    Thumbs down Os update from 4.2.0.42 to 4.2.0.67 Help

    Advertisement



    I currently have 4.2.0.42 and just downloaded the newest update 4.2.0.67. When I install it it ask me to repair or remove. I've tried both and the update does not take any affect. I've also tried reomving both the desktop software and the old 4.2.0.42 software with add remove programs in the control panel. I restarted the computer tried once again installing everything again and the update does not take affect still. My service provider is T-Mobile. Need some help please.

    Is this OS for your provider? You may need to delete the vendor file before you can use it.

    You have to have Desktop Manager Installed to get the OS to your Blackberry.

    Since you are getting a repair or remove message when installing, it sounds like you already have the software installed or are having a software conflict.

    I would go on your Computer to:
    Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs> and get rid of any Blackberry 4.2 handheld softwares you see.

    Now restart your Computer and Install the 4.2.0.67 on your Computer, and unless Telefonica is your provider do a search on your Computer for "Vendor.xml" and delete it.

    Now connect your BB to the PC and start DM, and it should prompt you to update

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com/11486-new_os_download_your_own_risk.html .67 is the telefonica version of the software. It works just fine. I have been running it on my bb since it was released.

    groovin2dabe,

    Here is the worse case procedure. It is drastic though.

    1. Start by Downloading and installing JL_Cmder, see that link for instructions.
    2. Uninstall all version of the OS on your PC (Control Pannel Add or remove Programs)
    3. Download and execute on your PC the latest software for your BB. See this thread for links to the sofware download site for your carrier, Use the link for the version you want from the other threads.
    4. Connect you BB to your PC
    5. Open JL_Cmder,
    6. Select the Wipe Option (5)
    7. Follow the instructions in this thread very carefully, How To: ReInstall OS When Computer Won't recognize The Device Is Connected
      • Be sure to follow everything carefully, especially the items in Red


    Hope this helps if you try it.
