can't upgrade the os?
i'm trying to upgrade to .210 but for some reason i can't get my bold to upgrade.
i installed the new os on the computer. deleted the vendor.xml file. connected the phone to the computer then opened dm. but nothing happens. i manually went to the app loader and tried to install the os that way. it's listed there as an availible update, but when i check it off and click next it doesn't do anything. it just says that no action is required. the phone still says .167 on it. any ideas?
Assuming the os is correct for your phone try this. Uninstall the old os from the PC. Then install the new ont~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Sorry about that. Should have said install the new one on your phone~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

i had this exact problem with mine.
what you need to do is make sure you have all your data you want on your blackberry.
now uninstall everything that has to do with blackberry and research in motion frm your computer, including the .ipd backups of your blackberry.
then go into the registry (regedit) and delete the research in motion registry files. all of them.
restart your computer
install desktop manager 4.6 first
then install the new os you want to put onto your phone. (at time of posting the best one seems to be .217)
now plug in you blackberry to your pc.
it should read it and ask to update
viola. good luck
thanks...i didn't have to do all that registry editing though. i uninstalled 4.7 and installed 4.6. re-installed the os (i put in .210, seems to be the least problematic), deleted the vendor file and pluged in the phone. worked just fine and updated in about 20 minutes.
Is there some kind of problem with DM 4.7?

Many users feel that it's not really that stable. I tried it, and ended up going back to 4.6. It didn't sync my calender correctly with Outlook and I've yet to get an OS upgrade to actually complete while using it.

If you do uninstall them though with your control panel, I would cerainly hold onto the install.exe files for the OS's so you can downgrade or upgrade, as the case may be in the future. The Loader.exe file is in the c:\program files\common files\Research in Motion\Apploader folder.
Some people have had problems with 4.7 installing updates to the Bold. I have been lucky I guess since I have not experienced any problems at all.
I have not had any problems with DM 4.7 except for not being able to install .210

I had these exact same issues with 4.7 and my 8130. Downgraded to 4.6 prior to getting my Bold, and all has been well so far (knock on wood).

i also have had weird calender synchs with 4.7, helpfully this will be fixed now......
