Talking Replacing Blackberry Maps on OS 6 after upgrade

Please Login to Remove!

Recently I upgraded my 9700 to OS6 and found the icon for Blackberry Maps was missing. Rim had previously suggested using a downloaded program call a ribbon.lbs to replace the Icon. The error message suggests the application is not supported on any BB using OS6. Rim does not suggest an alternative in its message. Doing some further research I found that Rim does support replacing BB Maps on OS 6 but depending on the original Theme it may not display. ATT is one that does not allow Rims maps.
The simple fix is to download the entire app again and it will now show. If you have ATT themes it will still require a download of a different non ATT theme to allow it to display.

Go to this link from the BB browser and follow the instructions
