    firewall locked after restore

    I've read all the forums that I can find and can't find a solution so hear we go....... 1st off, this IS a personal storm, not BES and not a company phone. 2nd I'm running 4.7.0.141. My situation is that the firewall is locked, which is not a big deal but is mainly annoying. I've tried using the Crackutil proogram to wipe the IT policy, which shouldn't even exist on my phone. After I run the program and select, "remove policy," the phone will show that the firewall is disabled and I'm able to enable/disable it at will. Once I hook up to DM 4.7 and restore the phone settings thats when it relocks the firewall. I'm only running a few third party apps: BigTinCan Buzzme, Facebook, Google sync, Handango, Pandora, Phone Tweak and youtube app from google. The problem happened somtime after upgrading from .75 to .141. I can't remember all the OS numbers I went through, but I used all the leaked and official OS's, none of the hybrids. The problem was also there befor loading Pandora, Youtube, and Phone Tweak. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Again this is not a buisness phone and I am the original owner.
    Thanks for any help

    Question IT Policy

    I had a similar problem. Yes the Crackutil will remove it.. But I think what happens is when you do the restore one of the databases in there puts it back on. There is a database called IT Policy, and there may be on called Handheld Configurations. I had did a manual restore myself on my phone a few databases at a time and it the lock with password thing did not come back. But then I restored some more and it did.

    It is something in one of the databases that does the restore.

    IT Policy
    Handheld Config
    Firewall Options
    Options

    It might be one of those. Try a manual restore and do not pick those and see what happens. I do not know what one it is. It did not matter to me because I use it on BES for work and I need the pswd thing.

    When I first restored the second time and it came back it comes up and asks me for new password to set.

    Sounds like you have an IT policy set up in your back up. You will need to delete items from your back up to stop the policy from reloading everytime you restore.

    Just go to your DM/ backup/restore and choose advanced. You will want to clear out the following;

    keystores (all of them, just run through the list)
    Policy
    Handheld Config
    Firewall Options
    Options
    rim database

    Then you can run your backup from there.

    No go....

    Thanks for the reply BBC. I went to advanced and cleared out the databases you told me from the right column and ran a backup. I then restored and it didn't get rid of it. Was I supposed to clear those databases from the right column/device database or the computer database? Also am I supposed to backup and then use the Crackutil to remove policy and then restore? Sorry for the many questions. Also, off subject but curious, what is the difference in OS between your hybrids and the standard OS's?

    Thanks again

    Try using JLcmder's "reset to factory" command to remove ALL IT policies, Firewall restrictions and Application Permission settings. Install a new OS, then backup the device using Desktop Manager, close Desktop Manager, then run JLcmder and execute the "resettofactory" command. The device will do a security wipe of the device; (meaning wipe your data but leave the OS, DO NOT use the "Wipe" command in JLcmder) then reboot leaving the OS, 3rd party apps but no data this should remove all IT policies. When you're done, now estore your backup and you should not have any IT policies or locked firewall.

    When you do the restore you can not restore those database files that are in question as it might be the one that has the POLICY. User the crack util thing then you i think you have to might have to do a bat pull or just reset the phone and it should wipe the whole phone and remove the policy.

    Then wipe the OS and wipe the filesystem.

    Then reload the software

    Then try that.....

    Then if your are not getting the policy thing. Then you can restore with the advanced option but do not choose those databases to restore.

    Basically if you repeat the same process what you did in the beginning then do the restore just don't pick those databases in question.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

    I'm losing my mind....... I performed another "IT policy wipe" and, like before, Firewall is gone. Went to DM and restored only contacts, calander, profile settings, BB messanger, memos, mms and sms messages, call logs and sounds. Still comes back. I didn't think to check if it's put back on just by hooking to DM. I think I'll try that. It just doesn't make any sense.

    Unless it came down the with the profile settings.. But the profile setting should just hold ring tones, etc.. But maybe.

    Did you do the manual restore and just pick those. It could be possible that you had something else selected also and did not notice.

    Try restoring each database one at a time and check the device after each restore. Its time consuming but this will tell you which data file is causing the issue. I would start with your contacts and go from there. Judging from the list you provided none of those should contain the IT policy.

    Thumbs up Problem fixed!!!!!

    OK!!!!
    Problem is finally fixed. First I performed a backup with DM. Then an IT policy removal with Crackutil. After I did that I decided to only restore the address book and messanger contacts. So, somewhere in one of those other databases or third party apps, something held the firewall policy. Thanks to mixoplex and BBC for their assistance.
