    Re: Simple Question About 8100 OS

    Can I ask what exactly it is you want to do with your BB? You want to upgrade to the latest OS? What are you using...an 8100? If you could fill in your profile details for us, it would be helpful and easier for us to assist you.
    There really is no way for us to know what your friend did, but I can tell you that you cannot put a 4.3 OS on an 8100, that OS is for the 8120/8130 BB only and will BRICK any other device if attempted or cause a multitude of problems.

    I'd like to know exactly what he did. But I'd pay attention to Lavagirl, she knows her stuff.

    using the hex editor he probably just change the version number to make it look as if it is 4.3. But like lavagirl said. you try putting that os on any other device then what it was made for you might as well say good bye to that bb.

    they dub it 4.5 which will be release for the 8100 and many other BB models. No release date on it though.

    Here is a thread on the 4.5 os
