| | Slow Reboot/Clean OS Install/Blackberry Browser
Please Login to Remove!
My BB 7100g is incredibly slow to reboot. And when I say slow, I mean it takes 7-10 minutes. I use a BES. My friend has a 7100 but does not use a BES and his is much faster.
When I first got the 7100, I installed an OS file that I found on this site that (1) gave me multiple themes, such as the vodafone icons, small icons, etc. and (2) installed the Blackberry Browser.
A couple of questions:
(1) Is the incredibly slow reboot time normal when using a BES? I have installed PocketDay and Berry 411. I ahve tried a few IM clients, but removed them all.
(2) I just upgraded to the latest Cingular OS file. I noticed that the various themes are gone, and only the default one is available. But, the Blackberry Browser is still there. My frind with the Non-BES 7100 does not have the Blackberry Browser, only the Cingular one. If I wipe the BB clean, and isntall the Cingular OS file, will I ge the BB Browser back, or just the Cingular one? Where can I get the BB one. I am thinking of starting fresh because of the slow reboot issue, assuming that is not normal.
(3) What is the easiest way to wipe it clean and start fresh? (I know, use the search button. I assume this is answered in one of the Stickys). But my quick look only disclosed how to upgrade and downgrade the OS, not how to totally wipe the BB clean and start from scratch. And since I was asking all these questions, I figured why not throw this one in.
(4) Can the data from Berry 411 and PocketDay be backed up and then restored after the clean install?
