I have tried the steps to reload my Blackberry 8310 numerous times and it fails, the hour glass of doom comes up for a brief moment and the screen goes blank with the red light on (not flashing), then the dreaded hour glass comes back. I have tried the Javaloader as well it says connecting to device...then comes back Error: unable to open port. I tried upgrading to version 4.5, with this version I get to the point were i need to select the apps to load and u think it is working then it caomes but failed. I then down graded to 4.2 again and again could not get it to work.

Try this process, with 4.2 first, KB03485 - Run Application Loader when the BlackBerry device does not connect Make sure your USB Port is providing adequate Power also. And try Rebooting your PC, sometimes that helps.

I have a Bold that I purchased from eBay and it boots up to this message:
"No application linked
When I connect it into my laptop, windows recognizes it, but device manager does not. The PIN comes up with all "F"s.. (ie. FFFFFFF)

Hi all, newb here but I've read through (most) of the 56 pages concerning this issue, and it doesn't help me. Here's my very complicated problem:
About a month ago, I could no longer access my handheld through my USB port (BB 8310, all new cords and everything). Which means that I can't even get to step one in your process, because I cannot get the computer to acknowledge the phone. When I take the battery out, it does give me the screen with the slashed battery, but won't go beyond that so I'm eternally stuck at step one. Can anyone help?

OK guys I have the same problem as far as DM is concerned. When I go in install OS 4.5, DM does not recognize my BB as being connected. I have tried wiping it with JL commader. Same thing happens. When I get to initialization, DM says it cannot connect to device> Also, my BB keeps connecting then disconnecting about every ten seconds. I have tried the instructions in the first post several times with no luck. Can someone help pls?

WOW! That was nerve-racking. I updated the OS on my 8310 to 4.5. Went to change the theme to "Surreal" (bb homepage) and all of a sudden i got the error reset screen. Spent quite a while trying to figure out how to connect to PC via usb. Tried to reinstall the OS maybe 10 or 12 times before I tried putting the battery in while the application loader is trying to initialize the device. Finally worked and my heart-rate has finally slowed down.
I wouldn't recommend using the surreal theme for curves running 4.5, a few other posts have mentioned compatibility issues.

I orginally had a JVM 102 Error and used JL_Cmder to wipe the Blackberry (Rogers 8300)
I went to the Rogers site and downloaded the latest Software for Desktop Manager (V 4.2) and I've been trying all the steps listed in the 1st post.
I even went as far as doing the "Javaloader -usb wipe", had the battery out, battery in, no matter what I try I get An error:
"A fatal error has occurred while updating your device's software. Please try again.
Unspecified error encountered [J:0x00000005]

jtrenholm -- welcome to pinstack and i am sorry you are having this issue.
have you uninstalled DM, then reinstalled and rebooted the PC? try that. Maybe a newer version of DM? 4.5 and 4.6 are now available for download.

Thank you Cherri for the welcome!
I checked Blackberry.com and found V 4.6. I didn't completely uninstall my previous version which could be the culprit.
I'll take your advice and uninstall DM completely and install V4.6
