    Endless Reboot Bricked Bold after upgrading to 5.0.348

    I believe I totally bricked my phone installing 5.0.348

    I'm with Celcom Malaysia hence I disregarded the warning with AT&T

    At first everything went fine, it rebooted OS5.0 came up and everything seemed fine and dandy. I installed my apps and all was still good.

    I updated Blackberry Messenger (and it rebooted once fine), facebook, Googletalk and MSN Messenger. All proceeded smoothly.

    Then I tried a battery pull...

    And now all of a sudden...it's stuck in an endless reboot cycle. Red light steady, then it goes off and then tries it again. nothing on screen, just black.

    Even when plugged into the USB port (when I was trying to wipe it again with BBSak), the computer won't detect it and hence I cannot start the restore/wipe process

    I'm pretty upset that I lost this phone and have no idea on how to restore it.

    Any ideas?

    Big BEWARE on this OS build...

    Uninstall 348 from your PC
    Load 238 to your PC
    Delete the vendor.xml file
    Remove the Battery from your device
    Connect your device to your pc through you usb cable
    Launch Loader.exe
    Click next, you may have to do this a couple of times before it will read your device.
    install your battery
    Downgrade your OS
