First of all take complete backup of your device..!!


Now on device press Menu (BB Key) > Options > Type Application and select app managemnet tab...!!


Select BB App World and BBM one by one and delete both the apps..!!


Now connect your device with PC using USB chord..!!


And On PC Go to


C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader


Double click on loader.exe and follow the procedure, in between you will get details to check or un check apps, there ensure to check BBM and app world and follow rest procedure...!!


Hope this will help you

Re: bbm and app world


I thought my problems with app world were over with this link ,


This link will install app world v4.0.0.55.

Well I still have app world and the app world icon but when I install the upgrade for app world v4.0.0.63 it will disappear again.


My phone BB Torch 9800, software v6.0.0.246 (Bundel 695, Platform

App world version v4.0.0.55.


Why does BB send me an upgrade that's not working.
