    Post 8707 OS version Rel .481 /Apps .355: new 4.1 to play with until 4.2 releases

    Advertisement



    If anyone's interested, here's an intermediate 4.1 to play with
    until the next higher one before the actual 4.2 OS releases:

    For two Asian 8707g phones:
    Release version: 4.1.
    Package Version: 4.1.0.481 | Applications: 4.1.0.355
    Software Platform: 3.1.0.17

    https://www.blackberry.com/SoftwareD...ient=cB5RB4aRB

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...9035BC566CE2B9

    Chinese versions too on those pages.

    Working very well on my 8700g for now.
    Updated versions of all themes from what I could see in the files that install on the PC.
    Not noticed any new changes yet on my BB.

    Have fun

    Good news - it restores the TCP stack on the 8707

    When you say, updated versions of all themes graphreak. What do you mean? Can you give more detail? Or can anyone give more detail?

    I can see my desktop showing the version mentioned but my device is still showing:v4.1.0.347. What do I need to so to refresh the handheld?

    Jeffery, You say your desktop shows 4.1.0.355. Is that Desktop Manager when in your Apps Loader? or just the file on your Desktop? If the latter execute it then go to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader Folder and delete the vendor.xml file. Now run Apps Loader and complete the installation.

    Hope this Helps
    Rcbjr.

    Please note that since this is an 8707 OS, the Desktop Manager will not
    recognize it as an upgrade for the 8700 -or install it- without a few additional steps.

    Steps quoted earlier a few times in other threads too from the Original one by N8DBB-
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...94_8707_a.html

    The Only OSs the DM can recongnize as an upgrade version for the 8700
    after only deleting the Vendor.xml file would be another newer 8700 OS.

    And then again we have the Blackberry.alx file too to work on.

    People I can not stress enough to you that this os is not a good os to try and load. I did it and my bb is fried beyond repair. If you do this you do it at your own risk.

    Again! Do not install this os. Do so at your own risk!

    Could you please give more details on how and what happened?
    Perhaps there's a chance to recover your BB still.

    Yesh! It fried something inside. It won't even respond after a java wipe. And yes I did install it correctly. Halfway thru the install it thru a jvm 102. And its been toast ever since.

    Sorry to hear about the sad happening.
    Perhaps a visit to this thread and trying the steps in the instructions 'may' revive your BB?

    Guess it just wasn't your phone's day.
    Can't come up with any other suggestion at the moment other than
    to keep trying those steps.
    I know the 8700 is a pretty sturdy 'being' and its not very easy to kill it.

    My 8700g has been through so many OS transfusions it must be thinking I (the owner)
    needs to go on a vacation.
