Under the about it has the .81 listed. Still not doing anything. I'm going to try and restart my cpu to see if that might be it.

Tried rebooting and still nothing.
09-29-2008, 03:16 AM
ok, and you did delete the vendor.xml file after you installed the OS?
09-29-2008, 03:18 AM
Yes. I downloaded it and then right after went to delete the vendor file and tried to download. its not showing anything for an update but says that .81 is the software installed.
09-29-2008, 03:20 AM
When i download it should i click run or save? and im on vista is that helps see whats going on
09-29-2008, 03:30 AM
do you have any other OS versions listed under control panel/add or remove apps?
if so, remove all OS that aren't .81
in answer to your question, i would save it, then after saving it the window will ask you if you want to run, choose run.

Ok, I have deleted everything and also im going to try and re download it. I am going to save it and see what happends? Quick question, does it matter if the memory card is in my phone? thanks so much cherri. I really appreciate you helping me so late.

NP girl! if i were you, i'd take out the card. wait to reinsert after the upgrade ... just for safe measure
09-29-2008, 03:36 AM
ok i was just checking. it's already out but i didnt know if that would make a difference. so once it downloads should i click on the saved item or it will prompt to run after it installs?
09-29-2008, 03:39 AM
it should prompt you to run after the download is complete. if it does not, then go back to where you save it and double click the file to begin the installation. after the install is complete it "should" ask if you want to launch DM. don't check the box, just click ok. delete the vendor.xml file.
09-29-2008, 03:41 AM
ok hopefully it will allow me to do that before you get off so i can have some assistance.
09-29-2008, 04:04 AM
Ok so I have tried this again and its still not working. It says that I dont have an update available however it shows in the about dm that .81 is there.
09-29-2008, 04:23 AM
If that's what it's showing you should have it loaded properly. That means its installed on your device.
On BB go to Options>About and this will show you what OS is on your device.
I'm not sure what you mean exactly by it didn't work.
I would suggest trying again with a wipe and OS reinstall. I'm wap or would link you to the "how to" guide you need.

I wiped the OS from my bb. Now I can't download any of the OS. I'm wondering what I am doing wrong.
