    7100t - what is the newest OS it can run?

    Advertisement



    Hey,
    have been geeting a 7100t (T-Mobile Germany, but now unlocked, thus used with a different carrier) some time ago from eBay and tried to upgrade to the newest OS. Have been browsing around and managed to upgrade to 7100M_PBrER4.1.0_rel466_PL1.8.0.149_A4.1.0.351_CSL .exe nicely. Is there any newer OS version available?

    I tried 7100iEFS_PBr4.1.0_rel525_PL2.1.0.46_A4.1.0.376_Nex tel unsuccessfully. It doesn't installed (I deleted the vendor.xml properly). Maybe because the 2.1 OS version?

    Practically I try to get the 7100t to connected through Bluetooth to my IBM Thinkpad (which uses IBM Bluetooth SW) and being able to browse etc.

    Any help is appreciated... Thanks, Jimmy

    Hello and welcome to pinstack. The reason the 7100i OS didnt work is because it is iDEN OS and wont work on an GSM BB.

    Ooopsm hope nothing broke :-) I did try this site, but as I'm here in Germany and have a unlocked T-Mobile 7100t I can't access the US T-Mobile site due to missing 10-digit T-Mobile number :-(

    And the German T-mobile site is pretty outdated...

    Thanks for your help... this is great

    Hi Everybody.
    I have to disagree with not being able to install the 7100i OS on a 7100t.
    I am running 7100iEFS_PBr4.1.0_rel525_PL2.1.0.46_A4.1.0.376_Nex tel.exe on a 7100t.

    Hi Everybody.

    I am running 7100iEFS_PBr4.1.0_rel525_PL2.1.0.46_A4.1.0.376_Nex tel.exe on a 7100t.
    [edit]
    I guess I should have been a little clearer on how i did this.

    1. Connect your BB
    2. Backup everything you want to keep from your BB.
    3. Download and install the latest OS from Nextel or which ever carrier has the latest.
    4. Browse to Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\7100i-v4.1.0.376_P2.1.0.46 folder.
    5. Create a folder named "GPRS" and copy the contents of "iDEN' to the "GPRS" folder.
    6. Browse to Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and delete vendor.xml
    7. Using JL_Cmder, 5) wipe your BB. Then 8) Exit JL_Cmder.
    8. Start Desktop Manager, it should see that your BB needs to be updated. Go throught the process of updating.
    Note: The updating seemed to take longer than normal.
    9. Restore your data.

    Note: I have yet to be able to use 'wav' as ringtone as this may be dependent on the hardware in the BB. If anyone is sucessful in being able to use 'wav', please let me know. Also if this process works for you too.

    Do this at your own risk, I nor Pinstack can be held responsible for any damages that may be inccured to your device.
