    BlackBerry 8100 won't boot up.

    Advertisement



    If this has been done (to death), please excuse this; I can't find any other thread covering this problem.

    I recently tried installing eWorks on my Pearl, and after DM loaded it on and said it had been installed successfully, the Pearl wouldn't exit the "spinning hourglass/white screen." After letting it do that for an hour, I panicked and soft-reset the Pearl. Now it won't complete the startup sequence.

    not sure about eWorks, but im pretty sure you may need to reload your OS.

    maybe you got a bad install of eWorks or maybe/possibly the wrong version?

    not sure who your carrier is, but here is a link to the latest US OS upgrade.

    I'm trying an OS reinstall now, as a matter of fact, it's currently erasing apps and is set to reload OS and apps as selected - note that I've NOT opted to reload anything from Dynoplex this time around. lol

    My carrier is T-Mobile, I dl'ed their latest version of the OS.

    awesome!
    i'd recheck the eWorks...or maybe download from handango?
    the hourglass of doom, in most cases, will only be solved with an OS reload.

    So this isn't an uncommon thing, then? Don't misread, I'm not asking if it happens ALL the time, I know it doesn't. Just relieved that it isn't something so bizarre and unheard of that no one can relate. lol

    haha...it shouldn't happen *all* the time, and if it does, i would have to lean towards the 'your pearl is defective' before having you reload an OS. its simple, but not easy for newbs

    most of the time, a simple battery pull/soft reset will cure most bb issues.
