    Question Should I upgrade OS?

    Advertisement



    Okay, so here's the deal. My 7230 T-Mobile Blackberry has become boring. The unfortunate issue is that I can't put any new games or thmes on it because I already have the highest OS available for it, but none of the games I've found will run on it. I was given the advice to try using an OS from a different carrier, but I'm worried that if I do that, the phone won't work anymore since the carrier is T-Mobile. Am I right with that concern or am I just paranoid, and if I AM just paranoid, can someone tell me, by walking me through the steps, how to put a better OS on this thing. I've been stuck with the basic theme and ringtones since I bought this thing during Christmas. ANY HELP APPRECIATED!

    it will work as long a you delete teh vendor file under mycomputer>program files>common files>research in motion>app loader after you install the other carries OS make sure you just delete the vendor file then plug in your BB and open up the DM and it will prompt you for an update


    ps dont forget to do a backup before attempting an os upgrade

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    After finding the official release of the upgrade you'd like to use:
    1.Backup your Berry
    2.Download the upgrade to your desk top
    3.Click on the upgrade icon and follow all prompts to install on your computer
    4.Click on Start, Search, and enter Vendor File
    5.Delete the alx Vendor File
    6.USB BB to pc
    7.Open Desktop Manager
    DM will indicate there's an upgrade available. Click yes. This process will take a while. Go do something else for about 45 minutes!
    Any further questions, let us know

    Alright, so, I'm at Step 2 right now. http://forums.pinstack.com/blogs/jde...ll_models.html

    Which upgrade should I use?

    Also.... is there any way I could talk to you on a messenger of some kind. Talking me through this would be a little easier that way.

    Hm, okay, I have the OS file downloaded, what's next.

    Also, forgive my newbie-ness to this site, but what do you mean 'PIN' you?
