Default HELP! My Bold only shows a white screen!

Please Login to Remove!

(Tried searching with no luck)

Hi! I don't know what's going on with my Bold. It only shows a white screen when I boot it up! There's no hourglass or anything. I didn't load any OS recently. Only the .282 OS when it came out.

It all started when I noticed my memory dropped below 10MB. So I restarted my phone like a always do (alt+shift+del). All it does is boot to a white screen with no hourglass or anything! Tried to do a battery pull with the same results.

Tried to wipe the device with JL_Cmder with no luck as well. I have not tried to reset to factory default yet.

I also tried reloaded the device with the loader and it still the same...

Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Did you drop it at all? Or drop liquid on it?

No, I've never dropped it or anything...

I think it may have been all the apps that I've loaded on the phone.

It works perfectly fine now...

I basically followed these instruction to fix it:

How-To Wipe with JL_Cmder - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

Basically use the JL_Cmder and wiped out everything, and loaded everything back on. Good thing I back up my stuff regularly.

I actually loaded the .266 OS first, and then upgraded back to the .282 OS after.
