    Nuked Bold 9000, reload OS, wipe etc..

    I am sorry if it is not the right place to post this.

    My Bold 9000 has been nuked for a month.

    History:

    my battery went 0
    couldn't start the bold again, red light , rebooting non stop.
    Did what a tutorial told me to do: Reload an OS directly from loader.exe.
    The program didn't connect to my Bold.
    Was advised to wipe the terminal using JL Cmder.
    Tried but it doesn't connect to the terminal.

    Can somebody give me a specific answer about what exactly I should do next.

    Thanks a lot

    Hello Tyb, sorry to hear your having issues. What tutorial did you try to follow? This one from neolantis is one of the better ones we have. How-To Recover A Nuked Blackberry - with Pictures it will take about 15-20 min to run.

    If I had more info I could give you a better ansr.

    What os are you on?
    have you considered upgrading to a newer one?
    are you getting any special error or code?

    post back and we can go from there.

    Hi lshap,

    thanks a lot for your answer.

    I'll try to give you as many infos as I can:

    - My Bold 9000 is an unblocked terminal. I did it because I got it while I was working in Japan. The carrier was then DOCOMO.
    - When I was ready to subscribe in France, I tried to load the battery. Got a red light, then nothing, then the red light again and then a icon of the battery with a blue zebra on it.
    - I followed a tutorial from blackberry-france, which is the same process as the one on the link you gave me.
    - I have downloaded DM last version and for the OS, I have found on RIM website the last available OS for DOCOMO, whih is if I remember well the 4.6.0.306.
    - I deleted the vendor.xml, launched the app, followed the process.
    _ Ev erything went well until the second step "initialization of the terminal". It lasted forever until I got an error message "cannot connect...". Repeated the operation few times, same thing happened.
    -Went back on the forum I was following and was advised to wipe my Bold.
    -Followed the steps with JL_Cmder, but the software cannot connect to the terminal.

    This is where I am.

    Please ask if you need any additional info.

    Thanks
    tyb

    Hi tyb,

    We have the latest version here for your BlackBerry Bold 9000 OS5.0.0.1079

    Download: TMobileGermany_9000_5.0.0.1079

    I'm sure there are a few improvements from what you're currently using, OS4.6.0.306

    Also, I personally use BBSAK, which is available at:

    Download: BBSAK v1.9.11

    Let me know if you need any further help.

    Thanks Grimreaper.

    - I will download the OS.
    - Forgot to mention that I have tried BBsak before JL_Cmder. Same result, it doesn't connect to the terminal.

    I went through a lot of attempts with both bbsak and JL. and I need all the help I can get.

    thanks

    Sorry for the delay.

    you said you are getting "cannot connect..." does this happen right away before you can start the loading? or during?

    if its a connection error it can be a few things.
    1. driver issue
    2. hardware/usb cored issue
    3. device software is preventing the connection to the device.

    for the 3 things i named off I would try this.

    1. Completely remove and uninstall the desktop software and reboot. then reinstall desktop software. (make sure to reboot after)

    2. Try a diff computer or usb cord.

    3. Run the loader without the use of the jvm. How To Run Loader Without JVM

    hope this helps get you in the right direction.
    make sure you post back.

    I know what the problem is as I have always encountered this every single time.

    You get that message "No Device Detected, Push OK to continue"

    Go to Start Task Manager which is located at the bottom right of your computer screen.

    Go to Processes, look for BlackBerry Device Manager, right click, and End Process.

    A pop up will come up, End BbDevMgr.exe, click End Process.

    Go back to BBSAK, and click Connect.

    Enjoy

    Hi Lshap,

    thanks for the tips, I will follow your directions.
    Meanzhile, I have tried again the process on your tutorial.
    What happens is that after the connection of the terminal to the PC, Loader's first step seems to go smoothly.
    Evrything happens during the second step named i think initialization. Loader is initializing ( the progress bar goes until the end ) then Loader tries to reconnect to the JVM and at the end, when the progress bar reaches the end, the error message appears " cannot connect to the terminal, unplug and try again". During this process, the terminal screen shows an icon of an horizontal battery with a yellow zebra on it.

    P.S Sorry Lshap, I am not a native english speaker. Hope you can understand what I am writing. Additional question: what does "diff" computer stands for ?

    thanks for your help

    tyb
