I have a Blackberry 7100t for T-Mobile. No matter what I do when I power the device, it will give me a perpetual hour-glass, and never boots up. Some suggested that I use the JL_Cmder utility to wipe the OS:
C:\Program Files\JL_Cmder>javaloader -u wipe

Connecting to device...
However, this utility can connect to the device. After a half an hour, I got a timeout message stating that utility can not connect to the port. Below are options I tried:
1) Removed the sim card, and plugged the USB cable to the device that is connected to the computer.
2) I tried #1 and also removed the battery
3) I removed the sim card, battery, and the USB tether from the device for a couple days in hopes that the device would lose it settings info and reset itself being that it had no power. That didn't work.
Is there anything else that I should try to revive this device?
