Default google maps install with no BIS/BES fails

Please Login to Remove!

blackberry pearl 8100 v4.2.0.64 (yeah, yeah i should upgrade OS)
so i got gmail working pretty easily with no OTA download. which of course i can not do since i don't have BIS and only use the opera browser

i was trying to use the procedure here:
Gmail app 1.5 out!

so i used the userAgent pluggin to get the jad file from here:

it references 3 .cod files

i put them in a .alx file thusly:
<loader version="1.0">
<application id="Gmaps">
<name>Google Maps</name>
<description>mobile gmaps app</description>
<copyright>Copyright (c) 2007 Google</copyright>
<fileset Java="1.0">

java installer said that it installed successfully, and indeed if i open it again i have some apps installed like, opera, gmail, and google maps (google maps for mobile).

but i can not find the app on my phone. it's not in the apps menu.

anyone have ideas? TIA
