    hey guys! i just got a blackberry pearl from my sister yesterday i believe it's 8100 and... yeah!
    i wanted to update it and such but had no ideas what to do.
    so i first started with a theme.
    (i can only use my laptop and usb, i still don't get this ota thing)
    but then it didn't show up on my themes!
    so i looked and it said it was software intended for 4.2.1
    and mine was 4.2.0.somethingsomething
    so i upgraded it into 4.2.1.107!
    os! (what's an os?)
    but then i had to download the desktop manager then this weird media manager
    and now i can't even find the pictures in my sd card on my bb!

    i'm pretty confused right now. specially since there's a 4.5 os?
    ...
    so let's say i was to wipe clean my handheld.
    any tips?
