First of all, i'm sorry if i post this on the wrong section, and i'm sorry for using text colors. i meant to make you notice easier what i did, and/or the conditions of the blackberry
I got my first blackberry today. my granpa gave it to me. it was inside a box, it was in an ON condition (showing it's home screen), without any sim card
. So, I turned it off (by holding the End Call button and put my sim card in the slot.
But when I turn it on again, I get Error 507 mostly, and sometimes 561, Reload Software
if i'm not mistaken, and it won't turn off.
i have to remove the battery in order to turn it off, but when i put it back on, it automatically turns on, goes to the BlackBerry loading screen, and displays the error message.
I've read a few articles about this error. It's because there's no OS in the phone. However, my phone was freshly bought
i've also read a few articles (some on this site) on how to fix them but since i'm new to blackberries, i couldn't understand them.
i'm eyeing on this article here
What to do next if Jl cmder will not connect
but i'm not quite sure if that's for error 507/561 since there are no text saying "error 507/561" in the article
I've also downloaded JL Cmder (v1.9.3). Tried to restore to factory defaults, didn't work. Device info shows:
Hardware Id: 0x5001807
OS Version: 0x0
VM Version: 0x6000222
VM Version Format: 0x4
Radio ID: 0x0
Vendor ID: 609
Active WAFs: 0x0
OS Metrics: (It's too long, but if I have to post this, ring me a bell. All i got are a bunch of 0x numbers)
If somebody could make a step by step guide on fixiing this problem, or how to reload my OS, i'd be really grateful! thanks in advance
