Default Installing new OS on 8130

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I was having 523 errors on the BB 8130. As a result, I wiped clean my OS by following the following steps:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Make sure you have the latest version of Desktop Manager installed.
BlackBerry - Desktop Software - BlackBerry Desktop Software at BlackBerry.com
2. Download the above file to the PC then install it to the PC by running the file you downloaded.
3. Locate the vendor.xml file and delete it. It's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
4. Plug in BB and Open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.
The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization."
If you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to DM again and run application loader again and it should load the OS to the device.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I then downloaded the latest 8130 software
Package Version: 4.3.0.203
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
And followed the following steps to re-install a new OS.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Install the desktop software.
2. Install the handheld software. (If it is a non Vendor software.. exp. T-Mobile. search and delete the "vendor.xml" file.)
3. Pull the battery out of your device.
4. With the battery out connect the device to the computer.
5. Go to Options and select "connection settings"
6. Select USB PIN this may take a few moments since there is no battery in the device. you might even have to select detect device in some rare cases.
7. Select the application loader icon.
8. Select all software you want installed.
9. Proceed to the end portion untill you see the "Finish" button.
10. Very IMPORTANT. do not hit the finish button, instead select the ADVANCED button.
11. Make sure both boxes are checked.
12. Proceed until it asks you if you want to automatically back up and restore. Select DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY BACK UP MY HANDHELD.
13. Once the process starts. take care not to bump out the cord and re-insert the battery. Again on some rare occasions you might have to wait until it finishes saying connect to insert the battery.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
This did not work for me. Can anyone provide a correct method to installing new OS on the 8130.

Thank you
Paul

Put the battery back in, connect it via usb, and open DM. If not prompted to upgrade, run Apploader, and it should install the OS for you.

I ran it again today, looks like I just wasn't giving it enough time to finish installing the new OS. Previously is was giving me the hourglass of doom and I was pulling out too soon. Thanks for the help!
