    I tried to upgrade the OS on my BB 9930 from VZW. I followed the instruction on the top thread but it was unsuccessful. Here is what I did-

    Downloaded and installed the new OS --> deleted Vendor.xml file --> Lunched Loader.exe and connected the BB --> Select applications (no change here)--> "No action required" -> finish.

    I am on Windows 7 and rebooted the PC and BB and tried again with the same result. Am I missing something?

    Here's my short-version OS install guide if anyone needs a refresher...

    ELITE1's Quick OS UPGRADE GUIDE

    1. (Optional) Uninstall any previous OS from your PC.
    2. Download OS to PC. Use Internet Explorer to do so, not Firefox or Chrome. (For leaked versions, the browser is irrelevant though.)
    3. Following successful DL, run OS file to install OS on PC.
    4. On BB, go to BBM Options, scroll down to Backup section. Ensure Remote Backup is enabled AND also conduct a Local Backup to media card.
    5. Go through any 3rd party apps that have option to save settings to media card, and conduct Backup to media card from menu within each of these apps. (Examples: all Bellshare apps such as BerryBuzz & BerryWeather; QuickLaunch; Shao's apps such as Wallpaper Changer & SixTools; Show Me The Images; etc).
    6. Connect BB to PC. Open DM and backup device. Close DM.
    7. (Optional) Use desktop program like BBSAK or BBMCP to backup 3rd party apps.
    8. On PC, navigate to
      •64-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete file therein called Vendor.
      •32-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader and delete file therein called Vendor.
    9. (Optional/Recommended) Run BB Boss or Shrink-A-OS/BBHybrids Tool.
    10. In same AppLoader file where you deleted Vendor, double-click on Loader to initiate OS upgrade. Follow onscreen instructions.


    PS I've posted this before in other threads, but there always seems to be some people that appreciate a step-by-step each time.
    hope this helps

    There may have hidden "vendor.xml" also need to be deleted. If you are using Win Vista / 7, check if there is a copy of "vendor.xml" under "C:\Users\<UserID>\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML\"

    It worked after deleting Vendor at this location. Thank you!

    Which version did you upgrade to? .353?

    From what i've been told the .440 doesn't work with VZN 9930..is this true?

    Thanks
