Deleted sys.android.bar accidentally while side-loading android apps

I deleted sys.android.bar accidentally while side-loading android apps. How can I get it back?

Is there a way to get the bar file and reload it? I did try the older version that is floating around and it does not work.


I looked at the directions for reloading the OS  here (http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB33480), but it seems your devie has to be non-functioning for that to work, and mine does load the OS. It is just android apps that do not work.


Also I own a MAC so in trying the KB article above I tried to use windows in a VM but it did not detect the device until it was completely booted.

Please use plain text.

Re: Deleted sys.android.bar accidentally while side-loading android apps

I have also done this on my Playbook some time ago, and eventually found a way to solve it. But to my regret, I can't remember how I fixed it :-(

Maybe you could just try to reset your device?

A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)
