Default Adding New Apps

Please Login to Remove!

Heres my situation:

Whenever I add a new app to my BlackBerry 7100g, it install fine, it works fine.


If I go to add another app a few days later, the BlackBerry always says:

Unrecognized Apps that will be removed:

(The app i previously installed)

So basically, whenever i add a new app, it always removes anything I installed prior first.

This is frustrating, anyone have this problem, workaround?

It's been a while since this was answered, but it is searchable...


Easiest fix is to find a common place to put the .cod and .alx files for the apps you want installed. I use the loader files directory. Copy all your apps into that.

What happens is you install an app, either OTA or manually point it to the app directory. Then go to install a new app, but the DM doesn't recognize the previous app because the install files aren't linked anymore. Since it doesn't know what it is it removes it.
