    Help- Locked out of my Curve

    Advertisement



    I wanted to neaten up the applications icons in one of the BB themes, so I created folders called "Applications", "System" etc. I put the Settings Icon in the System folder. I then removed sofware I had installed earlier, and when the Curve rebooted the folders I created were gone! When I tried to recreate a "System" folder I got a message the name was in use, so it is there somewhere-

    Right now, I have lost access to most of what is on the Curve!


    So: Is there a way to access the Themes control so I can change Themes? I think if I do this the icons may come back- OR - Can I use some ota method to install AND run another Theme? I tried to install another theme ota and the system took it, rebooted to the corrupted theme I am having trouble with now.

    Any help MUCH appreciated!!

    Thx..

    Tried that first- is there a way to "Hard reboot" the device? I have tried the battery removal approach and that did not work..

    If you have disabled "dial from home screen" you can try the shortcut 'O' for Options.

    That did reboot the device- but the "wrench" icon is still invisible- also running switch programs does not work either- need a way to reset the Theme from outside the unit- may be impossible.

    Alternatively, you can try to connect to desktop manager and remove the theme that is causing problems. Even with no other theme, there's a defualt theme. I forget the Alt code to switch to the default.
