Download free apps from BlackBerry App World from any country

494 Comments

I found this great article in the forums that shouldn’t go unnoticed. It’s a little old but hopefully someone out there gets some use from it. The how to will allow you to download the free apps from BlackBerry App World, even though RIM hasn’t officially launched in your country.

1. Download the App World .ZIP file.
2. Unzip it to your desktop
3. Copy the files net_rim_bb_appworld.cod, net_rim_bb_appworld_resource_en.cod and JavaLoader.exe to the following folder depending on your Windows OS:

    3.1 In Windows Vista “C:\Users\(Your User)
    3.2 In Windows XP “C:\DocumentsandSettings\(Your User)

4. Start CMD (Windows Key + R and then type CMD)
5. Plug-in your BlackBerry
6. Type: javaloader -u load net_rim_bb_appworld_resource_en.cod
once done type next one:
7- Type: javaloader -u load net_rim_bb_appworld.cod

Your device will now reboot and you will have App World on your device. This has been tested on the Curve 8900 and the Bold, so make sure to comment whether it works for you.

BlackBerry Storm users:

1. Download the App World .Zip file.
2. Unzip it to your desktop
3. Run the Blackberry Desktop Manager
4. Select Application Loader
5. Select Add / Remove Applications
6. Select Browse and look at your desktop for the file “appworld.alx” and select it.
7. Click Next and then Finish.

    I have blackberry 9900 and I was trying to get it work. Using cmd was easy the first problem wast there was no restart(I had to shut down it by myself(not restart)).  And then came error Error starting null:null. I will research about this problem and if I will find a solution I’ll tell about it. 

    By the way is there any debugging soft for blackberry+ how hard is to rewrite the BB code, because there are so many mistakes and holes in the soft.   

  • zen

    And yes, windows 7 == Vista

  • zen

  • French

    I used it on the Curve 8520 and it worked as stated. I have Windows 7 Professional on my laptop as it is company supplied and it doesn’t have a “documents and settings” folder. What you need to do is go to c:users’your user name’ and add the specified files there. The rest of the procedure is as stated above.
