AddOnis Now Works With OS 5.0 Standby/Lock Function

addonis Addonis has just released a version specifically for OS 5.0 users that fixes an issue with the Standby/Lock function that was news to me.

As Twinkler explained to me:

In versions prior to OS 5.0, pressing the Mute key put the device into Standby mode, while pressing the Keylock key engaged the Keylock Function. Then came OS 5.0 … in some versions these original functions remain operational…. In other versions this function has been modified (we have confirmed this with RIM).

For example, in OS (Sprint Tour Official) – The Mute key no longer engages Standby mode. It has no function other than to mute the microphone while on a call. The new function is a Combination Standby/Keylock function. As such, all apps that put the device into Standby mode (including previous versions of AddOnis) could not work with the latest OS 5.0 versions.

With the latest version of AddOnis they have managed to figure out a way to put the device into this new “Hybrid” standby/lock mode. They have also built in backwards compatibility so users can specify which mode they want for their particular flavor of OS 5.0. There have been a few other bug fixes but you can get the latest 5.0 compatible version at this link in the store.

  1. Mute key functionality in BlackBerry Device Software version 5.0


    The Lock icon is missing from the home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone

  2. I installed this on my 9700 yesterday and shortly after that the backlight on my BB would just randomly go on! I did battery pulls and everything else but it just wouldn’t stop- Backlight goes on for no reason- no incoming calls or anything. I removed AddOnis and the backlight issue stopped. Any thoughts?

  3. There is a great number of functionality in this singular that someone would end up paying dozens of dollars for in several apps. I need the “mute” fix.
