Default Newbie has questions about firmware.

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

First off great site...im new to the blackberry scene and am learning so much.

Herres my question. I purchased a Blackberry 8700c.....its under Cingular / AT&T network currently. Im going to unlock it soon as I need to use it under Rogers.

Now my question is.....what do i use to change the firmware to be like the ROGERS firmware?

Is that possible?

Any help would be great.

Welcome to BB Forums.

If you want to flash it to remove the Cingular or AT&T flash screen (at startup) you can't do that. Putting on "Rogers" software won't help at all.

Check out http://www.blackberryfaqs.com for information on how to load software onto the BB.

Here's the short version - check out the FAQ link I sent you.

You want to change the "Theme". There is a LOT of information about themes. Check out the Media section here to learn more about things to try and get the one you want.
