help: 8520 wont start
the problem started with the 8520 stop working...
it will load then started to fade to white screen
after using the app loader to restore the os
the problem got worse...
even the app loader wont detect the blackberry
it will detect for a second after batt removal
then the app loader wont detect it anymore
Hey Bongel.... :)
Look in my signature and download BBSAK (click on the link in my signature for a download link), and also read and follow the How to Recover a Nuked Blackberry (link also in my signature). I think between the two of those - your blackberry will be back up and going.
I recommend reading through the 101 session several times before attempting....so you know what's coming up next, because you have to act fast. :)
Let us know if you have any other questions.
tried the 101 guide from crackberry but still no respond...
the problem is that the apploader stop half way thru the process
while using the bbsak program, the program does not even recognized that the blackberry is connected
any other suggestion?
When you have the App Loader up and going and you plug you phone into the computer, does it ever say PIN number unknown?
Did you read the lecture series of the How to Recover a Nuked Blackberry, article?
yes for a sec ... then in the middle of the application loader its stop working
yes... i already check the usb hub root to set it off the automatic power saving
If you plug your phone in, open bbsak, pull the battery and reinsert it and the phone start to boot - or whatever it does - it still doesn't show up in bbsak? Even just for a second.
I have done this several times with my blackberry after nuking it. There is just a few seconds that you get with both BBSAK and the App Loader to make this work.
Just for kicks - I remember this from a while a go here on the forums, open 2 instances of the App Loader and try that.
now the problem while the app loader is loading (initializing the os)
on the 8520 shows blackberry progress bar
then in a while it turns white
im wondering whether this is the problem with the lcd because on pearl i had the same problem with the 4 led solder point
Are you letting it finish? Were you able to get BBSAK to work?
bbsak can not work since it can not detect the pin of my 8520
after going white screen. the app loader stop working...saying something like the bb is locked with password or something
I keep my 8520 under password and one fine day I bricked it to load a new os... and the password prevented me to. I had a password protected brick!! :eek:
Have BBSAk wipe the device (the factory reset set, not the device wipe set), it will clean the password lock from it. :) If BBSAK fails to do so, use vnbbUtils!
After that, you should be able to reload the os!
Cheers for your helpful 101 on how to recover a nuked blackberry. Unfortunately it did not help with my 8520, which has the familiar start up 'white bar loading halfway then stopping' problem. The problem appears to be that instead of seeing the option 'USB-PIN:UNKNOWN,' I see 'USB-PIN: xxxxxxxx (my pin number).' I tried clicking next anyway and it simply says "The Blackberry Desktop Software does not have Blackberry Device Software for the device that you have connected to the computer. Contact your wireless service provider or system administrator."

If the loading bar stops under the letter E below the word "blackberry" just wait twenty minutes. It usually loads ...happened to my 8520 couple of times.
