I am having a weird issue. I was upgrading my ATT 8310 from .110 to ... BlackBerry Curve forum
I am having a weird issue. I was upgrading my ATT 8310 from .110 to .124. I deleted the vendor file and even moved the .110 folder out of the shared folder. When I connect to the DM it comes up that there is new software to upgrade, I select it(.124) in DM and it runs like it is doing the upgrade, but when I check it on the device it still says .110. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
You will need to uninstall the .110 from your PC. What DM are you using?
I am using 4.7. I thought that when dm loaded it looked for the newest version of the OS. I can try and uninstall it though.
It will only notice Official upgrades and the most current for the 8310 on ATT is .110.
Have you manually uninstalled .110 and then installed .124?

Very good advice ssnxp, you beat me to the bunch.

Let us know if you get this figured out, Tim.

I uninstalled the .110 through add/remove, and it gives me the option for the .124 when it scans, but when i let it run the upgrade, it says no upgrade needed, or it runs like it is doing the normal upgrade, but when it is done and the device restarts, it still is .110
Okay, Tim. Let's try this.
Uninstall DM 4.7 (for instructions on a clean uninstall, click on the FAQ link in my signature), uninstall the .124 OS.
Reboot your PC.
Download and install DM 4.6, download and install the .124 OS again. Delete the vendor.xml file and try the upgrade again.
This should clean everything up and get you going again.
Thanks i will try that this evening after I get home.
I have DM 4.7 and it didnt want to recognize my last upgrade even though I had deleted the vendor xml. All I had to do was close the DM, leave my BB hooked up, on my PC go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Apploader.
In there there is an icon named Loader. I double clicked that icon then click next. The next screen said Communication Port Selection and my PIN showed in the box, click next again, it reads the device and computer for OS then brought up the box showing my OS applications that would be upgraded and it was the new OS I was trying to load.
You may want to try this before going through the uninstall DM/reinstall DM and OS.
Good call, az. I always forget about the Loader executable since I've only ever had to use it once.
Tim, take azstar's advice and give that Loader executable a try before my suggestions.
I still stand by my suggestion to replace DM 4.7 with 4.6, however.
I have suggested 4.6 to others as well. But other than upgrading the 4.7 version works great for me and going straight to the loader for the upgrade is easier than going through the uninstall DM reboot, re-download, re-install.......I guess I just like the easy/lazy way
I agree. The easier the better. I've added that method to my newly updated installation/upgrade instructions, with a nod to you for your reminder!
You know I have done that before as well and forgot about it. I will try that this evening, thanks.
