    Ok so I assume you had .148 installed on your PC (with no other OS's installed)
    Installed V6 on top of .148 on your PC
    Run shrink (browse to your OS folder) select the options you want to remove
    Click launcher loader button and you should be good

    Did you disconnect from the internet when attempting to upgrade?

    Follow the instructions on in this link
    http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...-everyone.html

    After that finishes then run shrink and click the launch loader button

    **Now be sure to have all other OS's deleted off your PC except for .148**

    Download V6 without the .90 unless you want to test out and see if .90 will like your phone

    Once downloaded just follow those steps in the thread I gave you.

    On your phone go to options.about it should show Version .148 platform .181

    Then go to options>advanced>applications>highlight system files and push bb button and select modules scroll down the list and you should see 5.0 files mixed in with the 4.7 files


    If you do then you are successful
