It doesn't matter where you are, you can still load the OS I posted using the instructions I outlined. Good luck!

i'll try that tomorrow. it's too late today.. the wiping and reinstalling and restore can take like an hour or so already..
i'll post back how it goes.
i'm not too confident about the result tho..
btw.. i'm using mac.. no windows.. where can i find the vendor.xml file?

Well, that's a problem, then. You won't be able to do this procedure on a Mac, unless you have a Windows partition.

Okay, I stand corrected. This article should help you along.

But what if BBSAK wont read the BB? i;m trying this all over again, and the BBSAK keeps saying no device connected. Seriously this is so upsetting!! Is these any other way around this problem?

Plus, I am trying to get the BB to work on safe mode by pressing the exit button when rebooting but this wont work either; I mean the reboot goes on as usual with no safe mode dialogues box appearing! and then the 606 code comes up again.
I really dont now what to do... anyone with any ideas please help me!
Best regards to all,

There's nothing like BBSAK for a Mac, unfortunately. Do you have a friend who has a PC you can use?
I've searched all over the web and can't seem to find a definitive answer for Mac users.
::edit:: Sorry George.....getting posters mixed up here. You're not the Mac user.
Anyway, when trying to boot in safe mode, how long do you hold the ESC key down while it's booting?
Also, you can't get BBSAK to recognize the device? Try removing the battery from the device, connecting it to the PC, launch BBSAK, then replace the battery and see what happens.
