    Re: New!! 4.2 Vodafone Germany for the 8700

    I downloaded 4.2 from the vodafone link, but when I install the program on my computer I don't see any file been installed. Is there something I am doing wrong?
    Actually, I already had 4.2.1.66 downloaded earlier, can I update it to 4.2.1.94?
    or I have to unistall 4.2.1.66?
    thanks

    Re: New!! 4.2 Vodafone Germany for the 8700

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I d/l german 4.2 onto my two 8700g's using my old one as a test. Here are my initial findings.The one made in Hungary - did not lose ability to connect to desktop via bluetooth. The other made in Mexico did. All apps opera mini inc work fine. Sound was quieter - moved it to loud - is now same as before.


    The only major gripe is that the on/off button doesn't initalize on the Mexian bb. It works fine on the Hungarian.
    So the only way to restart is battery pull each time. I may reinstall after going back to a clean factory reset to see if this is just a courrupt install on 4.2.

    Finally I d/l the bb insight icon theme by importing alx and cod files from elsewhere and these are orig for a 7100, so they are a bit small for the 8700 screen. If there isn't a quick way to resize, I will install the 4.1 original o/s on another pc and copy these files to get the correct theme screen size back.

    Any comments??

    One is manufactured in Hungary and one in Mexico. But they are both 8700g's. Locked to T-mobile for the UK market.

    1. Download 4.2 ( I recommend this Vodafone from Germany http://support.vodafone.de/spopup47.html ) to your computer.

    2. Uninstall your current handheld software by going to control panel, add/remove program, look for blackberry handheld software and unistall it. Do not remove the Blackberry Desktop Manager.


    3. Back up your device by plugging in your blackberry to your computer using a USB port, open up Desktop Manager, select back up and restore then back up.

    4. Close desktop manager.

    5. Install the 4.2 OS that you have downloaded.

    6. Go to my computer, Drive C, Program Files, Common Files, Research in Motion, App Loader, then DELETE the VENDOR FILE.

    5. Plug your device back in and open up Desktop Manager, there should be a pop up asking you if you want to upgrade.

    7. Enjoy!

    Hope this helps!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~apart from the fact that I can now send pics with me emails, I see no other upgrades. Am I missing something?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Ok I installed this version on my 8700G and have a few problems.
    1. There is now a regular clicking noise coming from the speaker. Anyone else notice this problem or know how to fix it. It is very quiet but it seems to be running the battery down much faster.
    2. It is telling me I need to do Enterprise Activation again. This isn't remembered in the backup data?
    3. I have the Vodafone themes installed but it won't give me the option to activate them.
