RIM has had issues with their release dates in the past. The update 3.6 upgrade from 3.5 was 1/2 year late. 4.0 was a year later. 4.1 was almost a year late. 5.0 was delayed for awhile as well About a month ago CB was told they were aiming for September.
The upgrade for Microsoft Exchange is 637.3MB If you don’t stay current with service packs and maintenance releases you can go ahead and jump to the latest release if you desire. If you’re have 5.0.0 running and did not download and install SP1 you can upgrade to SP2.
Here are the sizes of the install files for the SP1:
- SP1 – 657MB
- SP1 MR1 – 24.3 MB
- SP1 MR2 – 595 MB
- SP1 MR3 – 595 MB
If I installed SP1 and SP1 MR3 that would be 1.25 GB of install files plus the 637.3 MB for SP2. And If I went from 5.0.0 straight into SP2 it would only be 637.3 MB. This really does not make any sense to us over here at NerdBerry. What really happened to all of the programming code in SP1?
