    Here's my updated OS install guide if anyone needs a refresher...

    ELITE1's OS UPGRADE GUIDE
    (updated 2012-09-01)

    1. (Optional) Uninstall any previous OS from PC.
    2. Download OS to PC. Use Internet Explorer, not Firefox or Chrome. (For leaked versions, browser is irrelevant.)
      *If 100% certain you previously used FF or Chrome on same PC to DL an OS successfully, feel free to use FF or Chrome again.
    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 with option to save settings to media card. Conduct Backup to media card within each of these apps. (Examples: Bellshare apps like BerryBuzz & BerryWeather; QuickLaunch; Shao's apps like Wallpaper Changer & SixTools; etc).
    6. Connect BB to PC. Open DM and backup device. Close DM.
    7. (Optional) Use desktop app like BBSAK or BBMCP to backup 3rd party apps.
    8. On PC, delete Vendor file located here:
      64-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
      32-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
    9. (Optional/Recommended) Run BBH Tool (formerly Shrink-A-OS) or BB Boss v2.2 (not as updated as BBHT).
    10. In same AppLoader file where you deleted Vendor, double-click Loader to load OS to BB. Follow onscreen instructions.
    11. After loading OS, perform several physical battery pulls over first 1-2 days for OS to "settle in." Perform first batt pull very soon after OS is loaded.


    **TROUBLESHOOTING**
    How to Fix OS not Appearing as Available
    There are 2 common reasons:

    A. HIDDEN VENDOR FILE
    Consider trying this new desktop app to remove Vendor from several common locations:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...-files-709738/

    If manually deleting Vendor, always hold down SHIFT and press DELETE to permanently delete.
    Check here first:
    64-bit: Computer\C:\Users\{USER NAME}\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML
    32-bit: Computer\C:\Documents and Settings\{USER NAME}\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML
    If Loader still doesn't make new OS available, search PC for "Vendor".

    If Vendor is not found anywhere, see below to delete contents of AppLoader folder. (Folder where you found Loader & Vendor.)

    B. APPLOADER FOLDER ITEMS
    1. Uninstall the OS: Control Panel\Programs and Features, highlight this BlackBerry Device Software, click Uninstall at top.
    2. Delete AppLoader folder contents: Highlight any item, CTRL+A to select all, SHIFT+DELETE to permanently delete.
      64-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
      32-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
    3. Restart PC.
    4. Re-install OS on PC: Go to your browser's downloads section, double-click OS to start InstallShield Wizard.
    5. Delete Vendor: Return to AppLoader folder, highlight Vendor, SHIFT+DELETE.
    6. Load OS to BB: Attach BB to PC, double-click Loader (in AppLoader folder, where you deleted Vendor).


    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.

    I found a second vendor.xml file when loading this os.

    Do the search manually using elite 1's guide or do a search of your hard drive, could well be the problem.

    Installed without incident while I was in the shower. Re-activated on my BES & everything appears 'normal' I'll see what happens over the next few days of normal use.

    I've tried four times now. But after the update, the system shows it is Bundle 1997. It seems to be downgraded to older version. I just don't get it. Does any one have same issue?

    just wondering...you said that you downloaded vendelete+....but did you try to run it? If not, the vendor.xml files were not deleted and your phone will not detect the new OS.

    Also, there was a time when despite the vendor files having been deleted, Desktop Software still did not detect the new OS. But BBSAK did.

    Not going too well so far. Phone *appears* to take much longer to charge on any form of charger. Battery appears to drain faster though I'm going to give it a few more days to see if it will settle down & behave.

    No it's the same identical OS. They were only advising that Voda had just released.

    You can't actually update from the identical OS anyway. Not unless you wipe the device first at least.
    But seriously, there's no point!

    This is how you CB10, son!

    Yes the original post is a jAllLang version.

    The difference is from the Japanese language inputs missing from Voda release, indicated by the small case J in front of AllLang.

    If you're not including Japanese anyway, there's no difference between what actually ends up on your device.
    I'd DL the Voda too if given choice, but it's no big deal if you've already DLed the other.

    This is how you CB10, son!

    I didn't like how the original thread linked to their own site, not to a direct DL from BBRY. And they didn't seem to understand from where they obtained the OS. Just didn't give me the warm fuzzies...

    The older thread is closed now and had the external links removed. Post #1 has a link to this thread now.
