    PocketMac Uninstall Problems

    Advertisement



    Does anyone have problems uninstalling apps that you've installed through PocketMac? It seems like it doesn't work at all. Nothing is ever removed from the phone but there are no errors generated from the pocketmac synmanager.

    kpishdadi, me too! PocketMac4 just does not work at all and there are some programs that it will not install either. Par for the course with this program. I am waiting for the iPhone where they take the Mac seriously, and Windows users, too for that matter. Sync flawless like in iTunes...I''m in!!!

    FYI: i posted this way back when I first got blackberry. I since found out that the install to device doesnt work on pocketmac so don't use it.

    If you need to install something, do it OTA or use a windows computer (eww!)

    Re: PocketMac Uninstall Problems

    I just got my BB a month ago and had the same problem like u guys but fortunately I found a way out and thanks to the advise from members here.

    There's a bug in pocketmac which only installs the modules of an app but not the whole app. So when uninstalling, without the main app the modules cannot be removed.

    I've contacted the developers and they are looking into the issue. However during this time pocketmac is still able to install app but you may need a pc and BB's apploader to uninstall it. Its not necessary to wipe your device.

    OTA - Over The Air. Some programs will allow downloading and installation from the phone itself without the need for a computer. It is really the only way to go for Mac people. Problem is not all applications offer an OTA version.

    The best uninstall I ever did was to uninstall freakin' PocketMac. What a waste of disc space!

    Re: PocketMac Uninstall Problems

    i never successfully uninstalled a program using pocketmac. i only installed one program successfully for that matter. i finally bit the bullet and bought missing sync. it syncs flawlessly (even with itunes), as near as i can tell but - unfortunately - can't install applications. right now i rely on OTA for what i need.

    btw - i filed at least three "support tickets" on the pocketmac site regarding sync problems without an answer, which was the final straw. bottom line? if you want reliable sync'ing completely uninstall pocketmac (yes, its a must. search www.blackberry.com "clean uninstall of pocketmac") and buy missing sync.
    if you are going to skate on thin ice you may as well dance.

    How do I remove apps that have been installed with pocketmac?

    I have gone to a friends windows computer and installed the desktop software and tried to use app manager.

    But it says that the device software is different from the installed software and I must contact my sys admin or telco. I am guessing this is due to the way that pocket Mac has corrupted the install.

    I have tried going through "options - advanced options - applications"
    and the applications are not listed.

    How did such a peice of software make it through User Acceptance Testing? This IS POOR WORKMANSHIP.
    I am frustrated that this software has left my blackberry in a state that appears to be unrecoverable.

    Can someone help?
