    operating system?

    Advertisement



    I have a quick question, I have a sprint 8330 and i was wondering if there is anyway at all to download another carriers os(because theres a new one for vzw) and install it to my 8330 by deleting the vendor.xml file? I know you can do that with the GSM versions, but I was a little unsure about CDMA.

    Yes it works for CDMA as well, Both US Cellular and Verizon have OS 4.5 available for the 8330 just remember to delete the Vendor.xml like you mentioned.. also make sure that you delete any older versions of the operating system from your computer as well.

    You can find it here if you don't have a Verizon account just enter 000-000-0000 when asked for a # or just download from another carrier.

    c/program files/comman file/ research in motion/app loader should be the last file in folder.
