There are no other tips needed. if this doesn't work for you than you did something wrong. when you delete vendor.xml you should also remove the vendor ID= lines from the Blackberry.alx file. Once you do this loader.exe will work.
The desktop manager doesn't allow me to upgrade to 5.0 either, loader.exe has no such check. If loader.exe isn't finding the 5.0 software then you simply don't have blackberry.alx correct
