mercat74,

After doing a little research, it seems the the .jar file extension is actually alot like a .zip file extension, where the .jar file itself hold multiple other files that are compressed into the one file. Unfortunately, in order to unzip a .jar file, you will need the JDK tools on your PC. This means that you will have to extract the files from the .jar file on your PC before moving the files over to your phone.

On my phone (not Samsung), java executable files need to be installed. They are subsequently accessed through an Applications menu.
