iPhone Bluescreen of Death: App Installs and Update problems

According to IntoMobile there is something called “Apple Logo Screen of Death” also known as “Bluescreen of Death” (BOD) after iPhone application installations and updates.

iPhone problems after problems seem to be looking, what with “The Kill Switch” and lagging problems and now this, apparently there are reports coming in that iPhone’s and indeed iPhone 3Gs that are running on the 2.0 OS and iPhone 2.0.1 OS are having serious problems of crashing after iPhone application installation and updates which is a worry, the “Apple Logo Screen of Death” is rumoured to be random and may need an iPhone restore process to fix it.

We want to know if your iPhone has crashed and if you have come across the iPhone Bluescreen of Death, have you had to put the iPhone back to restore mode and has it bricked you iPhone?

If you do have problems you will need to take these steps:

1. Connect it to iTunes.
2. Hold down the Power/Sleep button simultaneously with the Home button.
3. Keep both buttons pressed down until your iPhone powers off.
4. When your iPhone turns off, release the Power/Sleep button, but keep the Home button depressed until iTunes detects the iPhone.
5. Once iTunes detects your iPhone in restore mode, hit the “Restore” button to get your crashed out iPhone back to working order.
