Application resources in the older BREW 3.x and 4.x development programs use the .BRX extension. However, BRX files have been deprecated with the release of Brew MP. You can convert BRX files to CAR files using the Brew MP SDK.

NOTE: The Brew MP SDK is actually a suite of programs and plug-ins. For example, the SDK includes Brew MP development plug-ins for Microsoft Visual Studio, Adobe Flash, and Eclipse.
