Default 7100 Internal Device Error

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,
Can anybody help me with a problem with BlackBerry type 7100g.
The handheld freeze and shows an error on the display "Catastrophic...."

When I type INFO, more information displayed:

Catastrophic Assertion Failure

Suspended task:

v1 = 8
v2 = 0
v3 = 26

Can anyone help me to explain what this error message means? and how to fix this internal error?

Thank You

Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!

It worked for me on a 7100t that was displaying "Catastrophi..."
