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

    • In the Java menu highlight Opera Mini, press options and then suite settings. Set the permissions for write user data and read user data to any one of ask once, ask always or always allowed. If those choices aren’t available you need to download a signed version of Opera Mini.

    • I’m not aware of any restrictions on distributing freeware such as Opera Mini. If Opera Software believes otherwise and asks me to remove the files I will.

  16. I have an LG Banter Touch. Everytime i try to create my profile. It gives me the message to update my browser. The same happens with my Yahoo email. I have 5 certificates (Im dont know what those are or the meaning) but the 1st has an red x at the others have green checkmarks. What browser can i get? Also certain sites i got to give me the message enable Javascript and retry. Its enabled. So can u tell what im suppose to do? Ive disabled it then reenabled it? PLEASE PLEASE HELP. Thanks

    • Sites give you upgrade browser messages when using a mobile browser because they are badly designed and expect everyone to be using a PC with IE, Firefox, Safari or Chrome. Nothing you can do about that except complain to the site’s support email if they even have one.

      You can’t install or upgrade certificates on non-smartphones like the Banter.

      As far as I know, the LG Banter Touch for MetroPCS supports installing Java apps like Opera Mini. So you can’t install Opera Mini or any other browser unless there’s one offered through Metro’s apps store.

      Although the Banter Touch’s browser supports some JavaScript you will get turn on JavaScript messages because it doesn’t support the particalar JavaScript dunction the site is trying to use.

      Basic phones like the Banter Touch will have trouble browsing most sites designed for PCs and many designed for Android and iPhones. Stick with sites made for mobile. There are over 2000 listed in the WapReview Directory

  26. I have a 9700 that has problem with Opera Mini 5 navigation not working. The BB OS is v5.0.0.34 which is not listed here. Will I just have to wait until version Opera Mini 5 has been fixed?

  27. I have a curve 8530 and I tried to download both the JAD and JAR versio of opera mini 5 beta 2. Error 907 keeps showing up…

    • You can’t use the generic jad and jar files with a Blackberry. Download the zip for your BlackBerry OS version, extract the files into a directory and install then with the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

  28. Tried loading through Desktop Manager for Mac to Bold 9650, but it would never finish “preparing applications.” I can’t find a way to download only the one application. Any helpers?

  29. I don’t think anyone is as excited as I am! I gave looking for the beta versionszb thanks a lot!

  30. thank u soo muchh.. i was looking for the beta version of opera mini for days.. atlast i found here..
