  1. Well, sir i was able to use my moms computer to do the steps, but when i go to download the file from my dropbox account, my phone tells my "forbidden", and then exits. I also tryed to use mini commander but it asks me like a million times " Untrused Midlet, This app accesses data on your phone, continue?", and thats it, dosnt let me in. My phone is the LG 840G from tracefone, Please help.
    • Here are a few things to try:

      1. Be sure that the jad file is in your Dropbox Public folder.
      2. If that doesn't fix it try copying the .jad and .jar files to the phone's memory card and than use the phone's file manager (called "My Folders" or something similar) to go to the Memory Card. Tap the .jad file and it should install

      If you are still having problems paste the link to your .jad file on Dropbox into a comment here and I'll take a look at it.
  2. Im asking for the wattpad app to be modifed and emailed to me at {email removed for your protection}
    I haved read other suggestions, and have gotten replys in denial, but i really need this app for school, for reading, but cannot stand to have the stupid keypad in the way. So im asking you to please modify the app and email me the download link. I would do it on my own, but i dont have a computer.
  3. I modified the mini44.jad file as you described, uploaded to Dropbox, but am having trouble installing the new file. Do I first delete the opera-mini jar file that currently shows in file manager? As I tried to install it, I got the error message "forbidden". Wondering what the next step is after I have the jad file on my phone? I have an LG840G phone and am trying to install Opera Mini 4.4
  4. Will it work on other games because i tried and it was in asian characters when I opened the file. I'm not sure if that is the reason it didn't work but if you know anything reply please
  5. Thanks for the modified operamini. I downloaded the min71.jad but I get an "invalid descriptor" on my LG840g when I attempt to install it. Any ideas what is happening?
    • I don't have that phone but several other people have said it works on their LG 840G phones.

      Is your phone activated? I'm not sure about the LG 840G, but on some Tracfone's downloading apps using WiFi doesn't work on un-activated phones.
    • It's activated. Everything works on wifi or 3G. Even operamini 7.1 works. Just don't like the big virtual keypad.
    • Strange that it works for others with the same phone but not for you. Everyone else seems to be installing by typing into the phone's built in browser. Is that what you are doing?

      Your mention of mini71.jad and "downloading" and then installing makes me think you are doing something else.

      Also, if you already have Opera Mini installed, try removing it first before you try to install this one.
    • I ensured that the previous veriosn of operamini was deleted before installing the .jad. I installed by downloading the .jad file from the site you mention, and then copying it to the phone's external memory. That resulted in having the virtual keypad. However, I just deleted operamini again and tried the procedure you describe below. Success! Thanks for your help and the .jad!
    • I think the problem is that your jad has extra newlines and spaces in a couple of the lines.


      I joined the lines together and it seems to work. My fixed .jad is here:
  6. i has sucsesto install opera mini with file you posted..sorry if my question out from the topic,different case, i tried to remove virtual keypad in TTPOD 1.7, and it say error illegal argument..hope you can help me
    • Does the unmodified TTPOD 1.7 work on your phone? If it does than the modified one will tooo provided you made the modifications correctly. Double check your work be sure you didn't make any mistakes.

      Also search the .jad file for a line that starts with "MIDlet-Jar-URL: " It should be followed by the full URL to the TTPOD jar file online starting with http:// or https:// If there isn't a full path you need to upload the jar to your Dropbox public folder and put the Dropbox public url there. i.e., MIDlet-Jar-URL:
    • The Samsung GT-C3312 Champ Deluxe is supported by Opera. You should be able to download it directly from Download it using the phone's built in browser so that the phone model is recognized and Opera sends you a version modified to remove the virtual keyboard.
  7. sir recently i have used ur method to remove virtual keypad in opera mini 7.1 and glad to say that it works nice .I heartly thankful to you.
  8. hello dennis, can you help me to hide virtual keypad on TTpod, i using samsung c3312. i tried to edit, but it failed to install.thanks
    • Opera Mini is no longer supported by Opera. There are lots of server side bugs (cookie problems, most login forms are brokenetc.). Any touchscrren phone should be modern enough and powerful enough to run Opera Mini 4.4. I'm not wasting my time to modify Opera Mini 3.2 for you. If you really want it the instructions are in the post.
  9. ok denis add the opera mini 7.1 here as a post as soon as posible. Ok quick post here the modified version and edit thats name to operamini 7.1 the browser main show name.
  10. in samsung phone when i updated any app with newer version then the app data of previous version does not remain in newer version. Nokia's phones can do it. IS there any solution?
    • I'm sorry but I don't have the time to do every possible version Opera Mini with every certificate type. The Opera Mini 6.5 and 7.0 on this page have both Verisign and Thwate certificates. Oprea Mini 4.4 on this page is Verisign only. If those don't work for you there are instructions here showing you how to create your own .
  11. sir i hv samsunp c3312 . When i dwnlod om7 or om m6.5 frm above given link i got authentacion failed. Plz give these link in .jar type means unsigned. Plz help me sir
  12. sir thanx for ur reply bt sir it keeps on showing
    also sir i want to tell you that there was a pre-installed version of
    opera mini 6.5 and earlier it had no virtual keypad but one day when I
    opened it to use it . The browser itself was installed and now it had
    a virtual keypad
    sir plz help of out thanx :-)
  13. sir i am unable to download either of opera mini 6.5 & 7 as my phone is showing out of memory error bt sir i want to use 6.5 version only so sir please do something for me . My phone model is Samsung GT C3312 Champ Deluxe Duos
  14. Thank you for your response.I forgot to say that I was using opera mini 4.4 because it was not working without touch in opera mini 7.Opera mini 7 does not allow me to use it without touch.Inline editing does not work without onscreen keyboard,which is too small on a 2.4 inch touchscreen.I want to use opera mini 7 without touch version.It just forces me to use touch version.I want opera mini 7 to look like it is on Nokia c3 or Nokia x2-01.
    • There's a setting for the Opera keyboard in Opera Mini 7's Settings > Advanced menu. Set to "Never" and you should be able to use the phone's hardware keyboard everywhere.

      With the hardware keyboard active inline editing isn't possible as Opera uses the device's input method. That's not something the user can change.

      It's also not possible to force Opera Mini 7 to use its non-touch UI on touch devices.

      To get rid of the bottom navigation bar in Opera Mini 7 select "Full screen" in the settings menu.
  15. Sorry,But my problem is little bit different.I have an alcatel ot 813d touch and type.It has a navigation d-pad,so I don't need to touch the screen for navigation.But opera itself configures mini for touch.So I am unable to use it without touch.I want to remove that navigation bar of opera(yes that of opera)My phone does not show its own bar,as shown in left picture,as it is not full touch.I want to tell opera mini that this is not a touch phone.I want it to look like it looks on nokia c3 or x2-01.Please,help me on that thing.I am using opera mini 4.4 now.
    • Opera Mini 4.4 doesn't have a navigation bar of its own, just narrow black bars at the top showing the page title and at the bottom showing the soft key labels. If you are seeing a bottom bar with left and right arrows it's coming from the phone. If the modified jad file on this page doesn't remove it perhaps Alcatel phones require a different .jad file attribute to remove the navigation or don't support removing it.
  16. Sir, that fix you suggested was for a previous version of champ, mind is C3330, the code to start my phones java test is different which I dunno.
    can you please somehow solve the issue am facing:-(
  17. sir, it shows java error. content size too large, i could well instal UC BROWSER to my phone but opera doesn seem to work? i tried modifying myself but again it gives the same error!!!!
  18. Awesome Dennis! Thank you! It works very well, exactly what I was looking for. Can you plz mod a UC8.x also (no Nav + Land)? Ill post this good stuff on a few forums I know of for the Xpression. Thanks a ton!
  19. Directed my LG Xpression C395 at the pre-modded Mini7.jad dropbox link and did indeed Download it with no problem from the link. However, the navigation bar remains? Looks the same as what i had by default. Works the same too. Seems the mod just did not do anything to the app.

    Any way i can remove the virtual nav bar from my LG Xperssion while useing Mini7?
    • Also a Landscape Mod for UCBrowser would be awsome for my phone (LG Xpression)! If these work would it b ok to share the links/info on some other forums/sites?

      the Xpression is very new and i know it would help many people. Thanks!
    • I don't have an LG phone to test with but I added a couple of LG specific commands to the jad file:
      LGE-MIDlet-Width: 240
      LGE-MIDlet-Height: 400

      I also added commands that are supposed to enable landscape and auto rotation:
      MIDlet-ScreenMode: ROTATE
      MIDlet-Landscape-Support: true

      The modified jad is at shortlink:

      Let me know if it works and if it does I'll do the same for the UC Browser
    • As far a sI know the ones I posted should work on any phone that can run Opera Mini 6.5 or 7.0. If you phone can't what versions of Opera Mini does it run?
    • Possible reasons why the modified Opera Mini doesn't work include:

      1. You already have a unsigned version of Opera Mini, or one signed by a different signing authority installed and your phone's platform security is blocking the installation.
      Fix this by uninstalling the old version before installing the new.

      2. You phone doesn't support the all certificates version of Opera Mini which I used to create the modified version.
      Solution: Try all 4 versions of Opera Mini 7 (All Certificates, Thawte, Verisign, No Certificate) from and tell me which one works and I'll create a modified one for you.

      3. Your operator blocks jar down loads from
      Possible solution: download one of the jad files and corresponding jar ( or
      to a PC. Copy the jad and jar to your phone's memory card and click on the jad using the phone's file manager)

      4. Your phone doesn't support any version of Opera Mini 7 or 6.5.
      There's no solution to this.
  20. I was unable to download both opera mini 6.5 and 7.0 touch screen versions from your site. Because it says that Java error. Can you please fix it? My phone model is Samsung GT-3330. Because of the smaller screen I am unable to see the big pages. Please fix it as early as possible.
    • Sorry it doesn't work for you. If you have Opera Mini already installed try uninstalling it first before installing these versions. If that doesn't work it's likely that your phone doesn't support the signatures that Opera uses.

      This solution only works on phones that support Opera's signatures. If you search with Google there are lot's of modified jar files on other sites that remove the virtual keyboard. They are unsigned and should work on your phone.
  21. Thank you very much! I've been looking for this fix since I got my phone (Samsung T528G). I'm going to post a link to this page on my forum question about his issue.
  22. hello there,im wondering if opera for touch screen phone can also be used for keypad phone?i've wanted those navigation bar on the lower part of the screen,im using keypad phöne.
    • There's only one version of Opera Mini which uses a different user interface on touch screen and non-touchscreen phones. There's no way to force the touch UI to be server on non-touch devices. It wouldn't work anyway as most of the touch buttons can't be trigger by a key press.
