My 9850 freezes at about 75%-80% (just above the escape key) for several days until the battery drained. I tried BBSAK to wipe the OS, Desktop Manager and Apploader.exe to reload OS but it did not work.
Here's what I did to fix my phone and hopefully this will work for the others who are also experiencing the same problem:
1. Download and install Blackberry Master Control Program(MCP) (Standard stable version 188.8.131.52)
2. Once you open MCP, go to settings first (gray gear) and type "BrickBerry" under Enable Protected Controls and do not close the window
- At this point, do not connect your BB to your computer yet
3. Restart your Blackberry and before it tries to start up, make sure that you already connected the USB in your PC. The timing should be right. MCP should be open. If your computer recognizes your phone, check if MCP recognized your device (you should see your PIN)
4. Go to Java Loader (Java Icon)
- In my case I tried Factory Reset first, so I checked the Confirm box and clicked on the Factory Reset Button
- Do whatever you think would fix your device, try factory reset first
**You must be able to click Factory Reset while your device is starting to load.
It only took 10mins to fix my phone. Timing should be right.
Hope this helps

SO BB MCP managed to reset the briked 75%? But to the factory reset level... did you attempt the leak upgrade again?
The App Loader was able to get "PIN UNKNOWN"? Because my device (along with some others) is recognized instantaneously...
Please let me know...

I managed to get "factory reset",... but then I got greedy, and wiped os clean, and went for the leaked install as well.
Didn't work. Would only recognize "Error 507", BECAUSE BBMCP managed to delete the entire JVP - Java Program (which has the factory reset embedded)
After playing with a combination of App Loader, BBSAK, and BBMCP, I managed to get it to install, AND currently have BlackBerry Desktop Software fixing / reinstalling the leaked upgrade. I'll know when I get home if it worked.

if this methods works, someone should make this as a sticky, I just found 5 CBers with the similar problems..
this also happened to my wife's 9850 couple of months ago and it got fixed,, but the methods are using somekind of DOS software, it WILL erase everything on the phone though

NUKE, WIPE, NAL and OS all in one script - GSM-Forum
BE SURE TO LOCATE AND RENAME APPROPRIATE FILES
Personally, I use a shortcut to the App Loader (in this process), with the "/nojvm" feature in the shortcut.

I was losing my mind trying to get my 9850 back from it's continuous reboot / boot-up but then freeze / boot to about 75% and nothing more. My problem started 1 week into a 2 week trip for work. I only had my work laptop so I couldn't do anything while away except pull the battery. Very frustrating but not as bad as getting back to my home computer and trying for the better part of a month with no success. I tried everything in this post and others except for Searzy's Nuke procedure. I wanted to try that but I didn't really understand everything. The Master Control Program wouldn't recognize my device. I'm not sure exactly what helped me get it back. I read tineybubbles' post about getting the timing right and tried that with bbsak and did a wipe a few times and it finally booted past 75% after loading the latest Verizon multilanguage OS. So those with similar problems, keep trying. I thought mine was gone forever, and even with it's problems, I was really missing it after having to use my old Storm 2 for almost a month. OMG! I went so far as to buy another 9850 off of ebay but that turned out to have a bad radio and wouldn't connect with the Verizon network so I'm trying to work that out now. So glad my phone is back. I also went crazy and bought a used Z10 which I should have tomorrow. Not sure what I'll do since it doesn't have the same Bridge functionality with the PlayBook but I'm looking forward to checking it out. If not, I love my 9850. For anyone who wasn't loving theirs, try going back to a Storm 2 for awhile and you will change your mind lol! Anyway, I said all that to say this, thanks to all who took the time to post suggestions on fixing these problems. I appreciate it.

i did encounter the same problem, loading up to 75% then white screen. i found out there are two problems here. First is the battery capacity or power ( its seems that the phone need to have enough power to push beyond this point) . i replace with a new battery. Secondly i use the NUKE, WIPE, method No.7 to wipe clean the phone (this will bricked the phone) and use Desktop Manager to reinstall back the Os.
