    Question OTA DST patch/DM behavior?

    Advertisement



    I installed the DST patch OTA last week and all was A-ok.

    Options... 2007 DST Patch... showed as "...applied".
    Pressing the menu (bby) key showed 2 choices: Select and Close.

    The other day I installed PicoNews via DM (latest version; 4.2.1.8) and the screen after the app/module listing stated:
    Unrecognized modules that will be removed:
    net_rim_bb_timezoneupdater
    No choice to override it, so I let it do as it pleased. Once the Pearl restarted, I checked the patch.

    Options... 2007 DST Patch... now showed as "...is not available. Please try again later by selecting 'Download Patch' from the menu.".
    Pressing the menu (bby) key listed the additional option: "Download Patch" so I did that and the patch is once again installed.

    Can anyone confirm similar behavior for an OTA installed patch? How about for anyone who installed via USB?

    Correct me if I am wrong, 4.2 OP Sys dont need the patch and the Pearl is 4.2.

    4.2 doesn't need it? Can you point me to a reference? Seems likes lots of folks are installing it...

    The Pearl runs 4.2 and t-mobile sent out the patch via free sms link. the BB homepage also made no mention of it not being required.

    Got the same SMS and that's why I installed. If there's an official reference to 4.2 not needing the patch, I'll uninstall. I just haven't seen it yet.

    My bad memory, it is 4.2.1 and later that does not require the patch

    Thanks for the link. I guess I'm back to my original observations and question...
