    People will try to tell you horror stories about this and that but as long as you download an operating system for your device and delete the vendor.xml you shouldn't have issues and should improve your device and not hurt it. If you are not comfortable don't do it. In the end it is up to you.

    The latest would be this one:

    The last few #'s are higher meaning it is a later version.

    After downloading the OS did you run it so it installed to your PC. Also what version of Desktop Manager are you using?

    Ok there are known issues with the 4.7 so try uninstalling it and the OS from the PC then going into c/program files/common file and deleting the research in motion folder. Reboot then download and install 4.6 and the Rodgers OS.

    Delete the vendor file and reboot again. Once back up go to c/program files/common files/research in motion/app loader and click on the loader file and see if that does it for you.

    I believe the loader file is part of the DM install and to have it work you need to install DM. If I am wrong someone will correct me.

    i am in the middle of downloading 4.6 and hopefully *fingers crossed* we'll have success this time. Anyone know why ATT doesnt offer 4.5 OS for their pearl but most other carriers do?

    Hopefully this does it for you and I would like to know that answer also. I read some where that a rep told someone it was because it was being phased out.
