    Need help updating OS

    Advertisement



    I have Tmobile old version OS on my BB Pearl, anyone kind enough to walk me through, how to update to new version of OS, step by step and a link to download, I will greatly appreciate your help, don't want to mess my phone, this is my only way to get in touch with the world.
    Also I have Tmobile unlock BB Pearl, which I use with Cingular, by updating OS, I hope not to mess up settings.

    Re: Need help updating OS

    Hi sma300.
    First, here's the link (Note, AFAIK, the cingular os for the pearl is the most updated one)
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4
    Select Blackberry Pearl (8100), download.
    Before installing, remove any of the previous os (if you had any) installed on your pc.
    Install the os on your computer (please don't connect your pearl to your computer yet and make sure that desktop manager is closed)
    Do a search on your computer for vendor.xml file and delete it.
    Connect your Blackberry to your computer and open Desktop manager.
    Desktop Manager should detect that there's an updated version and will prompt you to upgrade.
    Please make sure you do a full backup.
    Voila!
    Let us know if this helps

    I have to let you know that you do that at your own risk and I wouldn't suggest a beginner user to do an OS upgrade unless it is really necessary.
    You have to let you know too that if you use another OS than the one from your provider they could refuse to help you and void the warranty if you had any problem

    Sorry doesn't mean to sound like a fun breaker
    I'm french canadian so I can also help you in french, just PM me
    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    Re: Need help updating OS

    likefre, as you mention, I should do a full backup, how I can do full backup
    another thing this phone belongs to Tmobile, since it is unlock I am using with Cingular, so if I take it to Cingular they won't help me anyway.
    Also I appreciate you taking time to explain me in detail.
    Thanks.

    Sam - you have to use desktop manager to perform a backup of your device.
    Have you installed DM on to your PC?

    Yes, DM is installed on my computor.
    Also I did search for VENDOR.xml file, is this file part of BB DM? cause properties of vendor xml indicates that this file was on my computor for long time. Just trying to make sure, so I don't mess something else on my pc.

    I'm not sure. Have you downloaded the cingular os already? And you are following the instructions on our how to page?

    My situation is the same as yours. I have a tmo device unlocked to the cingular network.

    I successfully update OS from 4.2.0.42 to 4.2.0.71 did not notice any change so far except Enterprise Activation, can anyone tell me, what is Enterprise Activation?
    Thanks to LIKEFRE for his help.

    Sam, sorry i did not reply earlier, been in meetings all day!
    Enterprise activation is used only when your blackberry is part or uses Blackberry enterprise server instead of WEb client or BIS.
    Since I think you use it on a personal level (No BES), you can go ahead and hide that application..no need to use it
