    Sprint Pearl 8130 Keeps Resetting Itself

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, so I just got this phone a few hours ago and it seems to be in a reset loop. I have wiped it using the Security setting in Options, and done a few battery pulls. I can use the phone for about 5-10 minutes, then it freezes and turns off, the LED goes red and it resets. I haven't done any kind of software upgrade yet, cause I'm not sure that it isn't already up to date.

    Its running 4.3.0.71

    Any ideas? I'm thinking I'll just have to swap it out, but if anyone has an answer, I'm all ears.

    Thanks

    You can try to upgrade the OS. Maybe that will help. Not sure if it will help though.

    This is the latest OS for your device: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ilanguage.html

    So apparently I've steped on ur toes, it wasn't on purpose no need to get huffy. I was under the impression that the 8130 came witg the most updated os. The link u provided came on my pearl and that was what I was trying to tell him. Your saying the os the new pearls come with is not the most recent os? I didn't know that, how often do they upgrade the os? Sorry

    I'm not huffy, just didn't want the new user to get confused.

    And the OS depends on your Carrier...each one has a different OS that they release for their devices. So lets say that Telus came out with the device first they will have one OS, then Verizon, came out with it later, then say Sprint came out with it. Sprint would have the lastest OS for the device since usually they have probably done some bug updates and a few improvements on it.

    Keep in mind you can use any OS as long as it's for your device and you delete the vendor file.

    Wow, that's amazing I really had no idea thanks, now if I can only remember it. So each carrier has its own vendor file then? Is that why u delete it?

    yea, basically the vendor file tells what carrier it's for, if you leave it there it won't update your device if it isn't the correct vendor.

    I brought it back to Sprint for a new one. And guess what? I'm thinking that it might have something to do with one of the Sprint programs, nav or TV. So I'm going to wipe it and reinstall the OS.

    Here we go!

    I usually just edit the vendor file to unlock some hidden themes and such.
