Unless you consider yourself above average to professional computer literate, you should stop there.
The odds are good there will be issues. If you are not confidant in your ability to roll back to a known good OS, you should stop right now.
If you are confidant, delete vendor and start up Applications Loader....

1) Backup with desktop manager
2) Wipe handheld
3) Install the desired OS on your PC and optimize to your liking
4) Delete the vendor.xml file! (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\vendor.xml)
5) Plug device into PC, run DM, load OS!
6) Restore from backup in step 1!No longer a CrackBerry addict. Moved to Android - could not be happier!

If you want to delete the old OS from your BB then go to options>advanced options>applications. You should have all the core OS stored right their. Hope this helps!Fanntais solas riahm

i swear i'm not usually this retarded, just being "too careful" so i dont miss a step!

Please refer to my post above... I detailed this thoroughly enough! ^^
The OS you download will be an .exe
You install this on your PC as any other program you would install... (you can check in add/remove programs!)
Then follow those steps!No longer a CrackBerry addict. Moved to Android - could not be happier!
