OS upgrade and s/w platform.

Hi,

 

Is OS upgrade dependant on what plaform you are on?

I am running v 4.2.0.64 platform 2.2.0.37.

 

Will I be able to update to the latest version 4.5?

 

Is there anyway I can update the software platform?

 

Regards,

Re: OS upgrade and s/w platform.

You can upgrade the device OS direct to the latest release for the 8100 model.

 

Here is a link to the download and specific upgrade directions:

Do a backup of your device FIRST, using Desktop Manager.

Re: OS upgrade and s/w platform.

Will try this now.

Currently downloading.

If the OS is not platform dependent, why does the apploader on the desktop application not detect the upgrade?

also Can I use the application provided by my current service provider (not my phone provider and my ex-service provider which was T-mobile)

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=BD4C9AB730F5513206B999EC0D90D1FB

i.e Can I use this OS that I already downloaded and will the install procedure be the same?

Re: OS upgrade and s/w platform.

Hi JSanders,

 

Thanks this worked. I downloaded the Airtel version though.

 

Just curious, as to why my phone and apps still say T Mobile even though I have installed the Bharti Airtel version of the OS.

 

Everything works fine and I am really happy with the HTML mail, although the device is a bit slower than it was before.

 

Thanks again for the help.

Ajay
