Start by going to root, then "lsusb -v > lsusb.txt" and scan that for the word "Research" or maybe "RIM" to find the full entry for your device, then post that block here. For instance, the 8320 looks like this:

Bus 003 Device 003: ID 0fca:0004 Research In Motion, Ltd. 
Device Descriptor:
  bLength                18
  bDescriptorType         1
  bcdUSB               1.10
  bDeviceClass            0 (Defined at Interface level)
  bDeviceSubClass         0 
  bDeviceProtocol         0 
  bMaxPacketSize0        16
  idVendor           0x0fca Research In Motion, Ltd.
  idProduct          0x0004 
  bcdDevice            1.06
  iManufacturer           1 Research In Motion
  iProduct                5 RIM Composite Device
  iSerial                 3 XXXXPRIVATEXXXX
  bNumConfigurations      1
  Configuration Descriptor:
    bLength                 9
    bDescriptorType         2
    wTotalLength           97
    bNumInterfaces          2
    bConfigurationValue     1
    iConfiguration          0 
    bmAttributes         0x80
    MaxPower              500mA

(lots and lots more, snipped for brevity)
NOTE: this is with berry_charge active and not btool/bcharge, but you should get something that looks somewhat similar, probably a lot shorter.

What you're looking for in that block above from your 'lsusb -v' is the idProduct and idVendor stuff, that's what identifies your device as a BlackBerry to the computer (for any of the tools).
