    Installing 4.2 OS for Sprint 8703e

    Advertisement



    If I install another carrier's 4.2 OS on my 8703e by Sprint will it screw anything up. I read that the OS upgrades are not carrier specific, but OS specific and if I install another 8700 carrier's 4.2 and simply delete the vendor.xml file won't it work right?

    If this will not work what else would I need to do?

    Thanks for any input.

    You need a 4.2 OS made for a CDMA device. GSM 4.2 os will not work.

    Oh really? Thank stinks.

    So there is absolutely NO way to just delete the vendor.xml OR anything to make it work huh?

    If I install the 4.2 for the 8830 from Verizon and then delete the vendor file will that work?

    I installed 4.2 from Rogers on my 8703e Sprint, well atleast i tried. I installed it on my 8703e installation went very smoothly but the 8703e would no load it kept reseting. If you want to try go ahead and have fun, Rogers is the only that you can install all other versions of 4.2 wont even install thru you appLoader. Best of luck to you, you just have to wait like the rest of us.

    There is currently NO 4.2 available for CDMA devices. Rogers is GSM and will not work.

    What is you model? If you have 8703e dont even bother updating to 4.2 you have to wait until your provider puts it out.
