Question Upgrading Bold BB OS with Desktop Manager 7

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I am using Desktop Manager version 4.7.0.32 and have a really annoying problem.

Whenever I try to upgrade my BlackBerry 9000 (Bold) OS, I install the OS to my local system, remove the 'Vendor' file and run DM. DM recognises the new OS in App Loader -> Update Software, but then when I select 'Next', it interrogates the Internet and says that there are no updates required.

I realised that it was searching my supplier's website (Vodafone) for the latest update and ignoring the locally installed OS so I did a check on this forum. I noted the need to remove the 'BlackBerry Automatic Update' feature and/or to deselect 'Check for software updates. I did this and the same thing happens, DM still interrogates the Internet.

I went around the houses so many times with this; Un-installing/re-installing DM 7 with the previously detailed options removed and then re-installing the BB OS locally all to no avail! I even removed everything from the 'Apploader' folder as recommended somewhere here before re-installed DM and the OS again but no change.

In frustration, I pulled my cat6 network cable from the system and then tried and lo and behold it recognised my locally installed BB OS and updated it okay.

Is there any way to stop DM 7 from interrogating the Internet for a BB OS instead of a locally installed one without disconnecting from the Internet?

BTW, I have checked the BB FAQ linked to from here; that is how I knew to un-install the BB automatic Update feature.


Surely, there must be loads of people who have had my issues?


Thanks for any help you can provide.


Rich (Flipping frustrated!).

Hi. I am still having this issue; I have just downloaded and locally installed the new DoCoMo release and Desktop Manager interrogates the Internet for a new release. Before trying to install to my Bold I searched for all 'vendor.xml' files, hidden versions too. The only one found was the one in the 'Apploader' folder which I removed prior to attempting the install.

I then pulled my network cable again and DM installed the new build.

Anyone any ideas?
Maybe this release of DM is hard coded to search for Internet based carrier releases and there is no way to stop this?

Surely others must have this issue?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Rich.
