    Hey guys, I killed my Passport about 2 weeks ago trying to do a reset of the OS and restore. Got the flashing red light of death. Any suggestions on how to get it back working?

    Get an autoloader from Thurask's repository here on CB and run it. (if you haven't done so already)

    What about using an autoloader?

    Can link see the phone, if not then I think it's going to be difficult to do much with it.

    I have tried BlackBerry Link but it's not working. Haven't tried an autoloader. What is the best one for Mac?

    I am not sure you can use a Mac although I'm sure someone will advise you here if you can.

    I believe you need to use a Windows PC.

    Take a look here and pick the relevant OS for your phone, download it to your computer.

    Correct, unless you have Boot Camp up and running on the Mac.

    Indeed, as a Mac user, it is not possible to use any virtual Windows, you need a kosher Windows machine.

    Thanks guys. I'm not that much of a tech person and I do not have access to a windows computer. So it looks like I'll have to take it to someone to do for me
