    I tried googling for a solution to this problem but I couldn't find one.

    I just got an 8310 today that I bought on ebay. I downloaded the desktop manager and proceeded to updated it. Everything ran smoothly until the end of Task in Progress 8 of 10, where it's supposed to be "Loading applications". The progress bar got to the very end, but it has been stuck there for a while. The phone just shows the hourglass that I guess appears when the phone is starting up, but it has been stuck like that for over 20 minutes.

    What should I do? Should I hit cancel and try again? Will that make me lose all my contacts, or even worse, leave the phone without the necessary files to start up again?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    edit: Now it went from having the hourglass to just having a blank screen

    Can take awhile for the o/s to load; should wait to see if it loads correctly first imo

    Ok, how long it too long? It's been like this for over half an hour now

    Also, this is an unlocked phone. I'm obviously a newbie, so this might be a dumb question, but there's no way the phone can be bricked if I update it when it's unlocked.. right?

    Leave it be until it does it's thing. If you unhook it, it's on to How to Recover a Nuked BB.
