    cheeseman, welcome to PinStack,

    Good luck. I have heard one person say he got it to work, but I haven't heard any reports since then. And a bunch of others have tried unsuccessfully. Do let us know.

    I think they are modifying the download files. Don't know exactly what they are doing with them but we have quite a few "experimenters", White Hat Hackers, that don't mind taking the risk of having to spend time restoring there device to working order, just to see if they can accomplish something that most people wouldn't try or be able to accomplish.

    Hats Off to them, they are the ones that tend to drive all of us Engineers that have to follow proper procedure when designing new technology, to work harder with in the limits of our structures.

    The links to any OS 4.2 version for the 8700 are not available to the public yet. I'm sure that there are versions that are available to certain Beta testers and Carrier testers, but if a link to those got published, the responsible party would lose all access to anything RIM related for a long, long time. They are all under Non Disclosure Agreements, which is a very important legal contract, with harsh penalties for violations.

    Hope this helps

    I'm upgrading to the 8703e at the end of the month. It would be great if they had it by then. People tell me I should wait till the 8800 comes out but I could be waiting for a year for vzw to get it.

    I don't think it will be a year!

    Re: 4.2 for 8700

    Question, I came from a starcom 6700 win mobile 5.0 device "hated it" where I could flash the memory and work with an OS from scratch. If something becomes unstable with an 8703 BB what would / could you do to restore to factory defaults.

    At this point I havent broke anything, but I would consider myself a poweruser / hacker when it comes to fun gadgets and I just want to know if there are safeguards to use on these devices.

    My Cingular RIM rep said the 4.2 Os for the 8700 should be real soon; I can't recall all the features it will add though at the moment
