  1. if you are a RIM partner running beta firmware on your blackberries, then you are pretty much out of luck. Patch Manager will be loaded without problem, but it will get 0x8e error logged on the handheld and 404 error logged in MDS log on the BES as well as from the blackberry browser if you try it manually. More details can be found here.
