    Blackberry Protect attempts to mimic the services of Where's my Phone but actually locks the user out of many functions.

    Examples of Blackberry Protect actions the user might not want:

    1. Cannot access WiFi from the OS7 handset without a SIM inserted and the handset connected to a wireless provider 2G (Edge), 3G or 4G data network.

    2. Inability to access or setup key areas of the phone without cleaning the Blackberry Protect "security check", that will not work through WiFi and MUST have a network data signal.

    3. Automatically wiping the handset, when the SIM is replaced.

    The solution to these problems is the eradication of Blackberry protect from the OS7 handset. This may be accomplished in several ways:

    1. Deleting the files directly from the handset

    a. Connect the handset to a PC and fire up BBSAK version 1.8.5 (or newer) or Blackberry Master Control program 1.0.0.0

    b. Delete ALL the following cod files from the handset. The files need to be removed one at a time, as the handset will reboot several times during this process.

    net_rim_bb_dryad_commonlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_daemonlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_gui.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_platformcommonlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_platformlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_reslargelib.cod
    net_rim_bbcommons_dryad.cod

    2. Wiping the handset and reloading the OS

    a. Make a complete backup of your data!!!

    b. Download the version of OS7 that you want to load (the delete the vendor.xml file as described well elsewhere.)

    c. Go into the Program Files > Common Files > Research in Motion > Shared > OS you've downloaded and installed on the PC name > net_rim_bb_dryad.alx

    DELETE THE FILE net_rim_bb_dryad.alx

    d. If you are paranoid and want to be totally sure that Blackberry Protect is GONE, to to the Java folder

    Program Files > Common Files > Research in Motion > Shared > OS you've downloaded and installed on the PC name > Java

    and also delete ALL of the following files

    net_rim_bb_dryad_commonlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_daemonlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_gui.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_platformcommonlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_platformlib.cod
    net_rim_bb_dryad_reslargelib.cod
    net_rim_bbcommons_dryad.cod

    e. Brick the phone and reload the new OS using Crack Mem v 3.4 (or newer)

    Can you not just uninstall it in options?
    Theres a feee program called shrink nux that lets you delete the cods off you phone too, you would only need to reboot once.

    Did you look in App world under My World. If I remember correctly it is listed in there and can easily deleted.

    Just looked in mine and BB Protect Is listed in my uninstalled apps. I knew I had uninstalled it there.

    Rubbish indeed. I have no cell reception in my house at all; device works fine over wifi; everything except app world. I have pulled my sim several times and never had the device wiped.

    BB protect has been running on mine since day 1.

    True. I have no idea where this guy gets his misinformation from.

    I even proved it with a screen capture here... http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...i-only-696885/
