BB Torch 9800 - Black Screen

While trying to download the BB News application from your site, my BB Torch 9800 stopped working. It was in a continuous restart mode - as it tried to restart 3/4 down the road it would start again from the beginning over and over... until I removed the battery.


I put the battery back in and tried a soft restart with the Alt Shift Del key. Now the BB will not even attempt to start. I have found the black screen of death. Help!

Re: BB Torch 9800 - Black Screen

BlackBerry Desktop Software is your lifeline in this situation.  Any recovery you'll do will come through BDS.  In order to connect to BDS, have a look at this article:
