Default How Do I Go Back To 461 Software?

Please Login to Remove!

i loaded the latest software in the stickies here but dont like it, my 9780 is locking up and freezing....i want to go back to the 461 software that was working fine....

i downloaded the 461 again but when i try to install it, it says no actions are required or something....is this because i already have a newer version on the phone?

do i need to do a complete wipe?

Make sure you delete the latest OS from your computer first, then download and install 461. How do I downgrade the OS on my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

You might have to tell Desktop Manager NOT to go online and search for an update. If it does that and finds something more recent it will attempt to override .461 in favor of the more recent version.

Don't use desktop manager to load the OS, just go to the loader files and double click Loader.exe...

Did you delete ALL the instances of the vendor.xml file?
