Re: Pearl 8100 New Software

Just install the latest. Make sure you install both the Desktop and Device Software.

The device software keeps your berry up to date. It will either be 4.2 or 4.3 depending on your carrier.

 

There's also a mythical 4.5/4.6 OS that many hope may be released during WES starting today.

You can transfer them to your pc/laptop using your usb cable or remove your sd card and use a card reader.
