This method does not need a BIS plan.
Note: Important to follow this mini guide by the numbers:

1:
download and downgrade desktop manager to any version from 4.7 till 5.0.1, version 6 will not work.

2:
install your chosen OS.

3:
delete vendor.xml

4:
run DM 4/5 and update your device, when prompted choose the OS you downloaded, click next and you get an error, do NOT close the DM software,
leave it open.

5:
browse to loader.exe, run it, now you will see your OS selected with some other options, set to your preferences and install!

6:
Enjoy your new OS!

I have used this method on an 8310, 8520 and 9000 with no problems.

Hope this helps you out and anyone else having issues.
