    Default Trying to rescue a found 8800...

    OK so this story in a nutshell: did an office clean up and found an 8800 in an old desk, so I swooped on it and took it under my wing. Entered the password in wrong 10 times to wipe it, put it through the desktop software and started wiping it to start over...an OS update became available so started that...everything is going great until I get this message at the 'Reconnecting to JVM':

    "Application Loader was unable to connect to your device. Please re-connect your device, enter the password, if required, and click Retry."

    Re-connecting the device does nothing, tried it several different times, tried it with a different OS but still get this message...

    Any 8800 owners want to help me out so I can bring this thing back to life?

    Thanks

    No not yet, still test driving the basics and the hardware at the moment.

    Updating the OS as we speak...

    Now running 4.5.0.174

    Awesome, got my sim card in and it works, has T-Mobile markings etc but must be unlocked
