Re: update

Hello born4u

 

You can use that OS.Just follow the steps below:

 

You will need a PC, an internet connection, your BlackBerry Device and your device usb cable to implement all this.

This is how i upgrade my BlackBerry and ill make this simple and straight forward as possible.

 

1. Uninstall first any BlackBerry software that you previously installed on your PC, as it may and will conflict with the guide

2. Download your specific and latest BlackBerry device OS or any other official BlackBerry software download page and install it.

3. Download BlackBerry Desktop Manager and install it.

 

Note: If the OS that you are downloading is from your official carrier, skip step 4, if you got it from other carriers – read on brother.

 

4. Change your folders option to show hidden files/folders (Click My Computer > Organize > Folder and search options > View tab > click "Show hidden files, folders, and drives"

Search your C: drive for Vendor.xml and delete them, else you can look for the two vendor.xml manually thru

- Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and delete Vendor.xml. (If you are running 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader)

 

- On Windows Vista/7 navigate to C:\Users\YOUR_USER\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML (Where "YOUR_USER" is your username) – On Windows XP navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USER\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML (Where "YOUR_USER" is your username)

 

5. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. (If you are running 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader) double click Loader.exe.

 

 

Thanks.

Good luck!

Hello josuefunes,

 

While I am flattered by your plagiarism of my posts, please be very careful when you do so. For example, in this post, you have reversed steps 2 and 3...it is important to first install the Desktop Software, and after that then install the BB OS package. You also neglected to provide a link in step 2 to help this user find the official BB OS download portal:

Good luck!
