How to wipe 8220 with no battery
i have an old 8220 that i'd like to get rid of, but i don't think i wiped it before throwing it into a drawer 2.5 years ago.
the battery's swollen and not working, so i can't start it up to check the status of the data.
i had read that i should be able to connect to a pc through usb without a battery, but when i tried connecting it with usb with no battery in, it won't connect, and i can't get it to start up on usb power either.
any ideas? is there anything else i can do?

Welcome to CrackBerry! No you can't run it without a battery. Once the app loader detects the device, you need to pop in a working battery to get it to load a new OS
