Loading firmware on the Blackberry 7230

by on Aug.22, 2009, under General Jazz

If you are trying to load firmware on a Blackberry 7230 or 7290 with a recent version of the Blackberry Desktop Manager, it will consistently fail. I encountered such a problem this morning. Tried using JL_Cmder, but still no luck. It would would quit with the error “COM error during open”.  It had no problems connecting to the 8700 and 8310 Blackberrys.

I decided to downgrade the Blackberry Desktop Manager to v3.6 which I had laying around on a memory stick. Installed the v3.6 after a quick uninstall of  v4.7. Tried the firmware load on the 7230  and it went through without a hitch. JL_Cmder also works fine now with both the 7230 and 7290.

Issue discussed in  GSMForums.
