    the Black Berry Desktop Manager has to be closed before you run loader.exe to load the OS
    Thanks for the advice... sadly I have tried this on a number of PC's with various OS and it does not work whatsoever.

    As soon as I downgrade to OS5, it works instantly. Truly bizarre. Truly frustrating!!

    Sorry Joe, I missed this one for some reason. I don't know of any others with this problem (but then again, I don't really know any people that are willing to try out leaked O/S's like I am)......not sure why I am so lucky to be blessed with this weird deal...lol. I even tried doing a fresh wipe and reload and it still does it. I have gotten in to the habit of hitting the lock button before I holster the phone so it's not bugging me as much as it was.

    6.0.0.600 Is the best!

    After the download is complete, install the file you have just downloaded.



    Next, browse to Computer >>> C: >>> Program Files (x86) >>> Common Files >>> Research in Motion >>> Apploader



    In that folder, you will find a file called vendor.xml, DELTE that file



    While you are in that folder, after you have deleted the above mentioned file, you will find another file by the name of loader.exe



    Run that file, you will now get the screen to initialize the upgrade of the OS on your BB, click next to continue, your device PIN will be listed on this next screen, click next again to continue.



    Now you will be introducted with a list of options to select or deselect the components you want to install.



    Carefully select only the items that you need, do not select all the chat messengers and components you know you will not use as this will eat up your precious application memory which is available on your 9700 (256 MB).



    Please read the tips I will provide you at the end of these instructions to be fully aware of what I mean, this is critical.



    After you have selected the components you want to install, click next, andthe upgrade process shall begin.



    Your phone will automatically create a backup of your settings / apps first, then it will wipe the old OS then install the new one and restore the backup.



    Should anything go wrong at this stage, you will have to wipe your device again and try again, but luckily, we have created a backup file at the beginning of these instructions, so you will still be able to restore all your contacts, emails, settings, etc.

    Well I have to say this version is the worst I have ever used!

    - Battery Drain out of this world
    - Memory loss just the same
    - After I have unplugged the headset, the next call I make it spends a second on handset mode then a second on headset mode. Either 3 battery pulls later, or plugging the headset back in fixes!

    Not impressed
