Unhappy Help With OTA

Please Login to Remove!

I just made a website for all of my new themes and need some help hosting OTA. I found this on another BlackBerry Forums website and I need an easier step by step guide. I'm LOST!

OTA How-To



I know this isn't the easiest thing to figure out, so I figured I'd put up a little HowTo on getting your JAD files accessible OTA (Over The Air).

What you need to do is edit the .htaccess file in the folder you are storing the JAR, JAD, and COD files in on your server. You'll need to include these 3 lines in it:

AddType text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor jad
AddType application/java-archive jar
AddType application/vnd.rim.cod cod

Then don't forget to put the JAD, and COD files on the server (I added the ALX and JAR files too, but you only really need the JAD and COD files for OTA installs).

My host is running Linux. If you are on a windows server I suspect that it works a bit differently, but I don't know for certain. If someone knows please share with the group.

I then just made a really basic index.html (index.html.txt Sorry had to add the .txt) file in the above directory that had a text link to the JAD file. Then when you click on the link it pops up with the standard install dialog.

I hope this helps.
