    You are more than likely just unplugging it too quick.
    After that box comes up saying wipe complete, leave it alone for a few minutes. Dont even click OK.

    After a few minutes then click OK, again leave it alone for two minutes and then the phone will reboot.

    Storm 2 stuck fails to connect to boot ROM in App Loader.

    Hi guys, great guide. Simple to follow... just wished it worked for me.

    I'm using a Storm 9520, have followed the first 3 steps without any hitch... done the Device OS installation on my computer...

    BUT. when i use the App Loader to install the OS onto my phone, it just hangs on the "Updating your device" screen. seems to me that the computer is having a hard time connecting to the phone's boot ROM.

    Tried about 15 times so far and the same thing happens. :aargh4: I would appreciate any kind of help i can get. URGENT!

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    dyzfnktn, have you restarted your PC, and tried from there?

    When you start, does the phone display the error 507?

    Is the USB connected to a port that supplies enough power? Sometimes the ports in front of a PC give me errors.

    Try all of those again, hope that helps

    why to delete vendor.xml while updating OS

    why it is advised to delete the vendor.xml file while updating OS if the OS is not from your carrier, what is the logic behind this, and what happens if one update the OS without deleting the vendor.xml file ?

    The vendor file is carrier specific. If you install the wrong vendor file it is a good chance that the phone will not function properly.

    Does not work

    I have tried this update several times, but when I get to the app loader page, there are not any OS's at the top of the list. All it has are just my apps that I installed. I did everything right. I dont understand why I cant seem to get the update loaded.

    Sorry it does not unlock your berry.
    Verizon is also a CDMA carrier so you get lots of problems after their phones are unlocked.
    Is the Indian carrier CDMA or GSM (EDGE/3G)?
    There are a lot of options for unlocking, check one of the staffs signatures on this site.

    To obtain an unlock code for your BlackBerry: You will need to know your IMEI number for your BB. Look at Options/Status. The IMEI may also be found on the white sticker under the battery.
    Most carriers will give you the unlock code for your BB. Some have policies that vary from having an active account in good-standing (good payment history) to having been a customer for 90 days or more.

    You can purchase the unlock code from various vendors. These listed below are reputable vendors with good feedback from users
    1. HorizonWireless
    2. GSM phone source
