I unfortunately have a lot of experience with the reload software 552 error. I have been on the phone with RIM quite some time. First, I do not think it is one particular bad APP. I think it occurs when the phone is stressed on a reboot or several apps not closing down fully. If you follow the directions on the blackberry website to reload the operating system with the APP Loader - WITH THE BATTERY OUT AT THE BEGINNING - you can always put the operating system back in. I went through many new phones too. What a waste of time. Also, if you use Verizon, after the operating system is back in, and you have done a restore of your data, and yes.... sorry to say, put back in your APPs, Verizon needs to send a service book to get the email messages going to you. For the last few weeks I have not installed Apps that don't close down fully when I close them, such as TIME, AP News. This has helped an I have not received the error again. I also did not install APPs that I could live without. I have had this so many times, that RIM is sure it is not one bad APP. I too hope that they solve this quickly. This is the most pathetic error and ruins an otherwise fabulous machine. At the beginning, I had post-traumtic stress disorder from seeing the phone do a reboot. They need to give this their top priority! Need I say, I back up every day and sync every day

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!

How to resolve "reload software:552"

I had this on a bold 9000 when trying to update the firmware. The only way i found around it was to remove the battery and plug it into the computer and reload the old firmware. This method worked for me after playing about unplugging and re-plugging, whether it will work on the 8520 i don't know, good luck!
