Exclamation Cannot reflash BB 9000 unlock?

Please Login to Remove!

I gave my old BB 9000 I purchased off of kijiji (Canadian classifieds) just over a year ago to my girlfriend (aren't I nice?). I plugged it into the computer and performed an os update through the user tools a long while back, and deleted the games (since I do not use them).

Now, that the thing belongs to my girlfriend, she wants the games back (since now she won't leave my 9000 alone because it has sudoku on it). Plugging into the computer and attempting to update it using the user tools isn't working. When you click on update, there is only an option to subscribe with your email, there is no advanced button on the bottom left like it should.

Also, in the applications tab, it ONLY shows 4 programs (MSN, Facebook, App World and Protect), doesn't even show OS and dependancies and other programs installed (my other 9000 can show everything installed, and has the option to re-install the os though the update screen)

My blackberry is locked to Rogers, while my old one (now the gfs) is unlocked, though used to come from an american carrier. Does that make a difference?

Download Desktop Manager from RIM( free) and then download the OS update for the carrier. Install both and it will update the OS. As for the games, those depend on the carrier load. Also most wont work without a full Blackberry Data plan if they are internet dependent.
