Ok were fiddling with a blackberry curve 8320 T-mobile. The software is the latest 4.5.0.81 downloaded this morning from T-mobileís website. And Iím on an HP with Vista.

I woke up this morning to a red light flashing on my phone thatís it no other activity . I un plugged it from the charger and took out the battery, waited and replaced no change in the status. I tried the spare battery and it still flashed the same roughly six seconds off to four seconds on repeating the pattern. I tried installing the software hereís the prob I got it to connect to the apploader it sead ďconnecting to device (arm)Öď in the bottom corner. I got to the device application selection. After I selected the programs to install it starts the process.

First it loads jvm and system software.

Erasing applications
Loading system software
Check mark appears on first line
Wait for device initialization ,immediately the red light comes on on my phone flashing same as before
After about 60 sec or so of trying the message on the apploader reads ď unable to reconnect to device during a multi-stage load operation.Ē red light flashing the whole time its trying.

Iíve tried doing all this without battery in with battery in taping the usb wire as read in an earlier post. The only change after the multitude of attempts is the light flashes six on six off now and no light after connected to computer successfully untill the ďWait for device initialization ď task Iím out of ideas and donít want to admit defeat and go to t-mobile. Iíve also tried with and without the vendor file in the apploader. Tell me Iím an idiot and for got a simple step or something Iíd rather that than give up and go to t-mobile. Also whatís the red light suppose to be doing during the software loading, on, off, flashing ect. any ideas??

The error "unable to reconnect to device during a multi-stage load operation," is common when not connected DIRECT to a rear USB port on the PC. NOT a front USB port, nor a USB hub or monitor port.

Try what JSanders^^ said first!!!

If that fails then see my post.



Here:

How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

Then here if that fails:

What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ

Be patient it may take numreous times to catch it just right in the boot cycle. Then proceed to load OS again.

Good Luck!

Maybe I misunderstanding your statement. But, how would suing BB fix the messy situation caused by Vista?

Thank you JSanders for your posts.
Your hint of connecting directly to the back USB port did the trick.

Wow, another wonderful solution provided by JSanders! Can I ask you two questions, sir?

1) Why the heck would it matter to be connected to the back USB connection instead of a front USB connection?

2) How the HECK did you figure this out? haha

1. Using a rear USB port when having connection issues is pretty well documented around this Forum...it is not required at all times--BUT if you run into issues, it is one of the first troubleshooting tips to try.

Why it matters is that the rear USB ports are connected to the main motherboard of the PC, which are powered/controlled by the drivers installed by the BB device drivers.

2. Personal experiencve: About four years ago on the 7100, I had connection issues with a backup to the PC. Connected to a RIM tech via Tmobile, they suggested moving the cable to a rear main USB port. It solved my issue.

Yeah I actually "bricked" my Berry a while back. Did I panic? Oh hell yes!!! After running around the house for a few minutes going " oh god what did I do, oh god what did I do!" I got on my PC and logged in. After reading the How's sections I was able to get an OS loaded on my Berry and was once again a happy addict!!!!
