    I carefully followed the instructions given by Verizon and downloaded the latest OS (4.5). I ran the PC installer. At the end, it started the desktop tool. I connected my 8130 and was asked if I wanted to upgrade. I said yes. It backed up my software and data and began upgrading . The second JVM step failed and the upgrade stopped. It told me where it had saved the backup file. At this point the Pearl was dead. Nothing would resurrect it. A call to tech support didn't help either. The device will not power on even tho the radio light blinks. Connecting it to my USB port gets a notice of unknown device.
