Installed 126.96.36.199 - Can't Get Tour to Recognize New OS, Help Needed
Hey guys I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong here. I deleted the vendor.xml file on the new OS, I uninstalled the previous OS from my computer so really there should not be anything holding up this from working at this point. I have tried to disconnect the internet and it still doesn't recognize to install the new OS.
I go to the C: -> Program Files -> Common Files -> Apploader and open the Apploader.exe file from here and it still doesn't seem to recognize the 188.8.131.52 OS.

I moved this into here because there are several users reporting this. This thread is a good place to start trouble shooting. First thing to do is do an advanced search for the vendor file. Sometimes there are more than one hiding.

Trying to get the browser working.....
What would happen if I put 4.7 back on the phone, then just loaded .191 back on over top without wiping first?

You would go through same process as Loader.exe performs a wipe and if you watch the phone, you will notice a flash of Reload Software 507 error for a few seconds. Wipe is recommended is issues arise and also if you are planning on installing a hybrid. I personally never wipe unless my phone is acting out. I hope this helps.

Hi guys, I am one of those guys that will stay up all night to try and figure out how to fix this problem. After sleepless nights I could not figure out why I can't load 191. I have no problem with any other OS for this phone. I decided I wanted a new phone to try it out. I called Verizon, told them that I had a problem with my trackball, which I did, so they can send me a new one. They did without questioning me. I received it today and noticed it was a green dot unit, which meant the trackball is fixed. It had a totally different feel anyways. So the first thing that comes to mind is to try out the new OS of course. Followed all the regular instructions and it installed perfectly. I ended up downgrading because of all the software issues but I wonder if it's because this unit is a green dot unit that allowed this OS to work. Maybe the trackball is a different hardware and the driver this OS is installing is not compatible so this might be the reason for the fail. i just thought I'd throw that out. Let me know if this helped at all or was this already thought about. Thanks guys and I love the forum.

I have a question/suggestion.. could it be that this is why it never made it out of rim? could this be a known glitch in the os or no?

that is my opinion as well.

it has to be just a problem with the software and RIM knew about it.
