how to install a bar file in BB 10 Dev Alpha B Device

Hi Friends,

 

I have BB 10 Dev Alpha B Device. I want to install a bar file in the device.I have installed the bar file successfully  by

 

following thease steps from the QNX IDE.

 

1.Right click on the bar file

 

2.Blackberry Tools->Install. 

 

but some how device OS id Upgraded to 10.2.1.1241 from 10.2.1.1057.

 

now When I try to install the bar from QNX, It is not installing.

 

I have tried to install the bar file from File Manager app but is giving " File can't open" message.

 

Is there any Alternative way to install the .bar file by downloading it from directly the  mail ?

 

or any other bar file Installer apps in the BB 10 market ?

 

Please Help,

 

Thanks.

DDPB can also install bar files. Search Google for it. Or try the link below.

Can you give more details on how it's not working? Are you getting an error message? Is you device in debug mode?

 

The IDE comes with the blackberry-deploy tool, which is what lets you deploy your bar files. You can use it from the command line.

yes I am getting the following Error and Device development mode is On.

 

Deployment Failed:result falure 500 utf8 codec can't decode byte 0x2e in position 119: invalid continuation byte

 

but I didn't make any changes in the code. The same code is not installing after Device OS upgrated.

 

Thanks.
