Default Deleting an application (PicoNews)

Please Login to Remove!

I tested out Piconews ( http://www.piconews.com ) and I'd like to remove it. I did an over the air install of the application onto my 7130e and when I go to remove it via Options / Advanced / Applications it isn't listed. Any way to remove something from the device which isn't listed? The application has it's icon on my main menu and it still functions but it isn't listed where I can remove it.

Hey Geek -

Once you go into Applications, click the wheel and select Modules. See if you can locate it there and delete it...

Modules showed PicoNews and PicoNews_lib. I deleted PicoNews, though the BB indicated it was "in use" though it's not running as an active app as far as I can tell. Then it restarted the device and PicoNews was no longer an icon on the main page.

I looked in modules again and there's still a listing for PicoNews_lib which I deleted, it said it was "in use", then a reset and things look good.

THANKS!!!

After a few days waiting for a response, I did receive this from the support folks at PicoNews. I figured it was appropriate to post their response here in case others run into the same thing...

There is an other way to remove applications not listed in the Options screen:
- Install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager if not already done
- plug your BlackBerry in
- copy the JavaLoader.exe file (see link below) in a folder easily accessible
(C: for example)
- Start a command prompt (Start Menu / Run... / enter "cmd")
- Go to the folder where you put JavaLoader.exe ("cd \" if you choose C
- test the connection by typing "JavaLoader.exe -u dir" without the quotes and pressing enter. You should get a long list of installed BlackBerry modules. This list should contain PicoNews and PicoNews_lib.
- Type "JavaLoader.exe -u erase -f PicoNews" and "JavaLoader.exe -u erase -f PicoNews_lib".
- You should fully reboot your BlackBerry to make sure Piconews is completely uninstalled (by typing alt + maj + del, or by stopping the device and removing the battery)

This JavaLoader.exe file comes from the BlackBerry development environment (called JDE). You can download the full JDE for your OS version (4.1) on www.blackberry.com website if you prefer not to use the JavaLoader.exe we provide here :

http://www.piconews.com/files/JavaLoader.exe

During our tests, PicoNews never disappeared from the applications list, and this is really not our intent to prevent you from uninstalling it. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
