Default Blackberry 8800 OS: Handheld Software 4.2.1.138 / 4.2.1.90 released by rogers

Software For BlackBerry 8800 (TM)

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.138 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.2.1.138
Consisting of:
Applications: 4.2.1.90
Software Platform: 2.3.0.72
File name: 8800M_PBr4.2.1_rel138_PL2.3.0.72_A4.2.1.90_Rogers. exe
File size: 71.61MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.


I recommend editing your .alx to enable all themes. Jibi's edited .alx files and instructions can be found here.

Download the OS here


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.

relax dude, first, you have been here for quite some time, so I'm sure you know exactly where to go for OS downloads. Secondly, you most likely also know that
the release notes are not always available.


carry on...

I am totally relaxed.

Anyway, it's the principle of the thing.

Posting the link only makes it that much easier for the newer users that do not know where to get the OS from.

Default Installed

Running on a 8800 - Cingular - Theme now shows AT&T icon in center.
Seems, theme has permanently been changed for Cingular devices. Network name still showing Cingular, host routing table still showing cingular.

ok...so is this the ONLY change noticed in the new version or does it have new icons like the rumored 8300 OS?

EDIT:

After doing the upgrade, I have now lost my Cingular theme, Verizon theme, and Sprint theme. I do not have in place of the Cingular theme an At&T theme. Unless I used an outdated Blackberry.alx file I loaded in the Rogers OS and all went well. any thoughts as to why I lost certain themes?

This version also appears to have BB Maps v.1.1.32

Loading it now to see what the difference is.

Ok found the error...DO NOT load in another Blackberry.alx file such as Jibi's alx files as this deletes outdated themes in the updated OS from Rogers. ONLY delete the Vendor file so as to open up all themes. Just a FYI

Glad to see that your first-ever post in these forums was to attack a long time member with an excellent history of helping people out.
Brilliant ;)

Delete it, and then go to blackberry.com/maps on your handheld... The version included in this package is outdated, get the newest at blackberry.com/maps

being a long time member should mean that one would be helpful, not flippant and discourteous. what the world DOESNT need is more internet tough guys.
