Default BB Wont Open....HELP

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. I deleted LiveProfile off my 8520 BB. I was asked if I wanted to restart my phone to complete the process. I clicked yes and the phone shut down. The phone began to restart but the loading bar only loads a little over half way and stops. Tried turning it on and off the normal way with no joy, only way the phone will turn off is by taking out the battery. Have tried loads of times to restart, still the same

unless your battery is defective you might have corrupted the OS. it will have to be reloaded. Go to the FAQ section at the top of the forum and there you will find instructions. DO NOT use any OS ezxcept one designed for your model.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks button

About the loading bar stopping at the halfway point, one does need to wait a good while before concluding that the device isn't going to boot. I've seen a device pause at about 2/3 of the way for something like 10 or 15 minutes. I would give it 30 minutes to be sure.

I had to wait almost 20 minutes for my reboot after deleting LN. Finally had to do a battery pull.

Thanks for your help. BB finally rebooted and is now working fine. Took a couple of hours to do so.
