Re: FW upgrade

Hi,

 

Please download & install latest firmware from www.BlackBerry.com under support section. Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager and connect your device with PC using USB cable.

 

Once BDM detect your handheld then it will prompt you to upgrade FW. Hope this will help you..!!

Re: FW upgrade

Hope you have installed the latest firmware::---

 

 

Further, Go to My Computer : C Drive > Programme files > Common files > Research In motion > App Loader > Loader.exe

 

Now Double click on loader.exe, it will Open a window and will prompt you to Re-install OS.

 

Note: I would suggest you to take complete backup before proceeding

Re: FW upgrade

At the same location in C:smileyvery-happy:rive > Pro* files > Common files > RIM > App Loader > Delete vendor.xml file.

 

Restart yoru machine & then try again. Better to try with BlackBerry Desktop Manager, as if you installed 7.1 firmware then it should detect it automatically.

 

Good luck
