Success in installing Blackberry OS

I've problem with my new Blackberry Curve 8520, and the solution is to reinstall the OS. So, I went to hand phone repair shop just to ask the price for reinstalling the OS. Surprisingly, the cost is around RM70 - RM150. Emmmm... better do-it myself i figured.

So if any of you guys need to reformat/reinstall/reload (or whatever you call it) OS on your BB, you might follow these steps. It was so easy and just take about 10-30 minutes of your time. And you must use a Windows Computer.

You must have Blackberry Desktop Software and the Blackberry OS on your computer. If you don't have it, download it. Don't forget to install the software (just double-click and click next-next-next... bla bla bla...).

DO NOT connect your BB to the computer yet and TAKE OFF the battery as well. Open your file browser and go here:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader

Click on the Loader. The app loader wizard will come up. Click next. Once you on this page, connect the BB to your computer immediately (No battery yet).

Once it get connected, and the connection change from COM1 to USB-PIN:UNKNOWN, immediately click Next >. This will stop your blackberry from the constant reboot/restart phase and allows you to reload the Operating System.

Now put the battery back in and battery cover back on (Make Sure you install the battery or else when the OS update is completing and the device disconnects from the computer to reboot, it will lose the power provided by the USB connection and you will get an error and have to do it all over again!).

If it's done correctly, you are on your way to having your BlackBerry up and running again. Choose the options you want to install on your BlackBerry (BrickBreaker, BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry Maps, etc.), click Next>, then approve the installation by clicking "Finish." Sit back and relax while the BlackBerry does its thing.

Senang bukan :D...
