I don't think i'm an idiot, but i don't know how to upgrade my device ... Older Device Themes. forum
I don't think i'm an idiot, but i don't know how to upgrade my device software. I have a 7100i and aparently i can upgrade to a higher OS so i can use the zen theme. I just have no idea how it's all done.
If I'm in the wrong forum, please just point me in the right direction. Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance.
you are in the right place. give me a minute to send you a link with instructions
go here to upgrade your 7100i os.
After downloading it to your pc install it by selecting the .exe file. When the install is complete.
Connect your handhelp to your pc open the desktop manager and it should recongize the newer os and ask you to update your handheld software. Select ok/yes.
When the upgrade is finished you should be ready for the Zen theme install.
The Zen theme install can be done by going to this link on your bb browser and selecting to download the theme. When the theme download is finished re-boot the phone. After which the theme should be seen in the options/themes section.

^ looks like you got the help. sorry i wasnt fast enough. if you need ANY help, feel free to pin me and ill help you in any way possible
It didn't recognize anything. Should I delete both desktop manager and handlheld software and try it again?
do you have the actual 7100i software installed? if you dont have that installed on your phone it wont prompt you to update your phone.
this isnt really my area since ive only upgraded once so maybe someone with more knowledge could help you out more
sorry glehman i thought u may have been delayed by work/phone etc so i posted the links for the software he may have needed.

Thanks for all your help, but
It's just not working. I have the original software installed and it doesn't recognize the newer OS version when I run the desktop manager.
Did you execute the download file .exe file? You need to do that for DM to recognize it.
I did it all, and still nothing.
No worries, thanks for trying
