Two days back I downloaded the OS 4.5 for my 8300 Curve. Now every where i am reading that Docstogo comes free with the 4.5 OS but I dont have it. I did not get that application with my Upgrade to 4.5 OS is there anything I am missing here Please help. Thankx.

It seems that often that box is not checked in the App Loader during install and the Docs to Go is not installed.
You may need to use Desktop Manager (on the same PC used to install the OS) to install the application.

Has anyone been to www.blackberry.com
lately?....I just noticed this so excuse me if I'm the only one on the late bus. It looks as if 4.5 OS is available as for all devices regardless of carrier...someone please correct me if I'm wrong....does this mean you will no longer have to delete the "vendor " file when upgrading?????...the insturctions say to sipmply plug in your berry via usb and clik "upgrade".....check the link and tell me what you think?

OK, now I'm all confused. The last thing I had read was that BB OS 220.127.116.11 was
the latest properly operating OS including cleaning up the camera problem. At
least that seems to be the way it's working out for me. I don't seem to have any
problems with Ver18.104.22.168 with the single exception that the media file directorys
have been moved around some and now all those preloaded silly cheap caller I.D.
icons are now missing. I don't mind those two small issues. Everything else seems
to work fine. Would there be some technical reason I'd need to step back to the
4.5.037? (FYI, I'm on Cingular/AT&T)

Do Not Install This "3rd Party" Os Because You Will Have Problems, I Tried It And Found Out That I Made A Huge Mistake, It Was Horriable To Say The Least, It Just Won't Work, Do Yourself A Favor And Wait Until At&t Comes Out With Their Own Version.
I Know I'm Typing In Caps Because I'm Shouting Right Now.
Again, It Just Will Not Work As It Should Without The Correct Os.
Man Do I Have Problems To Correct Now.

Sorry you had such bad luck. People install operating systems from other carriers all the time and most have no issue. Yours could be nothing more than a corrupt file. You might give another version a try and see if that fixs your issue and if it doesnt just revert to your original. As far as it will not work. Yes it will and most times much better so give a reinstall a chance and I am sure you will change your mind if that corrects whatever issues you are having. Did you follow all the steps like deleting vendor.xml resending service books...etc?

Try launching the Application Loader from within the RIM folder.
Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader. There's an executable called Loader. Double click that and see if it will do the upgrade.

tried that... all it shows is a few themes i downloaded last night, but those only work on 4.5 no os upgrade... i just uninstalled and reinstalled but same problem... deleted the vndr.xml on the new install too btw... there has got to be something stupid that i missed

Normally this is caused when the user downloads but does not install the new operating system. After you Dl'd the application, did you then launch it to install on your desktop? Check this by looking at add/remove programs in your windows control panel and see if the new device software shows up. You may also want to un-install any older versions while you are there. Once the new OS is installed, you will want to go back and delete the vendor file again.
The other possibility is that you choose a OS not for your SPECIFIC device.
and 8310 OS will not work on an 8320 for example.

i launched the file from desktop per the instructions... i got the os from bb's site specific for the 8330 version 4.5... checked add/remove programs, both the dm version 4.7 and os version 4.5 show as separate icons... not sure what else to do
thanks for the help so far...
i just checked and i dl'd the 8300 os... i can't find the 8330 os... any ideas where i can dl this os?... thanks...

roma, you edited your last post saying you figured out your folly. Did you find the right OS for your device? If not, go here.

Good to hear you solved the issue. When the App Loader does not recognize an upgrade it is pretty much always one of the big 3....
1. Operating System not installed on the desktop.
2. Vendor file not deleted
3. Incorrect Operating System.
