    Question Feeling sick right about now....

    Advertisement



    I DL'd now OS to upgrade and went through it to get rid of some of the theme and language specific COD's. Loaded through DM and now I get an APP LOADER 523 error. I can't get my computer to recognize my BB now to reinstall. I will be back on shortly if someone can help. I would say to send me a message on messenger but phones is KAPUT!!!!!!

    The Desktop Manager may say disconnected but if you go through Application Loader it will still recognize the device. Just make sure when you get to the device connection screen it says USB-PIN in the box. It will still allow you to continue

    do what mark says ^^ its like 'forcing' application loader to recognize the bb (an additional windown may pop up with your PIN number in asking you if this is correct) it has worked for me on several occasions.

    Run app loader with your battery out and the BB plugged into the computer. Y ou must have an OS installed on the computer. When it says it's waiting for the handset to restart, put the battery back in. This will reinstall your OS clean. Been there, done that

    I just sent you a PM, but realized something.

    I see you have an 8130, which probably means you have Desktop Manager 4.3

    Go to blackberry and download Desktop Manager 4.2 and install that instead of 4.3 and then try.

    DM 4.3 sucks at trying to connect to a device with a battery out.

    I appreciate all of the help. Just goes to show why this is the best place to get help, advice, and mentoring when it comes to being the proud owner of a BlackBerry device. I am loving you guys......REALLY!!!!!
    To let you know what I did, I ended up going to my laptop, which had a different OS already on it. I lost my 3rd party apps but recovered my calender and contacts. Thanks everyone!!!!
