| | How do I switch my OS?
Please Login to Remove!
I know this is a stupid question, but I've searched and I can't find the answers...
I just bought a Cingular 8800 on eBay and I want to put T-Mobile's OS on it (I'm a t-mo customer). I have Desktop Manager installed, and I downloaded and installed the OS from t-mobile on my computer, but...how do I get it on my Blackberry? When I plug in the blackberry, it says there are "new applications" and asks me if I want to install them. No, I don't want updated apps, I want the whole OS! How do I do it?
People keep saying "oh just download the new OS and load it on with BB desktop manager". Well I don't see an option for installing new OS. People also say to delete the Vendor.xml file prior to updating. Do I need to do this? I want my phone to assume as much t-mo identity as possible. I feel like I'm retarded for not understanding this, but could someone please tell me (or link me to a page that says) exactly step-by-step what to do?
Also, I'm still waiting for my unlock code. Should I wait and unlock my phone before installing the new OS? Or does it not matter?
