Download to your PC, and move your JAD files to your Media Card, create a folder there called "Apps".

On your BB, go to the Media icon > Menu > Explore. Find the application JAD file and click on it to install.

Works well for me, such as with these JAD files.

I never use jar files. I do think I did once and it worked, I just don't recall.

Default Mobile File Manager

Mobile file manager is a Blackberry App that lets you browse all of the files on your blackberry. I tried deleting all of the sample stuff because I was so low on memory and after I installed this app and browsed my devices memory at a file system level I was shocked at what I found. Browse to "device memory" then "samples" and you will see a bunch of folders that contain literally megabytes of junk. I was able to free up a ton off memory, and this app also helps me keep track of any music, Pics, Videos, etc that ends up in my device memory and easily move them to my memory card. It was pretty cheap and definitely worth it.

Default One more thing

I think it's pretty pathetic that blackberry has not addressed this memory issue after numerous complaints all over the web. If they would just update the firmware to allow loading apps on the memory card then we wouldn't have this problem. I mean, it's pretty bad when you determine your application purchasing decisions not by the price of the app but how much precious memory it will consume.
