What steps do I take to reinstall Android Os?


If you are just trying to reinstall an update to OS you can go into setting>applications>all>google services framework. Clear Data and Cache and then go into your update manager and search for updates. If you are trying to install a fresh copy of android OS you will lose all data on phone and but google "Formatting X cell phone" and you should find a forum of instructions, look for XDA developers, but this is essentially factory resetting the phone.

I bought a blackberry storm 9530 few months ago and recently the screen started freezing frequently with in an hour or so. please help me solve my problem...............



Hi,

The easiest thing to do is to take it to the manufacturer because the phone is still under warranty, but, if you want to repair it your self, follow the step below.

The issue you describe appears to be corruption of one or more system files within the BlackBerry OS. A forced update should restore your BB to working condition, but there is the risk that you may lose your data. If that is a problem, do not proceed.
If you wish to restore the BB, please continue below after verifying that you have the following:
A. Computer (Windows) B. BlackBerry Desktop Manager software (BlackBerry.com) C. Latest version of the BlackBerry OS for your make/model BB

To get the OS, simply log on to your carriers website and download the latest version of the OS for your BB. Once the file is saved to your computer, you need to install the setup files just like you would any other program. When completed, proceed to step.

1. Open BB Desktop Manager 2. Remove the battery cover, battery and micro SD card (if you have one) from your BlackBerry. 3. Connect the BB to your computer via USB cable (without the battery in place, just the phone's shell). 4. There should be a few drivers that will load automatically and the BB Desktop Manager will recognize your BB. 5. Close the BB Desktop Manager once it has been detected. 6. Go to the following path. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\App-loader 7. Double-click the "App-loader.exec" application 8. Once it loads, the application will detect your BB and proceed to update your BlackBerry's OS. 9. If you are prompted to backup your BB data, please do so. If not, then proceed to step #10. 10. Select wipe (or secure wipe) to completely remove the existing OS and data.

A fresh, updated version of the BlackBerry OS will be installed on your BB. The process takes about 35-90 minutes to complete. Once done, the BB will automatically reboot and if you had an existing backup or created one before wiping/installing, you can now reopen the BB Desktop Manager and restore your backup to the BB.


As a side note, the BlackBerry Storm 9xxx series has been known to have many flaws. The Storm2 fixed many issues, but still left a lot behind.

If the problem persists after the update, check to see if you still have coverage under the manufacturer's 1yr warranty or if you pay for insurance service, your BB maybe covered under service replacement.

I downloaded a system update for my mobile, but I would prefer to have my phone the way it was before the update and would like to know how to undo it.


If it was not an automatic update it might be possible by doing a factory reset. However you WILL LOSE ALL data not saved onto a memory card. your contacts should redownload after entering your gmail.

  1. From the Start Screen, press the Menu button and select Settings.
  2. Select SD & phone storage.
  3. Select Factory data reset.
  4. Select Reset phone.
  5. You will be prompted again, and select Erase everything.
  6. The device will reset and restore the device to the original factory settings.

I turn on my sysnet582 sylvania netbook and get operating system not found


Go to the DigitalGadgets.com website and download the "OS update" (probably not the OS Shell update) follow the directions as listed. You will need a 1-2 Gigabyte SD card.

This will re-install the OS. Please note you will lose all data that is not on external storage.

You can try the OS Shell update. If you are not happy with that you can locate a copy of the previous OS update through the Yahoo Sylvania Netbook group.

Touch screen unresponsive


I'M NOT SURE IF THIS IS MY REQUEST,BUT THIS IS THE SPECIFIC PROBLEM. I THOUGHT THAT REINSTALLING THE OS AND DRIVERS MIGHT GET THINGS STRAIGHT, ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO UPDATE THE OS, SINCE CURRENTLY I DO NOT HAVE ANY DATA OR EXTRA APPS THAT I AM WORRIED ABOUT LOSING DURING AN UPGRADE. WHAT DO YOU THINK? I DON'T KNOW IF AN OS UPDATE IS AVAILABLE , OR IF THIS WOULD BE POSSILE.
