Mobile Prospector will not delete, only archive

I have searched and searched these message boards and cannot find an answer anywhere. I downloaded Mobile Prospector from BB AppWorld and now I simply do not want it anymore. I have tried to delete it multiple times from BB AppWorld, the device itself and the desktop manager. No matter what I do, it will only archive the application. It will not delete. I don't want this application at all...EVER. How to I get rid of it and the archive?

Re: Mobile Prospector will not delete, only archive

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

What I have done is first delete it on the BB

 

  • Homescreen > Options > Advanced Options > Applications > highlight > BBKey > delete

 

which resulted in the app showing as archived. Then I went into AppWorld > MyWorld and highlighted the app, then BBKey > Delete wiped it out for good.

 

Hopefully that'll work for you!

Re: Mobile Prospector will not delete, only archive

Thanks for the response! I had done that (more than once) and it did not work. I did get it removed using JLCommander, but I don't think it should have to be that hard! I wonder if it is just that app or if all of them do that.

Re: Mobile Prospector will not delete, only archive

Sorry - have found it!

 

so when i did what was suggested, the app i wanted to delete wasn't there (it's the Weather Channel App) - but it still shows up in my downloads folder with a green arrow in the corner (archived?) unless I select to 'hide' it.  Where has it been archived to? how can i get rid of it for good?

As I discussed above, it is a two step process. First via the device application list, then via AppWorld/MyWorld. From what you describe, it sounds like you've done the first part (resulting in the icon showing archived). Now you need to do the second part.

Hi and Welcome to the forums!

 

As discussed above, did you do both steps? What, exactly, did you try and what, exactly, happened? Sorry, but "it didn't work" tells us nothing -- details are needed from you since 100% of our information about your situation comes from your posted data.

 

BTW -- Let's see if we can get you taken care of without the use of JL_CMDER.

 

Cheers.

Re: Mobile Prospector will not delete, only archive

After experiencing a similar issue with some of my 'try it' apps, I've had success by reinstalling the archived app and then deleting it... perhaps you may want to give that a whirl!

 

cheers,

 

peace and love
