    Problem - Desktop Manager 4.2.x - Media Manager

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I installed Desktop Manager 4.2 just this afternoon and some nice features are finally available...like Media Manager to transfer media files.

    However, my current BB8700c has OS 4.1.0.309 (platform 2.0.0.133) installed and when I launched Media Manager from Desktop Manager, an error popped up: "The connected BlackBerry device does not support transferring media files. Verify that the device has BlackBerry Device Software version 4.2 or later installed."

    As currently, I don't have OS 4.2 and can anyone here confirm when OS 4.2 will be released ? Thanks...

    My current BB is based on 8700C_PBr4.1.0_rel371_PL2.0.0.133_A4.1.0.309_CSL.e xe - I hope version 4.2 of this would be released soon...

    Well, I would say that at least one version of OS 4.2 will be available on 12 September when T-Mobile begins selling (officially) the 8100.

    Whether that will work with an 8700 is another question. Those qwerty/SureType OS's are usually not too friendly with each other.

    I don't think so. BB desktop manager 4.1 works well with devices having sw ver 4.0. So 4.2 should work with mentioned devices that I don't know.

    If you go into the Cingular 4.1 OS alx file (can't remember which version) suretype and full qwerty are actually packaged together in the same DL.

    I'm not questioning you statement, just saying that Cingular has never released an update to the original public release of the 8700 OS.

    Re: Problem - Desktop Manager 4.2.x - Media Manager

    I must now meet the following 2 requirements before I post on PS.

    A: Past 10am CST

    B: Minimum of 3 cups of coffee before logging in


    As far as the 4.2 OS (to get back on topic), I am surprised it hasn't leaked out yet, considering the 8100 launch is only 4 days away...

    If it were out there, one of us would have found it by now.

    Then all it will take is for the first person to test it (Probably Pentace) and make sure it works and inform of any bugs it may have.

    N8, I'm gonna guess that Pentace's copy of javaloader is going to get quite a workout, when he does. Is there any posibility that a 240 x 260 OS will work on a 320 x 240 Device?

    Re: Problem - Desktop Manager 4.2.x - Media Manager

    N8, Is 0x84000B03 the Cingular Device ID?

    4.1.0.175 is the only download package I have seen for Cingular's 8700.

    <bundle id="System" version="4.1.0.175">
    <devicehwid>0x84000B03</devicehwid>
    </bundle>

    This is the only occurance of 0x84000B03 in this list.

    Trying to learn more.
