       bjavaloader is a tool for loading, listing, and  deleting  applications
       on  a  BlackBerry  device.   It  has  a few other features as well, not
       pertaining  to  application  management.    The   command   syntax   is
       intentionally  similar to the Windows program ’javaloader.exe’ provided
       by Research In Motion, in order to make it easy to use the  same  build
       scripts on Linux and Windows.


       -a     Used with the ’wipe’ command to only wipe the applications.

       -i     Used with the ’wipe’ command to only wipe the filesystem.

       -f     Used  with  the  ’erase’  command  to  force  the  erasure of an
              application  that  is  currently   in   use   in   the   device.

       -h     Display a command help summary.

       -s     When using the ’dir’ command, list the submodules as well.

       -p pin Specifies  the  PIN  number of the device with which you wish to
              communicate, when multiple devices are connected.

       -P password
              A simplistic method to specify the device password.

       -v     Verbose debug output.  This enables dumping of USB bus scanning,
              as well as the protocol packets used during communication.


       dir [-s]
              Fetch  a  list  of  all applications and display them on stdout.
              When used with the -s option, submodules are included,  and  can
              take a long time to display.

              Provides information on the handheld.

       load <.cod filename> ...
              Loads one or more COD application files into the device.

       save <module name> ...
              Retrieves  modules  from  the  handheld  and writes them to .cod
              files with the same name as the module.   Note  that  this  will
              overwrite any existing .cod file in the current directory.

       wipe [-a | -i]
              Wipes   the  handheld,  removing  all  data  such  as  messages,
              contacts, etc.  and/or all .cod files, including OS .cod  files.
              By  default,  with  no  options specified, both applications and
              data are wiped.  Use the switches to specify  only  applications
              or data.

       erase [-f] <module name> ...
              Delete the specified application module(s).  The module name can
              be determined using the ’dir’ command.  When used  with  the  -f
              option, the module is erased even if in use, and the device will
              be reset.

              Retrives the handheld event log and prints it on stdout.

              Clears the handheld event log.

              Dumps the stack traces for all threads into the event log, which
              can then be viewed with the ’eventlog’ command.

       screenshot <.bmp filename>
              Capture current screen image and save in BMP format.

       settime [yyyy-mm-dd HH:MM:SS]
              Sets  the  time  on  the  handheld  to  the current time, or the
              specified time.  If time is given as an  argument,  the  current
              system timezone is assumed.


       bjavaloader  was  initially  written  for  the Barry project by Nicolas
       Vivien, with additional contributions  from  others  over  time.   This
       manual page was written by Chris Frey.
