Default HELP - any way to save me?

Please Login to Remove!

There were two links on this thread here, one for the newest OS version, and one for those running previous versions. I was still on a previous version. (either 4.01 or 4.10, I forget)

Now my phone is screwed, and I can't even seem to connect to it through the Desktop Manager. It's making the USB disconnected/connected sound effect every 20-30 seconds, and the red light of death is occasionally blinking.

I get a white screen with an hourglass for a few seconds, then it fades to black and the disconnect/connect sound effect plays.

Help!! I really needed this for work tomorrow and I'm kinda screwed without it.



Is there any way I can remove any apps without reformatting? Is there any way I can keep my autotext / sms messages / emails / etc, but remove all 3rd party programs that are installed?

If I go to the add/remove in Desktop Manager, it displays PIN: UNKNOWN, makes the sound effect, and then displays the correct PIN. then it resets again, and makes the sound effects again. HELP!

Just for the heck of it you should try a different USB cable.

dab, we've answered your question in PM, and in the other thread. There is not a way to do what you are trying to do, and I am sorry that there is nothing else we are aware of which you can do.

Good luck.

Mate, if the OS is screwy try to go straight into the Apploader.exe

if it cant get it there pull the plug on it and put it back in a few times (will be frustrating) and try to catch the OS before it dies... in apploader the second the pin shows up hit next..

once apploader can grab the device you should be able to undo the dmg.. good luck
