Re: upgrade os 5 in my 8520 curve

Hi ashokbhutiya

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

You can try a manual update to see if that allows , try those steps but remember as you don't have an active BlackBerry data plan so you have to disconnect all Internet connection and cables from that PC that you will use after downloading that OS pack or after step 3.Or loader will not allow you the update also have to delete all VENDOR . XML files .

 

1.Locate your Carrier and Download the OS you desire from here  BlackBerry Software Download Site

  • (make sure you are downloading for the same model as you have )

 

2. Now Double Click  the file that you Downloaded to Install it on your PC

 

3. Download and install the latest BlackBerry desktop software from here BlackBerry desktop software

  • Then using desktop software perform your full backup of your device.

  

4.Search your C: drive for Vendor.xml and delete them, there may be one or two vendor.xml ( On your Pc change your folders option to show hidden files/folders ) :

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
  • C:\Users\Windows UserName\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

 

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

 

      Upgrade will continue then After Installation of New OS restore your backup using BlackBerry desktop

Software.

Hi askok

 

 

                How many Vendor .XML files you have found ? On your PC have you changed your Folder Options to Show Hidden Files ? you must delete each and every VENDOR .XML files otherwise it may not allow you to Update .

 

Also if you have those Setup files ( OS pack and Desktop Software )  then uninstall both Desktop Software and also the OS file from your PC then reinstall then again but don't connect to Internet while doing these process.then start all over again.
