    I Need Help removing vendor file!

    Advertisement



    Can someone please physically call me if possible at 210.265.3449 and walk me through deleting the vendor file. I can't find it anywhere. I have the 8130 from sprint and I have downloaded the 4.5 os from alltel along with DM 4.5 from rim. I have backed up everything and have deleted the 4.3 os from my computer, I have not wiped my BB yet since I cannot figure out how to delete the vendor file. I tried going to here C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader but still cant get anywhere from this. Can someone please call me, i live in san antonio texas and will be by the phone hoping for some help.

    laraiza,

    The file is called vendor.xml and the path you wrote above is where it should be. It will probably be the last entry in that folder.

    All you need to do is put your mouse cursor on the file, right click on it and select Delete and voila! You're done!

    thanks ROGRO but it is not listed. I did a search in the c:/ drive for vendor.xml and it pulled a long list of all the vendors including Alltel but when i right click anywhere on the page, nowhere does it give me the option of "delete" like it should.

    Okay, then don't worry about it. If you're simply trying to upgrade your OS, go ahead and connect your device to the PC, launch Desktop Manager and you should be good to go!

    Did you install the 4.5 into the PC yet? it would be created AFTER that.

    Good question Ragorman. Laraiza after you downloaded the OS file did you execute it to install on your desktop? One way to check this is to check your control panel / add-remove programs. The Blackberry Operating System should show up there if properly installed.

    Very true, you have to actually install the os, not just download it. Then you should get the vendor.xml file. If you don't, just run the Desktop Manager as usual.

    If everything already suggested to you doesn't work then just follow this file path and you should find your vendor file:

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

    Ah, well that explains why it wasn't there earlier. Guess I should not have assumed you had already installed the OS.

    Haha, I would have assumed the same thing. I was just about to tell her the same thing, but it turns out, the problem has already been fixed.
