    Problem downgrading from 5.0 to .151--Help

    I decided to go back to 151 after trying out the 5.0. I wiped the phone with BBSAK got the reload software icon on the phone then used the apploader to install 151. I get the message "The Blackberry Desktop software does not have blackberry device software for the device that you have connected to the computer."
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled all software, restarted my computer, pulled the battery on my storm. Nothing changes
    I am able to load 148 through the DM 5.0
    Am I missing something any help would be appreciated.
    thanks in advance

    Only thing I can think of is DM could be checking the internet for what the current official version is. Which would not be 151 therefore it would give you a message like that. You could try disconnecting from the internet to see if it makes a difference when you go to install.

    Ok you must delete 5.0 from your pc. Then wipe your phone and install the OS you want.

    Maybe try just reloading .148 then after it's done attempt to install .151.

    Just an idea :-)

    That's what I did Kris. Once on 5.0 it didn't like going to .151 so I went back to 148 via DM then back up to BBC's 7.1.4-151

    After deleting .140 in the add/remove section on your computer....be sure check it is fully deleted off your computer. Go to... cprogram files>common files>Research in Motion> Shared> Loader Files. Make sure this folder is empty.

    Sean is correct....yesterday during my 3 hours of dinking around I did downgrade from 5.0 to 151. But this is not possible if you are using DM you must use the apploader program or no dice.

    I think you should give JL Commander a try, I have never been let down by this when wiping my phone...I will look for a link for you.

    I always wipe thrice for good luck before reloading software.
