Those who have a BlackBerry in hand may want to check and see if you have a new update available as RIM is pushing out version 3.1.1.21 of BlackBerry App World. While the version upgrade is rather small it does bring a few much-needed fixes.

Updated in v3.1.1.21

  • Alternate billing options shown in purchase confirmation screen
  • Review submission screen UI refresh
  • Bug fixes

If you aren't seeing the update just yet, hold off as it can take a few hours to push through the servers. Or if you like you can do the old "ALT RST" trick and see if that motivates your phone to serve up the new App World.

I really wish they would shrink down the icons on the main page so that I don't have to scroll down to "My World". I know it's not that big of a deal, but it just looks and feels poorly designed.

I really wish I was reading about a 7.1 update for the 9790.

Getting message "Blackberry App World is undergoing maintenance. Please try again later"

I updated to the new version and for some reason I can't access my world even a battery pull wouldn't work.

I just posted the same thing on the forums but after 3 battery pulls and a "REFRESH LIST" from the blackberry button on the phone--Bingo, everything showed up again on bothe the handheld device and the pc version of app world. Give it a try.

Sxxt!! "BlackBerry App World is having trouble connecting to the BlackBerry App World server. Verify your network connections and try again"...

i have tried 4G an WIFI... there is no way to get it working :@

calicocat2010

I got that message too and I have WIFI on.

decypher44

At least you guys are getting the "maintenance" message. I'm getting the "App World is having trouble connecting to the App World server" message.

But I got that message with the old and new version today.

Bash_Man

i was getting the Maintenance message.. then I closed it, reopened it and before it got to that Message, I did ALT R S T and it seems to be working now.

Try it and see if it works for you guys.

Cheers

decypher44

RST and now get the "maintenance" message.

ShoshiOne

It let me download the updated App World, but I also get the "maintenance" message now. Is this just while they push out the update to everyone?

TomCanuck

It's not a problem with the update. I just tried Apple World 2.x and it's not working either for me

Just completely idiotic timing

rgorman

okay- it's back and running as of 1:25 pm EST

Rootbrian

It works for me, no issues, my world works too!
Alt-RST did the trick and eliminated the maintenance and network connection errors.

lycafe

AW is up and running now.

scalemaster34

RIM is getting to be as bad a Adobe is with their updates.....

lengend

How do you do that ALT + RST? I got a brain fart right now.

rfig

Go to "My World", hold down 'Alt' and press R S T while still holding 'Alt' down. AppWorld should reset and refresh your app list.

Double post deleted.

Did anyone notice that the link is actually for the UK? Regardless, I had an update show up on my device. Was originally showing the cannot connect to the App World server. Did the ALT R S T thing and I could then get into App World, but, then I got the maintenance message. I waited and tried later and the update was no longer showing available. I go to the App World Download site and it is still showing the old version here in Canada. I wait for a little longer and now the update is there again on my device. Here's an update, here boy, here boy....Quit yanking my chain! Downloaded and just rebooting now.

digitalhomeboy

I never got the maintenance msg, but AW is only showing 3.1.0.60 from the link above. I'm currently using beta 3.1.1.15. I wish the beta team would shoot out a message to indicate that an update non-beta version will be released.

Demandred7

App World new version running now. Although still no fix to the annoying feature of jumping back to the top of a list when refreshing with more apps as you scroll down. It is especially annoying and even more annoying the further down you go because you have scroll all of the way back down to where I was when it refreshed/extended the list.

Vee_G

Thanks! It's beyond annoying and needs to be addressed.

scrapmetal58

The App Store in iOS does that too. It's annoying.

How about getting 7.1 OS on T-Mobile...

Kinto Rothmans

I predict facebook and Twitter for BlackBerry's coming soon for downloads as well?

go1ndr

From above: I just posted the same thing on the forums but after 3 battery pulls and a "REFRESH LIST" from the blackberry button on the phone--Bingo, everything showed up again on bothe the handheld device and the pc version of app world. Give it a try.

Maybach_Music

"ALT RST" wouldn't work for me (kicked me out of App world and onto my home screen) doing the usual "Reboot Now"

anthogag

I downloaded it and it's much faster!

El Cid

Glad to hear that. What Berry and OS are you using?

anthogag

9800, OS 6

If you don't see the upgrade on your screen reboot your phone. That's the way to get it right away.

Otherwise you wait for a while until you get the message.

go1ndr

Absolutely faster and seems better though I wasn't totally unimpressed with the last version. If interested, I'm using 7.0 (1355 bundle) OS on a 9810.

triquetra

When I went there this afternoon I read the reviews and everyone was saying don't upgrade yet too buggy. Since it works fine for me now I think I'm just gonna wait.

Bobcat665

Grrr! I DL'd it and it won't function on my Pearl 9100 at all. It won't start up: It just locks up! After countless restarts and reloads it just doesn't work at all. It's completely broken. I now have no access to AW at all. I'm not impressed...

bigbobbyboogie

+2, tried to delete and reinstall on my 9100 as well. No luck. No option to reinstall last version either. Double GRRR!

bigbobbyboogie

Do the following:
options>device>application management
choose blackberry app world
select delete
restart
on restart, send browser to:
http://rroyy.com/ota/
reinstall old version of blackberry appworld
in my case BlackBerry App World v3.1.0.60 (OS6), no more freezing, all good.
stupid "upgrade"

Bobcat665

Thanks for the info, bruh. DLing the old(er) version now...

bigbobbyboogie

You are welcome as well, see my reply to El Cid below.

El Cid

Thank YOU!!!

You're a life saver!!!

It seems that this update is the third one in a row that has created serious issues for many end users, though it appears not to affect as many as the two updates that preceded it. I think that many of the issues may be taking place on older BlackBerries that run on OS 5 and OS 6, I have come to this conclusion (just an opinion) because I've noticed that a plurality of the negative comments are not authored by users with a proper command of the English language, thus leading me to believe that most of them are from emerging markets nations, wherein the majority of BlackBerries sold are one or two generations older than the current/latest generation sold in the USA and Canadian markets. There are of course exceptions to this generalization, myself and my immediate family included, as we're still using BlackBerries on OS 5, which is why we haven't updated our BB App World app for a few months.

Thanks again for your very useful info.

bigbobbyboogie

You are most welcome. I read a similar solution somewhere else, so I got it from another helpful person and passed it on. It worked for me, so I hoped it would help someone else.

I'm sure RIM will fix it, but until then it shouldn't be pushed out yet. Mind you, I haven't been given the "Update" push again yet though. Maybe they've stopped it.

tomabraham63

yup -- crashes on my 9810 as well.

tightlybound

Thanks for being the guinea pig. I've been waiting to download it until someone posted about it working or not working on a 9810. Guess I'll sit this one out.

dhbrell10

patelmehul1111
