Default OTA Theme Creation Help

Please Login to Remove!

Hey, ive done a few searches but cant figure out what the problem is.

Ive made a few themes and wanted to upload them to share, but I cant seem to get an OTA download to work.

I exported all the theme as a JAD file, and it came out with 11 files:

Now I uploaded them all to a directory, and when I open my BB browser and type in the link it says: "The item you selectrct cannot be displayed. Do you wish to save the item? Yes or No". When I click NO it says "Unsupported media type: application/octet-stream"

What am i doing wrong?

Do you have a web server? You need one in order to host OTA themes. If you need the files hosted PM me and i'll host them for you.

What are you doing when you upload the themes? For it to work you need to have the .jad and all of the .cod files in the same directory. That way when you navigate to and open the themename.jad file on your blackberry it should work.
