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.
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.
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
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
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.

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.
