    Question 8100 App Loader Question?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you knew if there was another way of installing the OS on a pearl without using the App Loader....The reason being, is right now i currently have an error 507 on my pearl and the App Loader recognizes the pearl, but when trys to update the firmware gets stuck in a random loop of turning off and on when trying to connect to the Rom....Ending in an error A:0x00000022.....I was wondering if any of you can provide any help or suggestions. Thanks again

    the ONLY way to get the device OS on your blackberry is with a PC.

    I tried the thread that you have linked for me, a bunch of times. For some reason it has problems connecting to the Rom in order to install the os....

    Maybe this will help.
    KB03485 - Run Application Loader when the BlackBerry device does not connect. Not really sure. But I'm worried that that ROM error is an indication of a true hardware failure.

    Just wanted to give an update. The phone is being shown under the Application Loader. Everything works fine until i try to install OS....Then when it first starts and says "reading boot rom" it just get stuck in an endless loop of turning off and on until finally it stops and gives me an error code A:0x00000022....I dont know what else i can do to try to fix this

    Leave the battery out until you get to the step in the app loader that says connecting to device, just before when you normally get stuck and then put the battery back in. See if that will get you past it and let you complete the OS load. Hope that it helps.

    Really good idea Eddie_gauge, i actually thought about that like 10mins ago though. I tried it and it just ended up resetting it over and over again in the loop. I wish there was some way just to force the OS on this phone

    Twenty times is a lot of times
    Well, try what Eddie suggested, and then I don't know, like Rcbjr said above you may have a hardware failure. Is this device still under warranty?

    It might be, im a t-mobile employee and was given the phone by a customer because it had water damage....The phone worked fine until i tried to update the software on it....I tried to do a clean wipe with the JL_Cmder and thats when it got stuck in 507 and wont take the new software....Its not that i need the phone, it just a waste to junk such a nice phone, know what i mean

    Definitely sounds like it's the BB and hardware failure and although it was worth a try I think that water damage may have sunk it
