Uninstall (from your PC) the firmware you don't want. Install (on your PC) the firmware you want. Wipe the device and then start DM.

Laurentio, this could be helpful to BlackBerry Glossary - BlackBerryFAQ

As well as, the whole FAQ site, and Stinsonddog's tips in my signature link.

Thanks Sanders, all OK now.
have formatted the device - removed the usb cable, installed the Rogers os (101) removed the vendor file then plugged the usb cable back. started the desktop manager which I haven't touched and all went perfect. less than 15 min later I was having my device back up and running better than ever before!
thank you all.


i jst love my BBerry!!!
