Please Login to Remove!

In my previous post I stated i had problems with my boyfriends bb. That has been solved and his phone is working perfectly fine... mine on the other hand.

We have the same model.. 8520 but mine is white. I did exactly the same upgrade to 5.0 os but now my signal bar is never high if i get any and mostly going on s.o.s. i have excellent signal coverage in my area and never had a problem before the upgrade??

-back up the device using DTM
-do a back door reload on the device.
-after reload test signal
-then restore selective data on the device. only necessary files would be best. *almost seems like it could of been a corruption in the database when the update was done.*

Please explain what a back door reload is?

How does a new user restore selective data?

Thank you.

Backdoor Reload:
A backdoor reload can be useful when DTM is having a hard time connecting to the device.
DTM 6.0 automatically backs up the device and restore on the update.
how to do a backdoor reload:
1-Download your Handheld(HH) Software from your Wireless provider or blackberry.com for your Specific device.
2-Install the HH Software onto your computer.
3- after installed navigate to
32bit Windows based computers
c:/program files/common files/research in motion/apploader/loader.exe
64bit Windows based computers
c:/program files (x86)/common files/research in motion/apploader/loader.exe
4-it will load up the the application loader wizard screen
click next.
you will now see the device PIN in the next screen
click next.
next is the application screen select.
click next.
on this screen select do not automatically back up the device
click next
then finish.
this will reload the blackberry without doing a automatic backup and restore.
once complete it will appear as if the blackberry loading has "Hung up" dont be alarmed it will complete just be patient

after all steps are completed then the selective restore process should be done
in DTM 6.0
1-go to Device --> restore
2-Select your newest backup
3-then select the radio button that says select data.
4- check off the databases that you necessarily need
5- click restore
Voila!

in DTM 4.7-5.0
1-click Backup/restore
2-click advanced
3-Over the left window click file --> open
4-Find your newest back up then click open
5-After the left window loads select the database you want to restore
6-Click the button that has *>>*
7-Select Yes to accept the restore
8- Repeat steps 5-7 as needed
Voila!

let me know if anything is in the gray area when completing these steps
