    How To Remove PTT App From AT&T 8310 Curve...Please Help!!

    Advertisement



    How can I most easily remove the PTT application from my AT&T 8310 Curve...?

    I am not a computer-freindly guy, or a techie...and have asked this on two other phone forums, only to get techie-language instructions that I simply don't understand or know how to follow.

    Can somebody give me an extremely simplified, baby-step-by-baby-step tutorial on how to do this?

    I already have the AT&T 8310 OS installed on my desktop...but don't know what to do with it.

    HELP!!:cry:

    Re: How To Remove PTT App From AT&T 8310 Curve...Please Help!!

    Ok super simplified

    1. Follow this path:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8310-v4.2.2.181_P2.5.0.35(this is your OS version) Your should be 4.2.2.176 or something like that.

    2. Open up the Platform.alx file with notepad or wordpad

    3. Hit CTRL+F and type ptt and click find
    FIND this line:
    <fileset pttApp="True" Java="1.0" _vendorID="100">
    <files>


    4. Change the
    _vendorID to 100 like mine says, yours should say 102

    5. Save and Open up DM and plug in your BB. It should prompt you to update if done right.

    Re: How To Remove PTT App From AT&T 8310 Curve...Please Help!!

    To remove PTT for me the easiest way is to have
    your BB's current OS installed on your PC.
    To find out what OS you are running you can go
    to Options>About on the BB or
    hit Alt>Ent>H
    on your BB keyboard.

    If you're feeling brave and want to upgrade OS
    as well, the most recent OS installed on
    your PC, in your case this one:
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...70A3A6658DFDD5
    how to here:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...rade_your.html

    Once you've downloaded the OS, navigate to this path in C drive:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
    and delete the vendor.xml file

    Then navigate to this path also:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8310-v4.2.2.181_P2.5.0.35\Java (or whatever OS version it shows v4.2.2.XXX etc.)
    Once in the above file, switch to "List" view
    and delete the following file:
    net_rim_bb_phone_ptt_app.cod

    Connect your BB to PC start up DM (Device Manager)
    If you don't have this installed you should, it's on the disk that came with your PC, but
    I recommend downloading the latest version can be found here:
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/browseSoftware.do

    Start App Loader>click Next and just click Next again, not Add and it will recognize
    that there is no ptt.cod file in the OS and remove it from your device.

    Let the BB reboot and you should have no more PTT!

    Good luck! And let us know how it goes!

    Anyone have any ideas why I can't get into the Loader file?

    I type it in just as it's written (even changed the numbers to my model) and it will not open anything.

    Any thought would be appreciated.

    Did you install the Handheld Software(OS) first?

    I had installed things from the disc I got with the phone so I had the device manager on there etc, but I went in and downloaded the OS software and that was the problem.

    such a simple thing but overlooked.

    thanks!

    You mean DM won't recognize your device?
