    8100 to 8110 switch question

    Advertisement



    i want to upgrade my 8100 to an 8110. i want to switch over all my files, music, pix, settings, themes, games, apps...im talkin about everything over to the 8110...i know that theres a app or program that lets you copy everything on your SD card to your PC (i learned about this becuz i wanted to put all my media and apps to a bigger SD card)

    i want to know, will my programs and settings and apps get messed up since its going from an 8100 to 8110...does it make a differece and is this even possible?

    3rd party apps will not x-fer unless backed-up on DT. Everything on device will x-fer smooth.

    i hurd about this app; Aerize Card Loader

    i understand that if i purchase this program, i could then copy everything that is in my SD card to my desktop, which would then be able to transfer to a bigger SD card or new phone...

    are you familiar with this program?

    Yep! I have it on my Curve. The only thing is, because it is a 3rd party OTA, it will not x-fer from card. You will have to re-install app. via ota or DT. I did mine ota and left the folder on my sd card. It had no problem recognizing the folder.

    A 3rd party app is any app not designed specific by RIM/BB. The card reader is a 3rd party app designed by an outside source. The card loader program only backs-up 3rd party software to the card, not the desk top. But when you transfer, the card loader program will not transfer w/ the other software simply because it is also a 3rd party app. you will need to save any 3rd party apps to your desk top via this forum:

    Unless you have 20 apps on your phone or it is too much of a pain to find them again, I would recommend just using the Desktop Manager to migrate your data/settings and then re-install the apps. If you can find the cod files you can use DM to reinstall them all very quickly too.
