how to reinstall firmware

My blackberry Pearl 8110 is dead. It was spinning an hour glass continuously. I took out the battery and waited for a couple of minutes then put the battery back. Now I only see the red light flashing. What should I do the rescue?

Re: how to reinstall firmware

Hi seanzhou,


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

Try backing up your device via the BlackBerry Desktop Software and performing a clean reload of your device software. http://bbry.lv/bpv7DT Make sure to test for the issue before restoring any data from your backup file.


Hope this helps.
