    - Download the file here.
    - The file is in a RAR format so you must extract it. Extract the file to your OS CDMA folder.

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9530-v4.7.0.109_P4.0.0.136\CDMA

    If you are running .106 then you would go into your .106 CDMA folder.

    Plug your phone in, run your loader.exe from APP loader folder and you will want to "DOWNGRADE" because you are using an older file. Click next then let your phone load and you are done.
    Does this work with .113?

    just to name a few



    Good job. Just wondering though. Is keyboard bigger then what .114 has to offer? Thats what Im running now with the MMS file switched and the Keypad file switched "assuming its the keypad for the phone" Are they considerded the same files? Should I attempt to try and change it?

    Im not sure what keyboard you are using, these are from .109. I would change only if you are having issues.

    The keyboards are portrait and landscape. They are the same ones from .109 if you are having issues then I would make the change. If you are not having any issues then I would not change. It is entirely up to you.

    your talking about the OP right, I don't see why not...just copying and pasting the cdma folder.
    Like anything, you never know what is compatable with what, I haven't tried it myself so it's one of those "at own risk" deals

    just do the two backups first

    importing .109 keyboard cods to .122/131 hybrid

    Can the two 109 keyboard cods contained in the .rar download (which is the subject of this thread) be added to the JAVA files for the .122/131 hybrid in place of the ones that are there? Will it crash the OS or will it enable the larger keyboard to be added? Also, I believe the instructions in this thread said add the two cods to the CDMA file and not the JAVA - is CDMA the correct place to add them if I am not changing the radio in the .122/131 hybrid (currently the .122 radio I believe).
    Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
    Cmatt

    Thanks Bakeradio and jlevy. Will do. May install .132 first then do it (assuming 109 keyboard is not in there).
    You guys are great
