Question How do I flash my BB ROM?

Please Login to Remove!

This is probably a very noobish Q, but... I looked at the latest rom versions and mine is back at 4.0.XX and the latest one for nextel is 4.1.XX

I went to the nextel site and searched and couldn't find it. I went to the BB site and searched and couldn't find it...

Can somone at least tell me which site it's on? I feel a little dumb asking this but...

This link tells the latest OS for most of the devices. There is also a link to a FAQ where you can download the OS's.

Based on your previous posts, you have a 7510. The latest version available for the 7510 is 4.0.2.54. You can not install version 4.1.x.x.

Sorry.

There are instructions on the download site. Read them before you start. Good luck!

I'm screwed...

I tried to flash it and there was an error restoring data... now I have a monochrome screen, with text-only options (which are "options", "phone", "messages", and "settings") and when it goes into locked mode, I nolonger have a "NEXTEL" banner or logo. It doesn't even display signal strength or battery... When I press alt-escape, all that's running is "Phone", "messages", and "java console".

The worst part, though... I cant get it to connect to the desktop manager to restore! the device manager recognizes it, but BB desktop wont log in! I tried running the installer again, but it goes through it's paces and says it's successfully installed, and quits, no change to my BB!

HELP!!!

EDIT:
I've tried everything, and I Cant connect to my BB. It will still place and recieve calls, but it's silent... so the device is worthless now... I may try calling Nextel tomorrow (I've alrady gone to their store and they're clueless about BBs) but since i'm the second owner I doubt they'll be able to do anything...

I'm watching another BB, the 7520, on eBay... trying to decide wheather to buy it or just look for a iden->axim datacable and thumbpad for my PDA and forget about BBs... my experiance has been a very mixed one and I'm teetering back and forth, trying to decide which rout to take, since my 7510 seems to have become an emergancy-only-phone-slash-paperweight now...

Give this a try. Wipe the handheld with JL_CMDER in my sig below. Be sure Desktop Manager is not running when you wipe it. When it's done you should get a 507 error on the device. Close JL_Cmder and and run Desktop manager, select USB (it may not show the PIN, that's ok) from the connection menu and then run Application Loader again.

Edit: Actually, before trying the above, with the device the way it is, can you go to settings and choose a theme? It almost sounds like there is no theme installed. I've had this happen before, just not on the 7510.

So, you ended up wiping with JL_Cmder and reloading?

The problem in this case usually was that a theme was loaded and when the OS was updated, the theme was not retained, so it reverted back to the fail safe theme which was black and white.
