Seriously, it's WAY, WAY too complicated to sideload apps onto a device for debugging / testing. My head is spinning! And more important, it's not working. The instructions go to some AIR page at some point while i'm on WebWorks.
I got stuck at this page:
It mentions 'blackberry-tablet.xml'. What is this? I've never touched such a file before so I have no idea what 'my blackberry-tablet.xml' is.
It also says:

I haven't had a chance to work with the new sdk yet but this does sound confusing, the air sdk seems to be mixed with the webworks sdk...
I might install the new webworks sdk later on today and repackage one of my apps, I'll let you know if I get it to work.

Since I don't have an actual device to test on, I can't say for sure.
But I did look into the command line option for adding the debug token and have tried it with the simulator. That doesn't work but I assume it's because it's not a real device and debugging is turned on anyways.
Just look for the command line option for adding the debug token and you shouldn't have any problems. I'll test and report back once I've gotten my device.

I got the token registered with the server and installed on the device just fine. For me the problem lies (apparently) in packaging the bar correctly. Right now my bars won't install. Just get an error about them not being signed.

if you unzip your bar file, you'll find the blackberry-tablet.xml file.
I haven't attempted anything with the debug tokens yet so I can't add anything on that piece.

Right so if I understand this correctly I'd have to unzip my unsigned bar, edit that file and then re-zip and rename to .bar? Interesting. Will try thast tonight. That's not in the instructions as far as I remember by the way...

Personally, i didn't bother with the debug token. I am signing and uploading my app directly to the Playbook for testing, same way Was with the simulator. Of course, I'm having to sign each update, but I don't see any issue with that.
