Thanks - I did go to RIM Geeks and saw that they had a preview of the next version and the button is back.
Using DM now to install the ALX.
Thanks for the confirmation that I wasn't going crazy or blind. mfg:

I like it without. I can just reload my apps while using apploader to install my OS. I click add at the top then navigate to the backup folder and voila....only one reset like you said.

C you out there in the forums...
Awesome tutorial!!! I was wondering how to do this. I'm coming from the WinMo side and was pretty adept at doing it but BB has always scared me. Thanks for the info. It is greatly appreciated.
Your very welcome, I'm happy you were helped. :147:

Let me know after you have tried these steps.

re App Loader Failure
Hi Neo - running XP / restarted computer - no change - then went back and reinstalled 191 then rewrote 230 over it (which put back the RIM Internal tools I had deleted) - but still no response when I double click the app loader icon. I then tried DM to see if it recognized my unit but it could not connect (no pin) What are my options - please help - noel
So, you double click the icon and nothing happens?
It sounds like a PC issue because the program should run.
My advise is, if possible, to try another PC and see if you can get better results.
Another problem is of course the DM not recognizing the device. Try another PC if you can.
I wasn't able to install the net framework or get bbsak to connect.
Going to reebot computer.
First three Posts in this thread have been updated with Video.
I have two questions: 1.I want to back up my contacts. Do i do that thru DM as a backup? I am about to wipe the phone and do not want to do a mistake. 2. I have to reinstall the Blackberry Messenger again or just do a restore?
thanks ahead of time
1. You should do the DM backup and the BBSAK to backup apps
