Re: Bold 9700: Upgrade to OS6?

OK - playing around with it for a few minutes and I have noticed that navigation is a little slower....however, the interface is pretty cool.   More to come as  I play with it.

Norbert, et al

You should use the power of Google to your advantage!

Been running OS 6 on my Bold 9700 for a month now. I like it!

I don't advocate installing anything that isn't authorized by RIM or Blackberry. This is obviously a BETA and not published for production use. It's working fine on my device though, as hundreds, if not thousands of others... Enjoy!

Did you notice I am on a Torch 9800?

 

Also OS 6 was released by a carrier today.

Re: Bold 9700: Upgrade to OS6?

Hello sandro21,

 

What carrier are you on that you were able to upgrade to OS6? Do you think if I upgrade using that carrier I will have any issues  with my carrier (AT&T)? Anything to be aware of before/during/after upgrading that may be a concern?

 

Thank you!

R

[ Edited ]

The OS is the same regardless of the carrier that approves it.

 

the Vendor/XML file has carrier info so normally users can not upgrade unless you know how to delete it.

 

AT&T might not support this OS and ask you to downgrade to a supported OS if you have issues.

 

 

just a heads up

 

Older apps transfered to the device with Device switcher or upgraded to OS 6 can cause issue if not compatable with OS 6. On device go to Options, Device, Application Management is a great way to see what your apps are doing with your CPU usage on #Torch. Just slide top bar to CPU and see what is going on. Also touch the CPU menu to see other time variables. I found out that an app was eating away CPU cycles on mine
