didnt quite work for me, but i DID fix it. Heres how:
- Removed battery
- Plugged BB into comp without battery
- Opened Desktop Manager
- Opened Application Loader
- Clicked Add Software
- It then asks you to select a device - There are NONE listed (Keep this OPEN)
- I then plugged in the battery, while still connected
- It quickly shows a device in the list, as USB: UNKNOWN
- IMMEDIATELY after seeing that, click OK.
- Then it works, dunno how or why, but it did. I'm now running OS 188.8.131.52 on my 8330 Verizon and loving it.
Thanks to all who helped.
