    Re: Is red pearl firmware ok to put on black pearl??

    I found 4 different OS downloads, 2 from TIM Italy and 2 from Cingular. I will put the important details in bold print.

    AT&T (formerly Cingular)

    1) Software For BlackBerry Pearl (Red 8100c)

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.0.89 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.2.0.89
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.2.0.73
    * Software Platform: 2.2.0.41

    2) Software For BlackBerry Pearl (Maine Slate 8100c)

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.0.88 (Multilang)

    Package Version: 4.2.0.88
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.2.0.71
    * Software Platform: 2.2.0.41


    TIM Italy

    3) Software For BlackBerry Pearl 8100 Smartphone

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.102 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.2.1.102
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.2.1.66
    * Software Platform: 2.3.0.57

    4) BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.0.75 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.2.0.75
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.2.0.64
    * Software Platform: 2.2.0.37




    All the bolded Application Versions and Software Platforms I made bold are the current OS's for the 8100 Series for those 2 carriers. The top 2 updates are for Cingular devices (Red Pearl and Maine Slate 8100's) and the bottom 2 are for TIM Italy. Only the first TIM Italy OS is the current OS out right now.

    What is the difference between this update and the Black Cingular 4.2.0.88/4.2.0.71 update? I am running the later one and have no problems or issues with it.

    The following upgrade is what everyone is using:

    3) Software For BlackBerry Pearl 8100 Smartphone

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.102 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.2.1.102
    Consisting of:

    * Applications: 4.2.1.66
    * Software Platform: 2.3.0.57

    The Cingular upgrades are not really upgrades.

    Wow, I am confused. What is the difference between the red update and the latest main slate update.

    Nothing. They are just OS upgrades for the Pearls that Cingular has.
