    Ok so I followed the instructions to the T on how to upgrade to .206 and tried many different suggestions from what ALL I have read. Nothing seems to work and I have a good grasp on what I am doing.

    -Downloaded .206 from link to MegaUpload.com
    -Run/Installed on my PC
    -Deleted vendor.xml file from programfiles/commonfiles/rim/apploader
    -"wiped" it with JL_Cmder correctly. its white screen says "Reload Software 507"
    -connected BB to computer (no internet connection) and opened up DM4.7
    And it wouldnt connect to boot ROM, so I read that I should use DM4.6
    I repeated the process and STILL nothing. I am so frustrated because now my phone is wiped I have tried numerous things and in different ways but no matter what I cant get it to connect.
    I desperately need some assistance with my problem. Any advice would help!
    I am even willing to go to a different OS just to get my phone back working

    Once again I've read alllllll the posts I can on how to resolve this issue. The only thing I havent done it to try it on another computer. I have deleted all files and even started it all over again in hopes that I might have missed/messed up a step in the process

    Did you try just running the Apploader from the Research In Motion folder?

    Try connecting your BB and use the Loader.exe file to run the upgrade... it's located in the same directory as the Vendor.xml file... I think it's Loader or AppLoader.exe, but I'm not at home to see the exact name of the file.

    it shows that the usb port is connected just doesnt connect to boot ROM. But I tried it with it connected to a different port and still nothing....

    I've done that as well and still nothing. I've used both DM 4.6 and DM 4.7 too!

    i rebooted the PC - swapped the usb port and it worked for me!

    it just flashed on a red led on the BB when trying to connect beforehand!

    You need to use a USB port that is connected directly to your PC, do not use one that is part of a USB hub.

    What OS are you running on your PC?

    windows XP professional and I plug directly to my CPU. I fixed the problem by calling Tmobile.....I guess a force connection solved my issue
