    I will give it a try tho........

    also, another question...if there is a password why have I not been given an option at any point in this crap storm to enter it?
    It sounds like it's still bricked. Did you go through the entire procedure on the tutorial? Also, see my edited post above re issue with .419 if that's what you are going to load.

    wish my luck!!!!!!!!!!!
    NOW it sounds unbricked! Try loading the Operating System. I think you're there!
    Edit:
    Here's a little info about 507 if you are interested. But for the most part, it just means the device doesn't have an OS loaded.

    EDIT: PS - I note that there is no mention of putting the battery back into the device at any point in the tutorial. I've contacted Neolantis about this to see if it is a required step (apparently, in this case it was) and to possibly update the tutorial.

    Tamara, If you are not loading an operating system from the carrier he is on make sure vendor file is deleted and it is the only operating system on your pc.

    Ok everyone! First of all a big THANK YOU for helping me out.
    After I put my own battery into Ryan's BB and tried the Desktop Software Update again it successfully loaded everything other than all of his 3rd party apps. They were almost identical to my own so I reloaded them from my last 3rd party app back up. He lost his fave theme but too bad, so sad...im just glad he has a working device! LOL.

    I am completely lost as to how the battery could possibly affect an upgrade situation like this??? sooo weird. It's not like the battery itself has any memory, does it?

    WHEW is all I can say.....I appreciate all your help...now I better go pull some grey hairs that I inevitably sprouted during this entire operation!!!! LOL

    Well, it has a little (or a lot) to do with the amount of current available thru the USB port from some (many) computers. Beyond that, it's too techy for this forum but I DO think the tutorial needs a little update to indicate the battery likely needs to be put back in somewhere along the way. Thrilled you worked it out! Which OS did you ultimately put on his device? Oh, and by the way, either his charger has gone bad or his battery may have seen it useful life come to an end. Suggest he purchase a fresh one.

    Yes. I'm not sure if it was my battery that did the trick or if I just needed to put the battery back in at some point but I put his battery in mine during the install and it booted my bb up alright.

    I installed 5.0 with .419 so he is fully up to date now. and I will definitely be telling him to get himself a new battery! If that doesn't fix his power leakage he probably needs a new charger too!

    Thanks again for everything...

    Be sure to note my post (#14) re Speed Dial in .419 if that is an issue for him.
