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

Hi JSanders

I had upgraded my appworld to version 3.1.4.25 which I think is the latest on the BB website. Since then I have been unable to log in or do anything with app world.

I have tried your prescribed method and the software is installed but only visible in the applications list.

From this point on, I don't have any way of moving forward and you have been the closest I have ever gotten to getting it fixed.

Please advise where you can...

Much appreciated.

Ok.

 

Clear the BlackBerry browser cache by following KB03865 , the reboot again and reload AppWorld again.

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

I've tried all of these with no results, I've even reformated the whole phone. All that did was take away all the apps I already had before I lost my app world icon. Is there a way to reload my os possibly? Very frustrated

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

You will need to use BBSAK or JL_Cmder to wipe the device and subsequently load the OS to the device. Follow the instructions here:
http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.php/How_do_I_wipe_the_BlackBerry_using_Jl_Cmder%3F
For BBSAK, here is the link: http://bbsak.org/

If JL_Cmder does not work, follow this instructional:

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

Is there anyway to do it from my phone, and not using a pc internet connection?

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

* i'm not sure if it works for you, i tried to figure out a way based on JSanders help earlier.

* i'm sure you're on OS6?

* go to Options > Device > Application Management

* type in "app", and delete BlackBerry App World from here. delete every app world you find in here (click menu, and choose Delete)

* keep the phone on, remove battery, go for some coffee or something, i usually leave the battery out for like 25 mins. i think there's a big different between putting the battery right back on and leaving it 25 mins. but it runs smoother after so yeah i do the 25 mins this time.

* after 25 mins and your blackberry restarts, open its browser, type this line in:

http://santo.asia/repository/bb-file/BlackBerryAppWorld.3.0.1.29.OS6/AppWorld.jad

 

i figured that the same line of JSanders won't work with OS6. so instead of putting OS5 in there, you have to put OS6. 

it'll install the working app world on your phone. even though it'll leave some annoying messages asking you to upgrade, but i didn't upgrade.

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

Hi JSanders and giselepham...

I have tried both your methods of clearing the cache and the method above from giselepham and both have not worked...

This is very frustrating...

Does anyone have a sure solution??? :-(

Yes. I've tried them all. No success. Would you please tell me the instructions again how I should do it. Has anyone else tried this with no success?

You need the version for OS6.

 

See the instructions in the SECOND post in this thread.

Using your BlackBerry browser, click on the link to the OS6 version.
