Backing up BlackBerry 3rd party applications with DM6

August 2, 2010

This is a tutorial of how to back up your 3rd party applications using DM6 (leaked by @ssjason) using Win7 via Parallels Desktop.

Open DM6 and connect your device, once it recognizes your device select “Switch devices…” from the Device drop down box.

Click the device that you have attached to DM6

Check the box next to “Third-party applications” and click next.

The next two screen shots are of the processes that it will go through while backing up the 3rd party applications.

Once the back up has completed select cancel.

Next go to your C: drive and in the search bar type in your PIN to the device that you just backed up the 3rd party applications and hit enter. You want to copy the file from C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local\Temp and save it where you want.

The screen shot is from the file that was saved and you can see all the cod’s to your applications. You can use this same file to restore your 3rd party applications.

I hope this has helped at least one person. Any questions or thoughts please leave a comment.

When I get time I will do a tutorial on how to restore your 3rd party applications using DM6.

  1. Thanks; I tried searching but couldn’t find it.

    I used the following after looking at your post:


    or just type in %appdata% into the file explorer address bar and locate the directories from there.

    Anyways, good post, thanks!
