Default Reinstalling OS

Please Login to Remove!

I have a problem. The default media player and web browser have vanished, gone. Sometimes I can get the browser to open when I use opera mini to download jar files, but it closes and says something about service book. So I want to reinstall the Pearl OS.

I have already wiped it in the security options, and I cannot get JL cmder to work because it says you are about to install, and then it loads up a cmd and closes. Where does it extract the files?

What else do I need? I downloaded from blackberrys site but I don't think it updated when I loaded the application syncer.

Edit: Ok I have gotten JL cmder to work, I just took the battery out right now...Ok now I did it, and I get a box with a circle, square and triangle and then under it it says 507, I think I bricked it?

Well you jumped a bit quickly. Service Books don't load with the OS, they are pushed by the service provider.

The Media Player was probably just hidden or placed in an odd folder somewhere.

Follow these instructions to upgrade your OS , and you should be fine...
