    3rd party backup messup--Help

    Hello all, well today i installed V7 which btw is spectacular. I backed up my 3rd party apps with the exception of one mistake. The alx file does not have all the info in it that is in the saved folder. In a nut shell the alx file references 4 of my apps. I actually have about 25 of them saved. Is there a way to get those back into the system or am i hooped?

    That is the price of wiping. Backing up restoring third party apps can b tricky. I try buying all my apps cb app store. This way u can locate your apps u bought and all series numbers are there also.

    Moosc you can easily do that at our store as well in fact anything you purchase through CB is listed in the "my account" section of our store. Since both ours and CB's run through MobiHand. Just an FYI

    Mobihand is great for this. Its what I thought appworld would have done.

    Good to know BBOS store carriers over. Yet again another piece in the complete transition.

    Why would you go anywhere else!

    If you had a previous 3rd party app back up, then your DM only pulled the new/updated apps....what you need to do is send the recent back up to .zipped folder, then delete the original folder (not .zip)....Once you do that, do the 3rd party app back up again and you should have all of them

    If the new backup only backed up four of the 25 or so apps, then you should be able to see the other apps in DM or you should still have the previous third party app backup folder on your computer somewhere. Try doing a search for it. I always save mine to a different folder under backups and recently I have been renaming the old ones so the new one will show all of the apps again. This seems to work great and I still have the older ones should I need them.

    I tried that and it didn't work for me....I had to do the .zip method like I mentioned in the above post.....but hey this would simplify things

    RIM just needs to add an option to back up 3rd party apps in DM!!!
