    updating my 8830 caused fatal error and now will not boot, just blinks red. desktop no longer sees it. pulled battery and usb cable, reinserted battery then reinserted usb cable. keyboard does not seem trigger a response. screen remains black.
    any ideas how to force a reset without connecting to computer and without benefit of a screen?

    please advise, you savvy gurus.

    I believe you can connect a "bricked" 8830 to a pc and reinstall the OS. Have you viewed the BB 101 lectures here in these forums? There is a topic devoted to how to recover a bricked phone.
