Sorry to hear of your misfortune Ira.
You mentioned in post #3 above you found "line after line of things that failed".
I'm wondering if the two errors are somehow related. If you look at RIM's definition of the two errors, they are suspiciously similar.
102 - Invalid code in file system. The .cod files in the handheld have been checked for modification and it has been determined that there is a problem with one or more .cod files. |
507 - A dependency on a .cod file could not be satisfied due to a missing .cod file. Load the missing .cod file onto the handheld.
Just guessing - Possibly a device filesystem corruption is occuring? Maybe some sort of bug in the OS you are currently using. Have you thought of possibly loading a newer OS?
