Re: curve 8520 app error 523 reset

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

Here is a KB that discusses that error. Hopefully it contains something useful for you.

 

Typically, the "fix" is to reload your OS from scratch. Here is a post that describes quite well how to do that:

 

Good luck!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Well, since a solution is posted just above your post, I find myself wondering what did not work for that for you in that post.

 

Good luck!

Re: curve 8520 app error 523 reset

Both actually apply to both. The KB and the OS reload both apply to any model BB.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

I can't quite interpret what the highlighted words were intended to communicate, but with that error, it is entirely possible that the data on your BB is already gone, rendering a backup procedure moot anyway. But, maybe you can get it to start up adequately by trying Safe Mode:

  • KB17877 How to start a BlackBerry smartphone in safe mode

If it won't start up to anything but the 523, then an OS reload is all you can proceed to. Hopefully you already have a recent enough backup from which to restore.

 

Good luck!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Well, are you successful at booting up in safe mode?

 

Thanks.
