Default Telstra Software for BlackBerry 7130e and 7250 - 4.1.0.364

Please Login to Remove!

I'm not really sure why Telstra does not have the Zen theme (or the Cingular 71xx theme) included with this newer version of the OS. Anyhow, if you want Zen back on your handheld after you upgrade, I have put a very condensed instruction set on how to do so.

BlackBerry 7130e Handheld Software v4.1.0.364
Package Version: 4.1.0.364
Consisting of:
xxx8226; Applications: 4.1.0.309
xxx8226; Software Platform: 2.2.0.120
xxx8226; File name: 7130eEFSBP_PBr4.1.0_rel364_PL2.2.0.120_A4.1.0.309_ Telstra.exe
xxx8226; File size: 40.3 MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.
xxx8226; Download Software

BlackBerry 7250 Handheld Software v4.1.0.364
Package Version: 4.1.0.364
Consisting of:

well it works but it did not fix the signal icons in zen...

--edit
don't like this ver i'm going to have to down grade
some of the option for displaying messages numbers in the home screen is missing.

---edit
what is realy missing is home screen in options all there is is just organize apps...

Downgrading is fun

I was about to look to install the NEXTEL 4.1 on a TELUS 7520 with the only instruction to delete then vendor.xml file.

Now I see this post that have a more recent 4.1 with some more instructions like replacing an alx file.

Should I go this way? Anyone installed it on a TELUS 7520?

hmmm.. are you sure? Both offer 7520 with PTT enabled. And a few post below, a thread I started, someone say he's using NEXTEL package on his TELUS without problem.

OOPS! Forget my 1st post, I was reading 7520 and it's 7250! My bad! So I think I was right about NEXTEL, those model numbers confused us.

I usually restart my computer and then it notices the upgrade - otherwise, just let it sit and it will eventually do it.

More importantly - why is anyone installing this Telstra when Sprint's .387 is out and it fixes all the glitches found in this one?

don't upgrade to this one, use the newer Sprint version - this one doesn't allow bluetooth synch
