Default how to install a *.COD program (no alx for DM)

Please Login to Remove!

hello all

i have a COD file and i want to install it on my 8100. the problem is that i don't have the *.alx version of that file (BBM only allaws me to install *.alx files)

how do i create the alx file of a cod. i got hold of net_rim_font_semitic.cod which should give the ability to read arabic\hebrew text.

the simulator allaws my to load the COD files just fine

- Extract the attached file (JavaLoader.exe) to C:\Windows\System32
- Put the COD file you have on your Desktop
- Click on Start then Run and type CMD and click OK
- Type: cd Desktop
- Type: javaloader -u load <filename>

You will also need the following two files for Arabic:
net_rim_tid_dynamic_transcoding_data_CP1255.cod
net_rim_tid_dynamic_transcoding_data_CP1256.cod

FWIW, if you are trying to load these COD files from the Simulator to a real device, they won't work.

FWIW, moreso, if you simply want to load these, the BlackBerry.alx file that comes with all device software has them listed (if Multilanguage version - look for 8100M as the start of the filename; 8100C will only include APAC language support (Chinese, Korean, etc)). If the files aren't physically present, place them in the Java directory within the device software installation path.

hello

i am new to this and i am having issues

" cd desktop"
this gives me an error that it cant find the path. but that should be a big deal

" javaloader -u load <filename>"

this gives me "connecting to the device" (do i need the device to be connected now) message and then it just exits without creating any alx files anywhare in the drive.

the alx of the file does not exist i guess i will have to create them

"You will also need the following two files for Arabic:
net_rim_tid_dynamic_transcoding_data_CP1255.cod
net_rim_tid_dynamic_transcoding_data_CP1256.cod"

so to add arabic support i need to create the alx of the three files. and add them from the applications loader from BBM. this should pretty much add arabic support to any BB. is that right?

turned out that i made a silly mistake.

i did infact manage to upload the three files to the device with javaloader:
net_rim_font_semitic.cod
net_rim_tid_dynamic_transcoding_data_CP1255.cod
net_rim_tid_dynamic_transcoding_data_CP1256.cod

after each transfer of every file, i notice that that the BB(8700 on 4.2.1.66 OS) reboots

after all this the BB still did not work with arabic. i still get squares instead of characters when i view my arabic SMS messages.

do i need to do something else (for example add fonts to the device)?

the problem is that arabic(reading)is only avalable in old roms that lack key features. i've herd several claims that some people were able to add hebrew or rusain support by loading the sematic font. i did that but arabic (and hebrew) were still not not working

Default I'm not even getting that far :cry:

Hi Folks,

I think I have a related issue, but I'm not even getting as far as you all seem to have done. I'm trying to load a .cod file onto my 8700c, and it seems to look ok on the PC end, but it puts my device into an unhappy state (see below).

Heres what I'm doing:

> javaloader -usb load helloworld.cod

RIM Wireless Handheld Java Loader
Copyright 2001-2006 Research In Motion Limited
Connected
Loading helloworld Done
1472 bytes sent at ~11776 bps
Disconnected

So that looks good, right?

Well, my device (8700c) just sits there with a spinning hourglass, and the screen blinks on and off :(

This happens whether I try to load a little sample app which I downloaded and built from RIM, or whether I try to load free games or whatever. I've tried the 8800 simulator which came with RIM's JDE. My sample app loads and runs fine on it; so do the free games.

Where am I going wrong?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

Hey - I'm having the same exact problem that you are. It started when I tried to use javaloader to install a j2me app that i had written. The phone was stuck in a reboot loop for hours but some how magically fixed itself (the app I tried to install was nowhere to be found). About a day after it was working again I tried to install google maps OTA, and now I'm back in a reboot loop.

What are you doing to get yourself out of the reboot loop?

Thx.

Hi Briancav,

Sorry I didn't respond earlier (I must not have been email-subscribed to this thread). You probably already figured this out months ago, but if not... What I did to get it out of the "unhappy state" was to "reload the OS" via the Desktop manager. (Basically I just went to RIM's website and downloaded the latest OS for my device / carrier).

BTW - fatso485 was right. I was using the wrong version of the JDE to build my application. (I should have been using JDE 4.1 for 8700c instead of 4.2). Anyway, once I realized that, I was able to load my application via the Desktop Manager / Application loader, so I never bothered trying the javaloader, etc.
