    Default Restoring from LoaderBackup

    I started updating the device software on my BB 9900 using Desktop Manager 7 on my PC. I have done this many times and know the procedures and rules.

    However this time the update started well. It created a backup, and halfway through writing files to the device, it gave a fatal error message. I had to quit and manually load the device software using apploader. That is done.

    Now I want to restore my LoaderBackup file, but to my horror, I find that the file created in My Documents is called "LoaderBackup-(2011-11-18).bbb"

    I thought .bbb was only created on Mac, so I don't know how this got created on my PC. How do I restore from this file?

    I couldn't find any help on this by searching online. If anyone has any idea, or can help, I'd really appreciate that.

    I might add that DM7 on PC restore function only reads .ipd files, not .bbb
    Unless there is a trick I am missing...

    Exact same problem for me. Tried to install the leaked version of .540. Got the fatal error message (unspecified error document J0x000000024), but it generated a .bbb file on my PC and the desktop software backup/restore tool won't read it.

    Goto BlackBerry Software & Apps - Downloads - BlackBerryOS.com and download 7.0.0.32 it will restore both the old version and the new .bbb format.

    To answer the questions...

    Yes, it is a new file format.
    No, it does not have a ipd file in it.
    Yes, I had this happen to me also.
    And yes RIM should be ashamed for introducing a new file format without giving people a way to restore it.

    Here is an article on why has BlackBerry changed the .IPD to .BBB Backup File Format.
    Hope it helps understand better.
