View Full Version : BB OS 4.2 on 8703e

I acquired version 4.2 from someone on this board a while ago and tried to install it over the weekend. I have a 8703e (verizon). I didn't have any troubles installing it after doing to searches on Google, but I never could get it running. After installing 4.2 I always had this error when starting the 8703e: "jvm error 506".

I couldn't find anything to help me around the 506 error so I had to revert back to 4.1. I did do a full backup before the upgrade so I didn't lose any information.

Has anyone else tried an upgrade to 4.2 yet? If so what were your results?

4.2 is, at best, a beta software. And the only beta out is for GSM devices. You're getting an error because the software you've loaded is not intended for your device.

As the 4.2 Beta is restricted by NDAs, the passing around of said software is not something supported by this forum.
