Default Restoring OS to BB Curve 8530

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everybody,

I sort of noobed up on this one. I was having big problems with my OS on my curve and I tried to restore it using the DM and that didnt help. So I used JL_CMDER to wipe it and hoping that a new OS would help me.

I used JL_CMDER successfully and now when I plug my phone into my laptop the phone will display "Reload software 507" (as I had expected). But when I open up the DM it says:

A connection to the device could not be established. Please ensure that the device is properly connected to the cradle or USB cable, and that the cradle or USB cable is connected securely to your computer. Also ensure that the device has completed any startup operations. Then run the Application Loader Wizard again.
I am out of ideas and would appreciate any help before I gotta take the sucker into my provider for help.

Thanks in advance

What OS are you trying to install? Are you following our instructions and did you delete the vendor.xml file?

Have you tried BBSAK?

Thanks for the response. I got the OS (OS 5) to load successfully. I restored my contacts from my old phone and everything works fine except for one things. When I go into the Games and Applications folder there are somethings missing.

In Games: All of the games are missing, and when I reinstalled one I had previously and moved it into the games folder it disappeared.

Applications: All I have in there is Calc, Files, Voice Dialing and Saved Messages. I know from before there were things such as Memos and Tasks and a few others that I can not fully remember.

Is there any way to restore the above files?
