    Well I have a blackberry 8900 with OS 4.6.1.310 but I want to update the OS to 5.0.0.411. I downloaded the 5.0 OS and installed it succesfully, I deleted the vendor.xml file, and I opened the Loader, but the new OS doesn't show up on the application selection screen, just the apps that I already have on my bb. Any help? thank you

    Search and make sure that is no additional vendor files - sometimes there is more than one. Another suggestion is to disconnect your pc from the internet as sometimes Desktop Manager will do an online check for the OS and may not cooperate.

    Oh, do you UNinstall prior versions of the OS using Add/Remove programs? Or at least, move those older OS out of the folder to another location on your computer.
