    Was your pc connected to the internet when you hooked up to DM?

    If so, chances are DM reinstalled the Vendor.xml file.

    Delete the file again, disconnect from the internet, hook up to DM... and you should be good to go

    thanks for trying to help,,I was not connected at the time of download,,and the vendor.xml file is still in my recycle bin, I have not completely eliminated xml file,,because i wasnt sure if it would affect anything.I checked my RIM files under apploader and there is no vendor.xml file there

    Thanks,,

    Hmmm... not sure what your problem is then

    I always use crackmem when upgrading, it's so simple.
    You can have several OS's installed on your pc, and just select the one you want to use.
    It's never failed to find one and successfully upgrade yet.

    Give it a try... http://forums.crackberry.com/f35/cra...44/#post498385
