I think the next thing to do is to delete all the programmes from the computer and start again!!
I noticed it happens when it starts to reconnect to the phone after the initialization stage ??

Ok, I deleted everything from the pc and installed and did exactly what the instructions state, word for word!
1. I downloaded and installed bbsak
2. I installed the dektop manager software that came with the Phone
3. I installed the device software I got from the link within this forum
4. Restarted the computer
AT THIS POINT I HAVEN'T CONNECTED THE BB
5. Plugged in the BB and opened bbsak
6. I did the wipe thing, after doing it the phone rebooted and came back with "reload software 507" but this is normal according to the tutorial, all good so far
7. Closed down bbsak
8. I navigated to the app loader folder where upon I deleted the vendor file
9. I then double clicked the icon called Loader (it's got a phone as an icon)
ALL GOOD SO FAR
10. At this point I followed the on screen instructions as stated in the tutorial. After seeing the sofware was checked in the list, I clicked next
11. A box came up with different tasks that the loader was going to carry out, retrieving Device Configaration
12. Device app selection
Updating your device - DONE
Load JVM System software - Done
(at this point I get a quick message saying "reconnecting to JVM, then BAM, fatal error)
Wait for device initialization
read App config
As you can see it crashes right before "wait for device initialization" I have done this several times now but alas it keeps failing at the point I mentioned. Am I doing something wrong?
Please, please, please tell me if i'm missing something?
P.S May I say a big thankyou to all who have advised me on a solution to this, I just hope I can humour you all by getting it to work

OK batdog, with all that you have been through with this upgrade, I'm wondering if the OS you're trying to install is a bit buggy... Now, I'm in the same boat as you regarding what the heck is going on, so this is just an idea I'm tossing out there for you and others here to think about.
How about going back and deleting the OS from the computer and downloading a different "Official" OS release. You can make a choice from here. Then follow the detailed instructions and see what happens. I'm thinking that if you still have the same issue, it is NOT the software but its the hardware (phone) that is having issues. Then you can call the store and relate what has occurred and maybe then they will realize the phone is defective...what do you think
I'm willing to try anything right now to get this problem fixed!!
I'm sorry for asking but I have no idea what onr to download (OS) could I please ask for further guidance on the one I need to try?
Sure, I'd try this one, 8520_184.108.40.2066_Vodafone_DE - Downloads - BlackBerry Forums only because I think Vodafone is very reputable.

Now, it is not the 18.104.22.1680 so maybe sabisgeek can lend his knowledge since he has the same model BlackBerry as you. ( I use the Torch) We may have to wait till he gets out of class to get his opinion though. However, you can try the .1036 OS while we wait?

Yeah, I used the .1036 OS for about 4 months before upgrading to .1067.
I don't think the problem is the OS. It could be the phone, but just try using a different OS, that might work. It might also have to do with an IT policy. Try doing a Factory Reset, and tell us how that goes.

Did you wipe your device before installing OS 5? This is a necessary step. Please see our how-to upgrade guide... All In One Guide - How To Upgrade Your Device - with Pictures & Videos
