    Question Problem with installing OS 4.5.0.75

    Advertisement



    I downloaded 4.5.0.7d DM. I had created a couple of restore points. I hooked upmy phone via the cable nothing happened. I rebooted the phone and the computer. I have seen the posts about the deleting the vendor.xml file however verytime I go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader ) but when I click on the application_loader.dll it opens with a message to search for a program to open the file (either web or on computer)? First question was this the correct version since my phone carrier is T-Mobile? Second I even did a search for the vendor.xml file and the computer says no results. Should I delete the DM OS 4.5 and try the download again? My phone still shows the OS 4.3.0.115. I figure I am doing something wrong I just don't know how to correct it.

    1st of all you have to download a blackberry OS for ur device 4.5 n then install the downloaded bb OS to ur computer n then go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader n delete the vendor.xml n then plug ur bb to computer n open ur DESKTOP MANAGER which is 4.5 as u mentioned. n desktop manager will tell u tht new update is available for ur device thn folllow the instruction
    the reson u didnt find the vendor.xml is tht cuz you didnt install the bb OS to ur computer n u didnt even downloaded u only have desktop manager 4.5 lolzz but it happns cheerzz

    A friend helped me with install. I am too embarrassed to admit that I missed the Common files folder. Thanks for everyone's help.

    FYI for future reference, ceabbott, here's a thread that you can save for instructions on how to upgrade the OS.

    Anyone know why the "latest OS" stickies at the top of the 8120 section haven't been updated in months? Does OS 4.5 not count?

    I think most everyone is watching this site for the latest OS - does that help?
