    Hmm...I'm not sure what a vendor file is, I've never updated my OS other than OTA. So the OS updates I got have always been older ones. Can you tell me what a vendor file is and how to delete it? Sorry if I keep firing up the question marks

    Also, great site for a great handheld device

    Sure can once you have the OS installed on your PC navigate to the following folder

    C-program files-common files-research in motion-app loader----scroll down and you should see a file labeled vendor.xml just delete that, don't forget to empty your recycle bin as well.

    It looks like this



    In the same folder you will see a file called loader.exe after you delete the vendor file. Double click and launch that to load the OS on your phone

    Looks like this

    Wow thanks for the quick reply, with pics even! Clickin' on the scales icon now!
    Now if I'm not mistaken, this vendor file is some sort of localization database of the OS?

    Thanks and anytime

    The vendor.xml is the file that tells Loader.exe what specific carrier-branded device to you have.
    When the vendor.ml is removed or empty, the OS will load to ANY device of the specific model the OS is for, irregardless of the carrier branding (i.e., the vendor ID.) Once a carrier decides to make a public release of an OS they have been testing, the carrier simply adds the vendor.xml file to it and the OS is now "branded" to that carrier.
