Angry Updating to v4.5.0.44 keeps Restarting my 8100 after 1 min

Please Login to Remove!

I received an email from BlackBerry to upgrade my 8100 pearl...and i did.

It updated fine. Then it kept waiting to 'restore' the back-up but it didnt work as the hour-glass kept there for 20mins.

v4.5.0.44 (Platform 2.7.0.61)

After that it said "back up through the desktop service". I used the phone for a bit to see the updates.

The phone became REALLY slow compared to the old OS. If I received an email or something, the LED would go red...like a torch...blinking was gone.

It would only go if I restarted the phone.

Then I restored it through the desktop software and since then the phone keeps restarting.

It keeps RESTARTING now after literally 1-2 minutes.

Whether I pull the battery out, or whatever I do...it just keeps restarting. It is super slow now...and if it keeps working for a while...sometimes the red LED light is back.

VERY very rarely it works for 10-15 mins...but then restarts. It even restarts between calls if I dial as soon as it starts.

Also, if someone sends me a voice-note via bb-messenger, the new OS opens the media player and it just does not play the file...keeps saying "Buffering..."


PLEASE help as the phone just keep restarting :(

What do I do?

Can't imagine why 4.5.0.44 would be recommended. At the top of the 8100 page is 4.5.0.102 which is FANTASTIC.

Download it and try that.

Welcome to the forums!

You can upgrade to a different version of the 4.5 OS, or try wiping your device and re-loading your current OS-the link below should get you started on that.

It sounds as though you may have used your Berry during the install process, and possibly unplugged it from the USB before it was complete. It is typical for an OS upgrade to take 45 minutes or a little longer to complete fully. It is recommended that the phone not be used until the upgrade has completed.

It is aslo a good idea to back up the data currently on your Berry using the Backup and Restore option on the Desktop Manager.


Good luck!

Wirelessly posted (8130)

As noted try upgrading to the highest OS. If this is your first time on 4.5 try reformatting your SD card in 4.5, check old 3rd party apps and themes. They have been culprits in the past.
