Storm 1 System Hung Up
dagr47
Newbie

Hi,

I've got the latest version of OS running on my Storm 1 and everything was OK until today.  Now every time I try to do something I get the little clock icon showing the phone is busy and it may or may not perform the task.  I assume this means the system is hung up.  Is there a way to do a hard reset?  Is this a memory issue?

 

Thanks, Dave

Hi,

Pull the battery out for a few seconds and then allow it to reboot.  A daily battery pull will keep any Blackberry running a little smoother.

Hello, yes, a battery pull will make a difference, only if you have a lot of apps, if not as many apps...I don't do a battery pull everyday, the only apps I have is, quicklaunch,berryweather,berrybuzz,Pandora,themes, a couple of others the most memory I've got down to is 40 MB from 49 MB phone could last a week only if I don't download anything, you know my smart phone had problems to was not flowers and roses the very first time I got it. I was so frustrated but I was like I see that person having the same problem and he fixes it! So my mind set is, so if that person can do it why can't I do it! This is what I did cleaned out browser memory, cleaned out device memory which is not enabled and you have to enable.. Clear event log, then turn off phone and do a 5 minute battery pull that should work if not this will definitely work security wipe do that a couple of times if no dice in first try again, trust me it has to work it did for me and I was about to get rid of storm! after problems, honestly i forgot there was timing clock. The most common thing to do if a lot of browsing is clean out all memory often and turn off phone then do a battery pull. Storm works its just that the way people do it, this storm should be for advanced users!

JCM, really 40 to 49Mb on an S1?  I have never had that even before loading any apps? I wonder why we don't have more it's like you have a larger memory chip on the main board plus the new 5.0 OS uses more memory. Please do not misunderstand I am not challenging you, just curious. The best I can get today is 29MB after emptying everything, full clean and the keyboard log wipe, plus a bat. pull. All I have as far as apps, is Pandora, Berry-buzz, Face book.

It could be the reason of me removing some stuff in D. manager loader, only kept the needed.  for smart phone.

JCM I do get a memory bump when I pull bat. I will go from 24Mb to 29Mb by doing a bat pull.

 But I am really interested in how you removed stuff in D. mgr loader? Is there any down side to removing it? How do you remove it?

LCromwell, you recover memory in battery pulls, in last reply kind looked like you get more memory than what you have in battery pulls, you see what im saying.

 

About removing no downside? the only I kept is what you can't remove.

Okay, I'm sure you've been there as well all? D. Manager from app loader I removed everything that you can? Now I don't know if documents to go or memo, tasks are needed for you, the phone doesn't need it? as well language inputs, I only kept English, other than that remove like games, help etc., I'm not sure if you can remove maps but I kept it, that's pretty much it, About going there from Desktop Manager go to application loader and follow the rest its not that hard to proceed the next steps? Uncheck what you don't want and go next step. Hope this works out? Hey check attachment the memory I have right now...
