I don’t know if any of you have been having problems with SoftReset since your upgrade to OS 4.5. I know I was sure bummed out when I upgraded and found out that my most commonly used application didn’t work. Stupid “Uncaught exception java.lang.Illegal Argument Exception” error!
So today I ran into this post from PinStack regarding the problem. It doesn’t look like it has worked for everyone, but it worked for me so I thought that it was worth sharing.
You need to modify the permissions for the “Email Setup Application” so that they all say “Allow” you do this by going into: Options – Advanced Options – Applications- scroll down to “Email Setup Application” click the menu button and select “Edit Default Permissions” and change all of them so that they say “Allow”. Go back to the main screen, making sure to save your changes, and try SoftReset. Hopefully it works for all of you as it did for me!
If it doesnt work for you, please post a comment with your OS Version, BlackBerry Model and Carrier, and I will pass it along!
