Default Help, please!

Sorry if this is in the wrong place >.>"

Any how, I have a file that is 817.1KB and am trying to install it. It says "insufficient space for application."

I went under Settings>Media Card and I have 223.7MB free space.

What can I do to get enough space to install my app?

Or if this is enough space, why is it saying there is not enough?

It is a .jar I made from a gameboy emulator file. I transfered it using Mass Storage onto my media card, so it would be on my media card, not the device. Shouldn't it abide by the rules of the media card?

no. it needs to be installed on the berry to run. you will need the .jar and .jad to install it. the other option is to compile it as a .cod/.alx and add it using the desktop manager

Drag them to your memory card and browse to them to install. If you get an error about space, you need to clean up some memory

I did that, and now it is still saying the space error, but it says that it takes up 1MB
So shouldn't I be able to install if there is 200 something megabytes open??

While you might be able to install the app FROM the Media card, you cannot install the app TO the media card. So the amount of free space on the card is irrelevant.

So what's your File Free. Go to Options > Status and read the 3rd line.

I have 12535105 free bytes.


By the way, I tried moving the JAR file to the system memory, but I got an error that said file system full.

That's pretty low. Anytime you get at or below 12 000 000, you run the risk of having problems with the device. First do a battery pull with the device turned on and see if the number goes up. Then search for the threads that discuss how to free up memory on the device.

And moving the JAR to the device memory is not the way to install applications. Go back to the site from where you downloaded it and read their installation instructions.

Well I didn't get it from a site. I used MeBoyBuilder to create a jar and a jad. I put both onto my media card. I moved the files onto my device memory, clicked on the jar, then hit download. Now it will start downloading, but right before it finishes, it fails. It says
"907 Invalid JR output file: MeBoy.cod data section too large: 66828 bytes"

So if I free up space, should I be able to get it to work?

(I did a battery and now I have 6554735 Bytes)

EXTREMELY low memory. Been losing any emails and messages lately?
