I have a BlackBerry/curve 8530 smart phone. I have meny times tryed to d/l the prog Jmirc at "http://jmirc.sf.net/beta/jmIrc.jad" from my Blackberry phone and always end up with "HTTP error code 404: not found". I can d/l Jmirc on to my desktop computer. But I end up with a file called "jmric.jad". Fileinfo.com gives me the following file description for the file ext JAD "Descriptor file that describes the contents of a MIDlet, a type of Java program developed for the Java ME virtual machine; commonly used to package Java games and applications developed for cell phones" I do not know how to decompress a JAD file to a ALX/ALI format that the Blackberry can use. Can someone please tell me how to get the Jmirc prog working on the Blackberry.
Those who own a BlackBerry device, I recommend to check out the beta version of jmIrc at http://jmirc.sf.net/beta/jmIrc.jad which has some BlackBerry specific options. For example you should be now able to connect through WiFi or BES/MDS from the advanced settings. Reportedly also users that need a BIS connection might have better connectivity with the new BlackBerry connection mode. I hope this will help those users who have had connection problems before. Also if you want to support jmIrc development, please consider donating!
