    How to get DM to stop Loading BB Maps and updates?

    I have shrunk my os and removed BBMaps.
    How can I DM to stop asking to load BB Maps and other updates?
    It only happens on first sync after a restart of DM.

    TIA!

    I have a similar problem since upgrading to Storm2 and even on my Storm1 v.328. Every time I start DM it tells me I need to update my 5.0.0 core applications. I spent altogether about 6-7 hours on the phone with Verizon and RIM tech support over the last few days and still no solution. RIM tech support is supposed to be working on it for me and will get back to me within 48 hrs. They say it seems to be a problem with their web based updating program.

    Try renaming the OS folder. Put like the letter A before it.

    Had the same annoyance. Uninstalled OS 5.0 from my puter, rebooted, then cleaned out the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared folder (I'm using WinXP Pro SP3) of any remnants, and hasn't happened since.

    i shrunk and removed some sample pics and videos. and the next time DM ran it put them back on. the files were not in the Java folder for it to get put back in. musta been from the web. if i look in DM under update software I have 2 5.0's. one says local installation other just gives 50. info. you could also if it gets to be enough of a pain, is to add Dm to your firewall and block it. I should since all of my updates have been from an .exe.

    Am I missing something?

    You did reload DM and unit os files (230) correct?
