BlackBerry Master Control Program Version 0.9.3.0 Beta 6 Review

Comments

BlackBerry Master Control Program (MCP) is a power tool that allows you to easily load/save/erase any module you want, take screenshots of your device, turn the radio on or off, synchronize the time on your device to your PC, reset to factory settings (remove IT policies), perform a handheld wipe, optimize (in real time) or install any BlackBerry OS. The latest version is 0.9.3.0 Beta 6 and it’s truly a handy piece of software. The software bills itself as being made for “moderate to advanced” users and I would put myself closer to the moderate end of the scale. Bear this in mind when reading the review.

User Interface

When you boot up MCP, it’s a little overwhelming. The menu structure of MCP is quite unique, with 15 icons that can be toggled with either a left, right or middle click. It’s an interesting approach but I find it’s not the most efficient. It’s not easy to remember what each icon represents, let alone the corresponding mouse action. In general, the menu structure and navigation is really text-based, and that slows down the software. To address this issue, MCP has included shortcut keys. If you right click the MCP tray icon you will see a menu that shows all of the hotkeys for navigation. Personally, I still find these hotkeys difficult to remember, but they definitely help. With a more visual UI and navigation system, everything could be done a lot faster.

To view the list of hotkeys, see the MCP site.

    After Friday I should have learned my lesson about misleading titles, but I guess I haven’t. Technically, Master Control Program (MCP) is not free, it’s donationware. So if you like the software, you should give the developer a little something for his immense troubles.

    BlackBerry Master Control Program is a tool for BlackBerry that allows you to easily load/save/erase any module you want, take screenshots of your device, turn the radio on or off, synchronize the time on your device to your PC, reset to factory settings (remove IT policies), perform a handheld wipe and many other tasks.

    MCP can perform all possible combinations of Java Loader commands and options via an intuitive yet easy to use 32-bit Windows GUI (graphical user interface.

    MCP offers a full GUI for managing and optimizing any BlackBerry operating system that is installed on your computer, including the ability to install a selected OS without having to uninstall other OS’s first. All selections/operations are performed in real time and the GUI provides instant “live” feedback on the current state of the OS you are preparing to install. You can switch between MCP and CrackMem with no adverse effects.

    MCP is now 100% compatible with Windows Vista/7 User Account Control (UAC) using the requireAdministrator method.
