Here ya go.  Follow the instructions exactly and you should have no problem.  You'll need a data plan, though, to upgrade to OS 4.5.

Re: Blackberry 8100 - Software upgrade

I said yes to the upgrade alert that showed the first time I ran the desktop software. It did all normal stuff for downloading and when done, the phone turned off and a red light started blinking, very slowly. That was yesterday noon. It's been less than 24 hours later and still the same. I tried taking the battery out, the SIM out, changing the SIM, re-charging, plugging to my computer again with the software running and nothing. I found a forum that says it's a nuked blackberry...I have important info on it, I need it back, not so much the phone that is almost 2 years old.

Ugh.  Why didn't you just follow the instructions I gave? I don't like the automatic updates.  That's why I gave you the instructions I did. 

 

Did the device get through a backup before dying?  It usually saves them in My Documents and they will say LoaderBackup (date).ipd.

 

You may be able to save the device with the following:

and if that doesn't work, try this:

 

http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/What_to_do_next_if_Jl_Cmder_will_not_connect_and_wipe

 

If you get the device to a white screen with a small icon in the center and "Error 507" then go ahead and follow the instructions I posted to begin with.  AFter the OS gets loaded then you can use DM to restore the backup.  if it didn't get a backup made then your data is gone.
