Thumbs down App Loader won't remove old programs

Please Login to Remove!

My apploader (4.2.2) will not remove program listings when updates are done via direct download (rather than thru the Desktop Manager) to the BB8703e (Verizon OS 4.2). Any thoughts on how to remove the unwanted listings? Thanks 73

Hi. What are these unwanted program listings that you like to remove?

You should be able to delete them directly from the device by going to Options >Advanced Options >Applications.

Unhappy Re: Apploader Problem

The programs involved are programs that were updated by OTA download. No programs installed through the desktop manager exhibit this problem; just ones that were updated OTA. The entries in Advanced Options/applications show only the current version, so that approach won't work. I believe that there has to be a file in the desktop manager that needs to be edited that contains the current list of installed programs. 73

You are not talking about left behind modules (not deleted when the app was deleted), are you?

Back up your data and reload the OS. It will remove all the program that you don't need and update the OS at the same time. The process dont' take that long.

Lightbulb No Gain No Pain

CCK01: So far, your solution is the only one that has a chance of working. I can't remove apps that don't show up in Advanced /options, and the Desktop Manager App Loader doesn't remove the old versions when OTA downloads are done. Your solution would absolutely work, but, wow, what a pain. I suppose if I really find this too annoying to deal with, I will do it, but, in light of todays announcement of the 9000 by RIM, I may just wait until it becomes available and switch.

Everyone else, thanks for the suggestions. It is not often I ask for help, but I really appreciate it when everyone gives it a stab. 73

You can use javaloader in a command prompt to remove modules from the device. Javaloader can be foind in my sig.

John: Thanks. I like this idea better than wiping everything. 73
