    Follow these instructions and you should be able to have OS 4.1xworking for you too.

    1.) BACK UP YOUR DATA! - I can't stress how important it is to get a good backup in the event you need to retore your data.

    2.) Verify that you are using the latest version of Desktop Manager. In the Desktop manager program on your PC use the Help menu and select About Desktop Manager. The latest version is 4.2. If you need the latest version follow this link.

    3.) Download lastest OS 4.x from this link or if available from your carrier its BEST to download here (select carrier)

    4.) Install 4.x using the .exe file you just downloaded.

    5.) Delete the 'Vendor.xml' file ( C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader ) Or search your computer's hard drive for the "vendor.xml" file. Once you find it, delete it.

    6.) Connect your device to your PC via the USB cable.

    7.) Open Desktop Manager. It should recognize that there is an upgrade for your device. ('Vendor.xml' must be deleted for this step to work) Follow the prompts and you will have OS 4.x installed in about 15 to 20 minutes.

    Good luck and of course, myself nor pinstack.com can take responsibilty for any problems that may occur. I will however extend my assistance if you need it.

    it says my device is now 4.1 but it lags like hell now and it takes over a minute for a theme to be activated.

    agent,

    Not all that familiar with the 7100 menus, can you read the entire version number under Options / About?

    Also does desktop manager continue to prompt you to upgrade? If not then the new OS is on your device.

    Did you solve the issue of the center key not responding?

    What version did you download? Have you deleted all the unused Language Applications?

    same thing happened to me.. I have 8310 though... installed version 4.5.0.37. blackberry goes into a cycle... will boot until "verifying security software" then turn off again...

    heres what im going to do..

    wipe blackberry using JL commander... until i get the dead symbol on bb...

    1) uninstall OS in my computer...
    2) reinstall OS in my computer...
    3) remove vendor.alx (do modifications in blackberry.alx & platform.alx if needed)
    4) update info using DM 4.3

    correct me if im wrong.. thank you!
