    I was able to download unsupported content (example: .exe files) to my blackberries. So far when trying to do so far on my moto Droid, it says download failed. Is this possible @ all??

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Download Crutch works exactly as described. I'd recommend it.

    I have been able to save .exe files and such using the Dolphin Browser. I just today, downloaded winamp.exe and pdanet.exe files and saved them to the SD card. :D
