    Error 523 HELP!

    BB newbie here (take it easy on me!) Got my storm on Friday, using it on Alltel, it was working perfectly until I changed the home screen with a pic of my kids and the DREADED 523 error appeared. I have been searching this site and CB and it seems like I need to wipe and reload the OS. I have downloaded the hybrid 3 OS. I want the best way (and easiest) to do this. Can you give me some advice? Is there another way? I went back to my Treo until I can weather the storm!

    Thanks!!!!!!

    No, I don't have JL_cmder yet, do I just google it to download. My biggest concern is downloading a file that may be corrupt. I keep seeing that come up in the research I have been doing. Thanks for the support, this seems like an awesome site!!!!

    Great news! I used JL Cmdr and did a reset to factory. I was going to install Hybrid V3, but I noticed in the instructions that I should have a Loader files folder. I do not have this folder, so I was hesitant to paste and try the load. The reset worked and I was able to get back to version .75. I'm thinking can I go from.75 to the V3? Your help and this site has been terrific. THANKS!!!

    Yes, I do want to install the Hybrid v3. In your instructions, you mention a "loader files" folder inside the apps folder, I don't have a folder named "loader files". So I am not sure how I should approach this step. Any advice? I am running Win XP. Thanks!

    Have you downloaded the 114exe file and installed on your computer?
    If not you will need to do this prior to installing the Hybrid. You can get the 114exe file HERE We will be happy to help you install!

    Question

    I will be working on this tonight. Question: is the 114 exe different from the Hybrid v3? It sounds like it is. Where do I load each file in my pc? Is it location specific? Thanks for all the help!

    Yes and no, the 114.exe is an executable file. The hybrid is not an executable and requires a cut and paste method over the executable once it is installed

    Once you install the .114exe to your pc. you will extract the files from the Hybrid zip.
    Once extracted you will see two files. One is the 4.7.0.114 hybrid the other is a readme file with instructions. Once you get here just post and one of the team or myself will help if you have any questions regarding the install

    Yes, they are. When I looked at them earlier, I went int nam programming. Remember I am using this on Alltel, and I don't tell them which BB I am using. I have a killer plan from Cellone 4 years ago and even adding the BB plan, it still can't be touched by anyone. $50.00 for 2 phone w/10,000 mins per month.
