to my knowledge I dont think its a 8330m also i deleted the vendor.xml already that was in program files/rim/apploader, are you saying there is another file i must delete?
Try disconnecting from the internet while trying to update. I think what is happening is that when DM goes to look for updates it's contacting RIM. RIM says current version for your device is .131, therefore no update available.
I am using 188.8.131.52.. Is there any newer OS that can help the damn delay when you hit the ball? Also, this thread seems like there is a newer OS but I can't find it. Maybe a sticky can be made with the location and instructions for these OS'? Thanks.
