    Question i'm in PANIC MODE

    Advertisement



    ok i'm in PANIC MODE!!! i have an 8100 pearl..
    i downloaded 4.5 OS and while it was loading to my desktop manager halfway through it said that it could not reconnect to my device.
    now it wont recognize my bb and i can't even turn my bb on...all that shows on the screen is what looks like a picture of a window with a circle square and triangle..but it has one of those lines through it!!!
    WHAT DO I DO!!
    Please help! I'm freaking out!

    Thank you!

    I did everything like it says but when i get to step 6...i dont have a USB PIN option...it only has <none> and USB but neither of those do anything.

    6. Select USB PIN this may take a few moments since there is no battery in the device. you might even have to select detect device in some rare cases.

    Says it might take a few moments or you might have to select "detect device".

    Just be patient and follow the instructions exactly! You might have to do this a couple of times for it to succeed.

    Use Javaloader to wipe the device, reinstall the BB handheld software and desktop software on computer. Restart the computer and then attempt installing the OS on the device.

    Don't panic ... it will work
