I'm at the point where I want to beta test my game. I have a Z10 and have been developing on it without any real problems. When I go through the process of exporting a release build from the IDE (File->Export->BlackBerry->Release Build), It all seems to go fine at this point. Then I upload it to my website/sever. Next I download it from my Z10 using the browser. Finally I click on the downloaded bar file to install and it says it's not a valid bar file.
The only thing that seemed somewhat odd was that on the Z10, there was an icon of TXT beside the file. So I wondered if it was uploaded in ascii instead of binary. I'm pretty sure it wasn't since I used a command line ftp to make sure binary was on. I also used my local wamp server with no luck.
Any ideas? Is there some error logs someplace? Can this even be done with BB10 or can you only release on App World?

Thanks but that is only for dev mode builds I believe. After searching more on this forum, I believe I am asking why the OTA install isn't working AKA side loading. It's been awhile since I have done a release
Off to look for a method through App World...

For command line side loading of the signed release builds please follow the instructions here (last step shows how to deploy):
For beta testing your application through the BlackBerry World, please find the instructions in the "Live/Production Testing" part of this blog post:
hope it helps, Ram
