Re: Dev Alpha Won't Turn On

I had the same problem but in my case was able to restore the device using a Mac

 

If you know someone with a Mac install BB Desktop on it and reset the thing

 

For some reason the Mac client is less fussy than the PC version

 

This worked for me so my DevAlpha is up and running again with the latest OS build

 

While I can't guarantee this will work it's worth a go
