    i would think just use whatever base program you have uninstall it reintall it and then re download and run the v3.5 hybrid installer... you just have to make sure you uninstall what you have now because its got the 5.0 files on it but once you reinstall will be like new... let me know if that dont work

    I'm usually pretty good with this stuff, but I'm drawing a huge blank right now. Does just deleting the folder uninstall it?

    No, you need to go to the add/remove programs and install it.

    no go into start>controlpanlel>addremove programs> pick the os...then remove(will be a button on the right) once done where ever you saved the downloaded file (usually desktop) re- run/install that os and the voila all you gotta do is the v3.5 installer..


    sry shane same time post i think

    You will have to run the loaderapp again, and when the checkboxes come up, check to make sure the bbmesenger is checked off. then run the wizard again

    Go to Options>Mobile Network>BB Key>Diagnostics Test>BB key> Run
    It registers, sends service books, runs it through all the tests

    Plug in BB>Open DM> select Apploader>Add/remove> scroll down check the BBM box>select finish., to get it back for sure...

    EDIT, didn't see your post Neo.
