    Help getting AIM on the Bold.

    Advertisement



    OK so we know there have been work arounds to get RIM AIM on all the blackberries now. I have followed the directions and such from crackberry but I always get an error when trying to install it with DM. It says no applications found for this device. Help please!!

    What do you mean it doesnt show on the screen? And I read where you talked about changing the vendor number to 102, but I dont see where to do that in the ALX file for AIM. Theres no vendor number in there.

    Change every Vendor ID from 100, to your bold vendor ID

    The aim application is installed on my bold, but it doesnt appear on my screen meaning the icon isnt there, in download, applications no where

    Then how do you use it? Ive seen people post screen shots of AIM on their home screen. And this is the alx of aim before or after its installed on your phone? because the alx file looks nothing like that for the aim I downloaded.
