    Question Hmm... I think i need some OS help

    Advertisement



    Hey, i have a cingular 8100, it came with os 4.2.6(something) and i upgraded to cingular 4.2.71, it took me forever to find... I downloaded it because for some reason the links on the telefonica spain thing thats been all over the stacks weren't working.

    upgrading to .71 was a piece of cake... however recently the telefonica spain links worked and downloaded what i thought was the latest os.

    I installed it on my computer, deleted the Vender XML file, and tried loading it with the DM just as i had os .71 but it doesnt work, the DM acts like my phone already has the software on it... i cant figure out how to get the DM to try to load the new os and not the old os that i previously downloaded.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.
    thank you

    from what I have seen .71 is the highest.
    the only diff is the vendor name claiming it

    Re: Hmm... I think i need some OS help

    telefonica spain is https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...84431AD9D055AF

    and cingular is
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

    i was wondering if they might have been the same file... but i thought i saw people talking about how the new os was dramatically faster then the old one and significantly lowered battery drain, but when i put it on my phone i didnt really notice a difference, it might actually be a little slower now.
    thanks again for the help

    Re: Hmm... I think i need some OS help

    ok side by side they are diff telef. is .67 and cingy is .71 the only way to do it is to delete the vendor file like you did make sure thats gone and you should be ok
    my opinion is to wait a few more upgrades
    small changes may not be there.
    the biggest effect on batt draw is closing apps correctly. not hitting end button, this keeps them runnin in the background.
    also to keep things runnin smooth do a batt pull about once a week
    phone on batt out 30 sec then back in
    let me know

    awesome, i knew about closing all of the apps and everything, im usually pretty good about it, and battery life isnt really a problem for me anyway,

    haha, even if i am stranded somewhere with a dying pearl, i dont think it would be too hard to track down someone with a charger, only like half of the population of the world have razrs...

    i just thougt it would be cool to have the newest everything
    thanks alot,

    like I said I usually wait a few upgrades to see what the MAJOR benefits are
    just wait and see if another one comes around soon! they usually do!
