OK now we're getting closer!
The 'get online' initial screen does not work correctly; if you choose 'Misc' then nothing loads under Dicts below. In fact, it seems like if you change the default option (German) to anything else, nothing works anymore to get the dicts online. Even if you change to Misc, then back to German the German is now broken - no Dicts show to choose. It seems very broken. :(
So, I downloaded I2E and E2I (Spanish/English) from here: http://stardict.sourceforge.net/Dictionaries_misc.php
...untar/bzipped to <SDCard>/dict/ and then ungzipped i2e.dict.dz and e2i.dict.dz and now it's all finally working. I can look up words, but...
I get many, many, many security popups from my device for reading content from the local SD card that it's very unusable - I have to click 'Yes' maybe 40 or 50 times to use the application! We really need to have this app signed for it to be used on newer devices (the older 4.2.0 and lower OSes don't have all these popups, it's new with OS 4.2.2.x+ -- much more strict security controls).
Thanks, at least it's working! That's a good step. I would make this page on your website at the very top, and make the title:
Q: "Where can I download Dict files?"

Q: "Where do I put downloaded Dict files?"
A: Uncompress the downloaded .tar.bz file with 7-Zip to <SDCard>/dict/ folder on your BlackBerry. Mac and Linux users can use "tar -jxf <file name>" from a Terminal window to uncompress.
