    Great! You said the BBM was on your phone correct? If it is, it probably wont show up right away and then do three battery pulls with a minute between each of them and the new BBM should be there

    Good deal Zoe....

    If you haven't already, be sure you have uninstalled your current OS from your PC. It is advised that you do not run 2 OS's at the same time. You will need to open and the look in Control Panel. Then select add/remove programs. You will want to remove the older OS if it is installed.

    I have got that far, now when I come to install new OS its saying "No software update is required for your device"


    Any suggestions?

    What version of DM are you using? Newer versions sometimes check for a secret vendor file on RIM's server. You can easily get by it if you disconnect from the internet while updating.

    Are you sure you got rid of the vendor.xml file? Have you done a search of your computer as Stiefler suggested?

    Well let me ask you something... What OS's do you have installed on your computer? You were trying to upgrade the OS right? If you are having problems with that, you most likely are going to have an issue with downgrading BBM.

    they should be named "vendor" and is a .xml file not document. You will need to try and locate all the RIM files of this and delete them. Not sure if there is an easier way
