I have been assisting people in OS updates on the BB for quite some time. I am not wrong on this. Deleting the vendor.xml works for installing this OS on ALL 8830's, including Verizon and I will continue to suggest people do so. If I leave it out then 200 people will post that they "installed the OS to the PC but when I connect it says no software installed for the device, etc." Verizon users are not the only ones installing this new OS.
As far as themes go, using javaloader takes longer and is more complicated for most people than editing the .alx file. The edited .alx file is the simplest and quickest way to add themes.
