Default Officially confused from Pearl variations

Please Login to Remove!

OK, dying to slap the new OS on my White, Blackberry Pearl.

I updated to the latest revision available from Rogers, but I want to slap in that 4.5 that seems so popular.

How do I figure out what model I have of Pearl, let alone figure out if there is a 4.5, NON Beta that I can slap on it?

Help?

The Pearl 8100 model is the only model in white, I believe. So you must have the 8100 Pearl model. I believe that the 8100 4.5.0.37 release is out there, too.

Ahh!! excellent!

OK, then, since its white, its an 8100? also since i just realized it says 8100 in the about screen. (but it could have said that anyway I was assuming)

and just to confirm, ver 4.5 is available as a NON Beta?

The about screen will show you your exact model number, not just the model group. So if it says 8100 that's what you've got.

8100 4.5 (non-beta) http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...dafone-de.html

I don't believe there is a pre-req level for the 4.5 upgrade.
