    Exclamation Whitescreen issue

    Hey guys,

    I am new to this website so I'm not sure if this in the correct topic and what not but here goes anyway.

    My Curve 8900 has started to whitescreen recently and its been getting really frustrating as I can no longer boot it up without it being charged.

    I have seen Neolantis' guide on how to install an OS as I saw that was a way to stop the whitescreening but I am not sure what OS to download.

    I have backed up the phone with DM and with BBSAK and now I want to wipe the phone and install an OS.

    I am just worried that I won't be able to install the OS correctly and/or I install the wrong one and won't be able to use my phone.

    I'm not sure if that makes sense or if anyone understands what I mean but if anyone could help it would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    The latest OS we have for the 8900 is 5.0.0.1036, and you can download that here Telcel_8900_5.0.0.1036 - Downloads - BlackBerryOS.com Since you already know where the guide is and have properly backup up your phone all your need to do now is load this OS. A couple things to do first:

    1. Make sure you remove any other BlackBerry OSes from your computer
    2. Make sure you remove your vendor.xml file.

    Thanks for the reply!

    So I use the Telcel OS even if i'm with Vodafone correct?

    Sorry but I don't want to mess my phone up!

    *Edit* I'm from the UK, so will it all still work here?

    Thank you!

    Your guide is really helpful! I am still yet to download an OS but I will tomorrow and then I will try to install it!

    Just a quick question, if I leave me SIM card in whilst I wipe the phone, will I loose my contacts? Or are they backed up within the back up?

    Thanks!
