    I have a Blackberry 8320 and I only have an e-mail plan. (My BBM and e-mail works).

    Is there a way to download BBM5 to my computer and use Desktop Manager to install BBM 5 to my Blackberry?

    Hi - I tried using the desktop manager to install BBM 5.0 on my 8830. The process says it was successful, but even after restarting my bb, the bbm hasn't been upgraded. Any advice?

    Thanks!

    Sorry - I just got my bb this week. When you say "app loader" isn't that in desktop manager?

    I tried to remove bbm 4.5 and then reinstall 5.0...now i don't have either.

    Help?

    so...i reinstalled my OS (4.5) and was able to get my old bbm back....

    i'd still like to get the new 5.0 bbm on it tho...it's weird cuz i downloaded the files in this thread and was able to install through desktop manager - app loader (so it says)...bbm 5.0 is there on the list to be selected and after install it says it's on there and i do have the option to even remove it.

    i'm scratching my head

    follow the instructions i posted here
    bbm 5 instructions

    but use the files he posted

    I tried the instructions twice and both times it just wipes bbm from the bb. Your instructions say that the OS has to be
    "1. If you are using a device that has O.S. 4.5 or lower ensure that you are running 4.5.0.131 or higher. "

    I am currently on 8830AMEA_PBr4.5.0_rel177_PL3.4.0.20_A4.5.0.127_Bel l_Mobility

    This is the latest update available for Bell. Do I need to install a hybrid OS that I see mentioned very frequently on forums? If so, it mainly seems like it is for US carriers - will it still work for Bell?

    I appreciate the help.

    you dont have to use ur carrier branded one.
    here

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E607FE7CC0E1A0

    pick that. remember to delete the vendor.xml file in the apploader folder.

    if u are still having trouble i dont mind doing it for u via remote assistance. i have done it for about 20-25 friends (females they generally dont care to learn this stuff. no offense to those that do)

    if u do want to do it this way
    TeamViewer - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

    download that and pm me and ill be happy to help

    I don't know how i did it...but i managed to get bbm 5.0...

    I downloaded and installed the latest telus OS for 8830 from the link onto my PC, but wasn't able to upgrade the bb (vendor xml file was removed). Nothing appeared for me to select to upgrade.

    Under apploader there were two folders for 8830 (one for bell and one for telus OS), I removed the bell folder and then was able to upgrade. Magically, bbm 5.0 appeared.

    Afterwards both 4.5 and 5.0 of bbm were on the bb, so I tried removing 4.5 because I thought I didn't need it anymore anyways, but by doing so it takes away the bbm icon but desktop manager says bbm 5.0 is still on it. I redid what I did and was able to get it back - so I have both versions on the bb.

    Thanks for all your help - greatly appreciated!
