Are you saying that Desktop Manager does not find an OS for you to load?
When I turn on the phone it says Alltel, I am trying to load the OS 4.5 from Verizon onto a 8830 that is from Alltel. So when it boots up, it says "Verizon" instead of Alltel.
I did this once before with a Verizon 8830, I bought it on ebay. Downloaded the Alltel branded ROM from RIM, and installed it, deleted the vendor.xml file. Then when I plugged in the phone it saw the OS, and updated the phone. When it was all done, it no longer said Alltel, at boot up, it said "verizon"
that is exactly what i am trying to do but with alltel hardware to verizon software.
I am trying to figure out why it won't work anymore. Or of the Verizon 4.5 that I got via the RIM redirect to Verizon is more 'secured'...
