    Downgrade 8703e from 4.2 to 4.1

    Advertisement



    I recently installed the 4.2 OS and do not like it, due to several reasons:

    Lower volume ring tones
    More steps to unlock the handheld
    text sizes
    slower OS

    I've searched high and low and cannot find a place to download the 4.1 OS for my Verizon 8703e.

    Anyone have a link I can download this from and also some instructions on how to downgrade?

    I am not using a BES.


    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for your reply.

    What option did you select from the drop down menu to get to that page? That link takes me to a page where I must choose a selection. Also, does it matter that my BB is Verizon and then link you sent me is AT&T?

    "BlackBerry 8703e(TM)"

    No it does not matter what carrier OS you use. Follow the directions in this thread even though the BB type is different the steps are the same. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._to_4_1_a.html
