Your post is confusing.
You say the device is bricked... then you ask for help.
What are we supposed to help with?

If it's bricked, then it's gone forever. Useless. Can't be fixed. Destroyed. As useful as a brick.

If it can be fixed (which yours likely can) then it isn't bricked.

Sorry... pet peeve of mine.

Improper (overuse) of the word "bricked" is everywhere.

THanks for your help and sorry for the wrong choice of words. I am very new to this, and that was my acutal first Post

Most importantly - is your BB back up and running?
