    Blowing away xPlayer impossible?

    Advertisement



    OK, since I haven't got a useful response from ShapeSystems, I figured I'd post here.

    I've got an 8800, T-Mobile, 4.2x software. I downloaded and installed the current release of xPlayer. Installed it using PocketMac. Started it up, and found it buggy... won't play a video that the inbuilt Media Player will, and on attempting to play an MP3, it soft-resets the box. Every. Time.

    However, the real adventure was in trying to REMOVE the piece of fecal matter!

    Uninstalling from within PocketMac doesn't remove the thing. Not a bit of it. The icon's still there, all the modules are still there.

    Weirder yet, attempting to manually blow it away from Options/Advanced/Applications revealed that it *had installed itself as a system module and it cannot be deleted!* That's right, not a single part of xPlayer offers the "delete" option in advanced mode.

    Short of hard-wiping this sauteed goat-gonad off my machine and jumping back to a backup I did before installing it, what can I do to forcibly remove the code? If this was an Apple or a Windows machine, I'd go to the command line and DEL the offending modules, but of course, I can't.

    I have installed xPlayer and had no problems, but did remove it once when testing a different MP3 software. Desktop manager successfully removed xPlayer. I think that is your best bet.

    You can also use the. javaloader command line tool, included in RIM's JDE.

    I would agree that giving Desktop Manager a try is probably your best shot. You might try and see if it will let you delete the application modules (in applications list hit menu and select Modules)

    Will this work with a MAC? I didn't think the DTM worked on a MAC with out Boot camp and a copy of windows running.

    No, you are correct, he would need to find a friend with Windows, but I would think that he might have more success removing the app that way....

    Yep apploader is the way to go for sure, I was hoping that they got Pocket MAC to run some sort of apploader, I don't use MAC myself, Not since the DOS days, but would be nice to be able to to tell customers they can reload the OS with just that now. OH well

    Glad I never tried again their crappy player since they were bought by SHAPE.

    Would this have any use on a MAC?
