Help! 8900 OS Reinstall Problem!
I've been skimming through this site since last night to find a solution to my problem, but there seems to be no definitive answer.
I also apologise if this is a tiresome problem you've all dealt with in other threads, but I have literally no idea whats going on.
Basically, I've bought a 8900 curve off of a friend and found it to be too slow and cluttered, also running some old 4.0-something software.
So I found a video here that said to wipe my device with an application called Blackberry Swiss Army Knife, and I did so after backing up my files which it recommended.
I have also installed three individual OS's.
I might also add that before I did all this, I tried updating the phones os with blackberry desktop software which itself I've had trouble updating, which I think I solved although I'm not sure (I had updated it because I had originally tried to update my phones software through the desktop software).
Anyway, various tutorials insist on using apploader, even though in none of the tutorials or apploader itself suggest anything to do with an OS install.
The problem is this error I get when I connect my device and attempt to reinstall the OS with loader/bbsak;
I also get this when trying to connect with blackberry desktop software;
I have seen other tutorials recommend that I delete Common files RIM, which I did (I also restored it because after I deleted it nothing was recognising my device).
I also uninstalled and reinstalled blackberry desktop software.
I literally have no idea whats going on or what I'm doing.
I hope this made coherent sense to somebody, and I hope they help.
I also really hope this phone is totally unusable.
Thank you to anyone that helps!
