I am new to this forum so first I'd like to say 'Hello everybody, here I am'.
Now my problem: I accidentally dropped my BB 8100 Pearl. Afterwards, it gave me flashing codes, sometimes it would start the OS properly but then give me the flashing code again - the code is: flash-flash-flash-pause-flash-flash.
I understand the code means something like the BB cannot get beyond the bootloader and access the OS. I once managed to connect the BB to my computer and tried to upload the OS again. I had the OS erased properly but then the connection got disrupted (dunno why) and now I only get flashing codes. I _sometimes_ get the LED to light up a few seconds but I still cannot connect to my computer to upload software to the BB. When the LED goes out again, I get a different code: flash-flash-pause-flash-flash-flash.
Does that mean my BB is physically damaged? Can I do anything about it? I am pretty good at soldering (fine-pitch and BGAs included) and have access to the proper tools required.
Is there a way I can recover the data stored on the BB? I have some pictures that I'd really like to save...[/edit]
Thanks for any help!!!
