    Hey guys. As you know, you can't save any games in 9mm HD. Huge bug.


    To fix this bug, just put the app in dev mode (use below manifest.mf) with your debug token.
    Modified Manifest.mf (You need to change author and author ID to be the same as your debug token!)
    http://www.mediafire.com/?fn4gfuwgfi7j7n0


    The guys who made the app didn't actually test a production version (signed). Signed apps can't write to app dir which has screwed up a LOT of things!

    Also, the game saves are meant to go to shared/misc/gameloft/games/9mm/save.dat but this isn't hooked up to anything yet. In addition, they haven't asked for access_shared permission the XML file.

    Gameloft, if you need help, .. :P

    You'll need to fix the permission and then resign.

    man.. Sorry, I am a bit lost.

    when you refer to Extracted.bar, do you mean extracting the 9mm HD.BAR file? If yes, how do you exactly do that? I bought the game through AppWorld and I dont know how to extract the BAR file. If I would to download the game from some pirated sites, then maybe its easier

    To fix this bug, here's what you need to do:

    Edit the blackberry-tablet.xml and add:
    <permission>access_shared</permission>
    Then resign.

    For some reason they forgot to include this!

    I would make a 'fixed' version, but that would be piracy. Hopefully you guys can get the .bar yourself
    Man you're a saviour, thanks buddy
    Resigning is a problem, I don't have a signing key is there any other way to sign the bar file?

    No sorry. The other option also requires a key (debug token). You'll have to wait until the update.

    Can I rename the bar file as .apk and use PlayBook .apk to .bar converter to sign it. Will this work?

    Unfortunately not. It would want to load the .apk in Android Player :P

    Requesting keys is now an instant, automatic process. Generating a cert from the keys is a two-click affair in any of RIM's development tools such as the NDK.

    So, out of interest, how are you extracting the bar file from your PlayBook? Using an earlier jailbroken OS?
    05-24-12 10:17 AM
  13. xsacha's Avatar
    The OS doesn't need to be jailbroken. You just need to be on 2.0.7971 or lower.
    If you're on 2.0.1.358 you can still downgrade to 7971 or 7111 at any time (and then upgrade back).

    Thanks again xsacha. Still bunk though... I bought the game and I do not wish to downgrade. But as you said, sharing that .bar would be piracy Let's hope GL updates 9mm quickly

    The game needs to be in devMode, not the tablet.

    In the .bar file, remove everything in META-INF except for manifest.mf. In manifest.mf, set development mode to true, remove author signature, change author and author id to the one in your debug token. Then replace first four letters of package id with 'test'. Then sideload it.


    There is an easier way but not legal.

    You shouldn't have changed the blackberry-tablet.xml. Go back to the original one.

    I have provided original blackberry-tablet.xml and modified MANIFEST.MF to make things easier for you.

    Original blackberry-tablet.xml:

    Modified Manifest.mf (You need to change author and author ID to be the same as your debug token!)
