BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.164 (Multilanguage)

Package Version: 4.2.1.164
Consisting of:

* Applications: 4.2.1.101
* Software Platform: 2.3.0.80

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E38BBE070EC3F5

To install this update:

1. Make sure your Desktop Manager is up to date. Latest version can be downloaded Here
2. Download AND install to your PC the 4.2.1.101 OS package. Once downloaded double click on the file you downloaded to install to the PC.
3. Delete the vendor.xml file located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
4. Plug in the BB, Open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.

*A backup and restore is part of the process so your data/apps will transfer over. After the OS loads it is not uncommon to see the spinning hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time on the device. The process can take 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data needs to be backed up and restored.

If you end up with a white screen with small icons with a circle and a line through it, simply plug back into the Desktop Manager, run Application Loader and reload the OS.

Good luck.

Default Noob query

Good day. I am new here and a new user of BB 7130g. Just wanted to clarify some points before I attempt to upgrade my OS. My carrier is Globe Telecom in the Philippines, is it ok to upgrade with the latest software? If in case something goes wrong during the upgrade process, is there a way to revrt back to the old OS? Hoping for a favorable reply. Thank you in advance and more power!!!

Yes, you can use this on your 7130g. However, the only way to revert back is if you have a copy of the old OS. You'd have to find a download for it somewhere.

Default My 7130g

So this won't affect the existing carrier I'm using? What was the link you attached for? Sorry, just a bit confused.

Hi what advantages does this new upgrade offer over the older os?
It sounds slightly complex to upgrade?
