If you go to the sticky at the top of this thread about OS 4.5 for the 8100 it has complete and easy instructions on how to upgrade your BB. OS 4.5 has documents to go built in that allows you to open doc, xls, and ppt files.

As far as ringtones you need to go into "profiles" from your home screen and change the ring tone for SMS. From the home screen scroll up to the little icon at the top left or right depending on your theme and click on it. It will open a menu so you can addjust every ringtone in the BB.

PS...Note: Preloaded wallpapers and custom folder icons are not included in this release.

Note: ColorPearl application is NOT compatible with OS 4.5. Please remove any trackball color applications you have installed if you load OS 4.5. Failure to remove ColorPearl will cause the notification LED come on and stay on steady until a battery pull.

It doesn't matter where the OS comes from it will work on any 8100. You have to follow ALL the instructions in the sticky and remove the vendor.xml file as explained before you upgrade the OS.

The app colour pearl allowed you to make the track ball, the pearl, different colours. It was for the 8100 only and doesn't work in OS 4.5

The LED is the little light in the very top left corner of your BB. You can set it to give you different notifications by colour.
