    Guru,

    It sounds like your BB is not capable of doing a wipe. Since all I can determine from your post is that you have a mess on your hands, I'd start completely over. Remove DM and the the OS from you p-c via Control Manager, add/remove programs.

    I'd download and install DM 4.3 - I KNOW that it works - I still use it. (After you get past this hurdle you can upgrade DM to any version you want to.)

    Then I'd install the OS (download it if you don't have the install package) to your p-c and delete the vendor file BEFORE you install it to your BB.

    Follow these instructions to upgrade your OS. Take your time and CAREFULLY follow each instruction. This process can take an hour or more - don't be impatient. Good luck.

    A fatal error has occurred while updating your device's software. Please try again.

    when you plug your bb in the pc, it wont read it because it needs to reinstal the drivers for the usb, and when you reset the blackberry while its connected to the usb it will download the drivers for your blackberry while the bb powers on,

    I think the problem is your unit is in a constant loop of turning on and off. If I'm not wrong, your led would come on red and then off and your PC would continue to detect and undetect the phone I'm I correct. If this is so, it may be a hardware problem but you can try the following step. If you are lucky, you may get your BB alive again.

    install your DM and your handheld software. Make sure to delete vendor.xml in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader folder.

    next, open up your command console (start->all programs->accessories->command prompt)
    type in "cd C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader" then enter
    then type "loader /nojvm"

    now plug in the usb to your BB, click next on the loader window. Wait until the loader program detects your usb:unknown and immediately click on next. Then proceed to install your OS from there.

    This method is not a guarantee you will get your BB back but give it a try. You have nothing to lose but I suspect you will still get the fatal error message.

    when mine does this and the comp wont detect my bb i have learned to take the battery out nplus your usb port in and prompt it to find by usb. then it usually works and i put the battey back in a few minutes after the upgrade starts. good lck
