    Search dude, there are other things you could try like just using apploader directly that have been mentioned many times.

    Do you have earlier version installed on your computer??...if so try to uninstall them first. And IMO I never disconnected from the internet...

    Plug in your BB, wait till after the sync, then it should promt for a newer o.s....

    Hey man, I'll help you out since everybody here is super pissy.

    Download the leak, install the leak on your computer.

    Instead of using Desktop Manager, which never works for me either by the way, use the AppLoader.exe.
    Windows Explorer -> Program Files -> Common Files -> Research in Motion -> AppLoader -> Loader.exe

    Make sure your device is plugged in, and make sure you've erased the Vendor.xml file in this very same directory.

    Launch Loader.exe, follow the instructions. To make sure you're loading the updated firmware, if you click on one of the applications it's going to install there should be a way to see the properties of it. Somewhere in that menu it will verify that it is .99. (should be under modules)

    The default selected programs are usually good to go, so just proceed with the update. It can take up to 25-30 minutes and at some points it will seem like it is totally frozen...this never happens and it won't happen to you so DO NOT UNPLUG IT. Go watch TV and come back and it should be done.

    Cheers!

    Ppl get pissy bc this is asked frequently. I will typically give the same advice as above but you'll get multiple ppl asking the same question

    I think the loader.exe method should just be included in the sticky thread explaining how to install an OS. Its a much more reliable method of installing a new OS...old ones too.
