Sideloading apps from Mac OS X - FINALLY!
I thought I would share my findings just incase anyone else is running into the same problem I was when trying to sideload an app from a mac.
Took me ages to get it working but I've read just about every website and post about sideloading from a mac.
I followed this guide: Side-loading on the PlayBook with a Mac - localbar didn't work for me though
I then kept getting this error message:
n thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file
Finally a user by the name of zachamo posted this little gem:
Just an FYI to Mac users on OSX 10.5 with a Core 2 Duo processor.. You may have issues side porting due to an error to do with an invalid version number in the .class file.. this is because you're on the wrong Java version..
Go to Applications>Utilities>Java and move the java version 1.6 (64 bit) to the top of the list.
So zachamo, THANKYOU! and for anyone else running into this problem, enjoy.

I was able to sideload the test simplebrowser that came with the folder but when i tried to sideload a pdf reader I get message saying unknown argument. This is what I am typing in:
java -Xmx512M -jar "BarDeploy.jar" -installApp -device 169.254.0.1-password **** AndroidPdfViewer.bar
I put the bar file in the folder just like it says. Anyone have a clue to what I am doing wrong. Thanks in advance

This is correct:
java -Xmx512M -jar "BarDeploy.jar" -installApp -device 169.254.0.1 -password **** AndroidPdfViewer.bar
blackberry-deploy -installApp -device 192.168.11.3 -password **** -package mypackage.bar

Having the barload issue. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Don't know if it's spacing or what, but it is NOT working for me and I can usually do this sort of thing.Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. G. I Joe

I have used several methods and never had any problem sideloading. I used the terminal originally, but in another thread someone gave me a link to a fantastic Chrome extension that works great for sideloading AND uninstalling sideloading apps. Basically no steps required at all to run it.
