    8130 Help! Software/Themes?

    Advertisement



    Does all the software that works on the 8100 pearl work with the 8130 pearl?? I had the 8100 and loved it. I loaded a bunch of stuff. I'm looking for software/themes for my 8130 and cant' find any. The desktop manager doesn't even recognize my 8100 software to load on my 8130. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: 8130 Help! Software/Themes?

    No, not all but some will work. Example, I am currently using Telenav 5 for the 8100 since there is no version for the 8130 yet. That works but other software does not. It is pretty much hit or miss with what works right now since the 4.3 for the 8100 is not out. Currently, the 8130 and 8120 are running the 4.3 OS and the 8100 is only at 4.2. Until there is more demand and the vendors get the code written we are kind of limited on what we have for options.

    brutus, make sure that you have the 8130 device OS on your PC to load the themes and apps. that may be why it seems nothing is working. are you getting an error stating "no additional apps for your device found"?

    if so, then download AND install the 8130 OS on your PC and then run application loader. the themes and apps should install.

    ^^She is right, I did what she said and most 8100 apps work on my 8130. Hit me up if you need help.
    This is my Blackberry. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me my Blackberry is useless. Without my Blackberry I am useless.

    i'm having the same exact problems, but i don't understand the download and install 8130 os that cherrichiodo mentioned. i installed the blackberry desktop manager program that was available on the cd that came with my 8130 and thats it.

    the OS will be located on your respective carrier website (sprint or verizon) NOT on the disk that was included (i know, not sure why RIM did this, but has been an issue on all the new devices)

    so you will need to download the OS from your carrier, install it on your PC (NOT just download) and then run application loader.

    I don't recommend downloading the DM (Desktop Manager) that came on the CD with your BB, uninstall that and install this instead - version 4.3:
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22
    Then for your 8130 OS go here:

    where you live doesn't really mean anything

    your device is an 8130 right? the OS links provided will work for your blackberry...or you can choose to try your carrier site and they may have an OS update for you...

    who is your carrier?

    here's a link to the sprint OS
