    Post Almost lost a Bold....

    Hi All...


    I;ve not long been a Bold owner and decided this week to dable in the 5.0 OS.... well..

    I wiped the phone and was all going well the 5.0 OS was great....

    I then decided to downgrade and revert back to 4.6.0.282 as I wanted my apps to work and I dont have the exe yet for the .291 OS... well thats when the fun started..


    I wiped the device back to 507 Screen using BBSAK and attempted to use the loader to reload the device using the loader app... and nothing... all I got was the FATAL error messge... no sweat I though and decided to reboot the phone and PC and try again....

    No joy... trying to keep calm and wonder if my new bold was now a very expensive paperweight.. I went on the hunt for a solution and came across this link

    What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ


    Success... took almost and hour to reload the device but all is well and the bold lives on.


    Moral of the story is... Back up 1st and do your home work before attempting anything tricky.

    Oh yes.. a very scary place indeed... at one point the PC refused to recognise even the unknown COM port.
