Re: jvm 513 error

You will need two different pieces of software you will need the Desktop Manager software, and the OS for that device, in your case the 8100. 


Once you have those downloaded install them and then open the Desktop Manager and select application loader. This will reload the OS onto your device.


Here is a link to the OS just select your carrier, but any carrier will work.



If you select a carrier that is not yours just delete the vendor.xml file located here C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader before opening Desktop Manager 


The Desktop Manager software can be located here for download.




Let me know if you have any questions.
