    Default Sony Ericsson - White Screen of Death

    Hey guys,

    just a word of warning!!!

    I suffered the infamous SE white screen of death due to accidently pulling the usb cord out of my w810i after transfering files from my pc. Whatever you do make sure you safely disconect your phone....

    The white screen of death is a flashing white screen and your phone will not work, had to send it back, but luckily my provider sent me a new phone the next day!! only had it for a few days tho!!

    Apparantly quite a common bug that SE has not sorted out....

    ive encountered the white-flashing screen problem myself. what ive learned is that the phone reboots itself whenever the white-flashing occurs. it flashes about 4 times then reboots, maybe a bug on the OS, but it aint broke,. ^_^

    Use XS++ to reflash it then.
