    posting ota

    Advertisement



    I searched for a FAQ on this and couldn't find one. How do you post an ota link. When I export a jad file I get like 5 other files with it. What do I do with all those. Seems more complicated than attaching an alx file to a post.

    It is...you have to take all the exported files and have them hosted by site. Its easier to just post the alx files lol
    This is my Blackberry. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me my Blackberry is useless. Without my Blackberry I am useless.

    This is from observation and may not be totally correct, but I think it's close.

    OTA installations require a JAD or JAR file. A JAD file is a text file which defines what other files (typically COD files) are needed. They are then downloaded and installed. A JAR file is a compressed file like a Zip file that contains all the files needed, and is self extracted and installed once downloaded.

    To post a JAD and it's COD files, the host server must be configured to support the file types and actions required for these files.

    If all you have is the ALX and COD files, these are typically distributed as a single Zip file, and require Desktop Manager to be installed. As such, these are downloaded to a computer - not the BlackBerry.

    The question is how do I set up an OTA link using all the files I get from my jad export?

    It tells you how to do it if you have your own webserver (which I dont) so my question now is can I do it on pinstack?

    Yes, I believe you have to arrange it through a mod.

    Yes you can, just PM Cheri with the info and request to do so and she will send you out instructions to host OTA here at Pinstack.
