    Go here and download desktop manager 4.1 and also the handheld software for your device.

    GinoKyo,

    No, it is dependent on the OS, not just desktop manager. It only works with the Pearl, which has OS 4.2 also.

    Re: Help! upgrading my handheld 7100t software

    Just wondering if you were able to do the upgrade to 4.1?

    I'm having the same issue. I'm trying to upgrade my device to 4.1 but with no success. I've installed 4.2 desktop, but it does try to upgrade the device when i plug it in. Then i tried installing 4.1 sp1 desktop and it does not upgrade the device either.

    I checked the BB site for device software seperate from the desktop software but havn't found anything.

    I have a 7100t.

    When i load themes ota or through desktop manager they don't show up under themes. They show up under applications loaded, but that is all.

    Hi all

    I am very new to all this, but have been trying to upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1 by following the instructions on 'how to upgrade your BB' instructions on pinstack for the 7100t. So that I can download some more themes. Frankly I am pulling my hair out (or what little I naturally have left) trying to piece it together!
    - Have downloaded 'multilingual V4.1 desktop' (all 120mb of it).......deleted the vendor.xml file as instructed, but when I run it nothing is upgraded ie still on 4.0 on BB. Oh yes great the DTM is now 4.1 but not the handheld OS ???? Am i missing somthing about this being a separate programme ? and if so where is it, as I can not find hide nor hair of one?
    - I have also read on the site that one could do a complete 'wipe' of all application on the BB (after a backup.........dont worry!) and hope it will do a clean install/update when I plug it back in? But this is a little scary to be honest.
    - Any and all help appreciated boys and girls as getting balder by the minute.
    thanxs

    I don't think so since, in the ALX files, 8100 is written several times.

    Alright ..so when it works it all seems so simple, I persisited refusing to loose the few hairs I had left. Heres what I found to my own questions:

    - There ARE sepaterate 4.1V DM and BB programs to download. Yes for those who have done it or course there are. But for others it never actually says this in the 3 pinstack 'how to update your OS to 4.1V' strings I have read.
    - It is best to download your original phone carriers OS versions - I found a list searching on google. (I am not permitted to post it here though) but I searched under 'blackberry 4.1 os download 7100'
    [FONT=Arial](I used the T-mobile version with the dummy number provided. As I already had 4.1 Desktop manager, I just downloaded the handheld software OS 4.1)[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Save it loocally to your hard drive.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Plug in your BB to the PC[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- (Make sure your Desktop manager is closed) Now open the 'new handheld program' and let it install on your PC as per screen per instructions. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Close all. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Go to C/Program files/Common files/Research in Motion/Apploader. and delete the file called 'vendor.xml' (dont ask I just did what I was told by other on this site)[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Start up your DM program[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Type in your passwords as usual[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- AT LAST a splash screen appears which says new software 4.1 etc HOORAY it finally happaned ![/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Follow instructions to allow it to backup/wipe/reinstall all your BB stuff...............it will do its think for about 20-30mins loading.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- The 7100 froze here and I had to remove the battery to reboot and Restore the latest backup as all files were now blank[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]= 4.1OS ! Take some time adjusting your setting to how you liked them[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- For some free themes search out 7100 threads and download some theme variations where directed. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]- Load themes in the usual way and it works at last......variety hooray....but oh dear the speed[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial].....................why is it all so ruddy difficult?[/FONT]

    Post Help!my handheld 7100t software

    hi
    I have recently purchased a second hand BB 7100t.
    I just have the handset and the charger.
    Can anyone help me in finding the desktop manager for this instrument in particular and how I can install the various themes available and where?
    Also how can I reset the handset to the factory settings?
    regards
    viv
