    1.My classic started to have issues lately,shutting down suddenly with battery showing 60% and other problems.I have decided to make a fresh soft install but its my first time.
    Can anyone show me a step by step way for this?
    I tried to find the way by reading the new leaked OS10 version on forum but didnt find an autoloader for Classic SQC100-1.
    2.I have managed to save my contacts to a vcf file and then exported to gmail.How can i bring them back to classic after fresh install?

    Thank you!

    1) The Classic uses the same autoloader as the Z30, so any autoloader marked Z30 will work. The (latest) autoloaders are here: https://mega.nz/#F!bQNCFCDZ!xFYy9V_nAM2PiaN_ZRFd1A
    2) Set up the Gmail account in BB Hub once you've updated.

    the story continues..in a not a good way...So after all you read it above,things are not going well.After few days the battery started to discharge and charge very fast but working a good ammount of time even at 0% ....wow.After 1 week i have decided to replace the battery with a new one.Bought today from a local store,i hope a new one,at least that way was advertised put it in my classic and after power on,batt status showed 100% and in seconds dropped to 20% and then fast to zero %,checked in BBVE and health shows a red dot the same way as the old battery.
    Now the phone is on charge but i see the same fast charge like before,in 15 minutes goes to 100% allready
    Where is the problem?

    I had the same problem, this is perhaps a solution (it worked for me). Use your phone until it dies completely (even if the battery shows 0% it should still run). After your phone dies plug it in and let it charge without using it until the indicator is green (best done at night before going to sleep so you won't / don't need your phone). Keep an eye on your battery status either via bbve or an app called "battery charger". You may need to do this a few times before you see full results. If there are any other questions or I am not being clear fell free to post below or pm me.

    thank you for fast answear,maybe i will try this though i understand that doing that way can damage the battery.
    Anyway,the big question is why is this happening with a new battery?

    Sometimes a new battery needs to reset itself you can try to reloaded to os using an auto loader first if that doesn't work try what I mentioned.

    BBVE health status turned RED again,what it can be a software error or the new battery its not ...new??Also i have made some screens with different battery apps that shows different statements:who lies and who tells the true ?Classic autoloader-img_20171217_100854.pngClassic autoloader-img_20171217_100905.pngClassic autoloader-img_20171217_100923.pngClassic autoloader-img_20171217_100940.png

    Next time you charge your phone, watch (if possible) to see if it charges properly. If it jumps from 70% to full it's not charging properly and try what I mentioned. If it's charging properly you may have another problem and you might need to reinstall the software.

    Keep an eye on the status of your battery. If you see after a charge it goes down in strength (or the health goes down to yellow in bbve) let the phone go dead again as you did. If the health improves then your good to go.

    It seems you may have a problem with either the charging sensor or your charger are you using your original charger? Perhaps try a different charger and see if it makes a difference.
