    Hi guys I was plugged my BB into my mac last night after I downloaded Desktop manager for it and it prompted me to update the software. It downloaded the update and was in the middle of installing it on my phone. The cable that connects my phone to the computer is really sensitive and I accidently bumped the cable and it got disconnected during the update. Now when it turns on it just has a white and screen that says " App Error 200" and a reset link. Whenever I reset it, it goes to the same screen. I'm thinking maybe I can install a new OS via desktop manager, but DM can't even recognize my phone since it can't get past the white screen. I tried doing it without the battery in the phone and all that shows up is a picture of a battery with a red line going through it and it makes no progress from there.

    To make this matter worse, I'm expecting a call today about a possible job opportunity so I need to get my phone up and running ASAP! Any suggestions? I read the how to recover a nuked BB in crackberry 101 but I don't have windows so I don't think I can do it, in addition to my computer not even being able to recognize my phone.

    Good news! For some reason DM finally recognized my phone after the 19th time it rebooted. I was able to install the OS again. Thanks for the help and quick replies!
