    How do I update my OS?

    Advertisement



    I want to update my OS to Telstra. The OS that I currently have is v4.1.0.284 (Platform 2.0.0.120)

    I am on the 8700g from T-Mobile. I downloaded Telstra and install it but nothing happens. Am I missing a step or something?

    I have forgotten about that vendor file more often than I care to recall. I will pend hours wondering why it will not work.

    Delete the 'Vendor.xml' file ( C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader ) Or search your computer's hard drive for the "vendor.xml" file. Once you find it, delete it.

    Here is the thread on how to upgrade - this uses an older OS, but the idea is the same.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ okay, so far everything went bad. LoL I can't get IM+ to fully uninstall. I can't get yak-on to work or Opera. How do I go back to the old OS that my BB first had?

    First, did you set up you TCP after the new OS was loaded. Without that you would not be able to get those programs to connect. Let me find the TCP link...

    Here it is:

    If a program doesn't uninstall you just need to manually delete the modules related to it. Options - Advanced - Applications. From the menu click on Modules. Then carefully find the modules you need highlight them, select delete from the menu.
