Latest UC Browser 9.5 (Signed Java Version) Modified to Remove the Virtual Keypad On Samsung, LG and Other Touchscreen Phones

UC 91 With Virtual Keypad UC 91 Without Virtual Keypad

I did a post a while ago explaining how to modify Opera Mini’s jad file to hide the unneeded touch keypad that displays at the bottom of the screen on some touchscreen phones. The post included a link to the modified Opera Mini. I received a request asking for a copy of the latest signed Java version of UC Browser modified to hide the keypad.

The process for modifying the UC Browser or any other Java app is exactly the same as what was described in the original post:

1.Download the app’s jad file to a PC. You can get UC Browser jad files (signed or unsigned ) at

2. Open the downloaded .jad with a text editor or Windows Wordpad

3. Scroll to the bottom of the file and paste in the following lines:

Nokia-MIDlet-No-Exit: true
Nokia-MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad: no
Navi-Key-Hidden: true
UseNativeTextButtons: hide
ReverseSoftkeys: hide
UseNativeCommands: hide
MIDlet-Touch-Support: true
MIDlet-ScreenMode: ROTATE
MIDlet-Landscape-Support: true
LGE-MIDlet-Width: 240
LGE-MIDlet-Height: 400
LGE-MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad: no
LGE-MIDlet-Display-Mode: both
ATT-MIDlet-VirtualKeypad-Use: No

4. Upload the file to a file sharing service that is easy to use in your phone browser. 

5. Visit your file’s url with your phone browser and click the modified mini.jad link to download it to your phone.

If that didn’t work or you don’t have a PC or are just in a hurry, here’s are links to the latest signed version of the UC browser as well as some older versions.

  1. Dennis Bournique, you know this is totally a helpful. anyway do you know how to change the BG colors? or the default color of UCbrowser theme?(the light-blue and white) without downloading a theme.

    • You can change the background color to black by choosing the Night theme (Settings > Display > Themes) There’s no way to change the theme except by downloading a different one.

  2. I’ve bought a china phone and almost all usefull applications are installed into it from the company but I can’t do this ….So please tell me that how I can install Uc browser into it or any other browser???

    • You mean a fake iPhone or something like that? Some of them don’t let users install apps or don’t support Java at all.
      If the phone supports installing apps one of the following methods should work.
      1. Go to the website where the app is available using the phone’s browser and click the download link, the app should download and install
      2. Download the app to a PC. Copy the the app (.jad file) to the phone’s memory card using a cable or card reader. Using the the phone’s file manager click on the app’s jad file on the memory card and the app should install.

  3. but the operamini 7 modified version say too large when i download that. What i can do yar. I dont know how modified that plz modified that opera4.4 version and add here plz. For my samsung phone. Touch version.

  4. sir plz how i get opera mini4.4 full touch screen without vertual keyboard for samsung champ deluxe phone.

  5. when i download jad file of ucbrowser then i open it with wordpad but there no text seen. Just file name yar.

  6. Plz add more uc browser and latest that means ucbrowser8.6 signed version and full touch like others for my phone samsung champ deluxe. Plz quick add that. As soon as posible

  7. What’s the difference
    between v8.3, 8.4, &
    Is this app can now download games?
    ’cause mine is only
    making a trash.
    Will you please tell me.

    • The differences between UC Browser versions are the new features listed above for each version.

      The built in browser is usually best for downloading and installing apps.

  8. In the USA java phones are not sold much but in the outer world they are, most made in China and India. My new touch screen is Chinese, running java sava os it doesnt talk like the iphone but does everything else like a highend smartphone. Its a no name brand. Plenty small companies in China making them, not all, but some work great. The Chinese are very good at it.

  9. Thanx your ucbrowser is very good. Can you plz send me the link of operamini 7.0 verisgn fullscreen.

  10. I like your updated uc browsers:-)… Can you please send the updated opera mini brower with no virtual keypad on my email id [Email Address Removed]:-)…… Please.

  11. when you open the .jad file with windows wordpad you just need to look for the following line:
    Nokia-MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad: yes
    and change it to:
    Nokia-MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad: no
    in case you can’t locate the line, just scroll to the bottom of the file and paste in the latter.
    this works for me.

  12. People still use Java ME?! The cheap galaxy phones like Mini and Gio costs less than most S40 phones and more powerful than “1GHz” s40 phones with no multitasking.

  13. Samsung phone support unsigned apps easily and it does not create problem in using .jar modified app.
    So please upload the .jar modified version also.
    Many net user want .jar version

    • There are many tutorials on the web that show you how to modify the jar as well as many sites with modified jar downloads. I don’t see any reason for me to duplicate them.

      I wrote this post to show how to modify the jad to get rid of the virtual keyboard because it is has many advantages and is less well known then jar modification.

  14. Hey u can use this code in .jar version.Just open with winrar and then drag and drop MANIFEST.MF folder and open it with Notepad and these lines to remove virtual keypad-
    MIDlet-On-Screen-Keypad: no
    MIDlet-Scaleup-Support: False
    MIDlet-Touch-Support: True
    (If above three lines don’t work,then add these two below lines also)-
    LGE-MIDlet-Width: 240
    LGE-MIDlet-Height: 400
    (That’s all.Save and Enjoy)

    • That works but modifying the JAR is more difficult, has no advantages that I can see and means the app is no longer signed.
      It’s easier to modify the JAD and is the only way if you want or need the signed version.

    • Not all phones allow third party apps like the UC Browser to access the file system which is necessary to upload photos using the browser. Using a signed version of UC browser may help, but if that doesn’t work you can always upload photos by sending a picture message to your Facebook email upload address.

  15. which browser is best for samsung champ deluxe duos (it already has an in-built browser and opera mini 6 but that doesn’t works nicely)
    thanks for .jad file of uc with removed virtual keypad.

    • The best browser is the one that works best for you on your phone. I don’t have a champ deluxe duos so I have no idea which might be best. You say Opera Mini 6.0 doesn’t work well so try 6.5 or stick with UC if that works well.

  16. I m using uc..but photos are not opening in my fb accnt..what should i do?

  17. hey sir plz update d
    Exiting d virtual keypad
    4 samsung n lg phoneS

  18. Iam using uc browser But it doesnt have vido search engine ( videos) which vertion have that tool. Iam using sonyericsson yendo w150i mobile. Which vertion is best for my mobile for downloading videos and how would i get that vestion to my mobile.

    • I don’t remember ever seeing a vuclip search in any version of UC. I don’t see the point of having single site searches built into browsers. There’s a site search on the vuclip site, use that. Or use Google with a “site:” query filter e.g. “world cup” to find world cup videos.

      Go to with your phone’s browser. It will detect your device and serve the best version, currently 8.2.

  19. Which version suitable for samsung champ E2652
    as given advise lite version is not work so well

  20. Which version suitable for samsong champ e2652 as advice by 7.2 is not supported

  21. For samsung s8500 no need for a patched app just change use virtual keypad or not in apps.

    • That’s true for the S8500 but not for all Samsung touch screen phones. Also the option to disable the virtual keypad was removed from bada 2.0 so if the S8500 ever gets 2.0 it will need this patch too.

  22. Uc browser is not support for my mobile (samsang gt s 3653) please help me
