    You can always do over the air (OTA), if you want to try it go to the blackberry download section! It works great...

    What about the OS? Are there any other install applets.

    DM will not reconize the radio hardware on mine. It keeps stopping at that point. I can not get the OS on the BB.

    It will not allow me to reload. I have no OS on it. I updated to 4.1 and it screwed up my BB. I tried to remove and reload 4.0, 4.0.2, and 4.1 all get up to finishing reinitialization and load radio software. Progress bar indicates it is connecting to rom then get error message that it can not connect to radio hardware. I have tried a new battery and data cable as well. I also have followed the directions for when it does not reconize your device thread. None of it does any good.

    Just by chance, have you tried different desktop manager versions? Might be worth a try seeing as you tried everything else.

    I tried 4.0 with the 2 different 4.0 versions and 4.1 with the 4.1 version. I have tried both of them. I did not try the 3.* versions of the desktop versions.

    malkamus,

    OS 4.2 is not available but you might try installing Desktop Manager 4.2, since nothing else works. You can find it for download here, Desktop Software Downloads.

    Re: Alternative loader

    Ok third battery, DLed 4.2 DM. Now with the battery in the DM wants to load almost 42gigs onto my BB. Without the battery it is around 10 megs. I still can only get the initial rom load, it then tries to erase programs from an empty BB, then loads, initializes and stops on the radio software still. Is there any way to verify voltage getting to the BB from the battery? I am beginning to wonder if it is something in the connection to the batteries. There is no way to verify charging and such without the OS(atleast from what I can see.) The error when loading radio tells me to install a charged battery. When I run a voltage test on the battery I get 3.7volts.
