Angry WTF, my bold wont update!!!

Please Login to Remove!

im trying to download the latest version of the OS and the damn thing wont do it. i downloaded and installed the file, deleted vendor, and ran loader. it backs up the data, but once it gets to "Connect to the device ROM" it loses connection and stops!! and it takes me forever to even get the damn thing connected in the first place to even start the backup. it like doesnt even recognize theres something plugged into my USB drive on my computer. sometimes it wont even charge, other times it charges but wont do the backup. but everytime ive managed to get it to do the backup it stops at this same point. ive tried wiggling all connections with no help. and on multiple occasions once i finally got it to start backing up, i left the device and my computer COMPLETELY still... and it still fails at connecting to the device ROM. WTF is going on here? im so f*ckin mad right now!!

Sounds like you have a defective USB connector on your BlackBerry.

Have you tried jl_cmder?

Is the device plugged into a USB extension or USB hub?

jl_cmder is a utility that allows you to connect to, wipe and reinstall the OS on your device when the DM is acting up. Check it out at the link and see if it will help you out.

"NOTE: Do NOT use JL_Cmder to wipe your device if your device is working fine and are simply attempting to upgrade your OS and you can't get the OS to load. Doing so will most likely render your device useless until you find the root cause of why the OS will not load to the device. Generally, this is caused by not deleting the vendor.xml file(s)"

yeeeah, i dont think im gonna do that...

I agree with Fat Ryan. I wouldn't use JL_Cmder for this.

Could you try another PC if at all possible, maybe a friend's or relative's?
