    Re: New Software v4.2.1.138 for Blackberry 8800

    there's not much difference between the original OS from Cingular and the Roger's version. Some of the noted differences are:

    -being a little snappier
    -GPS locks on faster
    -cingular theme has been changed to AT&T with only 2 rows of icons versus 4
    -and Opera mini doesn't seem to work with this version.

    Hope this helps

    on a side note:

    any idea if RIM is going to release 4.2.2 for the 8800 like they are for the 8300 series?

    if you're using an unlocked 8800 from cingular on the Tmo network and upgrade to a new OS at anytime, the phone will never lock again correct? My cingular BB won't automatically become a "LOCKED" ROGER'S" unit will it? I am hoping that when Tmo comes out with their, I will just upgrade to their new OS! ANy reason I should try this new Rogers upgrade on my cingy "UNLOCKED" device?

    no, the OS does not control the 'locking/unlocking' of your phone. you can put ANY carrier OS on your device, as long as it is specific to your device model (8800)

    Thanks Cherri...now one more question. If I installed the Rogers new OS on my 8800 and didnt like it could I go backwards and reinstall the orginal Cingular OS from the website?

    when I download and install the new OS then run my desktop manager how will it see the new OS? In the loader folder I now have two OS folders...the cingular and the Rogers. So whats the procedure please?

    you have to uninstall the cingy version thru control panel>add/remove programs on your PC

    then delete the vendor.xml file from the rogers version (program files/common files/research in motion/apploader

    This release fix the following at least for me :
    • Uncaught Exception:
      Java.lang.ArrayIndexOutofBoundsException .
    • It lets you to choose whether or not enable the automatic backlight option.
    Confimed that Opera Mini does not work with this release.

    Cheers

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i was hoping the option to have the trackball light up for incoming calls would be in this release, but not so. I miss that feature from my pearl.

    So happy about the automatic refreshing now!
