Default 8707 help with reset

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,

Got a bunch of 8707's here and i need to reset one of them. Anyone know where the reset button on them are?

Now what happened was i backed up a 7290 profile then loaded it into a 8707 because the guy NEEDED his memo pad.

Now the things screen is screwed and i cant wipe it. Cant wipe it through Application Loader either and when i put the software back on it has a loading error.

Anyone got any ideas?

thanks guys

To completely wipe a BlackBerry, search for a download a copy of Javaloader - or look for JL_CMDR in these forums.

Use the Wipe function to wipe out the BB. Everything will go. Customer data;programs;O/S - everything.

Make sure you have the latest version of the handheld OS loaded onto your PC and then restart Desktop Manager.

Thnaks for that NJBlackBerry,

Got the App and its great. Although it didnt connect to the 8707. he blackberry Manager couldnt connect to it either.

Plugged a "working" 7290 into it and it worked fine.

hmmm the 8707 seems pretty screwed, any other ideas?

Make sure Desktop Manager is shut down.
Connect the 8707
Using Javaloader, type

javaloader -usb wipe from a DOS prompt.

Javaloader is a DOS program.
When you unzipped it, you unzipped it to a specific location.
You must find that location and execute the DOS command

javaloader -usb wipe

from the location where you unzipped Javaloader (if you don't recall, unzip it again into C:\TEMP or something well known).

Pop the battery out of the 8707. When it is restarting, try the javaloader -usb wipe again.
