    Bricked my Berry during 4.5 UPG

    Advertisement



    Hello all.. I don't post offten but figured I would share this with you all. Today I managed to brick my Curve 8330 by accident. Basically I had it plugged into a USB hub (I know a big no no) during the 4.5 OS installation and half way through the upg, my hub lost power. After that it would not turn on at all. Just give me a fast flashing red light.

    So after panicing and pulling whats left of my hair out, I decided to try a few things. I pulled the battery and plugged in the USB cable. Again, fast red flashing light. I launched Desktop Manager (4.6) and it did not recognize my BB. I then launched Application Loader and it saw my BB, but had it as PIN unknown. So I decided to initiate the upgrade. This time it failed 3 quarters the way through, but it did get farther than last time. I repeated the steps and the OS was able to install without issue.

    Phew, that was a close one.

    Wow, glad you were able to get your device back in operation! We learn hard lessons by making mistakes, don't we?

    Welcome back!

    Yes we have C-many times!! But, the way I look at it, if I keep upgrading my OS on all my Berries, I give you, and Roger and Kris something to do (and provide entertainment). Also, by the time I get done I may even qualify for device expert-LOL!!!! NAH!!!

    Nothing more gut-wrenching than thinking you've bricked a device!

    You've certainly been through enough battles to deserve it, Glenn!
