    I got the 2.1 update a few weeks ago and everything seems to be working fine. After a few days, browser + Blaq crashed, and I had to do a 3-hand reboot. I had to do it 4 times in just a week. Then after several days again, the same issue happened. Yesterday, after the reboot, Blaq immediately crashes. I decided to do a security wipe today and I'm just backing up my files.

    Anyone knows why this is happening and how can I prevent and solve it? Thanks a lot!

    Hard to tell what could be causing it with so few info on the issue, but you're doing it right so far.

    Backup, wipe, reload.

    PS: Do you need an extra hand? I can do it with just two (and call it a 3finger reboot)!

    And welcome to the forums.

    Oh yeah, sorry for the mistake haha it should be 3-finger instead

    anyway, the security wipe did the trick but i'm going to monitor my PB this week, i did not bother to restore my application data from the backups, only the media. so i'll see if the apps are contributing to the issue. by the way, the hanging happens when the battery is below 10%, but yesterday was different, the battery was > 50%.

    Same thing is starting to happen to me as well. Everything was working fine, and suddenly, the PB hangs a lot no matter what I do. Takes me 30secs to start the wifi connection, takes me as long to open the browser, when it doesn't crash. Wanted to check my mail, had to launch it 3 times before it opened. I have to click and click and re-click on the icons to launch apps now...
    I wouldn't want to have to wipe everything and start anew, it's a 64GB PB, takes forever to backup, will take as long and maybe more to restore... And I might just restore the same problem as well...
    Getting pissed off now!

    i suggest that you do a security wipe too. seems that my pb is snappy again after restoring my media files and re-installing 10% of my apps.
    i don't know how the system works but i highly suspect that the update conflicts with some files that make pb crashes. the 3-finger reboot does not help at all though it refreshes the pb's memory.

    But what's the point, if it's an app that's causing the problem after a few days with the PB? I'll restore everything and will get the same problem again.

    I was having issues with the browser going poof and had a couple lockups. I did a wipe and shut it off before doing the setup then I did a debrick. I had no apps before and no apps yet. I have had a couple browser poofs since but most of the time it's working pretty good.

    Very weird : the only thing I updated since the OS update was... Fantasy Islands. The stutter and hangings started then, I think. I just uninstalled it and the PB seems fast again, the browser hasn't crashed.
    Will keep you posted.
