Deploy on Blackberry Dev Alpha

I have been battling to install on the Dev Alpha Device for quite some time. I have been thinking there may be problem on my side. But no reinstalled everything including debug token. The result is same.

Re: Deploy on Blackberry Dev Alpha

check your config.xml, is there a tag which looks like this:

<author href="website here" rim:copyright="Copyright...etc..."> COMPANY NAME </author>

that might be the issue

Re: Deploy on Blackberry Dev Alpha

Use <author rim:copyright="2011" email="EmailId">Company Name</author> in config file!


Hope it will work!

Thanks & Regards,

Re: Deploy on Blackberry Dev Alpha

It says signatures are missing.  Think you need to register your developer keys.  If you dont have then you need to get some and register - they're free.


The config XML also needs to be correct so you need to put the author's name in there - the one you signed up for keys with.
