    Had a hardware issue with the original pearl last week, so i exchanged it on saturday for a new one . . .sunday night rolls around (after over 25 hrs without internet) and sprint finally fixes the issue and after a month of service, signs me up for BIS. . . . fast forward to 2 am monday morning, searching for the old programs, and some new ones, to sustain my 8130 I stumble across this (gallery.mobile9.com/f/293149/) PDF reader, as noted on the forums here. So I download it, and of course, fall asleep to it downloading. Who would hav ethought my alarm actually wouldn't go off the one day I am off of work? Oh well, I roll out of bed around 11, to only see my berry's hourglass churning away. . . . and that is as far as it has gotten across 5 hours.... HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (already pulled the batt about 6 times..held power on to no avail...)

    Sorry to hear that Chris because yes, unless you wipe & reload OS as Pete has instructed... you truly are bricked, without alternatives.
