    Thumbs up How To Recover/Add COD Files

    Advertisement



    well i removed the 3 bb themes and left the zen and then ran into problems of downloading themes and them not showing and removing other files from the info posted below, and want them back well here is a fast and easy way

    !!!!!NOTE!!!! the red text below is proly what u did to remove the files which u might be thinking why did i do that now lol joke also this is faster way then tryin to mess with the other way of doin this

    1.u are goin to download BBMC (AKA) Blackberry Master Control Program from http://mcp.sodpit.com/ or here download link >> http://sodpit.com/request.php?65

    2.once installed open it up should look like this when u have it open


    3.click on the java cup icon its under the House one and u will be at a window that looks like this




    4.now click on the button that says (cod/jad),after u do that u will have to browse to the place the files are if u moved them to a diff folder go to that folder if u removed them off pc look in i think it was

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\xxx\Java on your PC

    or

    "C:\Documents and Settings\This will be your (username)\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader Cache\this will be a link number something like (38ec2b91bd2f964f072821beff6365d84932e35b)\Java\an d the cod files will be there

    now when u select them dont do to many at a time i would say 2 if u removed alot of stuff like themes and others k,once u brosed to it and clicked open the browse window should close and u should see the file in the window there with the path if not click and hold mouse and move it a lil due to some windows themes it might not show the text tell u highlight it,if u see that cod file u selected means u are ready to click on the load button under execute,it will add the file and the blackberry will restart and there u go should be back and working and u are done

    note u can use this to add cod files that have no alx cuz the dm will handle alx then do the rest so

    Removing Default Items and Modules
    Now we can get a bit more technical and remove some of the other features that will save even more space. To start, you will need to have your current OS installed on your PC. If you don’t have it you can usually download it here: BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites and install it to your PC. After it is installed, plug in your BB and open Desktop Manager. Do a complete backup of your device (from the Backup/Restore menu). When the backup is complete, close the Desktop Manager and unplug your BB. Delete the vendor.xml file from your PC (should be located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader). This file is really unnecessary as it only tells your device specifics about your carrier and OS, so we can just trash it.
    There are certain items that can be removed to save space such as Voice Activated Dialing (VAD), Push to Talk (PTT) on some AT&T Devices, themes etc. Decide what you don’t use and we can remove them from the device. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\xxx\Java on your PC (where xxx is the installed OS version). From here we can do the following:
    Remove Wallpaper:

    net_rim_bb_media_320x240_b.COD
    or

    net_rim_bb_media_240 x 260_b.COD
    These two files will most likely have your device model in them but it is essentially what the file name will appear as.


    (The best way to handle them is to move them to a separate directory - Create a new directory labeled "Removed”)
    Select the COD file and move it to the “Removed” folder.
    This will remove all of the pre-installed wall paper, leaving you with a blank background.
    Remove Default Themes:
    Themes are supplied by BlackBerry and the carrier. Each device is carrier branded during manufacture; the branding controls the loading of specific theme components.
    In this case, T-Mobile themes are identified by "100". Other carriers have similar numbers assigned. You can ignore themes with non matching numbers; they will be skipped in the process.

    net_rim_theme_100_320x240_b.COD
    net_rim_theme_bbdimension_zen_320x240_b.COD
    Both of the above are needed for normal device operation. You can safely remove the following:

    net_rim_theme_bbdimentions_icon_320x240_b
    net_rim_theme_bbdimentions_l_320x240_b
    net_rim_theme_bbdimentions_today_320x240_b


    Removing these is optional, it will save about 700 Kb.
    Remove Push To Talk:
    If you are not using it (your device may not even have it), remove these files:

    KnJCDE
    net_rim_bb_phone_ptt_app
    Remove Voice Activated Dialing:

    Move all files prefaced with net_rim_vad_ to the Removed folder.


    Remove Password Keeper:
    Move all files prefaced with net_rim_bb_passwordkeeper_resource_ to the Removed folder.


    Connect your device to your PC and run the Application Loader to complete the changes.
    If there are other applications you want to remove, verify which modules are used with by going to Options > Advanced Options.
    Choose an application, press the Menu key and select View Properties. All modules are that make up the application are listed.*
    *Keep in mind, other applications may share modules. Be prepared to restore some of them if you run into problems (that’s why we did a backup first).
    After these procedures you may also find that Desktop Manager will not recognize your device. If this happens, go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager on your PC and delete you Blackberry Device. Then reconnect it and it should be accepted by the Desktop Manager.
