    Made a theme.. I want to install it OTA instead of through desktop manager

    How do I do that? I have webspace, so that's not an issue...

    I was successfully able to install the theme using desktop manager, but I'd like to do it OTA, as I'm going to be deploying it to a few our out other BlackBerry users.

    Thanks!

    Hi sna77,

    This may help.

    To enable ota install on your web site look over the below text and it should help you understand what is needed in order to host ota files.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>
    the .jad file is the starting point that you post as the link for people to point to with the BB browser. You'll also need to place all the .cod files onto the server. The .jad file is a package listing of all the files the OTA action will need to download-- so after you make .jad file set, do not change any filenames because they are all encoded in the .jad file. The number of .cod files depends on how many graphic elements your particular theme has. Some of mine had 4 and some had 10 .cod files.

    the server needs to have some things enabled. I know that Apache servers are the preferred ones. You also need a file to tell the server how to handle requests. This is a .htaccess file. Note there is nothing preceeding the initial "dot" in the filename. The file needs to have this contents (build with a text-only editor like Notepad):

    AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
    AddType application/vnd.rim.cod cod
    AddType application/java-archive jar
    AddType audio/adpcm adp

    This file needs to be in every folder you create on the server with .jad and .cod files. Again, the file name is everything inside the quotes ".htaccess".

    I have also found that you must use the OTA installation of the Theme Reader application for OTA themes to work. Seems like a bug but I repeated it in testing. So, upload them too and place a link for users to grab them.

    the active link is to the themename.jad file
