ROM Error?
« on: May 03, 2013, 09:41:21 pm »
So my friend's calc threw a ROM Error screen today (from what I could tell, when he launched an app). Is this a one-time thing or what? He asked me to fix it and I have it in front of me. Also, he damaged the screen, but I don't think this has anything to do with the problem... Ideas?

Well, your description had too many details, so could you please retype the general gist of the problem :)

ROM error suggests that the OS is corrupted. I recommend backing up all data, and then using the Reset All Memory function. Then, resend the OS. If you're really sophisticated, reflash the boot sector(s), though it's probably unnecessary. This should ensure every sector (except the certificate) is not corrupted.
