    Yes, I have installed OSs from all over the place. You have to make sure to delete the vendor file after you install it.

    Try this:

    That should do it.......I'm not near as savy as Flash. No one is.....Flash is my hero.

    Scroll back to 4 days ago and look for the name "flash" as the original author.

    I am currently using this OS and I have to say that it works quite well. If only TMO would update... Though not sure I would use theirs anyway. They lock me out of using my own ring tones and certain software. Though, I still can't use MSN Messenger or AIM... Don't anyone DARE say "Use JiveTalk..." You would think all yall werjk for BeeJive or something... ~via

    If i wanted to install this OS, all I would have to do is download it and then delete the vendor xml correct?

    New 8700 software, 4.2.1.163
    I just installed the new software on my 8700g. It seems to work fine, except for keyboard lock. In the old software I was able to unlock it with the track wheel but with this one that function is disabled and I must resort to * and send key. Does anyone have any idea if there is a way to bring that function back without reversing it to the old software?

    It has been that way for quite some time now, not sure if they will ever go back to the old way...
