Heavily bricked BB 9790 - 4 LED blinks
My Blackberry has a very bad problem.
I connected it to a wall socket to charge. Then after some hours I realized that i couldn't turn the phone on. No display reaction, just red diode blinking 4 times, a little break (2 secs) and the same is over and over again.
Pin is shown as 0 or as undetected.
I tried to use few different solutions:
Apploader.exe - not able to connect to phone, PIN can't be detected (PIN_UNKNOWN or sth like that). I ONCE got a screen to choose software to download it to phone but it was only ONCE. No way to connect it (w and w/o battery and fiddling with timing). A few seconds ago it asked me that I have last chance to enter correct password (but it don't want to accept any of the passwords that was created; device itself has no pass).
BBSAK - can't detect PIN and connect to phone. Message: "No device detected, push OK to continue"
JL_Cmder - no way to do something - wipe and device info not working.
BB Master Control Program - can't detect phone; not able to do anything
Desktop Software - is trying to flash the phone but hangs on "Waiting for phone to initialize" or sth like that.
All I get is just 4 blinking diodes which drive me crazy.
Please help me and tell whether I have to replace boot IC or not.
In Poland there are no BB Services to execute the phone's warranty.
Desperately waiting 4 your hints.
Note: Battery is continuously and rapidly draining when inserted into a phone.

Yes, the same result as without this switch. I wonder if I'm able to connect it somehow. I tried 5 different programs and none of them was able to connect.
In my opinion there is something worse than just software problem (but phone was neither dropped nor immersed in water).
BTW: you mean "Apploader.exe /nojvm", don't you?

Have you tried the Bold 9000 way to get a bold back :
Steps (to be applied with patience):
1. Take your battery out.
2. Plug in your Blackberry Bold and wait (with the battery left out).
3. Leave your Bold like this until you see a sign on your screen that looks like a battery with a red line through it.
4. Now that you see the icon, put your battery back in and let it charge.
5. Your Blackberry Bold will turn back on by itself.
6. Let it charge until it is full without interruption!
Be patient during this process and while step 4 is happening, go and DO SOMETHING ELSE! Your Blackberry Bold might just need some privacy during this process (mine did).
Thank you very much for your hints
Unfortunately I'm not able to turn on the display. The diode stays red for a short time (with battery inserted the "solid red" time is longer), then diode blinks 4 times and pauses for a second. Then it just loop this cycle (blinks 4 times and pause, blinks 4 times etc.).
I plugged it into a computer but you didn't mention whether it must be a computer or a charger. None of them is interacting with phone in other way than the red diode in a loop.
Edit: I have an idea. I will try to use these tools on Win XP virtual machine or real computer (when it will be possible). I will report the results. I am currently using Win7.
