    It's better to do it through desktop manager. It's a lot quicker.

    Here you go:

    Uninstall any OLD BlackBerry OS versions from your computer if you have them.

    Install .246 to your computer. This means you double click on the OS.exe file that you downloaded and let Windows install it.

    Plug in your phone and use Desktop Manager 6.0 (DM) to make a backup of your device.

    Close DM and go to:

    C:\program files(86)\common files\research in motion\apploader\

    From there delete vendor.xml, if it's there, then run loader.exe

    Follow the instructions - make sure you look closely at the list of items that have or do not have check marks next to them so you install what you want and don't install what you don't want.

    When the popup asks if it should make a backup of your device and restore your 3rd party apps, it should be selected to do it. Do not change it.

    Wait about 15-20 minutes for the process to complete and your phone to reboot completely before disconnecting. You will probably get an EntryPoint error at the end - do not worry.

    Enjoy and let us know how it went. Always remember it takes several battery pulls while you're getting your phone running again before the OS becomes stable. If it seems slow at first just give it some time to do it's thing and when it seems to have caught up, do another battery pull.

    Good luck and feel free to PM me if you have any trouble!

    as jeffrei said make sure to delete the vendor.xml file...personally i haven't noticed any issues if you do or don't (forgot to once) but you never know i am sure the ops and mods who have recommended this to us say it for a reason and you don't want to risk it.

    Nothing happens it just won't let you install the OS in some cases (when installing an OS from another provider).
