Mr A
Just yesterday, my BlackBerry started showing a jvm error 102. I hadn't installed or deleted anything recently on my blackberry so it was difficult to figure out what had happened. I hadn't backed up my blackberry phone in over a month and im certain this wouldn't have happened if i had backed it up. I decided no matter what i would not wipe my blackberry phone because of a

silly error 102. So I got out my USB cable. Within half an hour, my blackberry was back up and running, no wipe or reinstall needed. Keep reading to find out how i did it. :)

Basically the error message 102 is a .cod file that has been corrupted. Your BlackBerry, being sort of a smart phone, refuses to load the corrupted file. To possibly, and I do mean

possibly since this option may not always work, you will need JL_Cmder installed on your computer (grab a copy here and install it . Make sure you install it into the Program Files on

your C: drive. Make a mental note of whatever you saved it as since you will need the exact name you gave it), a USB cable and of course your seemingly lifeless BlackBerry.


Step 1

Connect your BlackBerry to your computer with the USB cable.


Step 2

Run JL_Cmder and select Option #2 - Event Log. It may take a few tries to get the software to open (no clue why, but if someone does know, feel free to enlighten us by replying below).


Step 3

Scroll to the bottom of the log and look for "JVM Error 102." The line before it should tell you exactly what file is causing the error. It might look something like this. Save/write

down the file name somewhere; you will need it later.


Step 4

On your computer, go to Start > Run, and type "cmd" then press the enter key.


Step 5

Change the directory to the JL_Cmder installation folder by typing the following:
cd "C:\Program Files\JL_Cmder\" and press the enter key. If you named your JL_Cmder anything else (mine is JL_Cmder v1.9.0, here is where you may need to type more into the

command like this: cd "C:\Program Files\JL_Cmder v1.9.0\")


Step 6

Type the following command to remove the corrupted file:

javaloader.exe -u erase -f FILENAME

Where FILENAME is, type the name of the .cod file I told you to save or write down. Press the enter key.


Step 7

Disconnect your phone from your PC and restart it. Presto! Your BlackBerry should boot up like normal and you can then go make a backup in case it happens again.


My blackberry seems to have fixed itself and is running great. The only thing I noticed after the reboot was my BBM icon was missing. According to the device the application was still

on there but I couldn't locate it. I reinstalled and everything is working now on my blackberry phone. Please like this post if it helped you. :)
