| | 7750 won't boot "Data abor..." after upgrade
Please Login to Remove!
I've got a 7750 Blackberry on Aliant (Bell Mobility) which I've tried upgrading to the 4.0 OS. The upgrade actually went fairly smoothly, aside from the odd twenty-minute boot time afterward.
After that, I tried loading some useful software onto the device, like the MidpSSH client. Didn't work. I also noticed that the device had become very sluggish, but I've seen other comments saying that's fairly common on the 7750s with 4.0.
But! After one hard reset, trying to recover the network after it fell off, the Blackberry won't boot anymore. It comes up, I get the rotating hourglass, then after about a minute I get "Data abor..." (no 't'!) with a "Reset" option selected. If I hit select, the device reboots... and comes back up in the same state.
I can't access the Blackberry via the Desktop Manager over USB, it never connects.
Is there a forceable clear-reset-restore or some trick that I can use to repair this thing?
