    Cannot Install to Pearl

    Advertisement



    I just got a Pearl and I am trying to install two programs to it, through the Desktop Manager; pacman and the trackball color changer. When I click "Add" for either program's .alx file, I get the same error message: "No additional applications designed for your device were found."

    Any ways to fix this? I downloaded programs that said they were for the Pearl.

    Just so you know . . . there is no trackball color changer that works for the pearl . . . yet.

    Sorry...not correct...

    ColorPearl only works on 8100 series. Perhaps you were thinking of the curve? (which does not have the multi color LEDs behind the trackball)...

    And the OP most likely needs to install the device OS on their desktop to correct the no additional applications error....

    And dedtried....welcome to the stacks!

    Re: Cannot Install to Pearl

    Lavagirl: I checked the thread that you referenced and the newest OS update is for Alltel. I checked Verizon's page and I have the most current OS version for the system. I'm worried about bricking my phone.

    Gary: How do I install the OS to my desktop? Do I need to just download and install it?

    Thanks for the welcome and help all.

    Re: Cannot Install to Pearl

    Just a thought - this is simple but I've had the problem and the solution for me was to high-light (click on) the program I wanted to add and click "add" in the DM. Have you tried that or have you solved the problem from one of the above suggestions?

    sort of correct, to explain properly, there is no way to change the track ball color on the 8130 since there are no color leds, the 8100 PEARL can

    Re: Cannot Install to Pearl

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~for all.....ColorPearl is an OTA download only!! The easiest way to distinguish which way an app is downloaded (IMO) is the file type: .alx & .cod are usually desktop installation, .jar & .jad are OTA.....someone correct me if I'm wrong, don't wanna mis direct somone!!
