    My Pearl Turned Into A Brick When I Tried Updating to 4.5!!!

    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    I have Blackberry Pearl with T-Mobile, and my phone turned into a brick! I've been reading some of the posts on here on how to update my pearl to the 4.5 OS except when I followed the instructions to update it, pearl would not load. My phone read app error 523 reset and everytime I press reset it sent me to the same screen again. I eventually read other posts to restore my original OS when my DM wasn't recognizing my Pearl and now its fine. But I would really love to update my Pearl to the 4.5 OS. Please Help Me!


    If it helps, I tried using the Vodafone UK Blackberry Pearl 4.5 OS


    Please and Thanks!

    You will need to make sure you have deleted the vendor.xml. Go into c/program files/common files/research in motion/app loader it should be the last file there. Then reboot your PC and connect your device. Then open desktop Manager and see if it will notice and start install.

    Okay....I did delete the vendor.xlm file already. But I didn't reboot my PC after I deleted it. I will do that and let you know my results!

    Just in case that doesn't work try going into c/program files/common files/research in motion/app loader and launching the loader from there by clicking the loader file.

    I finally tried again and I got it to work! Thanks! It has so many updates! I don't think I want to go back.

    Only a couple of issues tho (no big ones, I can easily get over these):

    1) I have two instant messenger icons on my pearl and when I try to download it, my browser screen reads that I have an unknown device and that I can't download it becuz its only for tmobile customers.

    2) My Pearl doesn't have any preloaded pictures, music, or videos

    Other than that everthing is great!

    You move stuff into the folder. Move an icon, put it on the folder, there you go.

    Now my folder works....Thanks!....as for the bb messenger...I have it now, apparently it was not installed when I did my upgrade....I don't know how it wasn't but when I plugged my pearl into my laptop earlier today, it upgraded and now it works. I also have my instant messengers as well. I still don't have any preloaded pictures, music, or videos but that's no big deal.
