    I followed your directions and don't see a .cod file all I'm given is a 83XX.jad file...which doesn't seem to be compatible with my device.
    .jad files are for OTA downloads only. You need to go here - Want the new BBM on your Storm? Here it is!! - BlackberryOS.com - and download the .zip files to load this through DM.

    You have downloaded the ota to your computer you need the .alx and .cod files not the .jad.. they should be in a zip folder..

    Here is a link to a website hosting the zip folders..

    Go to The BlackBerry Zone for the OTA link. Make sure you select the proper one. Also, know that there is a higher chance of completely losing BBM and all of your contacts this way if the download fails.

    Do a back-up of your device before you attempt the download. If the download does fail, you will lose all of your contacts.

    Are you on T-Mobile? You can go to T-Mobile BB Upgrade to download 4.5.081. On the page you will select your device, another page will pop up and you enter your phone number. The download page will come up - look for the OS version name and download. Once it is finished downloading, you want to open the file and run the installer.

    *PROBLEM*
    Now when I connect to my PC via USB the PC doesn't recognize it. The charging indicator shows up really quick on the BB then it goes away. And I've tried 3 different USB cords.

    You may need to reinstall the drivers. Do you have a USB port other than the one you normally use on your PC that you can plug it into? If you do, plug the cable into one of those.

    I'm not near my PC right now, so I can't explain exactly how to uninstall and reinstall them at the moment, but I will be able to a little later.

    It sounds like you have the old BBM back already. If you are able to access the app and add new contacts, then you have it install on your phone.

    But, if not... First of all, did you do a backup of your phone before installing BBM 5.0? If you didn't, or do not have a recent backup, you will not be able to restore your contacts. You may want to backup any contacts that you have added since reinstalling the old BBM (again, ).

    Go to Options > Advanced Options > Applications and delete the current version of BBM. Go to this link - http://yourcbcfamily.org/bb/curvebbm/ -for the old Blackberry Messenger OTA download.

    After you download this, connect the phone to your PC, run Desktop Manager and restore your most recent backup. It should restore your contacts.

    Ok. You're welcome. Good to hear you got it working! Sorry it took a bit to get to the PC. I was out at the moment and didn't want to attempt explaining how to do it from memory and mess up somewhere.

    1st i installed this OTA with .160 and had a lot of problems as far as getting the D or R beside the messages. I downgraded to .138 and it did ok for a few hours then the same thing started all over. So i went back to the old BBM and vowed id wait it out for the official realease. Then i tried on last time using the method at the start of this thred. I must say i have had ZERO problems using this method!! Thanks Emily!!
