Re: PhoneGap Install

Hi,

 

You're trying to deploy a BBOS application onto a BB10 device.

 

In the current version of PhoneGap (aka Apache Cordova), you will need to target "qnx".

 

Assuming you have everything setup properly in project.properties, you should run this command:

 

ant qnx load-device

Re: PhoneGap Install

Thanks for the reply, I'm doing this from the adobe phonegap build site. Is there anyway to do what your saying from there or am i better off figuring out what i need to do through ripple?

Re: PhoneGap Install

PhoneGap build does not yet support BlackBerry 10

 

You should follow the instructions in the getting started guide:

Out of curiosity, what is phonegap build currently targeting as far as Blackberry goes? I've used phonegap before for android stuff, but not BB10.

 

Does Phonegap Build create files for BB7 and earlier? I am just wondering if perhaps it'd be a way to 'port' BB10 apps for earlier Blackberry OS people. I realize it's sort of a downgrade port, but seeing as not everyone will upgrade, it may be a way to reach extra people.
