    I have tried to follow them to the letter and I see it recognize my pin and ask me for my device password. As soon as I enter in my password it cycles off again

    This is the second time in 3 weeks that this has happened to me.
    It is because of the OTA Theme downloads that are not compatible with the OS

    OK - I went to sleep and now I am ready to try again. If anyone has their ears on I would appreciate some additional guidance.

    I cannot get the BB to stay on long enough to run the app loader.

    I also read where I can download the OS and reinstall it. Does the BB need to be recognized to do this? I am sure it does. If so, how do I get over this hump of the BB not being powered on long enough

    Re: EMERGENCY! need BB doctors!

    I am so thankful for the plethera of information found in forums like Pinstack.
    I had downloaded a Theme OTA that was not compatible with my 4.1 OS. I am relatively new to the BB world and I am slowly learning just how tempermental OS's are with compatibility.

    For all theme junkies like me- only download themes that are compatible to your OS and even then there is no gaurantee that your system will shut down.
    I had the hardest time trying to get the BB to connect to the Desktop so I could perform a wipe. Yes - a wipe is the only way out so get used to the idea.
    I tried several suggested such as the one posted here
    Pull battery, connect usb with battery out, run app loader and when you get to the area that says device application selection slap battery back in and continue. You will lose info if not backed up but it will get you working. use this thread as a reference
    Unfortunately this did not work for me because the BB would still cycle through the power just as I was trying to connect to the Desktop Manager.


    Search the forums for this title:

    Re: EMERGENCY! need BB doctors!

    problem solved. just took me a week to find a PC. Don't bother calling anyone for help if you don't have a PC because they wont do anything. I just find it hard that if my phone stops working I need a certain kind of computer to fix it. Seems wrong to me. If I've never connected my phone to my computer why does it matter if I have a mac? There should be an OTA fix to re-install the OS. Just my opinion.

    Re: EMERGENCY! need BB doctors!

    Arnagorski, I understand what you are saying, you did have a unique scenario where your BB was rebooting in a loop, no? Sort of hard to fix something OTA, if the unit can boot and stay booted long enough to connect.

    WRT to not running Win32: the linux, bsd, dos, os/2, and win x64 guys are in the same boat I believe. An economic design decision, I'm sure. I don't know what to tell you.
