Updating blackberry 8830 software
Been wondering if the Black Berry Smartphone you already own will be getting the OS 5.0 update everybody keeps talking about?
We knew there would be a cut-off somewhere down the road of older device models and it turns out we were pretty spot on with our hunches.
It is not recognized or found on Desktop Manager or in Device Manager on my laptop.
Now, no amount of jiggling will show that I am connected even though the PC knew that the Blackberry was connected ("Driver Software Installation" recognizes a Blackberry smartphone). Obviously the "Erasing Applications" remains frozen at 40%.
I have a dark screen, phone off, and the dreaded 2 x red flashing light every 3 seconds that another forum poster mentioned.

My Blackberry 8830 may now be a paperweight from trying to update the software.
then hopefully you'll at least get a JVM507 message... Last time I did this, I ended up having to re-install desktop manager, too.
