    nearly had my bold a year now and never had this issue, if i saw this topic i would be thinking "this guy needs to delete the vendor.xml" but i have already done this and still 282 doesnt appear to load through desktop manager..! I am not going for the full wipe and re-install this time, I did that with 266 through master control program, i am wondering if that could be the issue here? the fact i loaded it with MCP last time? I dont see why it should be, but somethings wrong and the DM is not recognising rogers 282. Anyone else had this issue or know a solution?

    Looks like i might have to wipe and reinstall all at this rate!

    Delete the older OS (.266) from your comp - add/delete programs in your control panel. Then try again.

    I always have to delete the older OS to get the newer one to be recognized. Then it works fine.

    After you remove vendor.xml. for this particular os to upgrade you had to go through c:/programfiles/commonfiles/researchinmotion/apploader and click on the loader icon to upgrade. It'll give you prompts. keep it connected. I don't know why but that is how I sompleted the upgrade.

    They only way I know how is restore the last back-up I did using DM before upgrading. If this does not help, I do not know how to get them back. good luck
