Default App World Bug...

Please Login to Remove!


I installed App World and then tried out an application. I then went to delete the application and it just changed it for a red icon saying app had been archived and I could just click to reinstall it!

Didn't want that, so deleted the Icon... It then says that if you want the app back, you have to reinstall it!

Fine, thats what I wanted, clean BB without that app!

However, once I did that, App World seemed to be deleted too... When I reinstalled App World, the other app also came back!

Anyone else had this weird behaviour?

This is normal... App world houses the other app. To delete it, go into app world and delete it from there. Don't delete app world...

This seems to be a known glitch that's been talked about here. After you reinstall app world (which I've had to do a number of times), go into "My App World" and do the following: hold down the 'alt' key and press the 'R', then 'S', then 'T' keys. It'll exit app world, then just go back and in and things should be all cleaned up for you. Plus you'll gain back some memory.
