    Upgrading the OS


    I hope this is of use to others too, I'm on O2 in the UK and have seen a number of OS upgrades floating around now what I want to know is can I use these on my phone or will it cause damage? If it'll cause damage, can I revert the changes?

    I'm on v4.5.0.51 I think if that helps

    Re: Upgrading the OS

    hi welcome yes you can use anybody elses os the latest one i think is cingulars .71 just make sure you delete the vendor.xml file there is absolutely no problem at all go through the forums and you will find loads more help

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\VENDOR.XML
    First, install BlackBerry OS 4.x but do not run BlackBerry Desktop. Next, delete or rename the VENDOR.XML. Finally, run desktop manager to install.

    Link to Blackberry OS downloads by carrier:

    .88 is the package number
    the OS is still .71
    Software For BlackBerry Pearl (8100c) BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.0.88 (Multilang)

    Package Version:
    Consisting of:
    • Applications:
    • Software Platform:
    • File name: 8100M_PBr4.2.0_rel88_PL2.2.0.41_A4.2.0.71_Cingular .exe
    • File size: 68.01MB
    hope that helps...
