New Rogers OS 4.5 Update
I have followed all "how-to" guides ive found. I believe i have done everything right.
I downloaded the new Rogers 4.5 OS, i downloaded DM4.6, i did a backup of my 8310 device.
Unplugged it. Located the vendor.xml from the location specified, and deleted it.
Plugged my 8310 back in. Opened up DM and it has not recognized a new OS is waiting for it.
Not sure what im missing. Would LOVE to finally enjoy 4.5 before tonight is overwith.
This is my 1st OS update since i had my 8100 over a yr and half ago or so.
Someone please help?
I am having the same issue with the new Verizon 4.5. I have uninstalled both the OS and DM, deleted the files for a clean install and still the new OS is not being recognized?
did you reboot the PC after you installed DM? always good practice to do so after the DM install.
also, DM 4.5/4.6 do not pop up with the 'update' like the previous versions. at least, it hasn't for me, ever. double click application loader and perform the steps to add a new application. it should show "upgrade" to the core apps in the "device application selection" window.
Hmmmm. This is super weak. I hope someone can help us out soon, I would really like to get 4.5 on my BB sometime tonight.

Just in case, I downgraded to DM 4.5 and tried again from scratch. No Dice!

I assume you downloaded the 4.5 to your desktop. Secret to getting DM to recognize upgrade is to CLICK ON THE ICON for the upgrade and follow all prompts to open it up on your computer.
Then plug your bb into usb, then open DM.
It will prompt you to install upgrade.
Upgrading now, will i have to resend my service books after this installation to continue receiving my sms, mms, email?
it wouldn't hurt. you should get a registration email. ive had instances where i did and where i didn't.
when u say click on the icon to upgrade? where are u talking about should i open up the dm?
I came across this at another BB forum... Perhaps this is the trouble?

fix spaces as needed....
He meant click on the actual OS icon on your desktop, dont open DM yet, just open up and run the OS file you just downloaded to your pc.
Follow all prompts until it is finished, then open up DM and it should recognize it
Could someone please send me the link/links to the place where I'd dowload the OS 4.5 upgrade? The upgrade 4 my curve 8310 and the desktop version
You seem to be double posting
