Reinstall App World

I have deleted App World on my Torch 9800 as it was always hanging hoping that I will be able to install it. When I try to reinstall I get the following error message:


Invalid manifest or app descriptor. The MIDlet-Name is missing. PLEASE HELP

Re: Reinstall App World

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. A reboot in this manner is prescribed for most glitches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.


Now, using your BlackBerry browser, go to www.blackberry.com/appworld


and reinstall.
