    I've found some free games I want on my phone. The only problem is they download as jar or jad files. What do I do w/ that? I only know how to load regular applications thru the DM. (Can'tcha tell I'm a newbie?!)

    HELP!

    Jar/Jad files are usually DL OTA(Over the air) if you point your BB browser to those sites you can DL those games or apps directly to your phone

    You can also copy the Jar/Jad file to your media card using your PC then goto the media icon on your phone click it> then click your BB menu button and select explor. You then find the file you just copied there and select it. It will then start to auto install


    Hope that helps

    I put Klondike onto my media card, along w/ 2 others. When I try to open it, I get the error message. I don't want to ota bc I don't have the package.

    'And yes, I got my bb up & running!!! Only prob is the mic's not working now. Think I might have messed it up during disassembly.

    You have to unzip the jar file and open the manifest file in notepad and fix the descriptor cause its not made for your device. Send the apps to my hotmail account found in my profile and ill try to fix them.
