BB Handheld software 4.6

Hi!

 

I don't know if this is the best place to post this question, but is there any place I can get BB handheld software 4.6? I want to upgrade my BB 8310 and 8100 to OS 4.6 to take advantage of some features appeared in JDE 4.6 ...

 

Best regards!

Re: BB Handheld software 4.6

You should really look to your carrier's site for OS Levels that they have approved for use on your phone.  If it is not available from your carrier, you are possibly voiding warranty and breaking terms and conditions for use of your phone.

 

You might find the following link useful.

Regarding your specific question, I have not heard anything from Rim that suggests that 4.6 will be available for anything but the Bold.  However I don't know about the Javelin and the Storm is 4.7.  From memory, they did announce that they would be supplying 4.5 for all phones released after and including the 8700 (i.e. all Pearls, 8700s, 8800 and Curves), but they don't control whether the Carriers release the software. 

 

So in your case, the highest you can go, as far as I know, is 4.5.  Whether you can get there "legally and supported" or not is another question.

Pete is correct, there is no 4.6 OS for the Curve.

Re: BB Handheld software 4.6

Hi!

 

Thanks for the response!

If there is no handheld software, what's the use having the JDE? Only for emulator??? How can I benefit from JDE 4.6 changes?

Re: BB Handheld software 4.6

The JDE is to develop software for the Bold device, which runs 4.6.

 

Am I missing something?  :smileyhappy:
