    Last night I tried the procedure for 50 times to no avail.
    Can you be more specific as to when exactly do you plug the battery in?

    Step 2 is the important part.

    Been there, done that. And failed miserably over and over again. I gave up and sent it back to the seller today.

    this update is for 9900 only, don't even think of trying to install it on 9930 . hopefully the cdma carriers will soon release a similar update for the 9930 bolds.

    Thank you so much!!! I updated to .503 a couple days ago and today it died randomly. Woke up this morning and it wouldn't turn on. I was about to throw my 9900 threw the wall until I saw this. Downloaded .540 official release. Deleted the old .503 from control panels, deleted vendor then connected my 9900 to my pc. Clicked update and it started to boot up again!!!

    Thanks a lot for the Tips.

    My 9900 just get bricked last night with flashing red led.
    After looking many forum where people say there is no other choice, I saw this thread and I download the .540, and I could reload the OS following your advise.

    Cheers.

    I had a phone brick (or so I thought), but it turns out it wasn't charging. The battery icon changed to a little "plug" icon (not the lightning bolt charging icon). After a few battery pulls it would charge. After a software update to 7.1.0.74 I haven't seen the same problem.

    My understanding then was that it was nuked and not bricked. By defn, a bricked phone can't be brought back...

    Gave up, sending it back to RIM.

    Contemplating getting a 9810, but just love how the 9900 feels.

    The title is already incorrect, being an end user one cannot unbrick a phone, if they can then it's not bricked. Nuked would be the correct term.

    Turns out in the process of making somewhat of a hybrid with the .503 radio and the .585 files my 9900 nuked. I was stuck at the blinking red LED for a good 10 minutes until I figured I'd just go about installing the OS as I would if I were to install a fresh upgrade with a clean wipe using the command prompt method to bring up the loader.exe with no jvm. Worked. I think everyone's nuked berries should be able to get revived now. As far as I know this method has worked for me, if someone else has tried it and it hasn't worked please report back.

    Are you sure you opened command prompt and used the loader.exe /nojvm method?
