I own a Blackberry Bold 9000. It has come pretty invaluable to my day to day life with the Blackberry Internet Service offered by Mobitel.
But one of the main problems is the lack of Applications that I can run on it. Blackberry’s AppWorld (kinda like Apple’s AppStore but with a pocket protector) is the only place I can get anything other than the default programs on my Bold but Cambodia isn’t supported by it.
Which pisses me off so I went trawling on the internet and came up with a workaround.
Its actually quite easy.. if you have Windoze.
Which meant downloading Parallels on a trial basis and installing it onto my Macbook Pro.
Here are the instructions:
1. Download the App World .ZIP file HERE
2. Unzip it to your desktop
3. Copy the files net_rim_bb_appworld.cod, net_rim_bb_appworld_resource_en.cod and JavaLoader.exe to the following folder depending on your Windows OS:
• 3.1 In Windows Vista “C:\Users\(Your User)
• 3.2 In Windows XP “C:\DocumentsandSettings\(Your User)
4. Start Command line interface (Windows Key + R and then type CMD)
5. Plug-in your BlackBerry
6. Type: javaloader -u load net_rim_bb_appworld_resource_en.cod
once done type next one:
7- Type: javaloader -u load net_rim_bb_appworld.cod
You should be up and running!
But there are a couple of issues I have seen online on several forums.
The first being that only the free applications are available. I have not tested this for myself as I don’t see any Apps that I particularly care to pay for.
Also, you can only use Data Streaming or WiFi to upload your Apps. Don’t know why but I couldn’t upload anything with WiFi turned on.
Since this is a photoblog, here is a photo of my Bold with newly downloaded apps.
