    Switching OS's

    Advertisement



    Hi guys.

    I have a Vodafone 8100 Pearl and I want to reflash it with at&t software. I've backed up my device, wiped it, but the application loader won't recognize any of the software I've downloaded?

    Is this even possible or is using the Vodafone software the only way to get the phone up and running again?

    Thanks in advance,
    Christian

    Have you deleted the vendor.alx file? If not, you can't load the OS from another vendor onto your phone.

    Yes, it sounds like you didn't delete the vendor.xml file from:

    c:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader

    When you remove that file, plug in your device to the PC and start up Desktop Manager, you should be prompted for the upgrade.

    Keep us posted and good luck, Christian!
