Re: Do not wipe Dev Alpha Update 10.0.9 Bundle 44

Hi there,

I'v done that like 4 hours ago, and it keeps showing a window with a message "uploading RAM image".

Is it right to take that long?

Should I restart all over again?

Thanks in advance.

What does the 1 red light, then 6 red lights mean?

 

Also it does not start, only a black flat screen

 

How do I unbrick it?

 

Thanks

Re: Do not wipe Dev Alpha Update 10.0.9 Bundle 44

I've solved it.

 

I was using the BB Desktop Software for windows as instructed. (Using VMWare on my Mac).

 

Then I unpluged the device and got the red blinking lights. (1 red, then 6 reds)

 

The solution: I connected the device to my Mac version of BB Desktop Software and a message appeared telling me if I wanted to repair the device, I selected YES, and about 20 minutes later the Dev Alpha rebooted itself.

 

When it started, it had already installed the new version of the OS.

Re: Do not wipe Dev Alpha Update 10.0.9 Bundle 44

i've fix it too :smileyhappy:

 

in my case is only use WINDOWS 7 on your PC/LAPTOP.

 

i've try on WIN XP SP 3 for much times and always FAILED.

 

so change your system of PC/LAPTOP.

 

WINDOWS 7 is recommended

Re: Do not wipe Dev Alpha Update 10.0.9 Bundle 44

Try this:

1) Plug Dev Alpha into computer
2) Open device manager (right click on my computer, properties, hardware)
3) uninstalled the “RIM PlayBook CD-ROM” drivers that were installed
4) uninstalled USB Mass Storage Device that connected to RIM Playbook
5) unplugged dev-alpha
6) killed all processes that have “RIM” in them
7) Reinstalled AppLoaderWebSL_7.1.0.34.msi
8) ran desktop manager
9) rebooted dev-alpha (at this point, there should have a popup saying “BlackBerry smartphone driver installing”)
10) reboot dev-alpha again and desktop manager should prompt you that it can’t connect – click “repair”
11) press and hold power button again until you see red LED and now, it should recognize the device and sees an update and updates again.

Looks like I double posted, http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Other-BlackBerry-Smartphones/Warning-Do-not-secure-wipe-your-....

 

Sorry folks :smileytongue:

 

Also, if you think it is frozen, you can verify this.

 

Windows 7: 

1)  Control+Shift+Escape

2)  Goto Performance

You should see lots of activity

3)  Press Resource Monitor

4)  Double click on launcher.exe, and monitor the download
