    sorry to bare bad news but there is no 5.0 that works for the 8330m. This includes Hybrids. No 5.0 love for you. Roll back to a 4.0 OS

    Uninstall the 5.0 install for your desktop manager software and re-install the 4.5 version you want. If you then plug your bb in and load desktop manager it should prompt you to install the OS. If it doesn't, go into applications loader screen and install from there.

    Once you have done this, use the backup you hopefully took before the install to restore your data.

    I'm not too familiar with macs, but feel free to pin me if you need any further help, I'll do what I can. My pin is pin:302F728B.

    Not sure if this applies to the mac version of DM, but try it without a live connection to the internet, after you've downloaded and installed the OS to your computer.

    i don't know how I can uninstall the 5.0 OS. The device just has a screen with the 507 error on it. Then, when I connect it to the computer it comes up with an option to upgrade to 4.5.0.175, and it jsut fails near the end. Does any one have the hybrid folder for the 8330m (just the folder not exe)?

    You're not uninstalling it from the phone; you need to uninstall it from your computer, so that the DM doesn't see it anymore.

    After uninstalling 5.0, reinstall the 4.5 OS to your computer, then load it to your phone.
