This method does not need a BIS plan.
Note: Important to follow this mini guide by the numbers:
download and downgrade desktop manager to any version from 4.7 till 5.0.1, version 6 will not work.
install your chosen OS.
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.
browse to loader.exe, run it, now you will see your OS selected with some other options, set to your preferences and install!
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.
