Re: Note to those trying to downgrade from beta 2.0

[ Edited ]

I've tried waiting the 24 hours and i've managed to get to the repair stage, however a pop up comes up during this process saying that i need at least 600mb of space on my computer, then stops the process.

http://cl.ly/1R3m2m3j3Q073N2j240K

I'm using a mac and i have over 100gb of space, PLEASE advise me how to complete this.

 

I did do a back up when before I upgraded and my 24 hours have passed. I've tried everything on your instructions post

 Please help!

 

Thanks in advance,

Re: Note to those trying to downgrade from beta 2.0

I'm having the same issue. My Mac is failing to extract the software image file and says I need at least 600MB of extra space. I have 200GB+ of space. Now, When I first attempted to downgrade, I lost connection and had to force quit Desktop Manager. 

 

I'm thinking that a partial download is stored somewhere on the mac and instead of re-downloading, it continually tries to open up the partially downloaded file. 

 

Thoughts?

Re: Note to those trying to downgrade from beta 2.0

The files are saved in tmp folder which is hidden.

 

To access the tmp folder do the following:

 

Open terminal and type cd ../.. and enter this will bring you to the root directory

Then type cd tmp and enter

Then type ls -al and enter and it will display all of the tmp files

 

To delete a file type rm and the file name

Re: Note to those trying to downgrade from beta 2.0

That is not working for me, says 'unkown'.

Is there any other way of doing it?

Re: Note to those trying to downgrade from beta 2.0

I went into my tmp folder and removed all the files and directories in there. This error is still occuring when I attempt to downgrade. Any other thoughts?

Re: Note to those trying to downgrade from beta 2.0

Hello,

 

We will need to review the Mac DTS logs for this issue.  Please log this issue in the developer issue tracker and upload both the Mac Desktop and OS/X system logs. 

 

https://www.blackberry.com/jira/secure/Dashboard.jspa

 

The Mac Desktop logs can be found at <current user>/Library/Application Support/BlackBerryDesktop/logs/DTM-<date>.log

*** If you are using OS/X Lion the library folder may be hidden, running the command 'chflags nohidden ~/Library/' from terminal will cause the Library folder to be shown within Finder

 

The system.log can be obtained from the console application.

Re: Note to those trying to downgrade from beta 2.0

I fixed it! The partial file is location at <current user>/Library/Application Support/BlackBerryDesktop/Device Applications/<some long alpha numeric id folder>/qcfm.os.desktop.factory...signed.bar

Deleting this file fixes the issue.
