    I had 0 luck trying to install using the DM method, after also having tried every OTA link. I got the "not compatible" error with DM.

    I moved all of the .cod files over to the JAVA folder, then moved the .alx file to the 8330-v4.5.0.160_P3.4.0.41 folder, used AppLoader.exe and it installed perfectly.

    i have tried to follow all the instructions but in the DM it says 'upgrade' but if i click on details and into modules it lists all the .cod files but then says 'not installed'

    on my phone it says bbm 5.0

    any idea why its not installing properly?

    thanks!

    Hey! Thanks for everyone's great advice so far. I installed the new BBM 5.0 and desktop 5.0 last night. However, I was under the impression with 5.0 you could SMS and BBM all within the new BBM 5.0. The video I watched indicated you just have to go to add a new contact and type in a mobile number. I only have the option to enter a pin or email address. I was curious to see how it is for others. Any comments, feedback or advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Yes, it is possible. .81 appears to be the lowest version this works on for GSM devices.

    You can install it ota if you can find a link that works, however I must warn you many people have had bad luck after installing it ota such as the messenger completely disappearing So I would strongly suggest backing up your os on your pc before you try either method ota or dm.. I am not quite sure what ota you can use either, most of us in this thread used desktop manager

    FYI... The message below is what is now displayed when you click on the Desktop link (Zip for desktop installation) as far as I know last night when I checked the site, it was suspended. The only links now available for download are the OTA's. If someone has a link to the desktop zip file please post it for others to download. Thanks....

    Are you sure?, I'm not talking about the site your link referes to, I'm talking about the first seven links after you get to the site, i.e. the following all show Page Not Found:

    Download BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 for your BlackBerry (ZIP for desktop installation):
    Storm 9500 Series <---broken link
    Tour 9630 <---broken link
    Bold 9000 <---broken link
    Curve 8900 <---broken link
    Curve 8300 Series (OS 4.5.0.131+ ONLY) <---broken link

    Many of these sites are being asked to take them down by RIM, which would explain why the links are no longer working. I've found several so far that have updated their posts with "Links removed at the request of RIM's attorneys", "Links removed at the request of RIM", "Links removed due to legal reasons", etc..
