    HELP!!! Launcherpro has hijacked my phone!!!!!

    My phone locked up after a call, so i rebooted. When I rebooted, the phone came up on the browser saying "launcherpro has expired, please go to www.launcherpro.com to update". When I attempt to do that, it gives me a "404: Forbidden" error. I cannot get back to my home screen. I even tried a restore, which took me back to BB 0.5, and i got the same thing!!!!! Anybody have a clue how I can get my phone back????

    Guess you shouldn't have ignored the message you've been getting for the past five days saying launcherpro is about to expire.

    I'm sure there's probably an easier way, but you could always wipe and reinstall.

    Troho, please edit your post for language. Just starring out letters doesn't prevent it from potentially being offensive.

    You ignored the warning. You must now deal with the results. If you do not like how the dev has built this product you have every right to contact said dev and complain. May I suggest boycotting this product in the future?

    You will have to do something to bypass the app. This will probably require a full wipe, or at least a boot into safe mode. No guarantee safe mode will work, however.

    How can I boot into safe mode? I'm trying to salvage most of the info w/o loosing it during a full wipe. I have GDE saved on her SD card.

    Edited, and my apologies. And believe me, I won't be using Launcherpro again!

    No problem. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Another option would be flashing a ROM that doesn't use Launcher Pro as the launcher -- if it's not the main launcher for the ROM you're on you might be able to flash it over it without a problem.
