Get ahold of a program called JL_CMDER - search for it on this forum. It contains a program that will totally wipe out the OS, applications and data.

Download the latest version of the 8700 handheld code from Cingular. Or any other version you'd like to install. Execute the downloaded program.

Locate and Delete VENDOR.XML on your PC C: Drive

Restart Desktop Manager - the OS should load

Be patient - the load/restart will take 20-30 minutes.

Good luck!

** FORGET EVERYTHING THAT I SAID **

The instructions I gave you were for a PC. It is how you reload the OS on the BlackBerry. You have a Mac. I can't help you. I am moving this to the Mac Users Corner where the Mac folks may be able to help.
