    roll back OS

    Advertisement



    Got my hand on 4.3 but just too buggy to use everyday. Now I need to go back to a older OS. How do I do this. Something I have never done before.
    Thanks

    Uninstall the 4.3 OS through Control Panel on your computer (add/remove programs)
    Download the OS you want to go back to.
    Then install as you did with the 4.3 OS (same steps)

    Uninstall the 4.3 thru Control Panel on PC (add remove programs)

    Then install and run the OS you want and delete the vendor.xml file. Now connect the BB to DM and it should prompt the update for the new OS

    While doing this make sure DM is closed. After the new OS is installed, choose the option to not open the desktop manager. Then delete the vendor file. If it does not prompt right away, try rebooting the PC.

    Re: roll back OS

    Right removed 4.3 OS from my computer through the control panel. Installed 4.2.107 on my pc.
    Connected the bb and ran DM. But when i start the app loader it does nothing. Would this be due to it seeing a newer OS on the phone?

    Re: roll back OS

    Right this is what I done.
    Remove all the OS on your computer through the control panel. Reinstall the OS you want to install onto the phone.
    Delete the vendor file. Remove the battery from the phone and plug in the usb. Start dm and click on the app loader.
    It will connect to your phone and warn you your about to load an older OS or could be an option, cannt remember.
    Then just let it do it thing.
    In a few minutes you will be back working again.
    Thanks for the help.
    Have had not to do the battery out trick since my 7100v

    Re: roll back OS

    If all else fails, just do a wipe in JL. With no OS on the phone it should recognize the update with no problems.

    Either way, hopefully it's back up working soon.

    Looks like you got it fixed, but I thought I'd point out that the problem you were probably encountering was due to removing the battery from the phone.

    You only have to do that step sometimes if your OS is completely wiped from the phone or for some other reason the device can't be detected by the DM.

    Glad you got it back fine. I'm missing the highlights of 4.3 too, hopefully its rolled out (relatively bug free) very soon.

    Re: roll back OS

    I found the only way I could get it to load the old OS was do the remove the battery trick.
    Yeah was lovely to use 4.3 even if it was buggy as hell.
    The wait continues. Worry though, was so excited at getting 4.3. Need to get out more
