    Bricked 8830 World VZW

    Advertisement



    Ok so I was updating the firmware on my 8830 VZW and it failed after restarting. So my phone is now in firmware mode where the red led blinks twice every couple seconds but no boot no anything
    USB says Blackberry device connected but I cant restore or update anything cuz blackberry software doesnt recognize a connected device, I have read that its possible to restore firmware back to unit but couldnt find any instructions
    Anyone who can direct me would be appreciated cuz I have a bricked phone right now..
    Thanks

    When you connect it to the desktop it initially doesn't recognize it right and you have the OS installed on the pc?

    as long as it is a verizon phone, you don't need to delete the vendor.xml
