Default Uninstall hidden application

Please Login to Remove!

Hey there,

our carrier shipped the BBs with a "Performance Enhancement Patch" which is in fact an interception software. This application does not show up in the application list but in the modules with the name "Registration". Whenever I try to delete "Registration" from the modules I get the error message that "Registration is used by Registration".

Is there any 3rd part app or way where I can delete the application or at least disable the autostart of this application?

thanks ldr,
So it didnt re-install when you connected your essentially new factory unit back to etisalat data service. I didnt install it but a few friends did and their batteries wont even last a day!! Not to mention our privacy issues.

burnzz,
Not my work but taken from another board hope it helps.


Download JL_Cmder JL_Cmder Javaloader Utility
Connect the handheld to your computer by USB
Go to the folder where Javaloader.exe is installed (e.g. CProgram Files\JL_Cmder)
Type the following command:
javaloader -u erase -f Registration.cod

Restart your handheld. And you're done. If your handheld is using a password you can type it like this:
javaloader -u -wPasswordHere -f Registration.cod

I just put this in another spot, but, I'll put it here too for BES admins who may read this:

I have confirmed with RIM that ETISALAT did in fact send suspicious code to many Middle Eastern devices. The name of the application is
"Registration" or
"Registration;Registration:Etisalat3Registrati onEt isalat network upgrade for Blackberry service. Please download to ensure continous service quality.4.9100Etisalat " or
"Registration4.9100191406 "
======
You can determine if the application has been installed by an end user by querying the table dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt and the field Data for:
Like '%registration%' <-meaning contains "registration"
You will need to link the table to the dbo_UserConfig table in order to determine the user's Display Name or identifying information. The ID fields are different, use the dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt.UserConfigId joined to the dbo_UserConfig.ID field and you should be able to get a list of users who have installed the application to their devices.
=======
Here is my query:
-
SELECT dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt.Data, dbo_UserConfig.DisplayName, dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt.UserConfigId, dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt.Id, dbo_UserConfig.Id

FROM HOUBLAK301 INNER JOIN dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt ON dbo_UserConfig.Id = dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt.UserConfigId

WHERE (((dbo_SyncDeviceMgmt.Data) Like '%registration%'));

Wow. Real spyware. But as is usual, the user has to specifically allow it. In this case, the advice about not installing software from unknown sources doesn't apply though because one would expect their carrier to be a known/trusted source.
