    Can someone tell me what the difference in these files are

    .cod
    .alx
    .jad

    I have a third party software I downloaded an unziped and it gives me 3 files with the same name but different extensions. Just trying to clear this up to understand which file I should choose to install as a 3rd party s/w on my 8700C model. Thanks!!

    Add the .alx file via desktop manager and that should add your 3rd party software to your device.

    JD,

    The .cod file is the executable that gets installed on the BB. The .alx is the file that provides instructions to install the .cod using desktop manager. And the .jad is the file that provides the instructions to the browser (I assume) for OTA installations.
