Blackberry Bold 9650 Won't Finish Boot - Stuck at 65% on Status Bar
Todd_B
Member
I have a Blackberry Bold 9650 that halts the boot process on the Blackberry screen with the status bar. It always stops when the status is directly below the e in Blackberry. I have tried all of the suggestions on other boards (leave battery out overnight, plugin to wall and remove battery, wait 30 seconds and then put battery back in, etc).. It still just stays at about 65% complete on the status bar. Any ideas what to try next?

Hi,

 

When the problem you describe occurs, it is usually because of a recent application that was installed to your device.  You will need to reload your device's software.  You have what is referred to as a "bricked" or "nuked" device.  Follow the instructions found at Crackberry.com at http://crackberry.com/blackberry-101-lecture-12-how-reload-operating-system-nuked-blackberry and you should get going again.
