    Upgrading OS from other Vendor

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    I have a Blackberry 8310 of Telefónica (or movistar) Chile, and this have the OS v4.2.2.146, but searching here, in the page of Lastest OS for Blackberry the last OS for my Device is 4.2.2.184 but say Celcom Malaysia, Indosat, M1 and others, not Telefónica, so my question is:

    ¿Can I install this OS in my BB or not?

    In the page of my provider the last OS available is 4.2.2.146

    Yes, uninstall any OS you have currently on your PC, install the updated non-vendor version, after installing delete the vendor.xml located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. Run desktop manager and it should tell you there are updates for your BB.

    No,it will not. The OS for the BB is the same. As long as you are downloading and installing the multi-language version your fine.
