Default Removing applications - Rim signed

Please Login to Remove!

We have pushed out several applications OTA. This has worked flawlessly. Now comes the task of removing the app OTA. No problem, you do some searching through the documentation and it is as simple as going into the Application Control Policy and change the disposition to Dissallow. Sounds simple enough. Well after testing and testing and testing and then banging my head against the wall I came up with some very interesting finding. Some apps this works like a charm and others it plain doesn't work. Long story short this will work on applications that aren't signed by RIM. go figure. It would be nice if there was an * in there documentation telling you that. So now you are asking yourself how do I tell if the application is signed by RIM? Very easy. Go into options- advanced options - applications - then modules. Find the module that pertains to your app and open it.

If it is signed by "3" then it is a RIM signed module and will not be removed using the ACP.

So my question is this..... Is there a way to edit/remove the 3????

Just guessing, I suspect you will get a better, more informed response in the BB Admin section of the forum. If one of the mods agree with me, I suspect they will move. (And they hate double posting!)
