    A little more info here because this doesn't make sense.
    Are you sure you d/loaded the right OS?
    After it was downloaded did you double click the resulting
    executable file to install it on your PC?

    If you did not install a lower version the worst that should
    happen is NOTHING would happen.

    Well if i put the tour OS 4.7 will my curve 8330 accept it or not
    09-28-09 01:06 AM

    Absolutely NOT!! All OSs are 100% device dependent.

    Do me a favor. Go to options > about and type verbatim
    what is on the 3rd line.

    First question: Try all you wish, IT AIN"T GONNA HAPPEN

    Second question: so I can confirm your actual OS so that we
    can try to render you help.

    Here is what I would do

    1) Close Desktop Manager (DM)
    2) In the Windows Control Panel, select Add and Remove... and
    remove BOTH Desktop Manager and any BlackBerry Device
    3) Restart PC
    4) Reinstall DM
    5) Reinstall the OS .169 that you d/loaded
    6) Start DM and go from there.

    As to the preloaded images, I have no idea. I always get rid of those.
    As to your glitches, again no clue because I can't see them happening.

    so i would do all of that for wat so i can be able to upgrade and then from wat?
    09-28-09 01:32 AM
  13. amazinglygraceless's Avatar
    So you can load the .169. Your original intent, remember.
    You have to at some point take the instructions. Playing 20
    questions will not fix your issue.

  14. cmbasurto's Avatar
    okay but i dont see how that will help but okay i will start doing it okay
    09-28-09 01:40 AM
  15. amazinglygraceless's Avatar
    One more thing. Did you download the right .169
    There is one for devices with an ESN and one for those with
    a MEID.

    To check which you have go to options > status Just note which
    it is (don't need the numbers) and make sure you chose the right OS
    09-28-09 01:45 AM
  16. cmbasurto's Avatar
    okay so yes i did and i chose the ESN and well still unstalling stuff and well okay so explain how will i upgrade it after i do the restarts and evrything
    09-28-09 01:53 AM
  17. amazinglygraceless's Avatar
    By removing all the OS currently installed on your machine and
    reinstalling only the one you d/loaded DM has only one thing to
    look at. In theory (and most of our practices) that will trigger
    an OS upgrade.
    09-28-09 02:00 AM
  18. cmbasurto's Avatar
    oh okay thanks well im almost done but it is taking forever so in the end is the upgrade worth everything
    09-28-09 02:03 AM
  19. amazinglygraceless's Avatar
    In your case I again, honestly do not know. I don't know your issues.
    But it can't hurt.

    Well i can tell u while i wait the uninstalling and well so first the symbol box when im writing takes a while to come out.

    and then the preloaded images r gone and also well idk i would love to have the precision themes from Bold and then yea can i put 4.6 on my curve or some way to get the precision theme with the folders and categories and the weather icon
    09-28-09 02:14 AM
  21. amazinglygraceless's Avatar
    Someone posted the theme you are looking for in one of your
    other threads. The preloaded image, again, I always delete so
    I can't help you there. And they take up tons of memory.

    Now you have to help me. Can you type with a modicum of
    sentence structure.
    Punctuation would be nice. Actual sentence would be better
    and real words would be a blessing. I literally have to read
    what you type at least twice. Not meant to be rude but
    it is quite annoying.

    Okay so im done with uninstalling and so now wat
    09-28-09 02:22 AM
  23. amazinglygraceless's Avatar
    You have to take this 4.6 on an 8330 thing out of your head.
    It is never EVER going to happen.
    09-28-09 02:24 AM
  24. cmbasurto's Avatar
    Okay well I am really sorry my typing isn't good enough for you and I will start to write formally okay and again I am sorry. Well now I am done okay so now what do I do. Well can you please give me the forum thread link a couple at least okay. Thank You.

    Okay so im done with uninstalling and so now wat
    Open DM, connect phone, click Application Loader in DM and then click start.
    If a dialog box comes up telling you to update prior to that cancel it.

    Did you actually read the instruction that came with the OS you d/loaded?
