    blackberry 8700c 4.2ver

    Advertisement



    Hey I am trying to install ver4.2 on my bb8700c and for some reason I can't seem to figure out how to install the update. Ive downloaded: 8700M_PBr4.2.1_rel108_PL2.3.0.59_A4.2.1.66_Telefon ica_VE

    from blackberry's website, installed it but i have no idea what to do after that. Ive heard there should be some update button in the desktop manager, but I can't seem to find it.

    Thanks for your time.

    First you need to search your PC and delete the vendor.xlm file.
    Once that is done hook your BB up to the PC. If you don't get a prompt right away to upgrade go into Application Loader just like you were going to load an application. You should see Upgrade listed for the BlackBerry OS stuff... then just let it run.
    Success is not final, Failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

    I search not only the blackberry folder where all of my blackberry stuff is installed but also the whole computer, no luck...

    Take a look at attached screen capture and try to search again-
    if you indeed have installed the new OS on your PC i.e.

    Good Luck!

    Hopefully, you were searching for vendor.xml and not vendor.xlm

    Make sure DM is closed when you delete it. If it's not and you've already deleted the vendor.xml file then close it and reopen.
