Q re: loading a OS on an unlocked BB 8900 from Movistar
hi there, I have a locked 8900 from Rogers running 126.96.36.199. And my Girlfriend has my old 8100, and she is looking to upgrade. She likes my Jav so I have been looking to get her one.
In a local advertisement I found an UNLOCKED 8900 that is branded to MOVISTAR.
I am unfamiliar with unlocked BB's.
Once I get the phone, will I be able to load the ROGERS branded 188.8.131.52 version on it? do I still have to delete the vendor.xml file, or can I just upgrade the bb with the complete rogers OS.
will I run into any other problems trying to load a rogers OS? or should I try to load a leaked OS? IMHO I like 184.108.40.206 it has been very stable for me.
You can load any OS on the device as long as it is specific to the 8900. You'll still need to delete the vendor.xml file, though, if it's not a Movistar OS.
to answer your question, yes, it is a 220.127.116.11 8900 specific version from Rogers
the seller just contacted me, the movistar 8900 is running v18.104.22.168.
so I should be able to upgrade to .250
