Tashanna let me know that Lyricidal has released a slick new tool called Create-A-JAD. It essentially lets you just drag over the COD files you wish to install and it will walk you through creating a JAD file for OTA installation. It will also help with creating a ALX file for desktop installs or a .bat file for Javaloader installs. This is nothing you could not do with a simple text editor if you knew what you were doing but this sure does simplify it!
You can find the ZIP download for the app at this link.
- Enter information requested (All are required except for description)
- Drag and drop all the files needed for your app install into the white box under Files.
- If you haven’t already, enter the filename (no extension) and choose what type of install you need: .JAD is for OTA, .ALX is for Desktop Install, and Both does both of them.
- Click Create It!
- Enjoy your new OTA/Desktop Install!
Get Your OTA Up and Running
- Upload all .cods required, the .jad, and the .htaccess file created to your webspace
- Keep in mind for OTA installs you will need a .htaccess file in the directory specifying the MIME types for OTA installers like:
AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor .jad
AddType application/vnd.rim.cod .cod
- Go to the link to your .jad file from your phone
- Install away!
To Use In Desktop Install
- Copy and paste the created .alx file in your OS’s folder (ie. 9530-v188.8.131.52_P184.108.40.206)
- Copy and paste the .cod files into the Java folder (if you checked that box when creating the .alx) or into the same OS folder as step 1 (if you left the checkbox unchecked)
- Install using AppLoader (Loader.exe) or Desktop Manager
Let us know how it works for you!September 21, 2009 at 4:59 PM #181360
Seems like a good app… what’s the difference between this app and the OTA loader? I’ve been using the OTA loader for some time now… are there any advantages from using this app??September 21, 2009 at 5:01 PM #181361
I am responding to one of your earlier posts.
That Blackberry flip phone mascot you saw looks like a female. It is not as bad a job as you may think. Mascots get a lot of breaks. It’s a workout for sure and professional mascots get paid between 22 and 35 dollars per hour.September 21, 2009 at 5:07 PM #181362
No real difference since all these ways get the app on your device. This is just a toolSeptember 21, 2009 at 5:08 PM #181363
Download link doesn’t work for me. Can someone please post a mirror?September 21, 2009 at 5:08 PM #181364
How did you know it was a female? That pays damn well!September 21, 2009 at 5:30 PM #181365
I tried many ways many times, and just always get this response each time: “Slow Down! You are trying to download files too quickly. You must wait 9 seconds before you may download another file.” Yes I am waiting, but always get the same result.September 21, 2009 at 6:58 PM #181366
Same here…September 21, 2009 at 7:28 PM #181367
Now it works. Thanks to whomever fixed this!
