    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    Looks like I had 2 OS's installed on my PC. I'm just now uninstalling the older version. I did update the correct .alx file in the Loader folder.

    Just re-instaled the latest OS and now there's a Vendor.xml file in the correct place. Now I have to re-edit the vendor codes in the .alx file, dlete the vendor.xml file and run App Loader - THEN I should be OK......right?

    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    No dice. And the .xml file is gone again.

    Just reinstalled (again) and .xml is back. But I still don't have the themes.

    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    ok...we need to figure out where the disconnect is here.

    1) uninstall ALL curve OS from your add/remove programs
    2) go find where the OS' are residing (where you saved them) and double click to re-install the one you want
    3) replace blackberry.alx file with the edited one (if you tell me what OS you are trying to install, i will GIVE you my edited blackberry.alx file) C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8300-v4.2.2.114_P2.4.0.53
    4) delete the vendor.xml file C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
    5) plug bb in to usb cable
    6) launch desktop manager

    honestly, at this point, you may want to do a security wipe...maybe even a java wipe. not sure what you have done to your bb.

    and...what version desktop manager are you using? did you download the updated with service pack 2?

    Thanks, Cherri. However, I have a Pearl - not a Curve.

    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    Being an AT&T customer (vendor code 102), i should insert "102" as below?

    <!-- Bell Mobility Canada filesets -->
    <!-- AT&T US filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" Java="1.0" series="8100" _vendorID="102">
    <files>
    net_rim_theme_102a_icon_240x260_b.cod
    </files>
    </fileset>
    <!-- Sprint filesets -->
    <!-- Telefonica filesets -->
    <!-- TIM filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" Java="1.0" series="8100" _vendorID="102l115>

    i would delete all of the codes, and replace them with 102
    like this:
    <fileset Colour="True" Java="1.0" series="8100" _vendorID="102>

    Did everything you said. Ran the App Loader..."No actions were taken".

    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    is it because the OS you have on your bb is the same one you are trying to put on there now, just with edited alx file?

    when i did this before, i had to do a java wipe...

    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    The OS is the same 4.2.1.96 for AT&T. How do you do a Java wipe?

    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    ok...that's gonna be the problem

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ds/links/5/452

    this will wipe your bb clean and you will receive a white screen - follow the same instructions as above, after the wipe.

    Re: Missing vendor.xml file

    What will I lose as a result of the java wipe? Apps, data, etc?
