    Could you give us a little more on what you have already done and which method?

    There are a few methods for wiping the device - JL_Cdmer, BBSak etc - so it would be most helpful to know which of these you did so we dont attempt to walk you through everything you have already done.

    Ok, I would personally download either BBSak or JL_Cdmer and use this to completely wipe the OS from the device. Personally I like BBSak more. This is a rather basic how to on this which would allow you to do what you are looking to do. http://crackberry.com/installing-lea...ssage-received

    still no luck the link you gave said that the bbsak was no longer in date and would not let me do anything with it. i also tried the jl_com program did the wipe but not sure that it did anything. the phone is hooked to the computer nothing but an hour glass

    You will know that JL_Cdmer has worked when your device boots to a 507 error on the screen, do you have that?

    I would unplug from the computer and pull the battery, see if the device boots, or goes to the white screen with an error with the number 507 on it.

    Pull the battery from the device and then place it in. After that, what happens?

    Ok, does the LED blink at all?

    Try plugging it into power, either via USB to computer or the wall.

    If I understand correctly, you were getting this error message:

    Yes, the basic problem is the failure to reconnect.

    The first thing to do is check out your USB ports. Remove all USB connected devices and hubs. Make the connection directly to the computer.

    Run Applications Loader again, it should connect to your Storm and install the software. Wiping is not required, but it does not do any harm as long as you have a current backup of your data and third party applications.

    This might be a dead or drained battery causing havok.

    Try this before you continue troubleshooting:
    Remove battery
    Plug BB into wall outlet (LED should light up red/yellow)
    Replace battery
    Let it sit for an hour.

    This should fully recharge the BB enough for you to continue your "denuking"
