    Loop???

    Advertisement



    Hola Bb'ers,

    My 8700 is currently in a loop, where the hourglass icon appears, the phone looks as if it's going to power on, but then shuts down, and repeats the process.

    Any Ideas??

    yes, you will probably need to reload the device OS .. use this:

    what did you download recently? a theme perhaps?

    blaquegenius -- i can only assume, at this point, that your 8700 OS was 4.1, NOT 4.2 (unless you have upgraded??). once you restore your bb, then you should 1) download 4.2 OS so that you can have the newer themes or 2) stick to 4.1 and ONLY download themes that are 4.1 compatible


    downloading a theme that isn't compatible with your bb very bad for your bb ... usually will put it in the continuous loop you are talking about...or just render it useless ... until you reload the OS

    THANKS FOR THE FIX!!!!!

    If I was thinking clearly, I would have checked the OS first before downloading. Seeing as I just upgraded another 8700 last week.
