Syntax error while trying to install my new OS
So I have error 507 and I'm trying to add the OS to get my blackberry running.
The only problem is the fact that the OS file is a .exe file and not a .ali file. So when I try to upload it, it says Syntax Error Line 1 and sorts.
Can anyone tell me exactly what to do?
Screen shots would be SUPER helpful.
I feel so lost without my BB.
hi flurpiee -- welcome to pinstack.
first, you would need to execute the file (install it on to your PC) .. it will not be in alx format. once you have it installed on your PC, plug bb in, launch DM and it should pick up the update. if not, double click application loader, choose install new apps and click thru to the installation window. instead of clicking browse to add apps, it (the OS and its components) should fill up the window. click next and the window will show that it is going to install the new OS.
Ok, so I tried that. When I try to open and run the OS I downloaded, it leads to the Desktop manager. Then I plug in my BB and connect it and nothing happens.
delete the vendor.xml file located:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\vendor.xml
I searched that file in my computer and I didn't find one to delete.
well then thats not the problem. did you download the correct OS for your device. each OS is device spacific so an 8110 OS willnot work with a 8100 device
That could be it.
I thought I had an 8110 but I think its just a 8100 but I wasn't paying very much attention to all the OS for my blackberry.
*crosses fingers it will work*
OMG IT WORKED
I am so happy.
These past 3 days have been hell without my bb.
Maybe I'll buy it a nice new case because I had to operate on it.
Thank you for your help =)
