Re: Yellow Star icon on homepage

To remove yellow star icon Goto your text message icon:

- Open BB menu

- Goto view folders

- Goto new apps and open folder Delete the Battery Optimiser App The yellow star icon wil have gone.

It's really an app trying to get you to purchase it.  Not sure how RIM marketing thought of this but i dont want it.

Yellow Star icon SOLVED!

I read through all of the messages and managed to make my star go away. Here was my method.

 

Go to your Black Berry App (App World) - then go to MY WORLD.

 

Make sure the top is set to INSTALL apps.

 

Click each app and scroll down on it's page until you can see who made that application.

 

Any games or apps that are made by Application For Black Berry (AFBB) may be causing the problem.

 

Mine was a game called Helicopter. I deleted/uninstalled the game Helicopter. My phone prompted me for a reboot. Reboot now.

 

Then when it finished, my phone was still acting funny and froze, I had to pull out the battery. Afterwards, it worked better but is still acting frozen, but THE STAR IS GONE. Good luck!
