as of right now im sort of stuck with a paperweight until a solution is found.
an o/s installs i try on the 507 error screen just result in
the DM saying the software is not designed for the device currently connected.
does anyone know if there is anyway to force an install? i was thinking that would be the next best alternative. because the only o/s the DM is actually trying to install is 4.6 from my other javelin.
You're basically SOL. Can you load a OS to the pre-production model? Yes, but it has to be a particular build. It's going to have to be one of the early betas, I'm assuming probably somewhere around .46. But .46 is buggy as crap and not even worth loading. So basically you have a paperweight unless you know someone who works at RIM who will stick their neck out for you.
