    How do I get my old Os back on my Pearl?

    Advertisement



    I upgraded to the new 4.5 Os and found that a few things do not work such as camera, no facebook logo, and so on! So I tried to restore my back up that I made before I did the upgrade and now when I connect the usb cable it won't recognize my phone? Any suggestions?

    To downgrade delete 4.5 os off your computer, then open up device manager. It should ask you if you want to downgrade your os back to the other os on your computer. If it won't recognize your phone, then try taking the battery out and while it's out it should recognize it.

    Once you delete 4.5 open up the device manager. It should ask you if you want to downgrade if you still have your old os on your computer. If it doesn't you'll have to use jl_cmder to wipe your handheld then install your old os on through device manager

    You first need to reinstall the older OS back onto your PC. You probably had to uninstall it before doing the 4.5 upgrade. Reinstall that and run DM and it will prompt to downgrade.

    Double click app loader to try and force dm to recognize.
