Re: permanent delete of applications , not just uninstalled them

You can't delete those "uninstalled" applications from AppWorld (and they don't add to the device memory, as they are deleted, or uninstalled).


You can try resetting AppWorld, and this may remove some of those uninstalled apps, but they also may reappear.

1. Open App World
2. Go to My World
3. Hold down the ALT key and press "RST"
4. If your BB locks after issuing the cache clear, perform a battery pull reboot
