    You don't need a BB plan to get OS 6!


    First, create a backup of your BB using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager just in case anything goes wrong.

    Then backup your apps using BBSAK by clicking on the Backup Apps Button (if you wish to and have many apps that are hard for you to reinstall)


    You must start by downloading OS 6.0.0.461

    After the download is complete, install the file you have just downloaded.

    Next, browse to Computer >>> C: >>> Program Files >>> Common Files >>> Research in Motion >>> Apploader
    In that folder, you will find a file called vendor.xml, DELETE that file

    of if you have a 64 bit Windows, then it would be >>> Computer >>> C: >>> Program Files (x86) >>> Common Files >>> Research in Motion >>> Apploader


    In that folder, you will find a file called vendor.xml

    While you are in that folder, after you have deleted the above mentioned file, you will find another file by the name of loader.exe

    Run that file, you will now get the screen to initialize the upgrade of the OS on your BB, click next to continue, your device PIN will be listed on this next screen, click next again to continue.

    Now you will get with a list of options to select or deselect the components you want to install.

    Carefully select only the items that you need, do not select all the chat messengers and components you know you will not use as this will eat up your precious application memory.

    After you have selected the components you want to install, click next, and the upgrade process shall begin.

    Your phone will automatically create a backup of your settings / apps first, then it will wipe the old OS then install the new one and restore the backup.

    If you have backed up your apps using BBSAK, now is the time to restore them by clicking Restore Apps from BBSAK

    Should anything go wrong at this stage, you will have to wipe your device again and try again, but luckily, we have created a backup file at the beginning of these instructions, so you will still be able to restore all your contacts, emails, settings, etc.

    If you don't hyave a data plan, apps are useless, only a few will actually work without a data plan.

    Dear thanks a lot for the trouble you took. I did everything as you described selected and deselected applications as you said with loader and I have the version of os 6.0.0.461 installed in my machine as you had asked. I have removed useless applications and as you said its but even after all this new version of os didn’t got installed it remained with old version of OS 5 only.

    Any other idea you got or other way ?

    Thanks a lot,

    Sam

    1. Do security wipe from your device just for your data/setting
    2. Wipe your device with bb sak
    3. Re run the loader.exe again
