    From what I understand to install those files you must download them OTA.

    You have to use your BB browser and go there or concert the files. There's a thread that's a mini FAQ up top there should directions and links in there.

    Sorry - my mistake! I thought I saw a thread around here that gave instructions for installing these files in your situation - I will check around again. In the meantime - I am not sure what games thee are or where you got the,m but - if you can obtain the zip file or the alx and cod files for these games you can install with the Desk Top Manager - no browser needed!

    Re: Install .jar or .jad files on my pearl

    Ok - I found this post.....

    Re: jad files & roxio media
    you can downlaod and install jad files other than OTA. I am copy/pasting the instructions here:

    [FONT=Verdana]Download the jad/jar file onto your desktop.
    Check it has the right extension by right click and check properties on the file. The download might need unzipping.
    Connect your Blackberry to Desktop Manager
    Open your Media Manager application in Desktop Manager
    In the right hand window make a new folder in My Blackberry/Device Memory/Games
    Using the right side of your media manager copy your JAD/JAR files into the folder.

    You must follow EXACTLY these instructions

    Open the Media application on the blackberry
    Press the left button next to the trackball
    Click explore
    Track down to Device Memory
    Press the left button next to the trackball
    Click Open
    Track down to your /Games Folder
    Press the right button next to the trackball
    Click Open
    Select the JAR file
    Select "Download"

    The Application will load on to your Blackberry and is now available in your application menu.

    I've also found using this method that I can load to my media card games/HTML files/Text files/PDF and read them but you must use the EXPLORE, OPEN menus to see them otherwise the Pearl does not see the files.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana]I have done this previously and installed and played some cool games on my Pearl![/FONT]

    Ramses....

    I am not able to check this on my 8100 right now. Confirm please that you cannot create a new folder in Desktop Manager>Media Manager with your pearl connected, correct?
    What version of Dektop manager are you using? Also - did you download it or install from the disk (you need to DL - there have been lots of problems with the DM on the CD's)

    In the mini FAQ there's a link to 3 different threads on how to get jar and jad files onto your pearl with out a data plan. There's even a thread that has a little batch file to convert the from jad or jar to alx and cod files. If you would have taken the time to read then you would have noticed the links. I guess not.
