    Question 8300 red and blinky, unresponsive

    Though I have had BB for awhile, I just attempted an OS update using DM. Taking an 8300 from 4.2 to 4.5 as recommended. And now I have a double blink red. Did I brick it?

    Use dm 4.6...

    Use jl_cmder to do a complete wipe

    Then reload the new OS

    Hope you have a backup, the jl_cmder wipe will clean it all...

    Smile blinky no more!

    Success was achieved, this is a rough idea how:
    jl_cmdr was not working, pc would not recognize device or even manually select it.
    But I did a clean re-install of DM 4.6, the USB driver, and AT&T OS4.5, and using app loader alone I turned it into a nuked berry. (White screen of death, endless hourglass.)

    Which sadly was an improvement!
    Only then was I able to have DM recognize it, and did a OS repair through it.
    And yay! My Berry is alive!

    To all the Blackberry Super-Pro's out there I just have to say

    Gee, all the info you all have entered to make it possible for a newbie like me to do crazy cool things with Berrys -oh, and make us stop sobbing inconsolably!- well, THANKS!
