    I was wondering if someone could write a detailed walk through in this post 4.5 and 4.7 OS world. The days of simple deleting vendor.xml file are over and I find that too many people give too many different was of doing things and its confusing. Is it too difficult to ask for this? Many novices will appreciate it.

    "The days of simple deleting vendor.xml file" are not over. That is all you have to do to get the blackberry computer software to recognize your beta os as an upgrade.

    (wiping w/BBSAK is optionally before the following steps)
    1) download OS .exe file to your Windows computer
    2) install OS in Windows
    3) delete Vendor.xml (in C:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader)
    4) connect Blackberry to computer via USB
    5) run Apploader.exe (located in same directory as step 4)
    6) select to install OS to device

    I'm sure there are much better guides around, but these are the cliffnotes.
