Re: How do you download an older version for App World

JSanders, I was able to solve the problem!  I had to go to the applications menu and uninstall App World from there, not simply delete it from the icon.  Then I was able to download the older version through the santo link you sent.  And it worked like a charm!  Now my other apps are working fine again.  Thank you thank you thank you!!! :smileyhappy:

Great, that is the correct place to delete AppWorld from.

Re: How do you download an older version for App World

Hi JSanders...

Trust u r well..

I need more of your expert assistance please:

I'm going thru this happily ever after getting my BB App world to work again thanks to yo expert advise...but I now encounter receiving messages which are forcing me to download the latest version of BB Appworld which was the problem causer in the first place.

These prompts won't let u not choose the option. You either have to upgrade or cancel. If u cancel, your entire App world browser closes and you can't do anything from there anymore.

Do you have a solution?

Thanks J and much appreciated as always...

Kind regards

You are the chosen of God in this world.

Be blessed always...

Re: How do you download an older version for App World

Good question.

 

I wonder what would happen if you did upgrade, and you find this new version now DOES indeed work?

 

If not, come back here and download the old version again.

 

Worth a try.

Re: How do you download an older version for App World

You should choose to replace.

 

  • Delete the other first if you want, from Options > Advanced > Applications.
  • Then, Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot.
  • Now reinstall from the earlier link.
