Default using Javaloader

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway for javaloader to run without having to install the BlackBerry desktop manager?
If so, what are the minimum files needed (i.e. rimusb.sys, rimserial.sys) from the desktop manager suite??

You may be able to just install the latest Handhel software.

Technically, you may be able to install any Desktop Software and have it work.
All you really need is the drive, and as the HH OS install should allow you to use AppLoader Lite, it may install the device driver as well.

Try it out.

Time out - Javaloader is a DOS program. It needs NOTHING ELSE to run. You don't need drivers. You don't need Desktop Manager.

Just be aware that if you use Javaloader to wipe out your BB, you WILL need Desktop Manager to reload the OS.

Proceed with caution.

NJBlackBerry, I hate to argue, but I disagree.


It has been years sinse I used JavaLoader for anythnig but taking screenshots, but I am sure that the driver is needed.

I just tried with my 4.2 device on a PC that I just installed Windows XP on, and JavaLoader said:
"C:\New Folder>JavaLoader.exe -u deviceinfo
RIM Wireless Handheld Java Loader
Copyright 2001-2004 Research In Motion Limited
Connecting to device...Error: unable to open port"


In Windows Device Manager, I see under 'Other Devices', 'BlackBerry'.

This could be only with 4.2 devices, as I have no other devices here with me.

Okey dokey. Been using Javaloader since its predecessor, programmer, which was for the non Java devices.

I understand the possible confusion. That's why i tested it myself to make sure I was right before I replied to you :D
