    Assure her that if she backed her contacts and apps up, there will be no problem. Just wipe the device, I'm pretty sure it's necessary.

    We've already done that .. but she is afraid of wiping her device and then her PC can't connect to ROM .. So her 8520 will be dead !

    I had that problem this week alone. What I did was to uninstall the desktop manager and reload the old version 6 then wipe the phone and use the DM to load the software but don't forget to delete the vendor file.

    Nah. It can't be that. We used to be able to upgrade even with the older versions of DM.

    Still racking my brain on what this problem could be from.

    If you have several OS updating installed in your PC, try unistalling them from PC and install again OS 5.0 alone and reinstal it by AppLoader. Do you know how to do it by AppLoader?

    Then She has to make a Back up with DM and another one from her applications with BbSack, after that make a Wipe (It won't loose any information) and load OS. And if she doesn't want to make the Wipe, only have to go on her BB to Options-Security Options-Security erase before doing the respects Back ups; in this way her equipment will be as when she bought it.Then try to install OS well for the Desktop Manager or for AppLoader. It must work in this way, If not, try with a Center of Technical Service.
