Still not working! I really wanted to play around with this!
Continuously stating "not working" really does nothing at all to help those who are trying to help you. Nothing.
If you could state where the error is, what part worked or didn't work, you followed "this" advice, deleted "that", something additional.. otherwise, it's a guessing game.

Hey JSanders, et al
Here is my experience so far:
Had my Dev Alpha connected to DTM when I got home and started it. It said there was an update so I tried to install. It download a number of modules (at least 54 of 57 but not sure that it got to 57), didn't re-boot wasn't succesful.
Went looking for help, found the first procedure. Followed those instructions. That didn't work. Kept looking, found the updated set of instructions. That got it started. Progressed quickly through connecting to boot loader, uploading new memory image and then "Downloaded modules 0 of 2" untill the progress bar is at about 25%. It has been frozen there for about 30 min. So I'm just letting it sit there but would welcome any help as to how long this should take, and what to do if it doesn't move on after whatever is a reasonable time.

I installed without issue using the MSI.
After which, I entered the wrong BBID, so I did a secuirty wipe.
now all i see is this.
Nothing else works.

I have same problem.
After reset password in BB working only browser, any other functions is not work (calling, camera, settings). If press on icon - not any reactions.
If connect device to computer, system install some drivers, but device not recognize by AppLoader (in "PIN" dialog).
In first step, i try update on Win7 x64 w. installed DM, in last step i install updater on clean Win XP w.o. DM - no changes.

if BB is booting, sometimes (1-2 sec.) you can see selection in "PIN" dialog - immediately press the OK. Device continue booting and AppLoader waiting. After boot, restart device again, and when second boot stage AppLoader start normal process.

So it looks like Windows is "installing" the BB DEV alpha as a RIM PlayBook CD USB Drive, a USB Mass Store Drive and something called "OXQ 2V0X6R41 SCSI CdRom Device."
I try uninstalling these by going into device manager, but as soon as I plug it back in, WIndows installs it again.
If I uninstall the USB Drivers, then Uninstall the AppLoaderWebSL_22.214.171.124.msi, then reinstall, the system trys to install as a "BlackBerry Smartphone" (probably wont step closer), then fails and installs as the CdRom Device again.
I'm going to try uninstalling the USB drivers, the AppLoaderWebSL_126.96.36.199.msi software, rebooting, reinstalling AppLoaderWebSL_188.8.131.52.msi and then plugging the phone in.
I'll let ya know how it goes in a minute or 5.

Looks like no success.
Might have something to do with the phone.
After trying the above, this is what I get.
I'm going to try it on another computer that I haven't installed any of this on - if it works - then its the computer - if it doesn't, then its the device, and its kinda boned at that point until RIM comments.

Apparently there is some problem with short passwords. My password was 'p' and my dev alpha wouldnt unlock after successful update, so i had to wipe the device. At least one more person on crackberry forums had to wipe because of the same reason, his password was three characters long.
