One is the package version of the Handheld Software, and the other refers to the Application version that it places onto the device. Then there is also a Playform version. The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

It's just RIM's way of labeling their incremental releases.

How to reformat this phone


The preferred method for removing IT policy is to update yourdevice to OS 4.5 or higher (if possible) and use JL_Cmder's "resettofactory" command or the resettofactory command that is included in Loader.exe that installs with Desktop Manager (or any BB OS) to remove ALL IT policy, Firewall restrictions and Application Permission settings. After you've upgraded to OS 4.5 or higher, simply backup the device using Desktop Manager, close Desktop Manager, then run JL_Cmder and execute the "resettofactory" command or if you don't have JL_Cmder, just do the following:

1. Go to Start >Run and type CMD (you can also find the command prompt in Programs >Accessories.)

A command box will open.

2. Type the following exactly including spaces: cd c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader

You should now see that path followed by the cursor.

3. Now type: loader.exe/resettofactory


After using JL_Cmder or the cmd prompt method above, the device will do a security wipe of the device; (meaning wipe your data but leave the OS, DO NOT use the "Wipe" command in JL_Cmder) then reboot leaving the OS, 3rd party apps but no data AND, best of all, NO IT policy whatsoever. When you're done, simply restore your backupand you're good to go with no policy or locked firewall. thumbs_up.gif You can downgrade back to the old OS if you desire, too

It plays movies for me, but not the games.


If still on warranty, use your warranty :)

If not try to do what i did.

I had exactly the same problem. I managed to fix it by executing so called Rebuild Database operation.

I followed these instructions;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu

Plug the phone into the computer after you have opened Blackberry Desktop Manager and one the phone is connected and it registers a pin on the bottom of the Desktop Manager software select application loader then choose update software.

Then pick the 4.5 or 4.6 os you may need to downgrade thats ok.

If desktop manager will not recognize your phone then download JL commander and select the wipe option then try the steps above.

Curve 8310


Dropping calls and rebooting, or the screen going black and needing to have the battery removed and reinserted before it will boot up and work again is a known problem with this model.

It would seem that the unit can use an operating system (OS) upgrade. If you've owned this unit for a long time and have never upgraded the OS, try upgrading it to see if the problem gets resolved.

Go to your service provider's internet site...AT&T, Verizon, ROGERS, BELL etc and look for the support tab for your device...in this case BlackBerry. Surf to the model and see if they have an upgrade to the OS. You can check what your version is by clicking on the OPTIONS (wrench) icon and clicking on ABOUT. You will see the model of your device and a number following a v, ie v4.6.0.282. If your version is older, you'll need to upgrade the device via the DESKTOP MANAGER application that came with the unit when you bought it...or pull the application down from your service provider.

First download and install the updated version on your pc. Next, run the desktop manager application. Connect your BlackBerry via the USB cable to your pc...the desktop manager application should scan the device and notify you that the OS can be upgraded. Follow the prompts to update the OS.

Caution though. If you are not comfortable performing the upgrade, you should be able to call your service provider's customer assistance line and have them walk you through the procedure over the phone.

Good-luck.

Cheers!

How do i upgrade the OS of eee PC 900A to a netbook ubuntu 9.10?


download the image of ubuntu put it on a stick here you have two option uninstal the old OS or update if you want to update:
To upgrade from Ubuntu 9.04 on a desktop system, press Alt+F2 and type in "update-manager -d" (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release '9.10' is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.

My ps3 wont play my new games anymore after my latest system update when i went online. these games were playing b4 and play on other ps3s and all other games play still no prob. how can i reset my os...


you need to find the firmware you had before the update and downgrade it again, you can perform the downgrade using a cd with firmware on it, make sure you have a look on the sony website for instructions on performing a manual upgrade (should be the same process as downgrade)
