Hi and Welcome to the Community!
I recommend you first prepare with these steps:
Make sure you have a current and complete backup of your BB...you can find complete instructions via the link in my auto-sig below. In your situation, this is moot.
2) Uninstall, from your PC, any BB OS packages
3) Make sure you have the BB Desktop Software already installed
4) Download and install, to your PC, the BB OS package you desire:
5) Delete, on your PC, all copies of VENDOR.XML...there will be at least one, and perhaps 2, and they will be located in or similarly to (it changes based on your Windows version) these folders:
Now, use these tricks:
If any suggest an update website, please substitute the Desktop Software and/or LOADER.EXE.
Good luck and let us know!

The problem i find is that the bb suit no longer has the apploader folder no where can i find it And all resolutions pointed to the apploader in the versions like 4.3 and lower.
But it has got to the point where it can no longer be picked up by any device so ive had to get the ic replaced on the phone.
