Please make it a point to follow the instructions STEP-BY-STEP. Failure to do the this will result in errors. If you print it out then check off each point (DO NOT SKIP), then all should be fine. The instructions are very good on the links above.

are you using Desktop software version 4.7 to do the upgrade??

rachamphetamine 01-06-2009 12:31 AM

The OS is installed on your computer? And it's the software for the 8100, correct?

Bryan8100 01-06-2009 06:27 AM

yes and yes.

fiestito 01-06-2009 02:23 PM

I think your problem its the Desktop software 4.7, dont use that one for the upgrade, use the app loader (run the app in this pad: \Program Files\Common Files\Research and Motion\AppLoader\Loader.exe ). Theres an issue with desktop software 4.7, you should use the app loader for the upgrade.
