    Unable to install OS ... idiots guide needed

    Advertisement



    hi all
    i know theres a few posts about similiar issues but they've not helped so far. basically i installed a theme to my 8700g and ever since it's been in constant restart. i've downloaded a couple of os for the 8700 but there doesn't appear to be a specific one for my carrier (o2). i've installed them but i can't get DM to install it. i'd greatly appreciate your help here as i need to get this bad boy up and running asap.
    thanks in advance all

    you need to find the vendor.xml file on your pc and delete it
    this is after you install the OS on your PC.

    just performed a windows search and it can't find anything for vendor or vendor.xml ... could it be because i have 8100 os installed on my pc?

    Did you install the OS after downloading the program from RIM?

    Not DM, the OS - when you download it from RIM or your provider you get an installtion program. You have to run it and install the OS on your PC. Then you delete the vendor.xml - which will not be there until you install the OS.
