    It's the same as updating the OS on any other BB. I know there are tons of threads that cover this. In a nutshell:

    1. Install the handheld software on your PC.
    2. Close Desktop Manager.
    3. Delete vendor.xml.
    4. Open Desktop Manager.
    5. Connect your BB. DM should automatically kick off the update process. If not, open up the App Loader and it should start the update process.
    6. Pull the battery.
    7. Resend your BIS service books. If you're on BES you'll need to perform an Enterprise Activation.

    Do I delete the file before I sync it?

    Re: Instructions for loading 4.2 on T-mobile phone?

    This will be my first time upgrading the OS. Will I have to reinstall all of my third party apps? I am assuming I can not use the back up and restore since the os will be different?
    Any suggestions where to download the 4.2 app?

    I found the os on the ATT website.

    I'm not sure that you won't loose your 3rd party apps, but the backup/restore will work just fine for every thing else.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you everyone. I am up and running without any issues. I knew the 4.2 had media and was hoping that it could play video. I guess it only supports ringtones and pictures.
