    new to the forums and read the whole thread.

    Problem is as follows:
    Backed up my pearl, downloaded and ran JML CMDR, wiped to factory, uploaded blank policy.bin and then performed a restore.

    Performing the restore reactivated the firewall although everything else is clean and beautiful.

    Is there a way to omit certain restore items to keep the firewall policy off? I've removed "firewall" and removed "policy" but it didn't work.

    I'm aware of the Beta install and OS rollback solution but was hoping for something less intensive. I'm running the 4.3 OS and can handle the newbie comments. If there's no other way, I'll do it the 'Beta' way

    Much appreciated

    My question is: if one completely removes an IT policy, can that person then get into their BES system and do things like check email, etc., or is the IT policy pushed back to the device? I don't have an IT policy. My employer has begun to offer some of us access to our work email through our personal devices. I'm pretty sure this'll put an IT policy on my device, so I declined the offer.

    I created this tool that will automatically remove the policies for you. It basically automates the process that is listed here. It is only 140KB. If you have any questions you can email me at Mrfreeze574@gmail.com or reply to this thread I guess.

    The procedure here is not reccomended due to a RIM generated error in the policy.bin file. All the files that I have been able to find on the web have the same error. After the operation to remove the IT Policy, the Firewall remains locked. There is no known work around. I even called RIM and asked them how to remove an IT Policy and they told me that it could not be done. Oh yeah. Here's how.

    The only valid way to fully remove an IT Policy is forst to be running an OS of version 4.3 or hogher or this procedure will not work. It may therefore be neccessary to upgrade the OS to 4.3 or better before proceeding.

    If you are running OS 4.3 or better
    All you need is JL_Cmder. Sync your phone and do a Backup before starting. Once this is done, shut down Desktop Manager and run up JL_Cmder. From the main screen select menu item 5 (resettofactory). Follow exactly the instructions given by JL_Cmder and then wait until the phone has re-booted. Now do a Restore and you should now see that the Firewall (Options, Security Options, Firewall) now has no little red lock against it.

    If you are running OS 4.2
    Sync your phone and do a Backup.
    Install and OS version greater than 4.2 (any version 4.3 or above will do). Check Options, ABout and read the 3rd line down.
    Run JL_Cmder and select menu option 5
    Follow the instructions exactly.
    When the phone has rebooted check Options, Security Options, Firewall now has no little red lock against it.
    Re-install your old OS
    Do a Restore.

    To downgrade, simply uninstall OS 4.5 (but keep 4.2 installed) from your PC and Desktop Manager will prompt you to ask if it should downgrade.

    I know that this proceedure is long and tedious but it does work reliably.

    I am running into IT policy problems when trying to activate a unit that a user brought with them from another organization.

    There should be an option to wipe only the organizational data from the unit without touching their personal items, when someone departs. Oh well.

    I do have a BES, so I will try to back everything up, wipe, and then apply my IT policy, which is not very restrictive at all.

    BTW that worked for me, although, getting all his personal stuff on there from the backup was a bit of a pain in the backside.

    I'm using a 8707G with 4.2 OS. Since no 4.5 OS is available at this moment, can I upgrade to 8700 4.5 so as to remove the IT Policy using JL_Cmder and downgrade back to 8707 4.2 upon finished?

    Are there any programs you can download on the blackberry that will not conflict with the IT policy?

    The IT POlicy rules the BlackBerry. It is set up by the IT dept. to reflect the level and type of security that a particular company feels that it needs. Thus an IT Policy may at will be configured to disable the camers, prevent writing to the Media Card, turn off Bluetooth or restrict dialling to sertain numbers. There is practically noting that cannot be locked or forced or read with this tool.

    I've had so many problems with my Blackberry Pearl. Once I removed an older IT Policy using your directions, everything seems to finally be working again. I can now access the internet as intended!! Yay!! Thanks so much for posting such great instructions.
