I have a storm 9530 on Fido Canada Network with verizon 126.96.36.199 OS.
I am trying to install a 188.8.131.52/190 Hybrid.
I disconnected from the net.
I installed the .190 (BB9530190.exe)
I removed the Rim Tools
I installed the 230 (newfamilypics-230.zip) Overtop as directed
I Launched DT Manager and went to upgrade it recognized the 5.0 OS but had an * Astrix with the above clause I wont let me go further.. any suggestions?

I had this error when trying to load an OS on a phone I had yet to activate and was sitting at the activation required screen. Got the same issue.
What I did to fix:
2)Wiped Device so there was NO OS on it.
3)Ran the install again of the OS I wanted to load
4)Removed the files I didnt want (vendor.xml and such)
5)Used BBSAK to "Load OS" which prompts the load through AppLoader.
This worked for me. Give it a shot, not a guarentee but heck, worth the chance.

Only Active Blackberry Subscribers can install this update
To those who can not update the OS because it says you do not have an active service plan. Try this
Unplug your USB cable
Pull the battery
Delete the vendor.xml
Start the loader.exe
Plug in the USB cable and battery, in that order.
The loader should detect the Blackberry very quickly and allow you to load OS5 regardless of whether or not you have an active data plan.
This worked for me when nothing else did. I had V4.6 and could not update to V5.0 because My Unlocked Blackberry 8900 was never on an active BES or BIS. Problems I had with the 8900 on V4.6 was bluetooth would not pair with anything and when the device booted up it only showed white screen. (no blackberry with white meter bar) So I used this to update to V5.0 and now everything is fixed.
