    From MrBlippy, the BB Toolkit developer (copied from his thread at Alldroid):

    What do I do if the Toolkit is missing?
    To fix this, you can open a terminal and execute the 'toolkit -up' command* which will pull down the most current version of the Toolkit. The script, when run from a terminal, is always there as a fail-safe if you should lose the app for any reason.

    Do you have Root Explorer? If so, go to /system/xbin and scroll down to toolkit. Check and see if the permissions are set to rwxr-xr-x. If they're not, tap Mount R/W and long-press on toolkit, select Permissions and check all the boxes under Read, the first box under Write, and all the boxes under Execute. Hit okay, tap Mount R/O and reboot, then type

    su
    toolkit -up

    If the permissions are already set correctly, then I'm out of ideas.

    I just asked MrBlippy if he had any ideas. He said to try it again, because "I broke something on my server tonight and had to reboot it twice. I guess he caught it just at the very moment I was rebooting."

    Ran into he same issue - lost the "extra apps" in BB v.5 after having to clear cache to resolve an issue. Didn't want to go through the process of installing the rom again. Running "toolkit -up" in terminal as root didn't work - would come back saying mrblippy.net was a bad address. The -su switch didn't do anything for me. I did verify the toolkit script had the correct rights too.

    Opened the toolkit script (in /system/xbin/) in vi and in the first few lines I found it was going to a URL of http://mrblippy.net/bbtoolkit/app/BBToolkit.apk (case sensitive). Was able to browse to that URL from my Droid and download the .apk file, then just had to open it & confirm install.

    (depending on your application settings, you may be prompted to change your settings to allow an install from a "non market" source.)
