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.

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.

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.

I use apploader for all my updates.
