Default Uncaught exception: java.lang.Error

Please Login to Remove!

I installed a Bloomberg app that I couldn't use (required a BES) and so uninstalled using Options/Applications/Delete. (Blackberry 7230)

Since then I get "Uncaught exception: java.lang.Error" whenever I receive a call or an SMS. Also, audible alerts no longer work.

Bloomberg, of course, has no clue.

I just downloaded and installed v4.0 software and the Service Pack. Didn't help.

Any ideas how to rectify this error? I can't find any reference to it through RIM.

Thanks, RJH

Removing the latest Berry411 (3.06) got rid of the message for me.

Issue continues to exist with Berry 411 (3.10) if language modules are removed via Application Loader. This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

I believe that in the case of Berry411, the application expects certain language modules to exist. When those modules are removed, Berry411 throws an exception when attempting to link to them. Just a thought. In any event, an email in the direction of [email address] repoting on suspect stack traces is in order.

Does anyone understand how to eliminate the dependency on language modules? In writing Berry411, I didn't do anything explicit to require specific language modules.

Please try ALT-lglg and report the results there.

I do believe Adam Lau reported that reinstalling the tasks application resolved the error.

Correct. Frustration with the error dialog led me to a series of native and third-party app deinstalls/reinstalls. The culprit ended up being the native Tasks application. Reinstalling Tasks resolved the throwing of the error dialog. YMMV.

I downloaded and installed Lexspell, a small well received spellchecker program for the native Blackberry email program. Unfortunately, I got an "uncaught exception:java.lang.Error" after installation. Tried removing the batter for a hard re-start but this did nothing. If I remove the Lexspell program, then the error message leaves as well. I have emailed Beiks who produces this product. Theya re looking in to the issue but suggest that it has to do with Blackberry and limited resources. I have friends who experienced the same error message after installing e-Spell. Any suggestions on where i might turn next or how I migth fix it? What does this message mean to the average Blackbery user anyway? Thanks

I just answered that in LexSpell's thread at pinstack where you had posted as well (and no, I do not work for pinstack).

Simply put, I believe this has to do with required system resources. In LexSpell's case they are admittedly large, because LexSpell needs instant access to all of its database in order to do reasonably fast proofing.

Same exception may actually even show in applications that have nothing to do with it, as someone above describes. I.e. your phone or messages application starts crashing when the problem actually is another application eating up all available resources.

I do not think there is a silver bullet to this problem.

if you want your BlackBerry to be rock stable, do not install anything on it (reportedly, that's what Steve Jobs is about to do with the iPhone).

if you want it to break in 24 hours, start installing any applicaiton that comes your way.

Somewhere in-between is the balance of productivity and reliability that everyone needs to find for themselves.

Generally, the balance line moves to your benefit every time RIM comes up with a new release of the OS.
From where I stand, they are doing reasonably good job improving it.

You need to search this forum for JL_cmder
It is a small program that resides on your desktop and will wipe the device. It works.

Default Pearl java.lang.NullPointer Error

I just recently got the Pearl from Cingular. Occassionally, when I get a call, I get an error that says, "uncaught exception: java.lang.NullPointer," as well. I use a Mac with OS X, so I do not know how to reinstall software. I've installed only two new programs on my Pearl: Google Maps and a link to Fidelity investments. Could anyone help me with resolving this issue? I've not found a fix yet, and I've searched the forums a bit. Thank you!

Null pointer errors are apparently to do with address book. Use application loader to clear and then reinstate

Also above error displays when Namimail version and BlackBerry OS version mismatch occurs. For OS 4.1x, Namimail 1.2x version needs to be installed. (Namimail v.1.1x is for OS 4.0x). Just keep trying higher version till you get one that works

Added November 7th 2007:
With the latest version of Namimail 2.2.1 we can use the 4.2 firmware and this combination seems to eliminate errors of this sort.

I had to regress my OS back to 4.1 to resolve this. You have to deinstall desktop manager download a 4.1. firmware executable and then install and with device connected should get wizard that takes you through install process.

Added: November 7th 2007:
Believe this error has a lot to do with having insufficient rights to install or deinstall software. Need to have full rights to install on Blackberry and then when 4.2 is loaded it generally resolves these kinds of issues.

Having the same issues, but I cannot get rid of the pop up box consequently I have no access to the menu structure. I have removed Bloomberg using the Desktop manager but have not other access.

How to I go back to a previous version of the OS? On the Blackberry site the two available handheld software versions are 2.6 and 2.7a.

This suddenly happened, been running fine for months with only Bloomberg APP installed.

Thanks.
