Bold 9900 - 507 error - cant recover

[ Edited ]

Hi - I have tried every option going on my imac to try and re-install the software after a system crash - and cannot re-install - so i tried with PC (parallels) of both the O2 uk generic software with apploader and also from the RIM site - O2 will not help as they say it is a softyware issue and after a number of emails to RIM - have given up - I now have a almost new Blackberry which is useless as cannot reload - the apploader on pc starts to work but goes no further than 100 per cent of RAM boot disc -= the power seams to cycle on the bold then stops

Hi and Welcome to the Community...apologies for the delayed reply...hopefully you have already sorted this, but just in case.


While I have heard of using a MAC/Parallels to conduct these activities, I believe that in your situation I would recommend using a true PC. These articles may prove useful:

Good luck and let us know!
