A good friend of mine has passed away several months ago.
Today is her birthday and i decided to make themes in honor of her ,so all her friends and family (who own a blackberry) can use these.
But i can't figure out how to make OTA links for them (talking about TB 5.0)
Can ANYONE help me?
Hello keessultan, firstly, sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Let's see if I can point you in the right direction.

The one I would recommend is BB Theme Lab... OTA Hosting - Blackberry Theme Lab
I did some Google searching for OTA hosts and noticed a lot of them have stopped services, but I believe that BB Theme Lab is still providing OTA hosting for Theme developers. Give them a look.
I would also suggest checking out MyBbOTA.com too if you're still looking for a theme host.
When I first started I checked out BB Theme Lab (a wonderful source for theme devs in general), but I found their OTA hosting a little too complicated for my taste.
MyBbOTA was extremely easy to use, and have since updated their website making it even easier if at all possible. Not to mention the support is outstanding! I recommend them to everyone, theme buyers and developers alike ;-)
