Fix color depth and get bigger keys!
You may have noticed that your color depth is off with the release of .99 and higher. But there is an easy fix for this AS WELL as bringing back the larger keyboard to make it easier to type. How do you do this? Just follow the simple procedure below.
- 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-v184.108.40.206_P220.127.116.11\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.

Do we overwrite what is already in the CDMA folder or is this going to be an additional file in the CDMA folder?
You want to overwrite it. Make sure when you load loader.exe from your APPLOADER folder you click the downgrade option.

Thanks for the new fourm that is dedicated to the "dark" side of the berry. the leaked BETAS.
Here's to the Software getting better faster with the storm.

Its actually aggravating me because the Bold users just got 2 leaks YESTERDAY!! and us storm lovers are just 'hearin' about the cool new feature that the OS for the storm has. GR!! My friend sent me a screenshot of his OS which is running .125. Good to see you over here
Hey got a question... I downloaded the new .109 OS.. I am upgrading from .75
I ran the instal and it told me to restart the CPU... SO I did... and im not sure where to go now. I went to the Application loader in BB Manager and clicked Updates but i didnt see the new OS in the Updates. I think i just missed a simple step but im not sure.
Do I reinstall the OS on my PC? Where did it gooooooooo????? lol
Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you could.
Thanx in Advance!
The Slinger is in town!
What operating system are you using XP or Vista

For some reason I cannot extract it. I am downloading winzip. Is that what I need or did I do something wrong when downloading the RAR? Can someone help....thanks.

fix color and keyboard
I have been able to follow most of the directions given. My issue is that when I double click the apploader wizard comes on (attched screen shot) and from there I don't know what to do. Please help.
You want to replace the system files with the older, the reason for this is you are using an older sfi file.

I figured it out...it only is green when you use the keyboard in the "browser"..not in other applications

Reason: Answer my own question
The Go button is only in the browser, the arrow key is in everything else

Guys!, what is color depth, and how do i fix my signal, it sucks with the .114+113 Java OS?..
Well, the color depth we are referring to is after .90 release, the leaks have been lacking in the color department with images. Pictures are not as crisp or clear as they were. If you put the .90 CMDA folder (which is the stf file) you will get that color depth back, AS WELL as the larger keyboard that was loaded with that leak AND your signal will be better because the .90 radio code was the best. All three of those problems are in that .90 stf file.
