Question HELP I need VzW 8703 4.1 OS

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking for someone who still has a copy of VzW's 8703eEFSBP_PBr4.1.0_rel539_PL2.2.0.176_A4.1.0.377 .exe OS file.
I got the upgrade bug and now have a handset that just isn't working. Refer to my post "4.2.1.106 post upgrade issues VzW " if you want details.

The smithco download site doesn't have prior versions out there.

Help!!!

Best regards
Scott

Default Yeah Dawg

Dude I'm bummed too. But I got a handset that just won't make calls most of the time. Freaky problem really.
I'm lucky enough to for the carrier so I'm thinking I'm going to have them send me the 8800. The features it provides are quite nice minus the problems.

Best regards
Scott

That would be me! I never installed it to my PC -- didn't realize I should do that and now it is no longer available on Verizon's website. Anyone here have the install file for it and would be willing to share? I know it's too big to email, but I figured out a way someone could get it to me.

I haven't upgraded to 4.2 yet -- I'd like to have the 4.1 version before I upgrade in case something goes wrong.

I have it, send me your e-mail address, and I'll be glad to e-mail it to you. I also switched back to 4.1. 4.2 was just not my cup-of-tea. Lots of lag, and really did not care for the entire operating system!

Not yet. I'm kind of chicken after seeing what others have been through. But I will -- soon.

OK all herexxx8217;s the scoop. I had to uninstall the 4.2 and 4.1 off my PC then reinstall the 4.1 in order for the DM to allow me to revert back to 4.1.
Post installation; all is well again. The handset functions as it did before. I am going to reapply the 4.2 just to see if I can duplicate the problems.
The problems again are:
1. After the handset sits then times out the screen and keyboard locks; outbound calls and SMS do not connect. When an outbound call is attempted the message is "connecting".....it will stay this way indefinitely. SMS will have the clock icon and never deliver UNTIL and inbound call is received. Following an inbound call the handset is able to make outbound call and send SMS without problems until the screen and keyboard lock again.

2. Either the new OS reports signal strength more accurately than the 4.1 version or the new 4.2 version fails to maintain stronger signal strength. Donxxx8217;t know but signal strength is consistent and stronger on 4.1

3. I wasnxxx8217;t ever able to get BES to reactivate on the 4.2 OS. Now that I am back on 4.1 I am reconnected (without having to reactivate).

4. BIS and PIN worked fine along with internet the entire time when the outbound calls and SMS wouldnxxx8217;t work.

HELP!

I just screwed up and upgraded to 4.2.

I need 8703eEFSBP_PBr4.1.0_rel539_PL2.2.0.176_A4.1.0.377. exe

If someone would like to help. You could post the file here:

Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire

I've used that file host a few times. Or email it if it's not too big.


Thanks for any help.

kirkpuppy>>> Do a quick search, I have personally uploaded the file too, two different sites for others to use.

Its a huge file so it cannot be attached to an e-mail. Please read some of the posts and check this thread and you will see others that might provide you a link to their server so you can log onto it and download it.

Good Luck,

Matt
