Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get my Pearl up and running again? Thanks in advance.
Remove the battery from your Pearl and then plug it into the PC with the USB cable. The desktop manager will not show connected, but if you double click on the Application Loader you can begin the process. Just continue on like the device is connected. I did this today after I wiped my device using JL_Cmder.
About halfway through the software reload process, put the battery back in and the back cover back on. Just make sure to not disconnect the USB cable from the device.
