Unable to update OS on 8820
i've followed all the steps, but then it says my blackberry doesn't need to be updated.
i'm running 220.127.116.11 (platform 18.104.22.168), which is not the current os. so obviously it isn't right.
Did you follow the steps to the letter?
In summary -
download the handheld OS
install it onto your PC
locate and delete VENDOR.XML on your PC C: drive
connect your BB and start Desktop Manager
And what error message are you getting?
What version of the OS did you download?
Try using the loader.exe file process rather than Desktop Manager. See the directions above in the Sticky Note for your model.
Follow them exactly as written.
i'm on windows 7; that loader.exe file doesn't work.
i uninstalled everything, downloaded again, still doesn't work.
this is what i get:
I'll second JSanders - use the loader.exe you'll find in the Apploader folder. Just avoid DM altogether and see what happens.
Search your drive for vendor.xml file as it may be some place else in windows 7.
DM 4.7 redownloads the vendor.xml .... so yeah, don't use DM and don't use a Beta OS to load something so important. Use apploader and find a friend with XP.
i'm installing using vista now, and it still does not work. i tried updating through loader.exe, though under current version and available version, the same versions of the OS are listed-- i would think under available version, the newer one would be listed. regardless, this pos still does not work. i've updated the OS many times before, and have never had an issue!
What model BB do you have? Double check in Options / About.
Are you 100% sure you have downloaded the correct OS for your BlackBerry.
You must install the version of the OS specifically made for your model BB.
BB 8820 v. 22.214.171.124
It's supposed to upgrade to 126.96.36.199
I downloaded it from here: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...5-0-139-a.html
Deleted the vendor file, running vista, but still no luck.
Is my BB defective now?
No, I don't think the BB is defective.
Where are you loading "Loader" from - I don't recall seeing "current version and available version" when using Loader.exe (I used it earlier this evening).
Let's rerun the steps.
Download the OS (you are downloading 188.8.131.52, which is the application version)
Install the OS onto your PC
Locate and delete ALL COPIES of VENDOR.XML on your PC C: drive
Connect your BB to your PC - make sure Desktop Manager is NOT started
Go into c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and run loader
If you click on details > modules, it says it there.
So if you look in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\shared\loader files
how many directories do you see and what are they called?
Well, that's why it isn't loading. There is nothing to load.
Find the handheld OS file that you downloaded onto your PC. Right mouse click on it and Run as Administrator. It HAS to be installed to the LOADER FILES folder.
this is weird
the previous version by IndoStat (184.108.40.206) installed without any problems.
the current version by t-mobile (220.127.116.11) doesn't work for me, oddly.
i give up. lol i'll just stick with the indostat version.
Not sure how it installed as there is no shared\loader files folder.
there is now when i uninstalled tmobile and put indostat.
anyway thanks for your help
Try and redownload the T-Mobile version; sounds like it didn't download and install properly.
