joshuav50, I've been trying to upgrade the last couple of days with plenty of issues myself. What I have found, in answer to your question, is that it will do that on mine as well. I have had to "re-install" the 4.5 update to get DM to recognize the "device update"; I think it has to do with some registry linking, but that's a whole other deal. I've found the vendor file pops up on a couple of occasions (comp restart, DM process restart, etc...), just keep an eye out for that, 'cause that seems to prevent it from seeing the "update" as well.
For everyone else, I've tried Vodafone d/l from Australia, d/l from US Cellular, both for the 8130, both 4.5 update, as well as the vodafone d/l from Germany for the '8100'. Each was installed/removed on separate occasions, so there was no overlap to interfere with the upgrade. Each one had to be installed twice, as I stated previously, I think due to some missing link-age... After the second install, DM (ver. 4.6) would recognize and prep for upgrade. Now the strange part: Upgrade starts, phone reboots, and the status is "Connecting Boot ROM". After phone completes the reboot process, the status window closes, and DM shows "fatal error occurred. please try again." Only I can't; it seems to affect the usb driver to the point that windows doesn't recognize the device is plugged in, and DM doesn't see it either. I have shortened a long process of re-loading DM, and clearing out the registry of erroneous values, but at this point, I'm giving up on the upgrade until Verizon comes out with something... unless someone else has had this problem?

there will be a folder/s listed by device number-OS. ensure the new OS folder is there and delete the old version. restart DTM. should work for you.

Ok, I have 22.214.171.124 on my Sprint 8330. NO ISSUES AT ALL!!! My question is, what it the newest version of 4.5 that is available, and what differences will it have from the .77 version? Is it worth upgrading again?
Sprint Tour 9630
OS 126.96.36.199 (Leaked)
