    Installing Apps to 8100

    Advertisement



    Right. First off I am using..

    OS X 10.4.9
    BB Pearl 1800
    Parallels with XP Pro SP2

    I have installed the BB software on the XP install, and can connect to the BB. Have synced etc all very nicely. However, when I want to add a program it crashes. I get to the "Connecting to the device(JVM) screen and it just hangs. Been hung for 15 mins now. Is this normal or am I missing a setting somewhere?

    Can you tell us what you are trying to install? Is there an OTA version of the software?

    Hi beko, you dont have to use BB DM under parallels. Please download pocketmac from BB website. you can install app from pocketmac. As far as I know, you only need DM under windows (VIA PC!!) if you want to:

    1. upgrade your OS.
    2. Backup your handheld, especially email and text msg.

    But, if you need to update/backup your phone book, pocket mac is enough. Anyway, I never succeed in syncing or anything like that between my Pearl and DM in Parallels.
    If you use pocketmac, connect your Pearl to Mac with USB, then run pocket mac, click the BB icon on pocket mac, look for its status, if available and your pin appears then you are in the right track. Then, click utilities on top of the screen, the option to install software will appears. Only software in alx and cod that can be installed via pocket mac (if I'm not mistaken).. Good Luck

    Hello -tom-
    I do not have "utilities" on top of screen on Pocketmac 4.0.2. How do you install apps to your BB?

    Hi DocGo, I'm using PocketMac 1.0.9 now. I think the utilities should be there, near the 'apple' sign. The sign that if you want to turn off your Mac..

    I have 1.09 and can confirm its there... Click here to download the latest

    (My option is grayed out cause my BB isn't currently connected, if it was, it would be a selectable option!)

    Ah, now I see. I thought it was in the silver-gray panel where the Bb icon, .mac icon and sync icon were located. I am new to Mac so have to re-train my eyes. Thank you very much for pointing this out.
