taking a long time.
    7) Send yourself a test email.
    8) Reset any settings that have reverted to the default factory settings.
    9) Re-register any apps requiring licenses.
    10) Test other apps to make sure that they are working
    11) Reset any app settings that have reverted to default.
    12) Do a QP and you should fine assuming you started with OS .167

    Desktop is a more thorough install. OTA is just a patch over 167.

    I updated mine with the OTA option and everything seems to be working perfectly. Battery life seems good although i do keep it on 2G and memory leak seems to be no worse than an of the previous OS i have used.

    It's listed as a patch right on Blackberry's site.

    Seems reasonable as it won't give you the OTA option if you are not running 167. Took a while for me to realize that. Finaly loaded 9000/ from DM.
