    Question Urgent Help Needed

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    I'd like to upgrade to the neww operating system but I require the step by steps to do it.

    I've search the different thread but I couldn't find any clear instructions for a total newbie.

    Please can someone help out?

    Thanks

    How is this urgent?

    Anyway, here's what you do:

    1. Download the os you want to install.
    2. Locate and delete the vendor.xml file. Best best on a windows pc is to press windows key+f and search for vendor.xml. Then delete it.
    3. Attach BB to the pc with the usb cable, open the dekstop manager and run the application loader.
    4. Follow the instructions on the screen.

    No worries -- I know how it is to not be able to figure something out with your phone.

    Were you able to update successfully?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I always recommend NOT "upgrading", unless the upgrade is released officially by your carrier.

    If you mess up, or your BlackBerry ceases functioning, and you request service from your carrier, they won't be able to help because they don't support the OS you installed (and botched).

    Worst case is that they will refuse to help, and then void your warranty.

    If you're a "noob", and you're unsure, leave well enough alone.

    The tmobile site has the neccessary dl's and instructions for the latest official version. But there are only 2 significant changes: you can use a 2gb microsd card (vs 1gb), and when it rings the ringer won't shut off if you move the trackball. That's about it. The minus is that when you put it in the standby mode you can only get it out of that mode by pressing mute, and there's no prompt to get it out when you press a key. I kind of hate that myself.

    Man! I thought that the standby mode was made right for that! If you want to see a prompt when pressing a key, don't use the standby mode, just use the keyboard lock!!!

    I work for T-Mobile and I spent 30 minutes on the phone with our BB tech support I don't think that it supports the 2 gig memory

    Re: Urgent Help Needed

    I've tried downloading the new OS for the second time and after 44.4 MB of download, the error message "Internet Explorer cannot download this file from www.blackberry.com The server returned an invalid or unrecognised response"

    I think someone is trying to tell me to leave well alone and that's what I'm gonna do...lol

    What OS do you have? Which are you trying to "downgrade" to?

    You're on TMobile right? Just go to www.t-mobile.com/bbupgrade

    If you can't download from the either the RIM site or Tmobile site, then it sounds like an issue with your computer.

    If you have AIM and are at a computer, let me know, and I can direct connect you the OS.
