So, I just had a lovely experience with the new eBay for BB app that's available through App World. Finished the App World download, the software caused a reboot and then up comes a 552 Reload Software error and my VZW Tour is now BRICKED. DM doesn't even see it, but thankfully app loader does and it looks like I might be on the path to restoring the OS...likely lost all my data, but I think I have an older backup somewhere.
Thanks alot RIM/eBay for this piece of garbage!
BTW, before anyone asks I'm not running some wacko hybrid 5.0 build or anything like that; the only thing non-standard about my BB was that I was running the RELEASED .57 from Sprint instead of VZW .40 or .61.
