Question Curve 8320 using Opera Mini 5 Beta getting Firewall Errors

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB 8320 with ATT Wireless. Using my BB Browser I was able to download and install Opera Mini 5 Beta. However when I get the following error when opening the browser:

The application operette $2dhifi has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy

I've tried removing and re-installing and I've also tried using Opera Mini ver. 4 with the same results.

This is my personal BB however I do sync it with BBDM on my companies laptop for my contacts and calendar info, NOT for company email.

I would like to get this working and have researched a few threads indicating my company IT policy getting pushed to my BBs firewall settings and changing. I tried disabling the firewall but cannot because It has a small red lock on it preventing any changes.

Any help is appreciated.

If you like to keep your job, your stuck without opera... If you don't care about your job, you can always remove the policy... Just remember that if you remove it, there's a good chance you won't have money to bring home....

So it's not on your company's BES? Did you install DM at work with the BES option? That may be why you have an IT policy on your BB.

Thumbs up Solved!!! Curve 8320 using Opera Mini 5 Beta getting Firewall Errors

I was able to finally get this working!!! Here's what I did...

Using JL Cmder ...sorry can't post link yet so you'll need to do a search for it.

I Made sure BB Desktop Manager (BBDM) was installed and on the latest version:

1. Connected and backed Up my 8320 using BBDM.
2. Downloaded JL_Cmder.
3. Extracted executable and ran it...it installed an exe on my Desktop.
4. Double-click on the exe and followed the prompts.
5. Selected option (5) "Resettofactory". It removed the IT Policy from the device and wiped all personal data while leaving the OS installed.
6. After the device rebooted, I reconnected and restored my backup from BBDM.

After that, Opera Mini 5 and a few other Apps started working as designed with no IT policy errors.

As an additional benefit:

Previously I was unable to get my 8320 to Sync with BBDM using my bluetooth connection. After I did these steps It worked! BBDM found my 8320 and propted for me to connect to it. I'm thinking it must have been some king of firewall /IT issue preventing a proper bluetooth connection.

Sweet!!!
