    I bought an 8700 off ebay. Worked great, until I mistakenly downloaded a version 4.2 theme on it(its 4.1). Now it will not reboot, I get the hour glass for 5 seconds, the red LED comes on and the cycle begins again. tried to use DTM to uninstall the theme but it wont stay on long enough for the app loader to rcognize it. Techs-HELP please.

    I had the same problem once before and saw a link on here which showed me how to wipe my BB and start anew. You will have no OS on you BB after the wipe and you may reinstall the 4.1 OS or go ahead and upgrade to the 4.2 software if you choose. The link is below.

    thanks guys, stayed on Pinstack all weekend trying to resolve the problem, but I was unable to. Have sent the phone to BB Repair Shop, they said they would wipe it and install the latest OS on it for $50. I still will have under $100 in a really nice 8700. Live and learn.
