Exclamation Storm Event Log & Alt+ E A C E

Please Login to Remove!

This seems to differ from eval units to production units. For the event log, press and hold 123 and number lock then press "/"/ and that will bring up the event log.

For what's usually Alt+ E A C E on the Storm enter 2*92

where do you bring up the keyboard?

you can't just bring up the keyboard on the home screen. so i tried going to messages. brought up the keyboard, followed the steps and nothing.

Jason Mark - THANK YOU!!! You are the man. That was also the Shift+Alt+H .

To starbai - on the home screen just press the Menu key and choose Show Keyboard.

This is neat, but what can do you with this information? Used for developers?

Nothing happens when I type 2*92 at the home screen. If I hit enter afterwards, it just locks bb.

I guess I'm doing something wrong. I'm using the number lock, then typing 2*92 then enter.

How to get the Keyboard from the home screen. Press the Menu key and choose Show Keyboard.



Pressing 2*92 as described earlier by Jason Mark (a.k.a. - The Man) should result in a screen that looks like this.



If you can press enter after pressing 2*92, then you most likely did something wrong because the Help screen comes up immediately after pressing the last 2. Be sure you are holding the Storm on its side (landscaped).

Hope this helps.

PS - I used CaptureIt to get my screen shots for those who might ask.

There is another way to get to this screen, while in portrait mode, on your main screen hold down your escape key, then click your upper left corner of your screen, then upper right, then upper left and then upper right and it should go to that same screen.

I hope I didnt confuse to many people on this

was just going to mention this trick.... just a clarification though -- you don't "click" the corners; you just touch the corners.

True that, my bad no clicking just touching the corners.

Although (since I stumbled upon your post after I'd already tried it) clicking will give the same effect.

FYI, in SureType mode, this would be:

NumLock, 1, ?, 7, 1
