    OTA files generally need to be hosted on the web, and are installed through your BB browser. To install a program from your SD card is a bit more complicated, you also need the cod file or files.

    Ok so you have the jad file and the cod files? You need to copy them to your SD card you can use Mass Storage Mode, and treat your device like a flash drive. You must copy both the jad file AND any related cod files. Then on your device, open up the Files icon which is probably under the applications folder. HOWEVER the best way to install an OTA is actually over the air from a hosted web site.

    Oh, OK, well that I don't know, but I would imagine you would need a java development package. To create an installable program like that you would need a compiler program, it's a VERY advanced topic.

    Well unless you BUILD themes, you can not make an OTA, unless you have the THMs. files of that theme, and to make it OTA you still will need FTP service in order to Download onto your BB. If you have any svg. files you will need to have Blackberry Plasmic SDK Developers content, in order to open the THMs, once you have done that export the files to a Desktop version, or a jad file which is the file you load up onto an ftp server for the OTA. Once you have done all this then you can Download that OTA from your Blackberry. Hope this helps.
