Updating blackberry 8310 software
The GOOD NEWS is that this problem likely won't affect you unless you're out and about looking for trouble and you can always fix a Nuked Berry (at least from my experience! You just need to know a couple of little tricks and have 45 minutes of free time…
The fundamental problem with the Nuked Berry scenario is that because the device is stuck in a permanent reboot sequence or loop, when you attach it your computer via USB cable it simply connects and disconnects over and over and over again (you’ll just keep hearing that USB detected/unplugged noise) as the Black Berry turns on/off.
Step #2: We need to connect the Black Berry to the Computer via USB cable.
But here's where the tricky part comes in with the Nuked Black Berry. What we want to do is plug in the Black Berry, and when COM1 switches to say USB-PIN: UNKNOWN we immediately click Next.
Dated: 6/18/2009 Software Version: 2.25.0047 OS Supported: Windows 2000, XP (32 bit), and Vista (32 and 64 bit) PLEASE NOTE: This software is not compatible with NMEA Ports for Windows Vista 64-bit users.
With pulling your Black Berry’s battery doing nothing to solve the problem and it being impossible to establish a link to your desktop, at this point if you called your carrier for support there’s a chance they’ll tell you your Black Berry is broken and that it’s time for a new one. Before reloading the operating system on a Nuked Black Berry, you need to make sure you have taken care of some basics: You can download the latest version of Black Berry Desktop Manager from the Black website, and you can find the latest Operating System available for your device from our Black Berry OS superpage.
There was an OSv4.3.1 Beta for the Curve I got my hands on way back when.
Well, it turns out it had a slight glitch that made it want to occasionally reboot the phone when I answered incoming calls (which I was living with ok), but after Nuking my Berry while testing some software a friend of mine was working on, I decided to take the opportunity to revert back to the very stable OSv4.2.2.
I’ve been a bit slack in my Black Berry 101 lectures as of late – I blame the Smartphone Round Robin, all the Contests we’ve been running on the site and the busy Holiday Season. Today’s lecture isn’t really a “newbie” topic, but it’s one that I wanted to cover because in the past three weeks I’ve gone through it half a dozen times and that is Reloading the Operating System on a Black Berry that’s totally “Nuked”.
but we’ll be back in 2008 bigger and better than ever.The following process doesn't just work for Nuked Black Berrys.You can also use it to clean the slate/reload/update the OS on a Black Berry that's in fine working order.I’m not sure if nuked is the technically appropriate word for it (I also use one that starts with an F and ends in an ED and has a CK in the middle), but it is how I refer to a Black Berry that is stuck in a permanent reboot cycle and is completely, completely unusable.
