| | Remove Themes - Boost 8330 CDMA
Please Login to Remove!
I've read some articles about removing preloaded themes. I follwed these steps exactly:
current OS installed on your PC - check
Do a complete backup of your device - check
When the backup is complete, close the Desktop Manager and unplug your BB.
Delete the vendor.xml file from your PC -done
go to Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\xxx\Java on your PC
( many claim to not see the shared folder, I didn't either, until I installed the BB OS software to my pc, after that I had no problems finding the files)
I chose to remove:
all files prefaced with net_rim_vad_
Connect your device to your PC and run the Application Loader to complete the changes.
The themes were not removed, the voice dialing was not removed. Only thing that was removed is the password keeper, which can be done from the Applications section of the DM without needing all these extra steps.
Does anyone know definitively if it is possible to remove themes/vad from the BB 8330 CDMA thru Boost? And if so, would anyone be willing to tell me where I went wrong?
Also, since I've done this, my DM wont recognize my device. I have tried going to Control Panel > System > Device Manager on your PC and delete you Blackberry Device. Then reconnecting it - didn't work. Also uninstalled DM and reinstalled it, and it still wont recognize my device. I would be very happy just to have this problem fixed, nevermind the main issue.
