Default Rogers 8800 OS download

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know where I can get the original Rogers OS download file? Hopefully the one RIM had to manually re-patch causing the big release date delay.

It's not on the Rogers site yet: https://www.blackberry.com/SoftwareD...ient=biERdLcdT

Right now I'm running the O2 UK OS (BlackBerry from O2 - Help and support) and the Blackberry maps doesn't even appear....everything else is working though.

I used JL_Cmder and it wiped my 8800 to the bone.

It seems current models shipped from Rogers have OS version:
4.2.1.90 (platform 2.3.0.72)

versus the latest download from O2 UK:
4.2.1.73 (platform 2.3.0.54)

Where else can I get 4.2.1.90?

You can't yet. Some carrier will have to release it. Took a week or two before the Cingular version surfaced after launch.

On second thought, what am I going to gain vs. the Cingular firmware?

Cingular applications release is 4.2.1.72 vs. 4.2.1.68 on Rogers. Software Platform is identical.

You won't gain anything, I'm sure. Some Rogers products are being shipped with 4.2.1.90, I believe...I'm sure that will be posted, soon, too. Though, there's negligible differences between that an previous versions, too.

Interesting...the 8800 OS is no longer listed on the https://www.blackberry.com/SoftwareD...ient=biERdLcdT site. I hope they post the latest version this time.

mine came with .90 as well. I believe Rogers is in the process of making that handheld code available for download........it's crawling through the red tape.
