Endless Reboot Bricked Bold after upgrading to 5.0.348
I believe I totally bricked my phone installing 5.0.348
I'm with Celcom Malaysia hence I disregarded the warning with AT&T
At first everything went fine, it rebooted OS5.0 came up and everything seemed fine and dandy. I installed my apps and all was still good.
I updated Blackberry Messenger (and it rebooted once fine), facebook, Googletalk and MSN Messenger. All proceeded smoothly.
Then I tried a battery pull...
And now all of a sudden...it's stuck in an endless reboot cycle. Red light steady, then it goes off and then tries it again. nothing on screen, just black.
Even when plugged into the USB port (when I was trying to wipe it again with BBSak), the computer won't detect it and hence I cannot start the restore/wipe process
I'm pretty upset that I lost this phone and have no idea on how to restore it.
Big BEWARE on this OS build...
Uninstall 348 from your PC
Load 238 to your PC
Delete the vendor.xml file
Remove the Battery from your device
Connect your device to your pc through you usb cable
Click next, you may have to do this a couple of times before it will read your device.
install your battery
Downgrade your OS
i'm also using BOLD + Celcom...but my problem using this version is my device keep reboot itself..first 3 day seem ok..but after install 3rd party app..then the problem comes..
Good morning. How do you delete the vendor.xml file?
Newbie and ready to learn
i think more stable 1 is .144. dun hav the reboot issue. hope the coming .390 solve the restart issue.
