Re: Error Message JVM Error 517

It means that your BlackBerry is totally useless until your reload the OS.  Plug your phone in to your PC and open BlackBerry Desktop Software.  Once the software sees that you don't have an operational OS loaded to your phone, it will suggest loading one.  Just follow the prompts and you should be fine.
