    I heard someone saying that you can no longer install any OS from another carrier by simply deleting the Vendor file?

    Is this true? is there another trick that needs to be done?

    Or was that just a case of user error and the process is the same?

    FACT: User error
    FACT: Process exactly the same
    FACT: Done it 5 times on the 9900 in the past week.

    Yeah installed .317 no problem, not even sure what carrier it was supposed to be on.

    Oh good to know I was hoping the process didn't change and I certainly found it weird as it has always been the same for all the BlackBerrys

    So even if one would wipe his device completely, then install a new OS and delete the Vendor file, that's it right?

    Technically you don't even need to do the wipe first.

    I wish more people could grasp this concept.

    Lol, it's a losing battle

    There ARE two vendor.xml files in some of the newer OSes too.
