    I cannot stress strongly enough, how much I'd like to have one of you try my suggestion.

    Have the official running, shrink it through Chrome or Sachesi, shrink 1151 Blitz (I'll upload a shrunk copy for you if needed), and do a nondestructive upgrade through Sachesi.

    Please! Pretty pretty pretty please!

    If you could tell me what to remove thru chrome (using the PlayBook extension?)I would be willing to try it, I have the faulty phone until Wednesday. And uploading the shrunken OS for me to try would help too.

    Yes, I'd be game for that too. And a shrunken 1151 would be helpful. Can't say for sure when I'll get it done but I will certainly give it a shot.

    Tried a cfp nuke-a last night. Then removed SIM and SD card. Autoloaded 1151, gave it a few of my usual settings, restarted, and personal settings gone once again. Frustratingly, as ever, the 10.3 leak appears to work fine in all other respects. Reverted to a 10.2 Autoloader then updated to 10.2.1.3062, which is running flawlessly.

    I can't help some of the other posters with regard to when this blue LED issue first appeared, or my original installation methods. It was certainly a 10.3 leak but the way I did the first leak escapes me now that I've tried so many different methods. I should point out that I'm new to leak installing, so it's certainly possible in my own case that I did something slightly out of the ordinary which has contributed to this.

    Trying this shrunken 1151 procedure will be my last attempt, as I really do feel I've wasted enough time on this. Roll on January when we get the official 10.3.1.......unless of course it also suffers this issue. Now that would be interesting...

    Thanks y'all! Uploading to Mega now, in the meantime you can shrink your current OS following this thread:

    Don't have to go completely insane with it. Extra language files, firstlaunch and retaildemo should suffice.

    Lol honestly i dont even know we'll see when the phone boots up, i had to do it over the web, Link wouldn't work. Found it to be 10.2.1.2976


    1. Revert to Official OS - Done
    2. Shrink OS- Done
    3. Install 10.3.1 via Blitz method- Done...booting up,Blue LED ..
    4. Check to see if this works- I would say it half works...see vid for more info.
    Video might take some time to finish upload. Its 20 mins long or so and was shot in 1080p

    As this does not appear to work, I hope no-one will mind if I don't spend another hour on this!

    Many thanks for the suggestion.

    I did download the shrunken 1151 and I have Sachesi 2.0 RC. This got me wondering - as we can list the file contents of our phones on Sachesi, is there anything we might look for that really shouldn't be there? Something that if deleted might actually stop the dreaded blue LED settings wipe?

    Just a thought....

    This Approach worked for me & my Z10 LED issue. It was a RED
    blinking sequence (4x2) which drove me into a big 3 month odyssey.
    My Device did not have the "blue forget everything" issue after reboot,
    it had this red sequence after every reboot & device off. Only pulling
    the batterie 3 or 5 times could turn it on.
    But similar to your issue no leaks were working on my device. Only
    official 10.2.1.xxxx and 10.2.2.xxxx worked without the red sequence
    after shutdown. All 10.3.1.xxxx leaks gave me the red. I was very
    peeed off with this like you, all the specialists here were joking...

    I found out that an early 10.3.1.x leak i installed was a possible
    candidate for this issue. ( real sorry, i deleted these files, so no
    exact version... ) It was the only one i ever saw, which comes with an
    extra "system.signed" file which is flashed, too. I downloaded some
    autoloaders of this version and after extracting the files from them
    there were some, who did not include this file.
    "Nomally" there is only the full and BIG debrik.signed file and the
    radio.signed file bundled in an autoloader but not with this leak.
    This extra system.signed file was something like a memory swap
    partition, which was included for some devices to have a little more
    swap memory. Some BBs have 2GB and others 3GB area on the
    device. OS 10.3.1 uses 3GB to run, so i guess it was a workaround
    in an early programming state.
    ( Big thanks to Darcy and the other cool guy who discussed this here )

    So i tried everything like you ( most told me it is a hardware issue,
    but why were the officials 10.2.x.xxxx all running ? I know it could be
    possible, not all devices are real equal and BB uses for production
    chips and other components from different charges.
    ( and yes, Apple is a lot more dangerous, they have equal 5er Phones
    out with different wlan chipsets, so this is normal...)

    At one point i decided to (SIC v1.2) erase my device, but NO luck with
    that. I can now say SIC did NOT FULL ERASE your device, but to this
    one later !

    Now i wanted to get the difference between a cfp.exe NUKE and
    a ERASE ( CFP.EXE is included in SIC + a DOS batch script and... )
    A nuke -a kills everything like others mention here and should be
    enough for "dayly" use, but without overwriting ( erasing ) data.
    A "nuke" removes the partitions on the device ( these partition points
    are areas / device storage RANGES in wich the os.signed, radio.signed
    system.signed etc. are flashed at the device by an autoloader.
    These ranges are called "Secure Ranges" by CFP.exe and you could
    do many things in these secure ranges ( wipe, dump, inject etc. don't
    ask me why they called secure, think it's secure to erase... ),
    but outside these secure ranges ( before, between and after ) you
    CAN NOT wipe or whatever. These "before, middle, after" the ranges
    are locked for every LOW Level "user performance" ! Now guess,
    the workaround system.signed was flashed at an area and stays there.

    I looked at the SIC wiping batch script and found out, that SIC uses
    ONLY ONE wiping range for a device. The good thing here was, the
    makers of SIC have included many device specific ranges, because
    a Z10 and a Q range differ. But SIC only erases the 2nd secure area on
    a device, the 1st secure range is not erased by SIC/not included in their
    script. If you want to wipe your device by dos shell/ CFP.exe by hand,
    you can see, that there is a 1st secure area which you could wipe, too.
    I've done that by my own: ( Z10 !! )

    cfp.exe -u erase 0x00000830-0x0000481F "1st secure range"
    cfp.exe -u erase 0x00005820-0x0003A3FF "2nd secure range / SIC"

    You could copy and paste this into an empty file and rename it like
    erase.bat or erase.cmd. ( without stuff in quotes "" ! )

    Before starting point 0x00000830 ( 0x00000000-0x00000829 ) device is locked.
    Middle range between 1st and 2nd is locked. All after 2nd is locked.

    After this i made my own autoloader using Dary's Tool with genuine files
    from BB Production serves and the lightning terror has gone.

    P.S. to the SIC developer: After executing your SIC there is a plain text
    file also extracted with CFP.exe plus the batch script. This File has a
    plain text: RCHELICOPTERFTW and is used by the script. Why is there
    such a phrase used to our phones ??????? Some asked this at an old
    SIC thread here but no answer and you opened another SIC thread.

    Good Luck...

    Interesting BOLA. So it's wiping the first secure range that resolved it? If I'm reading right, you believe a file in the leak you loaded landed there, and caused your issue. This may be a solution, however many of these folks say they had blue light boot out of the box, FWIW.

    I'd still like to see at least one more brave soldier attempt my last suggestion, for confirmation.

    Appreciate the info, but might that just be the radio partition? And, might we be able to erase only the smaller partition, then run a radio autoloader?

    Hi RockStar,

    You could use ANY autoloader after:

    1. you got a latest CFP.EXE
    2. you made your own little Batch Script and run it:
    - open a texteditor or whatever
    - paste these lines into it and save it as a "erase.bat or erase.cmd" file or rename it.

    cfp.exe -u erase 0x00000830-0x0000481F
    cfp.exe -u erase 0x00005820-0x0003A3FF

    3. run the script in the same directory as cfp.exe !

    Hi BigBadWolf,

    This is exact what worked, erasing the 1st secure range,
    SIC did not, but they released a new version an hour ago...
    i will see.

    Devils, thank you !

    This was not the Radio partition. It was a system.signed ( partition ).
    No Debrik, no Radio, no Core OS. It was little smaller than radio image. I can't remember, guess ca. 12MB or so, radio is for Z10 around 25MB. ( The radio size i know, i accidentally downloaded
    a Z30 radio in the past and wondered why it was 50MB ).
