    Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    Advertisement



    Hi all

    This is my first time posting on this forum- and i would like to extend my gratitude to in advance to those who help.

    I currently have a blackberry pearl (8100) and since owning it have found that i have a solid 3 second delay once answering an incoming call. I looked around this forum and found that others have had the problem and have dwonloaded os 4.2 to help this.

    I have now downloaded this OS on to a portable hardrive ready to work it with my home computer which has my blackberry destop, Except i have no idea how to get this OS on to my phone.

    Please can someone help me with a step by step guide how to do this?

    I assume i should backup my info prior?

    Nicky

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    apps can be downloaded two ways.
    that depends on the app
    OTA over the air using the BBbrowser
    or onto the PC and into the BB with desktop manager
    hope that helps

    forgot to say the proper welcome

    WELCOME to the stacks!

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    Ok...i understand...

    So for example i have just downloaded the stockviewer app from this website onto a portable harddrive to take it to the computer of my choice, how do i get from the harddrive to the correct location on my home computer in order to load it with my desktop manager?

    P.s thanks for the warm welcome

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    never tried this from a separate drive. should be fine.
    run desktop manager with the bb plugged in, hit app loader at the top of the list is a button to add.
    hit that and go from their. kinda easy, you may need to transfer it to your PC but not sure, try it

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    Kayos... i hope all is well... i tried to carry out the various instructions last night... but my home computer was not able to download the operating system ... not only that i have already deleted the "vendor.xml".. it is a shame blackberry desktop doesnt have an update function to bring it to the latest OS system.

    Can you suggest another idea as i cant download any version of the OS that you recommended, whether from the link or direct from blackberry...

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    I have forgotten how to post a new posting....ridiculous.

    I have download the stockviewer from this website's downloads, this is now on my BB but when i go on to it tells me there is an "open tunnel failure" (prob means it wont connect to my wap).

    I am in the UK and use orange as my network service provider..any advice?

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    first off sorry for being so late on the reply. time zones and all
    as for the download problems, what kind of error are you getting? is it a firewall setting on your home PC?

    as for the open tunnel failure all you neeed to do is change your APN setting, easy!
    under options>advanced options>TCP
    not sure which one orange is so here's the link for all carriers
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...t_carrier.html

    post back when you get a moment, let's figure out the OS download problem!
    and yes thanks all is very well.
