    .jad files on 8310



    i have a folder for jar jad files on my media manager. jars work fine, but when i go to media on my bb, and do the explore/device manager/jad/jar folder, the jad is in the list, it gives me the option to dl, but it always comes up an error 907. invalid cod file or whatever. jars always work, how do i fix this ?

    i see JAD files posted all the time, and people replying that the programs posted as JAD work on their devices, but i cant figure out the jad thing. do u have to convert jad to cod or alx or is there a simple method?

    im trying to install the flipside beta on one of today's posts, if anyone knows how to make jad files work on the curve, please reply.

    Re: .jad files on 8310

    seriously? is that a joke, or was that under the assumption that the first two wiki links even had a page, because neither do on my end when i click the links. the third link is completely greek to me.

    all im asking is how to get the JAD to download without the error. JARs download fine.. it seems other people on the thread for the flipside beta mp3 player had it working i just dont know how.

    wasnt trying to get schooling on what those files are and how they relate.

    Settle down...links are fixed

    JADs are only the packages they don't contain any info or the cod file...reason you get the error.

    JARS are basically a zip file for the web.

    You don't need to get so defensive.

    In short your jads won't work unless you use OTA where the jar file is accessible.

    It's like alx to cod or cue to bin files....you need both of them for it to work

    sorry if i sound defensive when i type. im not hostile it just appears that way. i type fast, and dont think about what people are reading. apologies again.

    ok so my question now would be when there are links to JAD files such as ex. flipside.jad
    what are people doing to get the rest of it? i hit those links and only get a dl of the jad.

    i figured there was some association with another file since it came up missing, i am just confused and pretty new to the bb world.

    thanks. ill try and remember my typing etiquette next time.

    ok dont i feel humbled and stupid.

    i didnt realize those were ota links and when u hit the link on this site it just dl's the jad file. pointing the browser to that link enables the other files to be dl'd ota.


    jesus, my add gets the best of me.

    You need to use your BB browser and download them that way. OTA(Over the Air)

    Then if you click on the link the with the BB browser then will prompt and download the jar.
