Backing up your BB before editing
Q (user17601): What program and process do you use to extract the PRL from your BB. I can see PRL load in QPST, but no way to back up/save a PRL.
A (flipit): when you use QPST on the Berry, Read it, then save file, when you save file it saves 2 files. the one with rl0 extension is actlually a PRL, just rename it.
or use QXDM and send SPC then send
pr_list_rd 0 "C:\test.prl"
that command will read the PRL from the phone and save it to the C Drive with a name of test.prl. Rename the PRL to what it is. On a berry, #4357* TALK will show you the version of the PRL.
