Hi,

You need to connect your device to your computer via the USB cable included with your device and attempt to restore your software using Blackberry Device Manager.  See this document from Blackberry for more info here.  There could be several reasons the upgrade failed, but you should be able to restore your device.

Hi,

It won't show your PIN number in the BDM due to the errors that occurred while loading the OS.  Connect the device anyway and go to restore and go through the process.  It will restore your device even though the PIN number doesn't show.
