    Help loading new operating software

    I have downloaded 4.7.0.122. My desktop Manager does not recognize any upgraded software.
    I am still running 4.7.0.075. So I went to the Loader.exe file and the same problem.
    I am currently using Windows 7 and have followed all the recommendations for resolving the USB issues, deleted the Vendor.xml file and still nothing.
    Is there anything else I can try or do I just have to wait until Verizon realeases the official upgrade over the air?

    I can't tell you how frustrated I am with this.

    and when I go to the loader.exe where do I look for the new software?
    It only seems to show the apps I have already installed on my blackberry.

    Ok you can try goin through apploader again, and when it shows you the list of everything being up/downgraded, removed or install, hit the browse button and the follow the directions through all the files and when you get to the shared folders, open .122 and highlight everything and hit open and see what it says.

    I highlighted everything in the 9530-v4.7.0.122_P4.0.0.153 folder and the error message was "application is not compatible with your device"

    I've done that too.
    I think I'll just wait for the official 113 version and download it over the air.
    I really don't want to go back to Windows Vista from Windows 7, too much of a hassle.

    I'm thinking Windows 7 isn't your problem. I have had this happen with .122. I had to use Crackmem to "brick the phone" first. It wipes the phone of the OS and forces Apploader to install new os.

    When you look in your control panel, Is it installed?

    You should have at least two; Desktop software & Device software. Check that
    Click the Like button to thank me.
