    Plug it into your PC and see if desktop manager recognizes. If so download the .169 OS from the BB link in .169 forum and run apploader.

    Sounds like it may be bricked if you can't get it to turn on. Look for link on "nuked or bricked" to see if it matches what others are experiencing. Be patient, it can be a pain, but will eventually work it out. Did you do a backup prior?

    not as long as you follow those step and select Automatically backup all etc.....

    Have you done a battery pull with the phone on?

    Go to my computer. Then search the c drive for an .ipd file. This is your back up file.
