You need to delete the vendor.xml file to reinstall BBM 4.6.

Install the BBM5 with the attached zip file contents. Just unrar/unzip the directory items. Copy the .alx file C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8900-v4.6.1.250_P4.2.0.113 (ignore my OS version; your one might different) and all the .cod files to the following directory and replace all the files if you get the prompt- copy all the .cod file from BBM 5 folder to this C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8900-v4.6.1.250_P4.2.0.113\Java.

Once you are done this . Plug in the USB on your PC connect your BB run the loader.exe (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader) NOT your DM. Run the loader.exe double click next and update the Phone and reboot and Enjoy the new BBM 5.

Download the file from here- megauploaddotcom/?d=1KCX8SPK

replace the * with "t"

i really like the upgrade it added lots of features that make it a lot easier to use the interface is better all around i would say the additional features made the DL and all the trouble of installing it worth it.
