What do i need to do if my blackberry curve displays a message saying reload software:552?


I have had the "Reload Software: 552" error on 2 BlackBerry Curve 8900s. When it occurred again (last night) this is what I did:


1. Reboot your BB: alt-rightShift-del

2. Start a software reload from the Windows desktop, via the BB Desktop Manager.

When the reload started, I would get a screen on my BB showing 2 computers talking to each other. After a few seconds, this would crash into the 552 error.

3. 3-5 seconds into the software reload, CANCEL the desktop.

4. This should freeze the apps on both the desktop and the BB. The BB should still be showing the 2-computers.

If you do anything on the desktop at this point, the BB will crash into the 552 error again.

5. Terminate the desktop app processes via the Windows task manager. There are 4 RIM/BB processes to shut down.

6. At this point, the BB Desktop Manager app should be gone, and the BB should still show the 2-computers.

7. Now, start the BB desktop manager back up again, and intitiate the software reload again ...

A 4thumbs up will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for choosing FixYa!

My bb hangs a lot. there is a java.lang error which appears after every restart. have to restart the instrument nearly 7 to 8 times a day. am really fed up with the speed as well.plz...

Sounds like one of your apps is crashing the phone. Your best option is to do a factory wipe on your BB, download the latest code from the Blackberry website, and load your apps one at a time to see if the problem is gone.

Hello there!

Try to uninstall your app, and better yet to set your bb to format. It is the same thing happened to me last month with my Bold 9780 and now, it work just fine and smoothly.

I get error 200 on my bb 8520 how can i fix it

This error code is usually caused by a 3rd party application being downloaded on the phone. Below are the directions that may solve your problem.

What you will need:
A Windows PC (Only tested with Windows XP so Unix and Mac users may need other methods)
Javaloader (Get it Here:
BB Device (this is your actual device)
USB cable to connect to computer

How do I save myself some time:
Download and extract the Javaloader program to a folder of your choosing but remember it for the next steps.

In Windows XP click Start -> Run -> Type CMD and click OK

change your directory to the drive and directory you saved the javaloader program to
(to change drive type x: where x is the drive letter, to change directory type cd\<directoryname>\<subdirectoryname> etc)

Type "javaloader -usb dir >dir.txt" without the quotes (this will generate a list of all programs on your device into a file called dir.txt in the same directory as Javaloader)

Go to the directory with javaloader.exe in Windows Explorer and open the dir.txt file.

The file has a list of a bunch of module names and versions, etc. This is where I can't give you the specific answer to your problem but can provide some guidance.

I only recommend trying to delete 3rd Party applications so look through the list for module names that look like third party apps. You can also sometimes tell 3rd party apps by the version number as well but don't use this as the bible because some RIM apps are not the version of the OS. Once you find some apps you want to try to delete to fix the problem follow the steps below. I recommend you do this one at a time and reset (if the device doesn't automatically reset) between each erase function to narrow down the issue.

Once you find the module to delete go back to the CMD window and type the following:

"javaLoader.exe -usb erase -f <badmodule_name>" where <badmodule_name> is the module you identified to delete which must be typed exactly as it appears in the dir.txt file.

Keep repeating until it reboots successfully.

If this fails you'll need to - or have a repair facility - wipe and reload your phone's operating system

Jvm 102 error

The problem is a java related problem. Your only option is to reinstall the OS after wipeing the handheld clean. Here is a little step by step for you.

1) Get javaloader (can be found on
2) Get the latest Blackberry OS from RIM which you can get HERE
3) Run the Blackberry OS installer you just downloaded.
4) Shutdown Blackberry Desktop Manager on your PC.
5) Open a command prompt window.
6) Change to the folder where the javaloader program is on your computer (If you put javaloader in C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32, then you do not need to change folders in the comand prompt window.)
7) Execute the command "javaloader -usb wipe" (no quotes), and wait for the handheld to reboot with error code 507
8) Disconect the handheld from the PC, restart Blackberry desktop manager, and reconect the blackberry to your pc.
9) You will be prompted to "upgrade the OS on the handheld" follow the prompts, and when you BB reboots, it will be reloaded with the factory defualts.
10) Login to, and resend your service books.
11) Restore your BB applications, by reinstalling, or redownloading them.

I hope this helps, if it does please rate accordingly, Thanks, David
