    8330 restarting itself!?!

    Advertisement



    hi guys, my 8330 seems to be restarting itself? its restarted 4 times in the last 2 hours!!! after it reboots it shows the hour glass spinning, then it says "verifying security software" i had this problem with my other 8330, but not as bad as this one, only happened once a day, but i decided to trade it for the new red one. Does anyone know what the problem could be? i was thinking maybe it could be caused by one of the applications i have installed? since it happened to both phones

    here is what i have installed currently:

    Aerize Expplorer 2008

    iBerry Theme
    JiveTalk

    try re-installing the OS, that should solve your problem, but make sure you do a back up first.

    It very well could be an app, you may need to remove your 3rd party apps and re-install one at a time to try and find the troublemaker.........

    An app screwed up my phone about a month ago. I had to delete all my 3rd party stuff and start from scratch. But its fine now.You should do a back-up once a week.
    This is my Blackberry. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me my Blackberry is useless. Without my Blackberry I am useless.

    I'm actuall having the same issue on my 8820 after upgrading to os 4.5.0.52. It seems to have something to do with my 2gig. memory card because once I format it, the rebooting stops, but as soon as I put anything on it, the reboot loop starts all over again. But if I downgrade back to os 4.2, it won't happen again. It makes no sense.

    Thanks Abercrombie, I will check it out. it sounds like one of the 3rd party apps is causing the problem.

    I have had my 8330 for 4 weeks now and it has never restarted itself like that.

    Since you reinstalled and it's still happening I really recommend removing all you 3rd party apps and themes and adding them back slowly till u find out which one causes that and then permanently delete that app....it can't be good for your BB if it's going into forced restarts all the time.....just my opinion
