    I need help! So I attempted to install 5.0.0.230 last night and my phone wouldn't let me upgrade from 4.7.1.40 to 5.0.0.230, Desktop Manager and AppLoader both told me that there wasn't software to upgrade to or that the chosen OS wasn't compatible with my device.

    So, I bricked my phone with BBSAK, redownloaded manufacturer's OS, deleted vendor file, reloaded. Then attempted to upgrade to 5.0.0.230, but same issue. So finally I just bricked my phone and attempted to put some .alx's and .cod's from the 4.7 that I knew would work for file explorer and what not, but after I loaded the hybrid 5.0.0.230 I rigged, and the phone wouldn't even start.

    So finally I just loaded 5.0.0.230, but now the clock, calendar, and file explorer don't work. I can't take pictures and save them or videos.

    If someone could give me a bit of direction on how to get my OS to work properly, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Did you delete the vendor file?

    Yes, I made sure to remove the vendor.xml file after the first time I bricked my phone.

    Every upgrade I attempted was after I had removed the vendor file.

    I know a few times myself and I've seen it on other machines that the vendor file pops up in places its not suppose to be. I would recommend trying a search including the hidden files and folders to see if there is one that itns where its suppose to be.

    There are instructions to that here if you need them.

    I will definitely try that. Hopefully iy works! I love 5.0.0.230, but I really wish that I had all of the features working right.

    Ok... I had the same problems with my Tour! Drove me nuts, cause I never have these problems with my storm... Search for that vendor file like Rellims said EVERYWHERE... But that wasn't the fix. I always start there if I have issues. What mattyg had for me for a fix was... Wipe with bbsak a couple of times and then launch loader from there. You have. To have bbsak 1.5 in order to do this though. Worked great and that seems to be the fix with my tour loads!

    So all you did was wiped your device a few times over and then installed straight to 5.0.0.230?

    I will be REALLY excited if you are right.

    Wait, so no shrinking the os at all?

    This is so weird, because I messed with a whole bunch of stuff on my storm and didn't have any problems.

    Well, I'm going to go for the BBsak multiple times and hopefully that works.

    Thanks man! I owe you.

    Rigging random hybrids doesn't always work well. Try straight .230

    Wipe with bbsak 2-3 times and then launch loader from bbsak... You can shrink but it has to be done after you have loaded the initial OS on your phone... You owe me nothing until it works! Then maybe you'll have an answer for me one day!

    Yeah, I didn't seem to have any problems combining 4.7.0.148 with 5.0.0.230 on my storm. I just overlapped the non-working .cods and .alx files with .148 files for the camera, clock and calendar to work.

    When you say initial OS, you mean 5.0.0.230, right?

    Ya, you have to put .230 on your phone first and then you can shrink it and then go through the loader process with shrink and remove the stuff you don't want! Without putting it on your phone first... Shrink will split the OS and not load all of the core OS! I have yet to figure out why shrink does like 5.0 but it doesn't...

    I'm not sure reloading the original OS then 'upgrading' to 5.0 is helping any either. Seems the whole point of wiping the device is to get completely rid of the original OS so you can go straight to 5.0. Sure worked good for me. Seems many folks who have had problems have installed it over the top of an existing OS.

    It didn't work.

    I wiped my Tour 8 times with bbsak 1.5 prior to trying to load 5.0.0.230.

    Back to square one.

    I don't see a need to wipe it more than one time. As long as you have the 507 error, you are ready to go to the next step.

    Go through this thread, starting at the 4th post which explains exactly what to do: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...es-videos.html
    Follow it slowly and carefully.

    Keep in mind there are some leaked OS's that do not work well on some devices.
