Re: Blackberry app world

Hello,

 

Knowing nothing more than what your post states (which requires some significant assumptions), please try this sequence:

1) Remove AppWorld from your BB

  • KB10040 How to view or remove installed applications on a BlackBerry smartphone
  • If it requests that you reboot the BB, do so

2) Do a Batt-Pull reboot (power on, remove battery, wait, insert battery, wait), even if redundant to the one you did in step 1.

3) Install (on your BB) a fresh copy of AppWorld

4) Do another Batt-Pull reboot

5) See if it now works.

 

If the icon remains hidden, please check that you have "Show All" active and that you dig into every homescreen folder and subfolder. Also be sure you don't have a custom theme running that may be hiding it. Also review these KBs:

  • KB29422 BlackBerry App World icon is missing after upgrading to BlackBerry App World 4.0.0.63 to 4.0.0.65
  • KB27043 BlackBerry App World icon is missing after upgrading BlackBerry App World application
  • KB22944 BlackBerry App World icon disappears from the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone after an update
