I bought a Blackberry Torch 9800 from kijiji today. He discounted it because it had the error listed in the subject. I figured, hey, I can wipe the phone with JLcmd and reload the OS bada bing bada boom, Profit.
Nope. Not that easy in this case Please help!!!
Carrier: seems unbranded, maybe developers model. (see pics)
Model info and OS version:None
What I have tried: (with battery in, and without,with internet connected/without)
-Wiping with JlCmd (wont recognize BB)
-Updating with BB desktop software (issuet connecting)
-Bypassing BB desktop soft. and using apploader (will show USBin, but when contacting ARM, BB keeps restarting)
-Using BBSAK (wont even recognize device at all)
-Radio Lab wont recog. either
last pic shows pin engraved on the BB. May be developers model or something?

On your computer, Click Start>Run and copy/paste the following exactly (with the quotation marks)
"c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader\loader.exe" /nojvm
The Application Loader will pop up so click Next.
Your Pin should display as Unknown, thats normal.
You should see all the apps thats are going to get installed, So click "Next" and "Finish"
Whatever you do, dont unplug it!!! It pay take a while, but let it do its thing
Oh and if you dont have a list of apps, chances are there is no device OS on the computer, and you would then need to download and install it.
Also you may want to delete 'vendor.xml' from 'C:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader' prior to starting.
But lemme know!

ive tried with with cmd and start/run. Jvm and no jvm lol
And the PIN doesnt show up as unknown, it shows up as the actual PIN
Anything as far as things like that, wont work. Ive tried every variety of those types of simple instructions and the phone just restarts as soon as you to to do anything withit.
I ran an olympia .elf BAT file for the 9780 and it didnt restart the phone but it said i needed to update to a newer version. Obviously the 9800 lol.
SO if anyone has this please let me know

hey this was a while ago but I found out my phone was a developers model (before the torch 9800s actually came out) and therefore could no have any stable OS loaded on it. Unless you get ahold of the original developers ios, your out of luck
