    Make sure your BlackBerry IS NOT connected to your computer. Locate and Open the App Loader application. Go to your C Drive (operating system drive) and navigate your way through the folders to Program Files > Common Files >Research In Motion > AppLoader. Once you are in the AppLoader directory, double click on the Loader application shortcut.

    Next connect the BlackBerry to the Computer via USB cable. But here's where the tricky part comes in with the Nuked BlackBerry. What you want to do is plug in the BlackBerry, and when COM1 switches to say USB-PIN:UNKNOWN immediately click Next. This catches the BlackBerry and takes it out of the constant reboot cycle and allows you to then reload the Operating System.

    Tip: The USB-PIN:UNKNOWN option will display for a few seconds when the BlackBerry is first connected/flashing its LED in red. With a Nuked BlackBerry, that occurs when the device is in the initial start-up part of it's reboot sequence. The easiest way to get that to happen (vs. waiting for that step in the reboot sequence where you have a tenth of a second to hit Next before you lose your chance) is to simply pull the battery from the BlackBerry. With the battery pulled, connect the BlackBerry to the USB connector and as SOON as you see USB-PIN:UNKNOWN hit Next. You have to be quick still, but using this method you are in control of the timing. From there you can put the battery back in and battery cover back on (Make Sure you install the battery or else when the OS update is completing and the device disconnects from the computer to reboot, it will lose the power provided by the USB connection and you will get an error and have to do it all over again!).

    ** If you don't get it right the first time, try again (unplug from USB, pull battery, connect and hit Next while USB-PIN:Unknown is showing). You have to be fast and the timing is key, so it may take you three or four tries.

    If after playing with it and it continues to happen, will totally try this method. Thank you! Will be reporting in shortly.

    Thanks!

    A couple more battery pulls and about 30 min of playing with the phone, checking the memory card, deleting applications, connecting to the computer and others, the phone is now performing as it should and its a pleasure to use now. Thank you to everyone for your input and help during the time of "crisis" . Thanks again and as a new member to the website I can say that so far i have been welcomed into a community of helpful people that are pleasant to associate with. I look forward to accessing this site further and thank you to everyone for your help and for welcoming me into this community of Blackberry Users.

    hey all new member here

    just got a Storm today, traded a scratched up g1 for it.

    it even came with the box, all the goodies including the 8gb card.

    all he got was the g1 and the charger lol.

    anyways its unlocked on tmobile.

    i been playing with it, loaded up gmail app, opera mini and deleted alot of pork programs that took up space.

    now im reading about these betas.

    how is the newest one?

    im running the 4.7.0.75 and its decent but i have noticed its a lil laggy and annoying at times.

    is the 191 a huge jump? is the menu faster? general everything faster?


    thanks all!

    I've been in the community for a little while now but I just discovered this site today. I had been here before reading a thread I was linked to or something but never registered. I think from now on I'll be visiting more regularly. This place is a lot friendlier than some of the other forums I've found...

    Wow .75!? No wonder he traded you for a beat up G1 :laugh2: That OS is horrible!

    This new leak (not beta!) is a HUGE jump and has TONS of improvements but at the same time it will kill your camera haha. If you want to play with the camera then I'd recommend using 4.7.0.151 or maybe even .148 Those two are quite stable, fairly good with memory, and MUCH better than .75. The only thing you won't have that this new leak does are things like flick scrolling, threaded sms, and a few others.

    Has anyone seen a problem with Weatherbug not updating the home screen! Do you know of a fix?
