Updating blackberry pearl

6854933580_2c8b688306_z

I have tried to brick various Black Berry devices (reset, remove battery and disconnect cable connection during firmware installation process) and I never suceeded in doing so.

I was always able to recover the devices even when they only had a flashing red LED and wouldn't boot up anymore.

Please consider upgrading to a newer device by logging in to My Verizon, or visit the Black Berry site for support or the Verizon Community where you can post your question to find answers.

Man, I want 4.2 on my 8700 or I want Cingular to release a Pearl!I think RIM made the firmware update process quite fail-safe.The only Black Berry I did not try to brick is my Black Berry Pearl 8100 as I have currently only one ;-) I am a Cingular customer in the US and I really dislike most of the preinstalled BB themes (7130g). javaloader -u load *RIM Wireless Handheld Java Loader Copyright 2001-2005 Research In Motion Limited Connecting to device...I also edited the Black file and removed the _vendor tag from the Vodafone Today theme.I think this is the most elegant and functional theme for the Black Berry.Toasting a new firmware on a mobile phone always make me nervous.
