Default Strange failed attempt to unlock Zen in Rogers .284

I got my new 8700 today. (Problem with the microphone on the old one was covered by warranty.)

So I decided to be intrepid and edit the blackberry.alx file in the Rogers version of .284. I was careful, followed jibi's instructions, and was quite sure I did it right. But when I went to load, it refused me access saying that the browser could not be installed because net.rim.blackberry.xml was missing.

So I installed Bharti instead with jibi's blackberry.alx file. All is fine (but perhaps for the Hindi radio stacks).

I had previously installed the Rogers .284 successfully without editing the blackberry.alx file as part of the warranty testing on the old unit before I sent it back. So... I wonder what went wrong in my edit to unlock Zen that would cause this crucial file to be missing?
