    Do you have the battery in?

    If you don't, then it won't initialize the device.

    Or you may just need to wait longer...how long have you waited/

    Did you wipe the handheld before or after you loaded the OS?

    i have had the battery in the whole time. should i have taken it out?

    It did initialize up to 73% and than stayed there for about an hour. so i wiped it again and went for another try.

    No. Leave the battery in. What happened the second time?

    Weird, maybe reinstall the old OS you were using and see if the same thing happens.

    Re: won't initialize after OS 4.2

    i had backup up my BB before i installed the 4.2 and so i gave it a shot before i loaded the 4.1 back on and did a restore. It seems to work just fine now. Like the new system but am bummed there is not much memory for mp3's and still can't open up a video file from a website. ex. youtube. is there a way around this with the 4.2?
