I have downloaded 4.5 DM and the Orange 4.5 file. When I run that it extracts, I run DM and it never does any upgrade. I did delete the vendor.xml (I have a T-Mo 8320). I have been following the instructions from the other post on installing these files. Any additional help?
Nevermind, got it. I wasn't deleting the Vendor.xml at the right point. It is working now.

Alright, I deleted my vendor.xml file that was already there, and it didnt work, but i forgot that before when i did this upgrade thing i had to install the 4.5 OS in my computer first AND THEN delete the vendor.xml file. So make sure the blackberry is not connected and Desktop Manager is closed, install the 4.5 OS, then delete the vendor.xml file, and then open desktop manager and plus in the bberry, if nothing happens, leave the bberry plugged in, close the manager and reopen it. I jus did this right now and it worked (Doin it for AT&T 8310). Hope it works for u

I have a tmo 8320, the latest DM and updated to 4.5 OS from Orange UK.
Everything went fine except now the camera is not working, once I snap a picture
the screen goes blank. The video works fine, I have reloaded the OS and reformatted my 2gb media card and still the same problem.
Any suggestions ?

I have a 7290 and I have tried everything on this thread. Took a long time to read. And still does not prompt for upgrade. When I go into Application Loader it says "fatal error whilst trying to update" or something similar so i'm uninstalling desktop manager and reinstalling and also the device softare to see if it will work.
Edit// Tried re-installing everything. No difference. Btw I am using Desktop Manager 4.5 and downloaded the CSL 4.1 setup file. I deleted the XML file and it does not prompt for upgrade. No longer have fatal error message though. However when I try go through the procedure used to load an application it gives the "no additional application....." message. And I can only press cancel or back. Also how do I tell the amount of memory I have to see whether my device is capable of installing OS 4.1

Im taking the plunge with my precious 8310. I followed the instructions exactly and so far it is doing okay. DM actually did a backup without asking me. I'm paranoid about switching over so I had already backed it up to my C: and my external...just in case. ATM its doing its thing..the wait is agonizing! I'll update when its done.
Okay Im nervous...its making me run through the setup and when I go through as an existing user its not recognizing my name and password..Help??
