    Oh my god. Ive done it! Got Pipes on and working using Desktop manager and a downloaded jad/jar file on my pearl.

    Instructions Step by step

    Download the jad/jar file onto your desktop.
    Check it has the right extension by right click and check properties on the file. The download might need unziping.
    Connect your blackberry to Desktop Manager
    Open your Media Manager application in Desktop Manager
    In the right hand windowMake a new folder in My Blackberry/Device Memory/Games
    Using the right side of your media manager copy your JAD/JAR files into the folder.

    You must follow EXACTLY these instructions

    Open the Media application on the blackberry
    press the right button next to the trackball
    Click explore
    Track down to Device Memory
    press the right button next to the trackball
    Click Open
    Track down to your /Games Folder
    press the right button next to the trackball
    Click Open
    Select the JAR file
    Select "Download"

    The Application will load on to your blackberry and is noe available in your application menu.

    I've also found using this method that I can load to my media card games/HTML files/Text files/PDF and read them but you must the EXPLORE,OPEN menus to see them otherwise the pearl does not see the files.

    Best of luck!

    Sorry I meant the menu button LEFT of the trackball

    BTW......

    There are loads of 8100 compatiable games on mobilerated.com

    Good luck again!! I'm off to find a treo owner and have a good laugh at them!

    Love my Pearl!

    I'm using T-Mobile 4.2.0.64 and I can't get anything to install like this. What OS are you all using?

    The new Italy Tim downloaded off this web site. v 4.2.1.66

    This download also gave me the morning repeat alarm. Seeing I have to wake for 4am this alone was enough to download the upgrade.

    Oh yes it also got rid of autodim which I hated.

    The "download" is an option as you open the jar file and the pearl ask automatically "download" or cancel". It really should just pop up. Check your version of software I think you need at least 4.2

    Re: convert .jar / .jad files to .alx / .cod files

    I have 4.2.064. All that happens when I get to my games folder and select the jar file and click on it with the trackwheel is that it says "unable to display file ...(path and filename). I was thinking I was wrong doing it form the media card so i copied 2-3 files in the device memory and tried again, but same result. Is it possible that these are all incompatible files that I'm trying???
    Help me please - I have about 194 jar files for games and am willing to share them with you. But what's the point if they are not compatible. Actually what kind of message do you guys get when the file is incompatible?

    Hi Not all jar files are compatiable (I'm no authority but I have tried some other Jars and not been so lucky) No Nokia I've tried work - but I only wanted some simple games to play in a queue or at the airport. Suduko, Pipes, Pacman, Tetris and Galactic attack are fine for me.


    Best not to click but use the menus to open. Best of Luck. If anyone finds a JAR Pearl game site other than mobilerated please let me know.

    I have tried it myself and i do not have the download link on the last step and i have 4.2.0.73 OS. I have tried it on my device memory and the media card and i get to the last step and all i get is Unable to display file. So anyone one got any ideas. Would be nice to have Bomber on the phone. Thanks.
