Default 4.2.1.102 / 4.2.1.66 [TIM Italy Release]

Please Login to Remove!

OK, one of you pros (John Clark where are youuuuuuu) tell me -- is this not an entire whole new major release of 8100 software?

==
Software For BlackBerry Pearl 8100 Smartphone

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.102 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.2.1.102
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.2.1.66
* Software Platform: 2.3.0.57
* File name: 8100M_PBr4.2.1_rel102_PL2.3.0.57_A4.2.1.66_TIM_Ita ly.exe
* File size: 72.87MB

Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.
==

Start page:
https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...190CAAD5802983

Interestingly on the same page they still list the older 4.2.0.XX release at the same time...


To install this update:
1. Download and install the latest version of Desktop Manager
2. Donwload this OS and install it to the PC.
3. Delete the vendor.xml file located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader (this step is necessary any time an OS is installed from a different carrier than what is branded on the BB.)
4. Plug in BB and open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.

This is the long awaited 4.2.1
There have been a few versions of 4.2.1.xx Pearl code floating around the last few weeks.

This appears to be the first publicly released version I'm aware of.

It should work just fine on your Pearl. A Pearl is a Pearl is a Pearl.

I'm still going through all the download links on that massive Carrier page in the FAQ, but so far this is the newest still.

EDIT: it's the newest, checked every carrier. [2007-03-15 16:52 PST]

Did you mod your blackberry.alx to unlock the themes? Any changes from the 4.2.0.x technique?

I'm curious to know exactly what the update fixes! Might have to give it a shot after class.

Right off the bat..... T-Mo Zen theme NOW (when hitting menu) does not bring up the pop up box where you scroll down to see the apps it now takes you to whole screen icon mode...
