Exclamation 8100 OS: Rogers 4.2.1.189 / 4.2.1.109 (Multilanguage)

Please Login to Remove!

Hy, a new OS is out .

8100M_PBr4.2.1_rel181_PL2.3.0.85_A4.2.1.109_Rogers .exe

Package Version: 4.2.1.181; Consisting of:
Applications: 4.2.1.109
Software Platform: 2.3.0.85
File size: 73.29MB

Download


Credits to "acnst" from http://www.blackberry-forum.de

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year

Instructions for installing:

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Desktop Manager installed. Currently, the latest version available is 4.3 and may be downloaded here: http://www.blackberry.com/go/softwaredownloads

2. Download the above file to the PC then install it to the PC by running the file you downloaded.

3. Locate the vendor.xml file and delete it. It is located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\Apploader

4. Plug in the BlackBerry and open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.

The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization." Don't unplug from the PC & Don't remove the battery unless the spinning hourglass has been there for 30 minutes or more. If the hourglass has been spinning for more than 30 minutes continuously you will need to wipe the device with JL_Cmder (close out of Desktop Manager during this process.) You will then end up with a white screen with small icons and an error code number like 507 or 543.

That's not what we are waiting for
Better post us a link to 4.3 OS.
Are there any changes between .108 and .109??

Wirelessly posted (7130e: BlackBerry8320/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

I hope there will be a 4.3 upgrade soon for the curve.

Since when does downloading a new OS require signing your life away to RIM?

It's always been that way. I've been telling them who I am for several years. They haven't come after me yet.

I doubt there is much difference. This one is multilanguage, the other was Asian.

software platform is the same as the .108 only difference is the .109 which probably is a carrier feature instead of a RIM thing but I installed it but I don't see how people are having a problem with the message que problem I don't have it.

Will this update fix the problem of it not recognizing the microSDHC cards? I bought the 4gig Sandisk and the pearl doesn't even recognize it at all.

Arrrrgggghhh!!! Why can't they fix this!!?? How hard is it? The bug is even in the 4.3 OS betas. If everything wasn't signed up the wazoo, I would fix it myself... This was never a problem in the 4.2.0 series OS. It can't be that hard for RIM to compare the changed SMS code to figure out what they broke.

What was the last good known stable 4.2 OS where this SMS queue would send when back in coverage?

My guess is that it is not a "bug." Probably a battery saving move by RIM.

Surprised no-one asked this yet. Has the Multi-tap bug been fixed yet?

4.2.0.71 is what I run, and it works great. Rock solid.

It is clearly a bug, because emails on latter OS' still queue email just fine. Furthermore, when you think of the logic behind the whole thing the radio will be doing service scans on its own interval completely regardless of what type of data is waiting to go over the wireless network.

They just need to add back whatever statements told the SMS sending mechanism to wait until signal was re-established.
