4. still in DM I once again clicked update and the process began again but this time the phone restarted with black screen and the LED pulsing twice with a pause and then repeating

i've tried to do the install like whats in the nuked 101 tutorial but the thing is the phone is not being recognized by the computer.

sometimes i get the computer to recognize the phone but the the update process hangs because i think the phone start 'tripping' again

please help cause its a friends phone and he has some important information that needs to be restored and we dont have a second bb to transfer the info in the mean time

hmm lets see so i take it your phone is BRICKED as most in the phone world will say , in all honesty it is really hard to brick a blackberry . try doing this i remember i tried it on my storm 9520 take battery out and hold finger on power button while connecting it and keep holding it till you hear the computer make a sound like you just plugged something in . then real quick install the battery then run recovery or upgrade . see if this works it worked for me
