Well I don't know what I screwed up this time but I now have a deadberry. The only thing it will do is flash the red led. flash.......flash.flash.flash. What have I done!? Is there any hope for my Curve? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have searched, and found hope for the reboot cycle, but I did not see anything for only flashing red led.
Well, none of the above worked on my Berry. My new one will be here tomorrow. Thank goodness for warranty. I don't know if I was doing something wrong, or if mine was just dead dead. Thanks to everyone for the help.
Sorry for not being able to get you back up and running, but happy to see your are getting it replaced. And don't forget to backup your phone once in a while. It'll save you tons of grief down the road. Good luck.
I was unable to find the "apploader" program on my machine. I found the "loader" program in the same folder, are they the same file? No matter what I would do the software would not detect my berry. I even tried jl cmndr and it would not find it either. I just hope it doesn't do this one day when I am out of warranty. Thanks everyone for the help. This is a great site for dumbberrys like me. And I backup on a weekly basis. I learned my lesson years ago on the good ole Palm.
I also have had the same problem on a number of blackberrys (I am in IT support). I have not been able to recover any from the 4 blinks of doom. It simply never gives any option other than com ports in the AppLoader, even when using LOADER.EXE /NOJVM
It seems to never get to the point at which USB works.
Anyone know of deeper methods of resets? Test points?
