Appworld uncaught exception

After accepting a recent upgrade, Blackberry Appworld now hangs when I try to close it and generates this error message after a while:


Uncaught exception:


net_rim_bb_appworld(501) is

not responding; process



Is there something I can do to fix it, or provide more information so the app can be fixed?

Re: Appworld uncaught exception

Try a Battery pull please, with the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery 15 seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot device. This will clear all cache like rebooting a PC.

then after boot up, open app world and hold down the alt key and type in RST

wait 2 minutes and try to access App World again
