Hi chloekate9900

 

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

 

No you can't wipe our device while it is off , We should always avoid Over the Air device software update ,however you can use BlackBerry Desktop Software to do the same purpose.

 

Try to start your device on Safe Mode   KB17877  How to start a BlackBerry smartphone in Safe Mode , then  Connect your device and open BlackBerry Desktop Software and try the update.

 

If that fails then you had to use application loader to load the OS back into your device.

 

KB10144 How to force the detection of the BlackBerry smartphone using Application Loader.

 

But remember Using Application loader will delete all the data within your device.
