| | bricked my 8100 through a software update. suggested standard solutions did not help

i updated my working desktop manager software by version 5.0 downloaded from blackberry website. when i connected my 8100 it suggested to also update my phonesoftware to a newer version. so i acepted and the update process started. desktop manager started to clear my device, load the new system software, rebooted (which worked) showing a no application installed icon, started to load the software modules, rebooted and never came up again. the phone just shows the red light flashing 4 times continously with the screen off.
i tried quite a long time now to get it running again using all the hints in the forums but always with the same result. the 4 red led flashing:
-> phone connection to computer works, it is possible to connect with the desktop manager or run the application updater directly
-> JL_Cmdr does not connect
-> loaded desktop manager 4.5 and phone software 4.5.0 rel 92 from the website of my mobile provider (T-Mobile Austria), reinstallation of the phone software ends up with the same 4 red leds flashing after the final reboot.
anyone further ideas, suggestions? i did not find any further hints in the forum :(
thanks a lot,
