    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?

    I did not uninstall DM, only the device OS. There is (currently) no device software loaded on my computer.

    I tried this and it STILL wanted to load maps.
    Gave up and let it load.
    At least I got maps working.
    Had to resend service books to do that.

    This is pretty annoying. After I shrink the OS and remove the all the garbage (such as the setup wizard) load the OS and go to load my apps it won't let me load the apps without reinstalling the core updates which puts the garbage back on my phone. It easily adds 10MB of unnecessary crap onto my phone!

    I've tried renaming the folder the OS is is and completely deleting it before I run DM. Any other ideas?

    Wish I did,
    This and the duplicate groups calendar issue seem to have stumped everybody!

    the problem would be that .328 is an offical release so DM sees it everytime whether you have it installed or not so if you shrank its going to want to reinstall

    I get that too and its annoying but I just click cancel. I believe if you turn pc internet connections off then it wouldn't prompt for update.

    I may try that. I just want to load my apps and it makes me update everything which adds a bunch of the crap I just took out back in. It's crazy!

    I avoid that by loading my apps at same time I load my OS. I have tried both ways and have not seen any differences. Unless I run into issues or trying to figure out an issue, then I load separately. Saves me time and hassle. I wish dm would not even attempt looking for an update, but I doubt its possible yet.

    You can click add (where the list comes up), then navigate to where the 3rd party app back up is saved and select it. It should add them.
