Question about O2 Xda Atom

Welcome Screen hangs

I'm not sure what's going on with my Atom. Yesterday, I turned it on, and the today screen seemed all screwed up. I reset it as I usually do, and now, the atom hangs on that initial screen that pops up with the O2 sign on it. It will not move beyond that. I've tried resetting it several times. I've also tried the hard reset, taken out the battery and put it back in and the atom is still hanging. I'd appreciate any other suggestions! Thanks...

Re: Welcome Screen hangs

It's a pretty tricky job to do by yourself. First, you need to reinstall ROM (operating system, bios, firmware), you can't however do that by yourself because you will be needing an active sync connection for this to work. If you can't boot to windows, you can't active sync. It is risky to try to put the Atom into flash mode and attemt a ROM update yourself. A compatible ROM version or a ROM image is somewhat difficult to find for Atom's. You should try the basic things, hard reset again, remove battery, let it unconnected all night and connect it back, then a hard reset again. If all these doesn't work I advice you to send your Atom to a specialised service to have the ROM update done properly.

My lgks20 can't load to today desktop

It seems there is fault on your software and so might require a reinstallation . Remove the battery and then switch on the phone , if the phone seems to HANG up then the software can be the issue.
It is ideal to get this confirmed before you reload .

My Phone does not switch on.

Perform a hard-reset.

At the expense of your data-loss,
atleast you get your device working back.

To perform a hard-reset on your O2 Xda Atom,
Keep pressed the POWER key, and then perform soft reset. After the device this leave everything and confirm that you want to hard-reset as shown on the screen.

O2 xDA Atom Exec Screen Blank After SofReset

Couple of things you can try to fix the issue, firstly try a hard reset

To perform a hard reset, use the stylus while pressing into the reset hole, press the power on/off button at the same time. Screen will prompt you to press the Green call and Red end call button together to confirm on hard resetting the device. *Note: Hard resetting the device will cause the device to be reset back to its original factory default settings and all data will be lost

Try that and if it doesnt resolve the issue then we can try another solution

O2 Xda Atom Exec cell shut down; can not turn back on. one time black screen white letters came on, last read said looking for usb port to down load?

The Black screen that you are talking about is the bootloader of your PPC. Its just like the BIOS of your Computer.

There might be some problem with the Operating system of your O2 Atom Exec.
Try a hard reset by holding the Power Key and then soft reseting.
I know that you will lose your data, but you may get your PPC working back.

Please Rate if this is helpful.

Soft Reset

Just loaded a safe mode program to my iPAQ, and now it seems to reset without any problems, even when not connected to the sync cable.
