BB 9550 Program upgrade

Verizon has a program upgrade for my storm 2. If I do the software upgrade, do I have to reload or reregister all the paid for apps I've purchased?

Yes you will, sorry. 

 

About the new OS, it leaked out awhile back. It has a few bugs. One main complaint is that bedside mode will not work if phone is plugged into a wall outlet but will work if plugged into your PC.  There are a few others such as popping noises in audio,lines in media player while playing music, and problems with open GL while gaming.

 

I suggest if you want this newest wait until a hybrid comes out for it that will correct some of the issues.  You can find information on what I have written here over at crackberry.com in the Storm 2 section.

 

Yes you would think that the Verizon testers would find these problems before a release but they don't. In my opinion they really don't care about BlackBerry users any longer thus the big push for Android devices.

Before you load the OS you should backup your BB with DM & backup your 3rd party apps with BBSAK or DMCP. After loading the OS restore your BB with DM & then you can use DM to restore your 3rd party apps.

Hey Soccer Ref,

 

 

What are those back up utilities you are referring to?

BBSAK=BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife
DMCP=Desktop Master Control Program

Bbsak is simple & easy to use. Just Google BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife & you should find it. I know you can download it at BBTweaks.com
