Default How to jad/jar without OTA

Please Login to Remove!

I have a blackberry pearl 8100. I dont have a data plan and so cant do OTA installs. I have some programs in jad/jar format and want to install them... How can I do so? I can connect the pearl to my computer with the cable and have the DM installed. I have the latest version that I downloaded not too long ago and I also have bluetooth... Any suggestions? Thanks.

a search "jad convert" would have shown
HOWTO: Manually convert .jad/.jar to .cod if you cant do OTA

Sorry. Thanks for pointing that out to me... Is there an option B? That one seems way too complicated.
