How to Fix an Error 102 in a Blackberry 8700C JVM


The JVM error code 102 on your Blackberry smart phone means that there are problems with your phone's .cod files. The JVM 102 error causes the phone to reset when booting. This creates a boot cycle and the phone will not be able to make calls. You can fix this error yourself, but the phone will have to be wiped of all its data. Once the phone is wiped of its data, you will be able to restore it back to working order.
