Camera Icon Gone!

I was managing my applications, I remove all Icon on the quick acces area or dock as they call it. When I put again the icon of camera in the dock, its disappered. Then I received a notification "array_insert invalid array index". Please help. I want my Camera Icon back! 

 

Take Note that everytime I drag an icon to the dock area, it disappeared and I receives a notification again about array invalid.

Re: Camera Icon Gone!

Drag ALL your icons into the top area. Ignore the array error.

Hold down power button til you get the Restart option and tap restart.

All the icons should return to their rightful place.

To answer your other post, you will not lose game data this way.

You have to move ALL the icons there before restarting.

 

If the icon was lost because of  emptying out the quick launch bar then the workaround will bring the lost icons back.  Blackberry call it a workaround because they have not had the resources (or intention) to fix the original bug where they didn't code the correct array processing.

It has worked on 1526 in previous posts.

 

if you lost the icon some other way it may not come back, however the camera icon is a fixed icon and can't normally be deleted any other way. 

 

Always be prepared to wipe the playbook, one day it will be necessary.
