    Going back in time

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone, after playing around with my pearl for the last few days, I want to go back to the "out of the box". I did perform a wipe, but this didn't do what I wanted. I went back to empty addresses etc, but added programs where still installed etc.

    I upgraded the firmware from .61 to .79(?) but also this I wanna reverse. No clue how to do that...

    Any help available??

    Okay, in order to downgrade your OS this is what you need to do:

    Find the OS that you are wanting to downgrade to.

    Download it to your computer.

    Run the .exe file and install the OS onto your computer.

    Do a search for vendor.xml and delete it.

    Or go Start/My Computer/C: Drive/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/App Loader and it should be down in the bottom there.

    Now connect your device to the USB.

    Start Desktop Manager.

    Go to Add Applications.

    A box will pop up giving you the option of downgrading or keeping the same OS.

    Click the downgraded OS and you are on your way.

    And when you do the OS downgrade, make sure you select delete all applications, and don't select Reinstall them, Also don't select the back up and restore during the install. This will return your BB to "out of the Box" configuration.

    hope this helps
