Problems updating Storm 9500 (AUS) firmware.
I am having a couple of issues with installing a beta OS...
I have the Storm 9500 (Vodafone AUS) and have tried numerous times now to install v.188.8.131.52 firmware onto the phone...
Seems like no matter what I try, I have a nuked BB Storm. It just keeps resetting. I install it, phone works ok for 1-2minutes and then decides its time to bugger off and reset itself.
Is there something I am missing? I have tried in these methods:
-> Update through BB Desktop Manager with firmware installed onto PC
-> Update by wiping phone using BBSAK and then using AppLoader from installed firmware directory.
I am lost here, but after experiencing v.184.108.40.206 for just those couple minutes beforehand, I feel I cannot go back to v.220.127.116.11.... I need it....
Edit: Vendor.XML was removed already straight after installing the firmware onto the PC...
I would suggest downloading 216 from another source. Be sure you uninstall the one you currently have installed.
Ahh. I had this and I can help!

After this my device did reboot a few times but the activation did creep up each time and eventually made it.
Since then, Ive used a few hybrids and not seen this issue reappear so I think Ive nailed it but I cant be sure until the next beta\official 9500 5.0 release.
just to say, I didnt nuke to upgrade from 4 to 5 but used apploader route....
hope this works for you...I share your pain!
same deal with me dude
as soon as my phone goes to screen saver
the creen wont swich back on and i loose all functionality
only a battery pull does the trick but doesnt shake the problem
im a 9500 user and have never once had a rebooting issue . could you have a faulty os try another source . are you doing a full restore ?
i have had problems from trying to do a restore when coming from a 4.7 to 5.0
i sugest try removing dm from the prosess completely. it changes core files
wipe with bbsak install with bbsak .
if you have to use dm only do an advanced restore and manualy select contacts etc.
hope this helps .
also try stepping up to 230 i have heard good things about this with a bit of a lyricidal hybrid thrown in to the mix.
