    The instructions listed here: http://forums.crackberry.com/f3/prop...ocedure-53359/ are pretty self explanatory. If you're having any issue understanding what to do, I'd advise AGAINST upgrading. Not too sure how somebody holding your hand through this will help you any more than the basic procedure listed in the instructions.

    Just trying to help. First rule of updating your OS is, be comfortable with your BB. Otherwise, you could end up bricking it. I wasn't trying to offend.

    There is no reason to completely wipe the device manually, anyway. You're following the "Basic" procedure, right?

    You downloaded it, but did you INSTALL the OS? There should be a .exe file. You need to install the OS first.

    1. Backup Phone in DesktopManager.
    2. Unplug phone and close DM.
    3. Install new OS .exe file.
    4. Plug phone back into PC and let drivers install.
    5. Launch DM and proceed with update of OS.
    6. Make sure you pick Backup Data and Apps (including Messages) during the backup!!!
    7. DO NOT under any circumstance unplug the phone or use the PC while the update is in progress. Do not let screen saver kick in either.
    8. Unplug and use phone ONLY once the upgrade procedure states that it's finished by the DM update software on the screen.

    Thanks, Tre. The OP is having difficulty understanding that the instructions have to be followed. You can lead a horse to water...

    Have you unplugged from the internet? I understand some people were having problems if they stayed connected while updating...

    If you downloaded and OS that isnt from your carrier you will have to delete the vendor.xml file. It is located here (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader)

    That link doesnt take us to exactly what you downloaded. When on the blackberry website did you get to the part that said "access your provider site"?

    Ok...did you delete the file I told you to delete?
    (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader) go here on your PC and scroll all the way to the bottom and delete vendor.xml file.
    If you have desktop manager 4.7 get rid of it by uninstalling through add/remove in your control panel. Then get DM 4.6
