hey , i deleted the bb maps by mistake and when trying to download it i have 2 options 1 is when RIM sends me a download link which then downloads an "lbs_ribbon" which is 10 Kb only! and doesnt really do anything besides being added to the app list but the application it self is no show.
the second choice on the official website tells me to connect the phone and press next and then gives me an "unspecified error has occurred"
another thing i ve tried is downloading bb maps 1.2 zip file on my pc and adding the alx file on the app loader on desktop manager which then successfully installs the maps but on running i get an error" error starting net_rim_lbs:class 'net.rim.device.apps.api.quickcontact.QuickContact
i am on a carrier called Etisalat egypt ..my data plan is working and unlimited and they are not blocking the maps like AT&T (as it was working perfect right before i delete it)
i am using a Bold 9000
cryptographic kernel v18.104.22.168a
3rd party apps installed :
Bebuzz,facebook,windows live messenger.
any help would be more than appreciated

First locate your carrier and the OS file you wish to use, identical to that loaded to your device now.
Make certain Desktop Manager is closed on your PC.
1. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.
4. Choose in the applicaitons list your BlackBerry Maps to install, and follow the prompts to complete the installation.

J, I downloaded the OS from the website you provided for my storm 9530 which was version 5.0.0. My phone says I have version 22.214.171.1249 currently installed. Do you have any idea where I might be able to find the 126.96.36.1999? I'm currently a verizon customer if that makes any difference. Thanks so much for your help!
