    Help loading 4.5.0.160 on 8330

    I am trying to update a friend of mine to 4.5.0.160 from .89. He wanted to go to the new BBM 5.0 and the BBM 5 would not load, so we tried to update his OS.

    I downloaded the 160 from BB and deleted the vendor.xml file. I ran apploader and I get a fatal error everytime I try to update. I alsio tried to do the update via Desktop Manager, and it also gives a "fatal error".

    What am I doing wrong?

    It's always a good idea to do a back up first.

    AH! Now I see why you asked..lol

    Tried a backup, it failed. "Error. Could not communicate with the device." Now I am not using the cable sent with the unit. He left it at his house and I am using a cable that I had for my Sony PSP.
