i did a clean wipe on the phone and it took it back to the original os 188.8.131.52. i had 4.5.33 on it i think and i wanted to go to the 4.5.51 os, now it won't, JL Cmdr won't work on my Vista for some reason, not sure why. i used to be able to upgrade and downgrade, now my phone won't do it anymore. no error msgs.
Are you using a new version of the desktop manager? When I downgraded my 8830 it a first did not see the older version. But then I clicked on applications loader icon, then start under update appications. It then showed the older OS version and would downgrade. One more thing, you could first go into control panel, add remove programs and delete any other versions of the device OS you see there, other than the one you want to use. Make sure vendor.vml is deleted, then re-start the desktop software and try it again.
Politicians are a lot like diapers and they should be changed often and for the very same reason. Visit www.fairtax.org
If the vendor.xml file is deleted (check this because it installs with every installation of an OS or DM) then DM will load the latest version of the OS installed on the PC for a given model. If you want to downgrade, simply uninstall any newer versions using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and then run application loader.
thank you all for the tips, but i'm still not able to load os 4.2 nor 4.5, i uninstalled everything and reinstalled, deleted the vendor.xml, nothing worked. not sure what's going on here, but i got the feeling that my phone is dying. Thank you all.
i wipe my BB with JL_cmder. i follow the steps, but when i start the desktop manager it shows " disconnected-bb desktop manager" click on " application loader" on connection shows "usb-pin" and the pin #. on the following screen is ghosted. cannot load the os to the BB.
This is the msg that i got after i used the manual way to reload OS ( the blackberry desktop software doesn't have blackberry device software for the device that you have connected to the computer. Contact your wireless service provider or system admin. )
now, i know it's not a good idea to call alltel because i know more than most of their DTS group. and i'm the Admin of this system. any more ideas my people? thanks.
