Default Where can I get old firmwares?

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know where I can get old versions of the 8100 firmware? I haven't actually liked the last 4-5 versions as they have not brought new features / stability, but rather broken things. For instance, messages now often get stuck with a red cross across saying "Protocol error" (also see http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...agically.html), and Opera Mini crashes with exception errors.

I was told that version .73 was meant to be stable - anyone know where I can download this?

Here is a link that will take you to all the carrier's download sites. Start searching though the GSM carriers for the firmware you want for you 8100. Good luck.

I still choose to run 4.2.0.73... It is a ROCK. Although 4.2.1.107 isn't bad, until they fix the issues with SMS' not queuing when out of service I won't be upgrading. Deal breaker.

Sorry guys, but none of the links give me access to 4.2.0.73 only other versions (4.2.0.79 and 4.2.0.88). Any idea how I can get 4.2.0.73 specifically? Thx.
