Error Code: 407
I bricked my blackberry and gave up after trying every tip under the sun.
My problem was: After loading the OS (188.8.131.52) on the storm it would reboot and get into a rebooting cycle. Red light on for 12 seconds then off for 5 seconds, and on and on for hours.
I noticed that using cfp.exe to run cmmands was more dependable than javaloader. Javaloader would not connect at all giving the :
Connecting to device...debug: COM error during Open: (0x80040001)
Error: unable to open port
while cfp would happily run the info command.
So I ran this command:
cfp -u -v5 HOS and the storm reported HOS was set to developer mode.
After that the storm finally booted to a whitw screen reporting:
Device Error: 407
....and there where I am right now.
Does anyone know what this means and where to go from here?
ok so I stopped being lazy and ran help :cfp help hos
The HOS takes the device out of Head in Sand mode. Namely, after sending
this command, the device will NOT reset on a catastrophic error and will display an error code.
So I need to find out about this catastrophic error 407.

when i tell people how to install OS builds, i always tell them to plug the USB into the back of the PC if its a desktop, and put the phone back there...and wait till the DM tells you its done...laptops, you're on your own...
btw, has anyone heard of the acronym 'PEBKAC'?

During the OS install whetehr U use the loader.exe /nojvm or DM or cfp -u load rimxxxx.sfi, the results are:
1. DM or loader quits with the error "unable to reconnct during a multistage install"
2. cfp quits saying
*** CFP Version 184.108.40.206
*** CMDLine: -u -v5 load rim0x04001404.sfi
blah blah blah
--> Connected to bootrom over USB
[ Uploading RAM Image 0x10000000 ]
blah blah blah
--> Received COMPLETE_DONE
[ Writing 0x00000071 ] [############## 100 ##############]
--> Elapsed time: 51954 ms. Throughput: 2257.791 kbps
--> Requesting BootImage Exit
--> calling BBDevMgr::Unadvise()
================= load end
as you can see loading completes to a 100% to the flash rom, then tries to reboot...and that is when 407 screen shows up.
Loader is done doing its thing and I should see a 507 error telling me to load java apps now.
Instead this 407 shows up.
Question is does anyone know what 407 is?
Thanks guys/and or gals

Already tried JLCmdr
JLCmdr gives that unable to open port error, when trying to communicate.
No matter which option I try on the JLCmdr.
I don't use a hib, and connect direct to USB port.
Any one know how to ask RIM for meaning of this error code?

Have you tried using another computer. I bricked mine on my office desktop and could never get anywhere with it. I even had it plugged into the back of the pc and would still get errors. I downloaded JL & DM on my laptop and did a wipe and restored .75 on my phone without a hitch. I think there something on my desktop that does not like berry upgrades.
