It's not a happy BB. You will need to wipe and reload the OS.

Start here:

How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

If that fails here:

What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ

And then here:

How do I upgrade the OS on my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

Be patient and follow the instructions EXACTLY.

Good Luck!

When the continuous boot looping is the issue, use this:

What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ

as JL_Cmder won't connect.

I'm having trouble even connecting the phone to the computer. I plugged it into USB and i get "USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED - one of the usb devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it" So far its not sounding good is it. Is there still hope?

Ok i got a brilliant idea that I sure will work to fix my phone if you guys can help guide me in the right direction. I have a friend who has the same phone as me, if i took his phone and connected it to the computer with desktop manager and made a backup. would i be able to somehow flash his backup onto my device? has anyone ever heard of basically cloning a device and if it is at all possible, please let me know specifically about that, tnx.

I have not used it but Desktop Manager has a SWITCH DEVICE option which I gather does what you want. Although, I don't know that it can also "clone" the OS back to normal.

What issue you had initially with your device? No OS?

hey guys. It appears I am having the same problem.

The phone just blinks red. When I connect it to the computer, windows says it recognized the BB, but DM can't find it, nor JMR.

When I connect it, the LED goes to solid red for 4-5 seconds, then disconnects from the computer. I am at a loss of what to do. Any advice?

Another thing is... When I go into command prompt, it says the directory is not found, or is invalid. So I don't know where to begin here.

Have you tried using a different USB cable? Just a thought...
