Application OTA Deployment - app icon not visible on home screen

Hello Evevrybody,

 

I am working on OTA deployment of our BB app. The steps followed by me are:

 

1) Modified JAD file generated by JDE Eclipse plugin to modify the RIM-COD-URL-x to point the server URL

2) Modified RIM-COD-Size-x correspondingly based on size of Extracted cod files

3) Extracted 'sibling' cod files and placed them on server along with cod file of library project

4) Appropriately set the MIME type of server

 

On browsing my web page from the device/simulator browser, I see that installation page ->Download -> message (Your installation completed sucessfully).

 

But, I do not see the application icon on the home screen of device. Though I see application listed under Options - Advanced Options - Applications.

 

Restart of the devive doesnt help either.

 

Here is my JAD file :

 

 

Manifest-Version: 1.0
MIDlet-Version: 1.0
MIDlet-Jar-Size: 271910
RIM-COD-URL-2: http://serverip/ThirdPartyDependencies.cod

RIM-COD-URL-1: http://serverip/MyApp-1.cod
RIM-COD-SHA1-1: ca 29 00 8b cc 80 8b ab fb da b5 6f bf 4f 84 1f 5a c3 35 c9

RIM-COD-Size: 73492

Any pointers on what am I missing. Thanks in adavance.

If you mean 'Media > Menu > Explore > Device memory > Home > User' as the Download folder, then I have checked it it isnt there.

No he means your home screen > download folder

 

You'd be suprised how many emails I get from people saying no icon is visible when it is really just sitting in their downloads folder...
