    Vista File Structure Question

    New to Vista - in XP the loader program looked in c/program files/common/rim/shared/loader files to find the os to load

    in Vista, what file does the loader look in to find the os you want to load??

    On mine it is C-program files (x86) then the rest of the path is the same

    Nope - nothing resembling "shared / loader files" under c/program files/common/rim

    If shared or loader folders are not present that mean the BB OS is not installed on your pc.

    Did you check control add/remove programs to see if it was listed in there?

    Having just switched Storms at Verizon, mine has the official 148 os we got not to long ago. I was running Crack's V8.5 on my old unit. Here's my question - what can I load (by writing over) the 148 I have now - probably not one of the hybrids??

    If you want to install 8.5 on your new phone then you will need to download and install the .151 OS to your pc. Then download and install 8.5 on top of .151 then you can install on to your phone.
