blackberry app world not showing up!

Hi I have a blackberry bold 9780, a few months ago when I received this phone from my parents it had a blackberry app world update. Ever since I tried updating it the blackberry app world is showing up in my applications management but not on my actual blackberry (if that makes sense). I have tried unistalling and reinstalling, taking battery out to reset. Is there anything I can do to get it back as its starting to annoy me now

Hi x_cakemaker_x

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

If you device OS is prior to 6.0.0.706 then try Updating your device software or Download BlackBerry World version 4.0.0.55 which is the best workaround now available for BlackBerry  World also uninstall app world from Options > Device > Application Management > Locate and delete BlackBerry  World , then perform another Battery pull restart.

 

Finally from your BlackBerry Browser browse to http://mobileapps.blackberry.com/devicesoftware/entry.do?code=appworld3 to download version 4.0.0.55 . In addition check this Knowledge Base for further help :

Re: blackberry app world not showing up!

Hi,
When I try download the blackberry app world 4.0.0.55 it says
Error: Invalid manifest or application descriptor.
The "MIDlet-Name" attribute is missing.
Do you know what this means?
Thanks :smileyhappy:

Hi

First uninstall BlackBerry world from Options > Device > Application Management > delete BlackBerry world from there , then reboot your device by removing the battery while your device is powered on .

After reboot go through the above link to download version 4.0.0.55
