Default Dead curve, red lights blinking, please help!?

Please Login to Remove!

So, I was updating my curve to the newest OS today and right in the middle of install my phone shut off and the red light started blinking over and over and I couldnt reboot.

After reading many posts about how to fix dead blackberrys, I've found that most state that I have to loader apploader but I keep getting the image below instead of showing a list of my apps and updating my phone.

I've tried wiping my phone with JL_Cmder and, even after about 20 tries, it will not connect and wipe the phone. I've also tried taking out the battery and sim, leaving the battery in, booting without the sim and/ battery to no avail.

My computer finds and installs the USB drivers ok when I plugged the phone into my laptop, still nothing. Ive tried going back to an older OS but it wont connect for me to do so.

Download BlackBerrySwissArmyKnife (bbsak). It will connect to your BB even if nothing else will. You can use that to wipe your OS and load a new OS. Are you tring to install your carrier's OS or another carrier's OS?

Hmmm. I'm curious on what the problem was and how it got fixed. Divine intervention, or?
