    This is not working for me. I'm using DM 4.2 /8700c. I'm having the same symptoms as jrok. Removed the vendor.xml file, opened DM and it didn't pick up the 4.2 OS at all. Just reloaded 4.1

    Any ideas, I'm going to completely wipe it and try again.

    Make sure you remove the vendor.xml file from the app loader folder.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~abaqueen, I have the 8700c also. I downloaded 4.2 and then installed it on the PC. Then went to delete the xml file as shown earlier in this thread. After that I connected the BB to my DM and a few minutes later it saw the update and installed. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but try upgrading your DM to 4.2 as well.

    Not sure why but from the application loader I selected Add when I browsed to the AppLoader folder none of the files showed up so from the pc I search for the .alx files for the 8.2 copied and pasted them to the same location and tried the Add again and this time the 4.2 files appeared so I'm waiting for device initialization and restore, I'm sure it will be fine. Thank you for quick responses!

    I am a newb and do not understand what this tcp settings actually does. Could somebody explain this.

    The new OS is very smooth and it seems faster overall.

    Worked like a charm on my 8700C. Not one problem with the install.

    Does this include the same media player that the pearl has?

    I have an 8700c - 4.2dm.
    I didn't wipe or do anything "special"...
    downloaded.
    ran the exe
    when the option came to run/start desk top manager - I first, deleted the vendor.xml file in the loader directory and then went back to the desktop prompt screen and pressed yes.
    and other then a few questions about backups (which I did), there was no other interaction before I had the 4.2 on my HH.
    did not wipe - did not uninstall,etc.

    Oh and hey if you currently have the 4.2 Desktop Manager with your new 4.2 Handheld OS, you can finally use Media Manager From the Desktop Manager

    Yes! I noticed this as well! I FINALLY have a way to get custom ring tones on my BB as an IT policy prevented me from ever being able to email them to myself and save them or to install OTA. This alone makes everything worth while!!!

    ...and make sure that DM is fully shut down when you go to delete vendor.xml. If it's open then close it and restart. Basically, DM needs to be started without vendor.xml in place.

    And don't be like me. Be sure to delete the vendor.xml AFTER running the OS file on your computer. I just wacked the file from last time I upgraded my BB and DM didn't do anything.
