I was installing the new OS v220.127.116.11 from Rogers last night. I followed the ... BlackBerry Curve forum
Phone won't turn on
I was installing the new OS v18.104.22.168 from Rogers last night. I followed the instructions exactly from the post labeled
" How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry "
However, it froze at some point during the installation. The whole computer froze. I had to shut down and since then my phone won't boot up, and the led indicator won't stop blinking red. The blink pattern is 2 quick red blinks then pause, 2 quick red blinks, pause..continuing like this.
The device also cannot be recognized by the pc anymore.
any advice would be appreciated.
First off, don't panic! This process will require a lot of patience!
Try this thread first.
If that doesn't work, you will need to wipe your device completely using this thread, then try loading the OS again.
Good luck! We're here to help!
I am going to try now and will let you know how turns out.
Well, I had to wipe my device...
but I do now have the new OS installed and it is running much faster.
I was freaked out all morning. phewww! Thanks for the advice!
Excellent! Glad you're back up and running. Kinda figured you would have to wipe it, but never hurts to try!
Goona wait after OS 22.214.171.124 cuz it had bug and other.
I had the exact same problem during install of Os4.5 but for me the device randomly lost it's connection. I think it may be because the PC itself is a little over loaded and is unstable. Is there a way to do this to a PC that hasn't had be BB connected to it previously. I would love to be able to fix this without sending it back and being without a phone for weeks
You can install a new OS without Desktop Manager
It is not necessary to use a desktop that has previously been connected to a BB, it is not even necessary to install Desktop Manager in order to install a new Device Operating System .... you can launch the Loader Application that is installed with the new operating system from this folder:

The only note is that you may need to install the Blackberry USB drivers in order for your device to connect if you do not wish to install the full desktop manager....
