BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife Updated

We took a quick look at JL_Cmdr replacement BBSAK a while back, and I just got word that it has been updated with even more new features. Already packed with BlackBerry-tweaking goodies, BBSAK now added some much needed updates, and it sure to have more in store. I actually had to use this over the weekend on my Tour, and I must say it couldn't be any easier to use. Some of the new updates include:

  • Kill Processes Button added (if your having trouble connecting click kill processes to close
  • (BBdevmgr.exe and RimDevManager.exe both started by desktop manager)
  • Full System Dump (Save ALL Cods on device) (Dump CODs)
  • Save button added to Read System (saves all the file names to a SystemRead.txt)
  • ACCURATE Progress Bar added to 3rd Party Backup
  • Files now displayed as they are being saved
  • Can now Save Multiple CODs at one time 
For the full update log and more information, check out the BBSAK thread at RIMGeeks.

But I sent a note to Kevin the other day about this. But the version I told him about was 1.5. Looks like you have an old screenshot here. The new one has a lot more features, and corresponds to the some of the new updates you mentioned.


Just used this last night coming back from OS on storm... oh well still worked out haha


Excuse my ignorance... but what CODs are???


anybody help??
why i cant download BBSAK??

it always show "You are not authorised to download this attachment."

i want join a member, its always failed/no respone..

thx b4


hmm, im not new to BBSAK, but i dont know what all these new features accomplish...i feel like a n00b...somebody explain the newer features?


UwEkKk - register and use one of the other mirrors (not # 1) - that should work.


Is there a reason why the screen shots that I often see of BBSAK show a "Restore Apps" button, but when installed I don't see this button but am instead told that I have to restore apps via the loader? Are the screen shots doctored to illustrate that it has restore functionality or am I missing something?


The new 1.5 version is setup to restore the apps via the loader, however the previous versions have the restore apps button still.


If you are having trouble d/l BBSAK, try using Mirror 2 or Mirror 3. I have used Mirror 2 each time without issue.

When I read this I thought BBSAK had been updated again, I read about 1.5 last sometime last week
