Default 8707 to 8700

There seem to have been some issues about Desktop Manager not recognizing an update when connected.

If you wish to update, here's what you need to do.

Make sure that you have a version of the 8700 OS on your computer in the RIM Files...After you finish downloading and installing the 8707 OS, open it, and copy all of the files into the 8700 folder. It will ask if you want to replace the current files, and click yes.

Make sure that you have the vendor.xml file deleted, and restart desktop manager, it will now realize that there is an upgrade for the device.

I have been running it on my BB for about 18 hours now, and have yet to recieve any kind of issues with it.

Let me know if this helps.
