Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone

1 Answer

I woke up this morning to find find the screen of my new BlackBerry Curve reading "JVM Error 545 incompatible or corrupt filesystem." It was charging all night. Unless my roommate messed with it, I have done nothing to it. I don't have any of my information backed up to my laptop, yet. What am I supposed to do with it?

Reinstall your blackberry OS, and you can unlock blackberry 8800 with pressing any password 10 times. But you will lose all your previous data during blackberry unlocking process, not too good at least you still can use your blackberry again.

You have to update the software via Blackberry Desktop Manager. Timing is key as it maynot work the first time... It may take 20-50 tries but this is the only way to get it back up. If you can indeed get it back up everything will be erased. Sorry for the bad information.

to correct this issue try this method

You need to reflash the OS on the phone you should take the battery out first then connect it via the usb cable to the laptop/pc you are using then open the blackberry desktop manager,click on the apploader, then install the OS.

pls not that when u click on the apploader the pin should be PIN:UNKNOWN you make need to do this like 4x before the pc sees the pin:unknown but it will work once it see the pin:unknown you can re-insert the battery and continue with reflashing the phone

Blackberry jvm error

The very same thing happened to my Blackberry Curve. The system has been completely wiped-out. The service is still there but you need to download the software to your phone again. You can fix it if you have access to the internet without the CD. Go to then click on Software, then click on Device Software and follow the instructions from there( your phone must be connected to the computer while doing this with the USB cord) This will reload the software back on to your blackberry. Also, beware, you will lose all of your contacts that you had previously stored in your phone. I am so sorry that you are experiencing this on your vacation. Hope this helps.
