Hey guys, I was updating my dev alpha for the latest and updated only when he was caught when he was restarting on again, he fought on the home screen and not only leaves only shows "BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha" without animations, and I've tried connecting it with power + vol, the BlackBerry Desktop Software recognizes it and I try to restore but when it downloads the update and try to install it says it can not find the device that I do personally? help me: ((

There are some updeate threads in the forum you can look at.
Try removing the developer password before doing updates. Also set the connect to Windows / Mac options in the options menu. Thats if you can access the device after doing the update. Try also rebooting the device and NOT plugging it into pc. Sometimes it needs to charge up first so leave it off for a while but plugged into usb.
Have a look at the other threads on updating problems. It may help you.

In case mentioned above password can't be removed.
In my case there were no password set.
And device doesn't charge anymore.

Sorry to hear that. I have seen other developers complaining about dead dev alpha's.
Does the device have a blinking red LED? If so there is hope, some have managed to fix that. Again search the forum, but I'm sure you did that already.
R.I.P dev alpha.

I have the same problem here. I am considering the BB10 unit effectively bricked for now.
I have, however, dug a little more. I connected the device to a Linux host and it's alive enough to initiate a connection on the USB bus. From my syslog transcript:

BTW - this thread was a slightly different problem but in my experience the SEQUENCE in which you do things is important. Check out how he solved it, it may offer light.
