I too have this issue and it is so frustrating. The question will be when OS5 is officially released, will the devices having issue now have the same issue then.
Not sure how to legitimately exchange my device that does work with all other os versions.
Maybe you gusy will have to wait for BIS 2.8 lol
I was having the same problem with updating the software to 18.104.22.168 what I did was install the other BETA release 22.214.171.124 and then did APPLoader, It worked for me after that. For those who are having problem install the 126.96.36.199 and try to upgrade to 188.8.131.52. Maybe it will work for you guys as well Must be some files in the 184.108.40.206 which tell APPloader to upgrade the device.
I tried to install the 191 for a while, various config, different Desktop managers, nothing worked. I just installed 220.127.116.11 on top of the 18.104.22.168 and launched apploader, and the latest OS was found and installed working fine, you don't really have to upgrade your device to 22.214.171.124 just make sure you have both BETA versions on the machine. Hope that helps Good luck
I also am having the "unable to reconnect to device during multi stage loading operation" issue....
i have tried EVERYTHING......probably tried loading it some 25-30 times....
damn...this issue is really pissing me off...i've messed with .191 on another tour and other than no bbm5, everything else is really nice.
My Box was Windows XP, I removed the Blackberry APPs after the .191 install, installed BETA .140 Desktop manager was 4.7 but it gets updated to 5.0 when you install 126.96.36.199, I made sure the vendor.xml file nowhere to be found, not even in the trash, only had this Device os, I removed all other Device software, 9000, 8310, 8820, as I had these devices in the past, The machine only had the Desktop manager and the two BETA products, the 191 and 140,
Mine didn't work the first 20 times until I did the above, maybe I got lucky or something but seems like a reg key or file that is coming down isn't there before. Can you guys update the Tour to the 140? Did that update happen without a problem? Wish I could offer additional help Verizon Network Tour that I just got after my first tour was nuked with the 1 3 1 Blinking LED problem.
I can update to .140 just fine.
that is what i go back to everytime i try .191 and it doesnt work.
There are 2 vendor files to selete
