8100 Color Pearl

by rparker9 / August 21, 2009 9:39 PM PDT

I have one of the first BB 8100s. I had down loaded a program called Color Pearl - was cool - the Pearl roller ball changed color. That phone broke and I had AT&T send me a replacement. I cann't get Color Pearl to operate on this 'new' phone...any ideas? I'm running 4.5 on it...

Is the new phone AT&T sent you still a Pearl? Only the trackball on BlackBerry Pearl models can change colour. Trackball on other BlackBerry models cannot due to hardware limitation.

Yes I did check that - it is a BB Pearl 8100, Smartphone (EDGE), v4.5.0.110 (Platform 2.7.0.90).

Hi! You problem is the operating system. OS 4.5 is very new, only a couple of months old. And Color Pearl does not support it yet. The old BlackBerry you had must had the old operating system (either OS 4.1 or 4.2) unless you have installed the new one.

It is possible to downgrade the operating system if you really want to. But OS 4.5 has brought out a lot of improvement and it is probably worth to keep.

OK thanks. I think I can live w/o it for now. Maybe the Color Pearl program will catch up before too long.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
