    Need help upgrading OS to ANYTHING....

    I have downloaded the 5.0 ..230 and i have tried to install this plus a few other ones. Everytime it gets to "connecting to boot rom" my Blackberry tour shuts off and disconnects from the computer. i have tried this with
    DM
    loader
    and shrink-a-OS
    and the result is always the same. Any help would be great. I am missing something somewhere?
    Please help....

    What happens if you leave it alone? Usually during an upgrade, my phone restarts a few times and can sit on a black screen for a while.

    I tried that but the phone totally disconnects from the computer. Im using xp pro. Its not just the black screen. I get a notice that the bb is not longer connected. I was hoping that it would turn on and keep going but no. I can hear the beep from the computer when it disconnects. I am clueless.

    Try leaving the battery out while it does this step.

    Isn't your phone already wiped?
