Noobie here. What benefits do you get by updating your OS? Looks like I am running 220.127.116.11 Can I update this? How do I do that and which version should I use? Where can I get these updated OS? I also want the L Theme and new themes. Where is the BEST site to get all of the goodies?? PLEASE HELP
If this is your first blackberry (and it may not be, since your post sounds like you've had some experience), then I'd strongly encourage you to use it for a week or so and get familiar with how it works before you start changing it. It'll be easier, and you'll better appreciate the differences. If you've owned bb's before, then go ahead.
Obviously it depends on your internet connection speed, but no, not an hour normally with any kind of high speed: DSL, cable modem, etc.
I think you may have gotten some bad advice. I looked at the link you were sent in post #6, and even though it is titled upgrade your blackberry OS, the instructions it's giving appear to be for updating the desktop software. That's not the same thing. Take a look at this link:
If CRC would follow the explicit directions posted in the link to the 8100 OS, all will be fine. The directions in that link are exact and fool-proof. So, maybe he is updating his DM before proceeding with the OS upgrade?
CRC: it's probably not out of your league, but you did get too many sets of instructions. Just follow the ones jsanders sent you in post #2. You can use the John Clark procedure to do the same thing, but jsanders' instructions are tailored for you.
Sorry guys for all the questions and thank you so much for all of your help. I knew I could count on you all. I FINALLY updated the DM software and I will attempt to install the OS later tonight. Again thanks so much. I will let you guys know how it goes.
