RIM releases new device diagnostic for self-testing BlackBerry hardware

22 Comments

RIM has just released a new Knowledge Base article detailing how to use an on-device self-diagnostic tool to test hardware issues on your BlackBerry. The video above is from our friends at BlackBerryNews using the self-diagnostic tool (on a simulator, but still) to test vibration functionality. Pretty cool, huh?

It appears as though this BlackBerry self-diagnostic works on all OS 4.2 devices and higher, including 4.3, 4.5 and 4.6. Besides the vibration function, bluetooth, audio, GPS, keyboard, trackball, LED and screen colour can all be tested.
