    1. Go to your C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8100-<version> folder on your PC. Make a backup copy of the LBS.alx file. (I used LBS.alx_bak)

    2. Open LBS.alx with a text editor.

    3. Search for the string "net_rim_bb_lbs_ribbon.cod". Above this file is a lines that read
    Code:
    <!-- For 8800 series, hide the icon for Cingular (102), Vodafone Germany (124), Vodafone Austria (137) and all Orange properties, including Amena (Orange Spain - 175). -->
      <!-- For non-8800 series, show the icon for all carriers except Cingular (102), Vodafone Germany (124), Vodafone Austria (137) and all Orange properties, including Amena (Orange Spain - 175). -->
      <fileset SystemSize="normal" Colour="True" Java="1.0" _vendorID="~102|124|137|119|162|142|183|147|217|175" series="~8800">
    4. Update the line that has the vendorID string to remove the "102". It should look like this when done:
    Code:
      <fileset SystemSize="normal" Colour="True" Java="1.0" _vendorID="~124|137|119|162|142|183|147|217|175" series="~8800">
    5. Save the file.

    6. Connect your Pearl and open up the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

    7. Double click on Application Loader and don't change any settings.

    8. It will go through and claim to be installing BB Maps. When complete, the icon will be back.

    NOTE: This works only if the application is on the device but there is on icon. Please don't do this if you don't feel comfortable as I don't want anyone blaming me for messing things up.


    Sorry but, what is a "text editor" ?
    thanks.
