Default Os: 8130 4.3.0.203/4.3.0.127

Please Login to Remove!

New OS for the 8130 series device (released by Ntelos.) This OS will work on any carrier's 8130 device, including Verizon/Sprint.

  • Applications: 4.3.0.127
  • Software Platform: 3.1.0.73
  • File name: 8130uEFS_PBr4.3.0_rel203_PL3.1.0.73_A4.3.0.127_NTE LOS.exe
  • File size: 97.0 MB

Download here: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...615847C1CAA69A


Select Blackberry 8130 from the dropdown and click Next. Then click the "Download" link that appears at the bottom of the page.

Instructions for installing on any CDMA 8130 from any carrier:

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Desktop Manager installed. It's 4.2 SP2, or Version 4.3, and can be downloaded Click Here.
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's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
4. Plug in BB 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."

If you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to DM again and run application loader again and it should load the OS to the device.

Previous version OS is located here.

just got off the phone with alltel, had to make sure before I did anything, that link up there sent me to an Ntelos download.
The Tech guy over there told me that there is no update for my 8130, and that update is for the curve? dude also would told me that I would be informed of any updates...

as it is.. I don't have any support for MMS, and the GPS is problematic.. so I'm wondering what to do and who to believe.oh yeah, I apparently have v4.3.0.81

Bgnome...welcome to the forums.

You can install any 8130 OS onto your 8130. It doesn't have to be from your carrier. All the OS's are developed by RIM and the carriers test and release them when they feel like it.

Again, you CAN load this to your 8130. it's just not released by your carrier Alltel.

There is a misprint in your Text in the original post.

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Desktop Manager installed. It's 4.2 SP2, or Version 4.3, and can be downloaded Click Here. or from the AllTel site linked above.

The site linked is for Ntelos and you say Alltel. That's where the confusion is.

Fixed. I just copied and pasted the instructions from the last "latest OS" post. I missed that. Thanks!

Thanks, I installed today--no problems. The only difference I've noticed so far is a little more memory available, which is fine. Anyone know what's in this release?

This is for CDMA devices, not GSM (which is what T-Mobile has). You cannot install this on an 8100 device.

You have to look in the thread that corresponds you your device's model number (e.g. 8100, 8120).

A serious issue I've discovered with the new version is that it won't let me hold down the ALT key to type in numbers consecutively. It's ALT, release, first number. ALT, release, second number, and so on.

What application(s) are you using when this happens. If I am creating a new email message, I can hold down Alt and type consecutive numbers. It sounds like an issue with specific applications.

I did have a faulty Pearl 8130 and picked up its replacement last night. I loaded the new OS and I can ALT-number consecutively. Sorry for the false alarm. I'm happy to have a fully working Pearl once more!

Anybody else notice sound problems in brickbreaker after this update? Like the sound effects seem to disappear.

Tried uninstalling/reinstalling brickbreaker, didn't help. Then tried wiping and reinstalling firmware (extreme I know, but I like this game). Still didn't work. I then decided to revert back to 4.3.0.97 and the sound problem was gone.

Other than this I did not see any other differences. So I guess I will be sticking with 4.3.0.97 for a while longer. Got to have sound with my brickbreaker!

p.s. First post by the way, although I have been a reader for a while. Lots of great information here.

Thanks for the link, downloading now for the missus' 8130.
By the way, that file size should read 97MB (not 37MB).

.172 has seemed to fix my speaker phone problem of the speaker phone coming on for a second and then going back to the handset when I answered a call...
