    German girl out of ideas - please help

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    I would normally not start a thread after being a forum member since such a short time but I'm out of ideas.

    I have read through a gizillion threads with the information on how to update my firmware (os) to my pearl.

    - Downloaded the newest update ("TIM" - the thread was called "Heads up on update...")
    - Deleted the vendor.xml
    - Have the newest desktop manager
    - Plugged my device and the updated started automatically

    So far everything went well and exactly the way it has been written around here many times. BUT now - even though it said it is a multilanguage file I only have the English language on my system. (I don't mind the English language but I'm German and my friends would probably start wondering why I'm writing every message in English )

    Tried to search for help on this. Two advices I followed were: Run the installation wizard -- did so - didn't work.
    Other advice: Change language settings the "usual" way - only gives me US English as only option.

    I then wiped out everything and started over again - same problems.

    Ok - now I'm out of ideas and I'm hoping for your help.

    CP / Cherri / Red / everyone -- any ideas?

    Cheers from Germany

    Welcome to PinStack.

    Try this. Open destop manager, then activate app loader. Make sure you have all the different language support applications listed. Place a checkmark beside those you want to install by selecting it. Then complete the install.

    Hope this helps.

    Rcbjr -- you are my hero!!!

    I've seen those options before but they were not highlighted so I tried ticking them and it wouldn't let me. After every new install I never went back to see if it would let me after the update... I thought I had read every little thing there is to know about this whole update thing - sure I didn't.

    Thanks again Rc!

    Ahhhhh --- ok I got my german language (and a few others) back.

    But I have a message on my screen which said: uncaught exception: java.lang.nullpointerException.

    Should this worry me?
