    .jad formatted files are OTA (over the air) and can only be downloaded/installed from the BB Browser.

    Type the .jad link into your browser. That should begin the download/install.

    Well, try going to that website again but this time from your BB Browser and try downloading them that way. If they are not available, then you're either gonna have to look for them where they are available for OTA or do it yourself.

    Not stupid at all. Like Lluvia said, just go to the site where you downloaded the .jad file, but using your BB Browser. It should be a long file like http://www.pimpmyberry.com/ota/etc...../themename.jad.

    The above is just an example, but if you put your cursor (if doing it from your computer) over the link, you'll notice the full path of the file in the lower left-hand side of your home computer's browser. Just type the full path of the file into your BB Browser and off you go.

    A faster way, I suppose, would be going to a website that shrinks long URLs. Like Showip.be and typing that URL in your BB Browser. Just a thought for future situations. Good you got the file working now.

    You might be able to save those .rar files to your memory card, but you'll never be able to run or install them from the card.

    On your PC, extract them and install them using DM.

    jad files can be installed by the phone, provided the necessary cod files.

    I'd suggest ditching DM 5.0 and going to 4.6. I've heard that DM 5.0 is a pain in the "you know what."

    Anyway. Uninstall 5.0 and install 4.6.
