I've modified Motorola RAZR phones in much the same way, so I took the plunge today and followed your instructions and sure enough, the next time I synched my Pearl it loaded the modified files and reset.
I was able to get this done with no problem however, I don't think its really worth the time for me. The themes it unlocked are nothing to write home about in my opinion, so unless you REALLY don't like what you have, it may not be worth the time.
One thing I did notice through the process of updating the OS is that the following file was removed: net_rim_bb_lbs_internal_gps
Is it possible this has something to do with VZW crippling the GPS?
This might be a Vista problem. I'm using XP and it works fine. Try saving it as a different file name. If it will allow you to do that... then go to the original blackberry.alx file and rename it to blackberry.alx.old. Now take the new file you just saved and rename it to blackberry.alx
I'm running Desktop v22.214.171.124 with an 8703. When I browse to the given folder for the .alx file, I only have the following: App loader, Modem Drivers, USB Drivers, and RIM Device Manager. None of these folders has the blackberry.alx file even with hidden files shown. Any ideas?
Well, I tried doing everything you said. But, I do not have a "blackberry.alx" file on my PC. I tried my other PC where I have the old version of my desktop manager and this files does not exist either.
