    It's very possible it had theme's or apps that aren't compatable with the new OS. Try this:

    CrackUtil to do it, it will clean everything out of your memory.
    If not proceed to: Upgrading Process Start
    Use the link above to download it onto your PC, and install it. Follow the wipe instructions found on the post.
    Try opening up loader.exe shown below, and if your device is recognized, you can proceed with the upgrade. Otherwise go into your Control Panel, select System, Hardware, Device Manager, USB Controllers, right click each Root Hub, select Properties, select Power Management and clear the checkbox like this:

    Now when you move on to the next step you will have to disconnect the device from your PC. Go to this folder here:

    Click on Loader, select next, and be prepared to select next again (yes, it will become clickable).

    Pull the battery out, then put it back in, and plug in the USB, then AppLoader should see a device has been connected. Select Next as soon as this happens. There's only a small window of opportunity, so you may have to try a few times to accomplish it. You should now see the upgrading process begin.

    Desktop Manager won't do it, and if loader won't either, it's time for the nuclear option:

    Do you have a media card in it? And what 3rd party software are you putting on? Other than those, you might want to try getting another SIM from T-MO.

    can i recover os without the sim card in it

    BlingBall definitely wouldn't do it. No themes?

    Yes, you can install the OS and boot the device without the SIM. That would at least answer whether you need one.
