Re: Xperia Play keeps shutting off and turning back on randomly after the latest update?

it will re-install the software with that fixing certain bugs, also do you have android 2.3.3 or 2.3.4?

settings -> about phone -> android version and build number

either or

Make sure you backup everything using the Backup & Restore app

if you need the app you can use this link instead to download the apk

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=I5CJUPJV

How to install it

You need to

go to settings -> applications -> check unknown sources

download IO File Manager

https://market.android.com/details?id=org.openintents.filemanager&feature=search_result

download the backup & restore app, transfer it to your SD card, use OI file manager to find it -> tap on it -> install it

Contacts

just to play it safe sync your contacts w/ google if you haven't already

open your phonebook

press MENU button -> tap on Send Contacts -> select all -> send it to your email
on your computer
-> download the file -> go to your gmail -> click on contacts -> click on more actions -> on the drop down menu click on "import" -> choose the file -> and click import
Apps

Don't worry so much about backing up your apps

on your computer go to

market.android.com -> log in -> click on My Library -> and send all your apps to your phone

market my library.JPGmarket my library 02.JPGmarket my library 03.JPGmarket my library 04.JPG

SMS/MMS

if you don't want to use the backup & restore app then

Install "backup SMS" to back up your SMS and MMS to your Gmail

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.zegoggles.smssync&feature=search_result

or your SMS use

"backup & restore SMS"

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&feature=search_result

or for your MMS use "Save MMS"

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.schwimmer.android.mmsextract&feature=search_result

Call Logs

And for call logs this is great

if 2.3.4 it's not available on your network/country and you don't want to wait, this is how you can manually update your phone
