I have to step out in about 15 minutes, but you're in good hands with ... General Blackberry forum
I have to step out in about 15 minutes, but you're in good hands with the Cowboy, Lola! I'll check back later, but I'm sure you'll be back up and running by then!
Ok so i rebooted my computer and nothing happened. It wouldnt connect and told me the device was not found. AHHHHHHH.
Same as before? Or is it connected and Desktop Manager not seeing it?
I plugged it in and its giving me the message that the device isnt found like it was doing earlier. My computer isnt recognizing it.
The only thing your going to be able to do since you figured it out as being the port is to try and get it to connect again like you did before. I think if you do that it will load with no problem. The hardest part will be getting that connection again as you did before and having it hold while the OS loads. You wont even be able to breath on it till its done..lol
Restart Your computer
Make sure Desktop Manager is not running
cd program files
cd common files
cd research in motion
The loader will start, click next
Select USB: <Your PIN> or USB: UNKNOWN and reload the OS
If you do not see this option
Disconnect the Pearl from the USB
Do a battery pull
While the LED is on, connect the Pearl to the USB (you have to be quick, the LED is there for a few seconds only)
USB: UNKNOWN will appear, select it and click Next
Give that a try. If you are having problems with the USB port on your Pearl, I suggest you use your fingers to keep it in place while you are doing the upgrade
So my phone wont turn on until that happens?
Sounds like there is no OS, so it will not turn on. You have to get it to reload.
Ge we have already established she has a bad port on her device so I doubt this will do any good. But you can try it lola. That was gonna be my next suggestion if you got it to connect.
Sooo...I tried the battery pull and it worked the first time but the desktop manager didnt come up so I tried it again and now its telling me that same darn message. I have to go to class tho.grrr. I hope I can get it to work later on tonight. Thanks for all your help guys, Ill let you know if anything happens later.
Some one will be around if you need help later. Let us know.
Since you have a loose USB port on the Pearl, I suggest you use your fingers to wiggle it till you know it connects, once you have that established, hold it there.
You are not suppose to launch the Desktop Manager. Just use Loader
Ok Im back. So I just plugged in my phone in the USB cord. Nothing came up as far as a bubble telling me a driver is being installed or usb not detected. In the computer manager it says blackberry smartphone is connected, so I guess that is good. But in the desktop manager it is not showing my pin or connecting to that. I dont know what to do...
If you have a good connection leave it and reboot your PC. If that doesnt work try doing as GE suggested.
Ok, but I had a question about what GE told me to. How exactly do I need to write that all in the command prompt? and when I am done do I just press enter? Ive never used it before. Didnt even know what its for haha.
