Default OS switch over?

Could the 4.3 OS in verizon 8310 curves be installed into the 8320?

I know they're made to work with GPS rather than wifi, but is this possible to gain video recording capabilities?

I don't think this is possible but let's wait and see what other weigh in with.

Probably not as they use different chipsets. One is CDMA, the other is GSM. I dont think anyone has successfully used an OS from one model of phone on another.

Not true at all. Neither are CDMA. The 8310 and 8320 are both GSM/EDGE devices.

The OS is designed specifically per model. An OS for 8310 will not install on an 8320 or vice versa.

There is also no such thing as a Verizon 8310 Curve.
Verison doesn't have the Curve at all.

No Curve on any carrier has OS 4.3

Cut to the chase. It Is Impossible. Many have tried. And they have gotten very good at using Javaloader (the guts of JL_CMDER).
