vnbbUtils v2.0.4.1 – Useful Desktop software for Advanced Blackberry Users

Posted on Updated on

Update version v2.0.4.1 and move to my new home 🙂
Go there =>

vnbbUtils is an application based on JavaLoader with friendly GUI and many improvement (such as OTA downloader, IP Modem, Quick Install, remove IT Policy, Create JAD …). From version, vnbbUtils is added multi-language support.


  • IP Modem: only for people who still prefer to use BDM 5.0.0 or lower (BDM 5.0.1 and later have already had IP Modem)
  • Quick Install: After vnbbUtils v2.x installed, you can install the JAD or CODs files directly from Windows Explorer. Just right click on the JAD or COD files (you can select multiple COD files at once), you’ll see an item Install (vnbbUtils) in the system menu. Just click on that item, the selected files will be installed immediately into your BB (of course, BB must be connected to the computer first)
  • Get information of the BB that connected to your computer (automatically detecting BB is connected/disconnected to/from the computer). Providing this information for OTA Downloader and EScreen Activation code generator. Especially, it help OTA Downloader simulate the environment of your BB to download the suitable version of software with your BB (same as you download by BB’s Browser).
  • USB Driver: Install USB Driver for Blackberry. If you have not install BDM yet, Computer can not recognize your BB as an USB Drive. Only click on USB Driver button, that problem have been resolved, BDM free . This driver is only for USB Drive, not for BB device manager, so if you want using full functions of vnbbUtils, install BDM is required.
  • Set Time: Synchronize system time of your BB with computer
  • Reset Blackberry: Reset your Blackberry same as Battery Pull quickly.
  • Factory Reset: remove IT policy.
  • Wipe Device at low-level, this function allow you clear OS before you want to upgrade OS
  • Load OS: this function allow you select exactly which version of OS you want to install into BB, don’t need to uninstall other version, and automatically delete file vendor.xml then run Loader.exe to make sure you can Load OS from any vendor successfully.
  • Read EventLog: read all information in the Event Log, allow you to save as text file on computer
  • Clear EventLog: Delete Event log to release memory space.
  • Clean RAM & Garbage Flash: same as MemoryUp, Memory Booster, but with this function of vnbbUtils, it cleans even more Flash memory
  • Backup / Restore applications, allows easy backup entire 3rd party applications from BB to computer (before Reinstall OS) and restore/reinstall all of them into BB (after Load OS) quickly.
  • Install JAD: lets you install software on computer to BB from the JAD file easily and quickly. Helping people who using old BB model (do not have memory card) can install software normally without opening BDM.
  • Install Cod(s): lets you install software from Cod files to BB directly. But I prefer to using Install from JAD
  • Read system modules:list all installed modules in the BB, including 3rd party Applications and Core OS & Add-on. Allow you to:
    • Save modules. Necessary in case of backup applications or store applications that installed on your BB into computer.
    • Delete unnecessary modules, optimizing memory of your BB or fixed some error that applications conflicted.
  • Screen Capture: capture the current screen of your Blackberry and allows to save images in various formats (PNG, JPG, BMP or Copy to Clipboard). Automatic add watermark for that images, you can customize watermark by yourself (Text, Size, Color, Position). You also make a video stream by recording function.

This feature has been improved superior to other OTA Download utilities, allows you to download from the site that check terminal connect to as Google, Opera Mini, mopipocket … Support download over Proxy, download from indirect link (as OTA Link provide by Mobihand). Downloaded Softwares are stored in folder .\OTA\App_Name. Download OTA really like you do on the BB Browser, lets you download the software for your BB easily.
  • Create ALX file to installed by BDM. Created from JAD file or Cod files that available.
  • Create JAD file to install from SDCard. JAD is created from ALX or Cod files.

BlackBerry Passport: More Strong Reviews (and Converts, too!)

Posted on

Inside BlackBerry

Three weeks ago, the BlackBerry Passport made its debut, and the reviews are still coming in, with more to come as it launches in other regions. Reviewers are discovering for themselves what “being different” can bring to the table, and a few are even having “conversion experiences” where their preconceptions were blown out of the water.

bb passport table

Take the case of Richard Goodwin of smartphone-centric site Know Your Mobile. He writes:

  • “I didn’t want to like this handset. I had A LOT of preconceptions about the way it looked, switching back to a physical keyboard, and having to use BB10 for a week or more for the purpose of this review. Like a lot of people, I’d made my mind up about the Passport without even using it–– and this was wrong. Like all new ideas, once you’ve accustomed yourself to its ways you feel right at home…

Finding the Balance with Your BlackBerry: Work and Play

Posted on Updated on


We now spend more time on our smartphones than with our partner, according to a study by mobile provider O2. And this phenomenon isn’t going away. With advancements in mobile technology, it has never been easier to work on the go. Answering emails and drafting documents does not require an employee to be chained to a desk. However, just because you can work from anywhere doesn’t mean that you should.

“Turning off” is hard to do in this digital age. According to a study by IDC for Facebook, 67.8% of the U.S. population uses a smartphone, and 78% of the activity is spent on email and web browsing.

It is easy to pick up the phone and send a quick email, which proves to be a problem when you are trying to enjoy vacation time and holiday festivities. It is common wisdom that transitioning from vacation back to work is tough. But transitioning from work to play isn’t easy either. It requires letting go of the to-do list – you know, the one that seems like it’s never done. It’s about really being present with the friends and family you probably don’t see enough.

I’m not one for completely disconnecting when on holiday or traveling. I like to keep my BlackBerry handy for all kinds of utilities: travel apps, maps, music, BBM’ing with family and travel buddies. But, the utility of my BlackBerry is different in these times than when I’m at work. The BlackBerry 10 feature that I find myself using quite often is BlackBerry Balance – it separates personal and professional data and apps, so I can take a break and watch a funny video with my little brother instead of checking recent reports. Speaking of reading reports, BlackBerry Hub helps me get up to speed quickly once I return to work after the holiday. I filter emails by account, search, and flag items for follow-up in seconds to stay on top of the game.

What about you? What are your best tips for “turning off” while staying tuned in?

  • 524: An object has been marked as recovered by the Low Memory Manager but it was not freed during a garbage collection. This is only checked in the simulator under the control of the JvmDebugLMM application switch.
