Updated: Download Old Opera Mini Java, PalmOS and BlackBerry Versions Here

Opera Mini 3.1 Opera Mini 5.1

Opera Mini updates are usually a good thing. They include bug fixes and often, new features. But for a few users, usually with old or obscure phones, the new version doesn't work as well as the old one or work at all. On the Opera Mini User forum there is a recurrent theme of users, trying a released version and insisting that one of older ones, was better.

There's a sticky post on the forum with links to some old versions but it's far from complete and doesn't include beta versions or signed ones.

I can understand Opera wanting users to be on the latest version, but when that version doesn't work it's nice to have the option to roll back to an older one.  I've gathered up all the Opera Mini 5 versions I've been able to find and linked to them below.

These are all English language versions.  Java phone users should try the JAD link first and if it doesn't work try the JAR.

If you get an expired certificate error installing one of the signed versions, try setting your phone's date back a year or two. Be sure to set the date back to the current one before trying to run Opera Mini to avoid getting a "Verification of server certificate" error.

The ZIP files are for use with BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

Updated 5-Oct-2012: Originally published in October 2010, this post is still one of the most popular on WAP Review. Today I went through some old download directories and added over a dozen more old Opera Mini versions.

Updated 12-Jul-2013: Added PalmOS PRC version and Palm Java ME JVM

  1. Hi Dennis and everyone else.
    I need info/advice please on following 4 queries:
    1) I need to ascertain (EXACT ver.) OperaMini Installed on my old Blackberry 9300 curve but can't find an "About" nor a "Help" reference in my presently installed OpMini browser for the info. Please help

    2) BEST version OperaMini EVER for me was 'Ver. 4.2.13337 Dec 2008' on my Nokia N95.
    Query: which is the BlackBerry ver. which has MOST similar features to that ver., that will work on my BB9300 CURVE OS ver.: (Bundle 1440 Platform
    3) IF there IS a similar ver. available, which is it and the link please.
    4) I already HAVE 2 different ver. of OpMin on my fone, but IF there IS a ver. available like (4.2xxxx as above in query no. 3), how would I install it without the program installing itself OVER 1 or the other 2 OpMin programs and that will install itself separately?
    Hope someone can help.
    Advanced thanks.
    • I'm don't know much about Opera Mini for BlackBerry, but in the Java version of Opera Mini 4.x the version number is under Menu > Tools > Help > About.

      The BlacKBerry versions of Opera Mini are always going to be quite different than the Symbian ones you had on your N95. I haven't used a Classic BlackBerry in over 10 years and have no idea which version would be closest to the 4.2 Symbian one

      I think best bet is to download the current Opera Mini 4.5 or 8.0 for BlackBerry from http://m.opera.com using your BlackBerry's browser

      Or you could try downloading one of the old BlackBerry OS zip versions from this page to your PC and installing it with BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

      AFAIK, there's no way to have two different versions of Opera Mini on a BlackBerry at the same time.
  2. Thank you very much for maintaining this list! Opera Mini 5 stopped working on my Samsung and the officially recommended Mini 8 wouldn't run. So you helped me a lot with Mini 7 link.
