    I have acquired a Blackberry Curve 8530 in the past few weeks, at first it wasn't working due to some error i managed to fix quickly but then i went to have it updated with the lastest version of blackberry desktop manager v7.1, problem is it nuked the blackberry, then I read about how to unnuke your blackberry, i tried apploader in version 7.1 but would not work since it would recognize the USB.PIN with the numbers (is it because i didnt delete the vendor.xml files?!) i dont know.

    Therefore i decided to look up for a previous version of desktop manager, i stumbled accross a Desktop manager V4.6. Then I went to download the latest version 5.0.0 of blackberry OS for curve 8530 and installed it and rebooted computer as it asked me to do so. Here is what i do and it bugs me exactly always at the same area :

    First I remove the battery and I use JL_Cmder to make sure the blackberry is completely wiped. Then i go into c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader\ and i open the loader.exe file there (the vendor.xml files are deleted). After that i press next and it shows me the windows with the port i need to connect (though it does not show me Com1 as in the picture but shows insteed a blank rectangle). As i connect the Blackberry it does show me USB.PIN : Unknown so i click next. I pop the battery back in at this point and put the cover on as suggested, it then asks me what i want to install on it so i click all the apps i want. On the next window it starts to erase all the files and loading the components necessary (as being the first of 4 actions). On the second Action which is to boot the Blackberry is where i get my problem, it does not recognize the Blackberry being plugged as i hear the constant dinging sound until it simply tells me it failed to recognize the berry being plugged in. I am using a Windows XP SP3 32bit computer to do this.

    My questions about this is it failing to find the berry because i previously installed a version 7.1 then removed it without wiping clean the register files? is it failing because the OS V5.0.0 is not compatible with a Desktop manager v4.6? Should i be using another computer to do it clean with no previous installation done on it? also if the OS V5.0.0 is not compatible with Desktop Manager v4.6 where can i get a previous version of the OS for a kodoo phone? (looked in the OS superpage + blackberry page the only version i was able to find was this one) and finally what the heck am I doing wrong?

    You need to display your issue in a more concise and compact matter. No one wants to read that much and quite frankly its confusing and hard to read

    you might find it confusing but if theres something im not doing right someone will find it as i gave the most information possible, if you want more concise i can simply put it this way : V4.6 of desktop manager on 32bit windows xp does not work and fails at booting sequence of cell phone device, previous installation of 7.1 on same computer, i did all it says to do in the nuked berry section, anyone can help me?
