    Fresh Reinstall of Current OS?

    Advertisement



    I was wanting to do a fresh reinstall of my current operating system. How do I wipe it and reinstall? I want to do this because I have folders in the Device memory that will not delete and there used to be stuff in there. Now I cannot access them and when I try to delete them it says they are read only and cannot be deleted, however, I created them. Maybe somebody knows this bug already? Can anyone help?

    I've tried going through the steps like I'm installing a new operating system, but it doesn't give an option to do a reinstall or anything. I installed the operating system .64 from T-mobile US, which is the one I want. I deleted the Vendor.xml file. I ran DM and it didn't do what I thought it would.

    The only thing I can think of is do not back up and restore your stuff when asked, but that means you loose everything, and you will have to start a new !!

    I don't understand. It never asked me to backup anything. I've never tried installing an operating system on my pearl before. But I followed the steps in a thread in this forum somewhere for it and it didn't tell me I needed an update or anything. It just opened up like it always does.

    Note: I did uninstall DM and the 8100 OS from my computer and then did fresh installs of them. Then I followed the steps in that thread.

    you need an application called jl_cmder

    or you could use javaloader.exe to wipe if you know the right command.

    If you can get jl_cmder i got it from another blackberry forum, you would load it up in command prompt and select 8 from the menu... it will then cause your phone to display the 507 error.

    GO ahead and load apploader from c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader\apploader.exe

    it should pick up your pin (100% of the time), and then commence with the os install..

    This will be a completely clean install...

    If you want to keep your ota and 3rd party apps, i have figured out how to back those up, if your interested the steps are on my site.. www.kradest.com

    I'm confused on how this works. I extracted the files. I double clicked install.bat and all the files just disappeared. I'm guessing it installed. Do I need to just run apploader now?

    i am lost... where did you get an install.bat?

    if your talking about jl_cmder....

    copy the contents of the zip to your c: drive...
    open a command prompt
    navigate to c:\
    then type jl_cmder.exe

    this will load the applicaiton it is dos based..

    it will ask if your blackberry has a lock password, answer the question.

    then in menu select "wipe' i think it is number 8.

    type blackberry and hit return... the load new os

    Re: Fresh Reinstall of Current OS?

    cp6169 put a link above to download jl_cmder and on the download page it said to run install.bat which is what i did. I also found a version that was an exe file that installed it. I just need to figure out how to run it I think. How do I execute it. Where is it installed. Any Ideas?

    I found it in Program Files/JL_Cmder. I ran it. I will try to wipe now.
