    Default 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

    Will definitely give this a try, it's annoying to have to boot into Windows just to sideload an app lol. Thanks for the post

    If that is exactly what you type in then there is a missing space between your device's IP and the password argument.

    This is correct:
    Code:
    java -Xmx512M -jar "BarDeploy.jar" -installApp -device 169.254.0.1 -password **** AndroidPdfViewer.bar
    I do wonder why people don't just use the tools that come with the Tablet OS SDK, though. They are not more complicated that these tools. You just go to the installed app folder and type in:
    Code:
    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.

    Yup, the Chrome browser extension is called Playbook App Manager . Simple and intuitive to use. No howto is required. Thanks.
