    Re: 4.2 8700 update

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I just tried installing the 8800 OS on my 8700v , via the same procedure as. Trying to load 8707 OS on a 8700.

    Itread the java thingy on my phone when I try to upgrade the OS, it even listed 4.2 and my softwares loaded, but when I click next it says can't install "something" because "rim_platform_esc__script" is missing.

    I can't remember the exact error phrase, as I'm on my phone right now, but will post it soon.

    Basically I don't think it can be done, we'll just have to wait and pray that a 4.2 version comes out soon for the BB8700.

    If the only difference between the 8700 and the 8800 is the OS and the pearl, then RIM might not come out with a 4.2version for BB 8700, they have to have product differtiation... Otherwise if I had 4.2 on my 8700, I'd be happy and not move to 8800 just for the pearl !!! Y pay that extra money, rather buy the extended battery.

    Re: 4.2 8700 update

    I already tried the Cingular 8800 OS on my 8700g last night but it is a no go.
    My DM did detect the new 8800 OS and went through the 1st phase of
    erasing existing applications on handheld and uploading part of the 8800 OS.

    Then when it was time for the DM to recognize the handheld awaiting
    re-initialization, my 8700g kept repeatedly rebooting.
    This went on non-stop even after a battery pull.
    No way could the DM recognize/re-initialize my handheld again.

    Back on the original .377 8700 OS now.

    HTH !

    I'd definitely be willing to get a beta version, if I could, ya know find one.

    Any idea where they're lurking?

    Re: 4.2 8700 update

    I was using a copy of the 4.2 beta for the 8700, but I took it off pretty quick. very unstable and buggy and makes your BB slow. not a very good one. although the new features are nice, but not really worth it. Be better off waiting for the final copy if they decide to release it
