Re: blackberry rebooting again and again

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Please first try to boot into Safe Mode:

  • KB17877 How to start a BlackBerry smartphone in Safe Mode

It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully (and stably) into Safe Mode, think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.


 

If you cannot get into Safe Mode or it remains unstable in Safe Mode, then more drastic means will be required...hopefully you already have a good backup of your BB as it is quite likely that you will be unable to get a backup now that your BB is already in this condition:


If the problem continues even then, you may need to try some additional diagnostics:

 

  1. Load your OS "bare bones"...if anything is optional, do not install it.
  2. If the behavior presents immediately, then try a different OS with step 1
  3. If the behavior does not immediately present, then run for as long as it takes for you to be sure that the behavior will not present.
  4. Add one thing -- no matter how tempting, just one.
  5. If the behavior does not present immediately, then again run for long enough to be sure it will not have the same problem
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all things are loaded or the behavior presents

When the behavior presents, you know the culprit...the last thing you loaded.

If the behavior does not re-present, then you know that either step 1 or 2 cured it.

If the behavior presents no matter what, then you likely have a hardware level issue for which no amount of OS or software can cure.


Good luck and let us know!

Re: blackberry rebooting again and again

So, it is showing your actual USB PIN? And continues in it's reboot loop? As such, it is normally a matter of timing to connect at the exact moment necessary to get it to display Unknown. 20 attempts is less than I have heard it can take sometimes. You should keep trying, and trying different timings. At some point it should work. But, as you say, you must get it to that point in order to proceed...so you must keep trying.

Good luck!

Re: blackberry rebooting again and again

I've done it with Win7 many times. It can be very frustrating and very tricky to get the timing correct. I cannot say for sure one way or the other if using XP would be better or worse for your particular situation.

Maybe you will have better luck with the other KBs listed there? They do not require it to get to the "Unknown" state... Typically, I've been able to proceed whenever it gets to the PIN display state, not requiring the Unknown state. But, your experience may be different.

Good luck!

Re: blackberry rebooting again and again

It is the other 2 KBs from Post 2 above:

  • KB27956 How to recover a BlackBerry smartphone from any state
  • KB10144 How to force the detection of the BlackBerry smartphone using Application Loader

The point is not to update your OS...but to cleanly reload your OS. You may also want to investigate BBSAK.ORG...sometimes their utility has better luck.

 

Good luck!
