Possibly Bricked Z10



I was wondering if there's anyone here who could help me out with my phone problem. A few days ago, my phone ran out of battery while it was in the middle of an update. I was out then so I wasn't able to charge it. I plugged it in as soon as I got home and left it overnight to charge. When I woke up, I was surprised to see that my phone would not turn on. The notification light just blinked twice continuously. Holding down the power button would keep the light steady for a bit then just continue blinking. I've tried autoloading the OS using one of those .exe files to no avail. From the brief moment that I could see the error message, I believe that my phone was rejecting the RAM image. Do you guys know of any way to reinstall the OS on my phone? Hope you can help! :-s Thanks!

First, connect your Z10 to the wall outlet charger, and leave it several hours to charge, and then with it STILL connected to the wall outlet charger, remove the battery and reinsert.

LED still behaved the same way. It still blinked twice repeatedly. I'm hoping there's a way to have this fixed without having to send it out of the country for repairs.

If nothing works then you should try reinstalling the OS for the mobile phone have you tried the tutorial on crackberry about this
