Default Download BBLight/BBWeather/BBToday/BBReply binaries (GPL source code included!)

Here's the BlackBerryTools binaries again!

For others interested:
- the story of what happened
- source code information
- substitutes and alternatives to BBTools


Edit: bbCorrector has now been added. I hereby uphold GNU General Public License, by doing a favour to the public, by legally re-releasing BlackBerryTools.

Enter this web address into your BlackBerry for wireless over-the-air downloads:
BlackBerryTools OTA
Or if you prefer to install via BlackBerry Desktop, download any one of the below:

BBLight: Allows you to set the screen backlight to stay on under certain conditions, i.e. charging, time of day, etc.
BBReply: Allows you to show a different reply to address on your emails. (This is now done in BIS and this app doesn't work on newer devices.)
BBToday: A Today screen with customizable fields for weather, stocks, email info, etc.
BBWeather: Allows you to quickly check current weather and forecasts for locations you specify.
BBCorrector: A spell checking application.

Edit 2/23/09 by MrKyoo: There are two versions, one for OS 4.2 and above (without WiFi) and one for OS versions 4.3 and above (with WiFi). The OTA link should hopefully autodirect you to the correct download for your OS and the desktop install contains a folder for each version.

Desktop Install

Also, there is an alpha version available which will always be updated with whatever version I am currently using/testing/debugging on my own device.
BBWeather Alpha Releases

The weather portion of BBToday has been updated, as well, and the new version can be downloaded OTA by pointing your BB's browser to: (or a desktop manager install is attached below.)

Edit 2/24/2009 by John Clark: BBLight has received another update as well, thanks to Tateu on this forum. The new 1.93 version can be downloaded OTA by pointing your BB's browser to: (or the Desktop Manager version is attached below. Instructions and information on this new version can be found here.)

The older versions of BBLight can be found here.
