    Re: jar games

    hey guys i dont think we can put "JAR" games in out BB.. they have to be "COD" or 'ALX" format... just to let you guys know.. i had the same problem also..

    Acually you can use games in jar format. COD and ALX have to use the DM to load. JAR/JAD files are OTA installs.

    There is a workarround for OTA installation.
    Save the JAR / JAD files to your memory card.
    Use media manager, explore, browse to the jar / jad file, select it and if it shows the download window it was successfull. This works on pearl 8100 atleast.

    Regarding the ALX / COD files kolosus is correct, you have to use DM Application Installation to install.

    Re: jar games

    I have tried this method...
    I actually get the same error as i would if i installed it OTA.
    Apparently some .jar files are just not supported by the BB Pearl

    Yes. Not all jar games are designed for the BB. Many will even load but wont work because they dont know where the left and right convenience keys are on a berry. (They aren't. They are for "traditional" phones)
