    Want fast, 1-handway to unlock keyboard like with 4.1 software

    Advertisement



    I recently had to upgrade my 8700c from the 4.1 software to 4.2 after replacing handsets. In the old 4.1 software, I was able to unlock the keyboard with one hand simply by clicking the trackwheel twice. The 4.2 software doesn't seem to allow this -- it requires hitting 2 buttons, the asterisk and then the green phone button. This is cumbersome. I want to go back to unlocking the keyboard the old way, by twice clicking the track wheel.

    1. How do I do this in 4.2 -- change the keying sequence to unlock the keyboard?
    2. If that isn't possible, how can I jettison the 4.2 software and go back to to 4.1?

    RIM, we could use a software work-around on this issue. I want to be able to unlock the keyboard with one hand while not looking at the handset, which can be a little dangerous at times.

    Its fully possible with one hand, hit *, send button. If it really bothers you that much use javaloader or jl_cmdr to wipe your device. Download a 4.1 OS and install it like you did the 4.2.

    Another option is to activate your password and set it up so you can type it with one hand quickly. Using the password option on my phone I never see the unlock/lock screen since it requires a password to get into the phone.

    Thank you for your help.

    How do I obtain javaloader or jl>cmdr to wipe my device? Do I download it to my laptpop and wipe the BB via USB connection?

    Is the 4.2 and 4.1 we are talking about "service books" or is there a distinction. Currently I have the 4.2 in by bb, and I think two different versions of Desktop Manager on my laptop. And I have a large bb exe. file as well called 8700M_PBr4.2.1_rel155_PL2.3.0.79_A4.2.1.96_ATT.exe . Thus, I have a lot of bb software and I'm not sure what each class of software is which. So, I think I would like to jettison all and start over with the latest version of 4.1. Thank you.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I simply use a 4 char password and you can start typingthe password without rolling on the wheel and it will unlock. For example my pass is 4 p's then enter and unlocks with one hand.

    To check what version Os your running on the bb hit alt+cap+h. Also Desktop manager software and OS are different so don't get them mixed up as most think the 4.2DM is the same as the bb OS

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you guys are all lucky. I'm on the BES server, my phone I don't have an option when it comes to locking. The only choice I have is the time 2 - 15 min, other wise after it loks its an 8 digit alpha numeric code! Its fun when u have few to many drinks
