    If you are doing it on the computer, you extract the files form the .zip or .rar file and then add it to the "Application Loader" through the Desktop Manager. It'll read what is on your phone, then you add file, find the program, then keep clicking next.

    The program will show up in Options, Advanced Options.. and it'll be in there.

    Install desktop Manager From Rim, Set it up and the option on the left most spot is the app loader, you can install uninstall applications and upgrade firmware through there. if you need any help you can find in in a number of places on the forums or you can PM me

    i have installed it, and i have even managed to move over a couple of short media files i already had on my computer as ringtones, but thats all i have been able to do. i just tried downloading it straight on the BB as OTA and i cant find it in options. i dont know what step im either missing or messing up as far as downloading from site, unzipping, then getting it transferred to the BB

    did you use application loader to load the color pearl program?

    try a reboot/battery pull for the OTA file. did it ask you to download the file?

    Re: Completely new...:(

    ok, how far are you getting in the process?

    1) download the zip file
    2) unzip/extract the files (.alx and .cod)...be sure you remember where you save them
    3) plug bb in to usb cord
    4) open DM - wait for bb to connect
    5) double click application loader
    6) click next and find .alx file and continue to follow wizard

    welcome to pinstack btw

    what do you mean it can't find the file. is it saying 'no other applications for your device were found'...or something like that?

    what version DM are you using and where did you get it

    version 4.2.0.14....and got it from ebay brand new


    and yes it was just the languages, and it finally started up but said something about timing out and couldnt find some sort of app. is it going to take that long to load each time now just because i removed languages i dont need?

    ok, so what exactly did you do? you launced DM, double clicked app loader and unchecked the languages to be deleted - did you add anything else to go with it? then clicked next for the wizard to run?
