  1. Hey guys,

    not too sure if I’m doing something wrong but after downloading and installing the OS on my comp like I normally do, I can’t seem to get it going through Apploader.

    Here’s what I’ve done:
    Program files>Common Files>RIM>Delete Vendor file>Apploader>Only thing that shows up are my list of applications

    Please advise.


    • I haven’t had any problems running no need for an upgrade. Maybe when telus releases a new version I will. Hate the trouble upgrading just to find out your going back to your last version.

    • Some firmware versions install more then one vendor file on your computer. Perfom a detailed search on your C:/ drive, including hidden and non-indexed files. It should find a second vendor.xml somewhere. Delete it and you will be able to see the upgrade.

  2. No veo la necesidad de hacer upgrade. Tuve problemas de tiempo de respuesta con mi actual version de OS 7 pero se debia a unas aplicaciones que descargue. Lo que hice desinstalarlas y voi la!

  3. Thank man its work just as u said..!!! @shumkar. preciate the efforts.

  4. blackberry suxks big time i have been using it since last bloddy 2 yrs….f-d up services—vodafone + blackberry is another fucked up combination—FONE HANGS EVERY MIN….ALL THE TIME ERRORS (RIM CAUGHT AN ERROR) S-T IT IS…..will never ever go for it again

  5. A lot of people complain about BB crashing, freezing etc, my experience has taught me that those are the same people that download a lot of crap, they dont worry about firmware updates.
    If one was to use blackberry for what it was intended for, office away from the office, credible social media, then all complaints would dimish.
    If one wants a multimedia device one needs to consider, Android or IOS. Bear in mind that all operating systems have their flaws that can be easily managed if one knows why they are comitting to an OS.

    Turn work into play and vice versa then you shall crasp the true concept of living.

    Warm Regards
