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:
http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v2.0....GoogleMaps.jad

it references 3 .cod files
http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v2.0....ogleMaps-1.cod
http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v2.0....ogleMaps-2.cod
http://www.google.com/gmm/apps/v2.0....ogleMaps-3.cod

i put them in a .alx file thusly:
<loader version="1.0">
<application id="Gmaps">
<name>Google Maps</name>
<description>mobile gmaps app</description>
<version>2.0.1</version>
<vendor>Google</vendor>
<copyright>Copyright (c) 2007 Google</copyright>
<fileset Java="1.0">
<files>
GoogleMaps-3.cod
GoogleMaps-2.cod
GoogleMaps-1.cod
</files>
</fileset>
</application>
</loader>

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
