    can't uninstall theme with pocketmac

    Advertisement



    Hello all. I've got an 8100 on T-mo and am using pocketmac. I downloaded a theme and installed it using pocketmac. I am now trying to uninstall it but it won't work. It is not under the applications menu on the phone itself either. When i use pocketmac, i select utilities -> uninstall software. I select the theme. It asks me if i'm sure, i say yes, and then my phone flashes the connected to computer screen but then goes away and the phone doesn't restart and the theme stays in place. I can't get it off. any ideas?

    Yes they do but it takes a little patience on your part
    I would say remove the theme from the device itself, but you're saying the theme isn't showing under applications.
    Options>Advanced Options>Applications>scroll to the theme and hit Menu>Delete.
    I don't use a Mac so am not familiar with the process much but someone will be along shortly to help.
    Just try to be patient.

    Right. Patience. Auummmm. ah. better. I was a little edgy because i posted here about tethering as a modem and went for three days without a response. This being my second post i was a little skeptical

    Anyways thanks for the response. I don't understand. I installed the theme through pocketmac. however pocketmac will not remove it. The theme shows up in the theme list but it does not show up in the apps list. I am now trying to fix this on a windows computer but am having no luck. isn't there a way to completely restore to factory settings? i can't find one.

    Re: can't uninstall theme with pocketmac

    as an update. i used the PC desktop manager program to wipe all the applications. The phone is like new except that damn theme. It won't go away. this is making me crazy. I'm a little disappointed that the DM program will allow me to wipe apps but not flash to original factory settings. Any ideas here?

    Have you tried to remove the battery and restart your BB? Had experienced this before.

    Does the theme show up on DM? That is the way you could be removing it via DM if it doesn't show up on the device itself as I indicated above.

    Yes, if you want to completely restore to factory settings, simply go to Options>Security options>General Settings>hit Menu>Wipe Handheld.
    This will restore the device to factory settings.
    This way you can install your 3rd party apps again fresh and themes, etc.

    Re: can't uninstall theme with pocketmac

    Thanks for the replies folks. Im afraid I've tried all of the procedures above. In DM I wiped out every application from the phone and that manages to stay. It is as if it was a preloaded theme, but it's not. As a side note, I used pocketmac to install it. When i went to "uninstall applications" and selected it, it asked if i was sure then did nothing when i clicked ok. the phone cycled to the connected to computer screen for about a millisecond and that was it, still showed as installed on pocketmac. However when i deleted pocketmac and reinstalled it, it no longer showed up on the installed apps list. Very weird. I was considering trying the javaloader stuff to try to delete it but i don't want to f anything up. I guess I'll just let it be an addition to the three defaults.

    btw the wipe handheld thing leaves apps

    Ok I'm gonna make one more attempt before i give up. I tried reinstalling the theme with pocketmac which got it to show back up in the apps list. However i still can't uninstall. When i click uninstall application and select that one, it asks me if i'm sure to which i reply hell yes. then it just does nothing. no reset. no nothing. any ideas?

    As last resort you could wipe using JL_cmder:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ds/links/5/452
    and reload the OS.
    That would definitely uninstall everything and wipe it clean.
