opera mini as a pc browser (larg screen)

Last week the beta version of Opera Mini 5 has been released. Due to the drastic change in the user interface, OperaMiniLargeDevice (OMLD) for the Sun WTK 2.5.2 from this post does not work very well anymore. Therefore, I have now worked on a similar solution (new emulator device template) for the new Java Platform Micro Edition Software Development Kit 3.0 which is the successor of the WTK, offering you the same features of the previous OMLD. The main function is of course to let Opera Mini run in a big window on your desktop.

In this first preliminary solution, OMLD for the Java ME Platform SDK 3.0 is now available with the screen resolution of 1024x705 usable pixels.

To install the solution, follow the next steps:


* Get the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

* Get the Java ME Platform SDK 3.0 for Windows from http://java.sun.com/javame/downloads/sdk30.jsp

* Get the "OperaMiniLargeDevice" for Java ME Platform SDK 3.0 from http://omlargedevice.makube.de/download2.html

* Get Opera Mini 5 beta browser for Java-enabled phones from here. Be sure to download both the JAD and the JAR to the same directory.

* Internet access on your machine

Installation (done for Win XP):

* Install the JDK.

* Install the Java ME Platform SDK 3.0 for Windows.

* Unzip your downloaded version of "OperaMiniLargeDevice" (simply extract it, a directory named "DefaultFxTouchPhone" will be created automatically). Open the directory Path-to-Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0\toolkit-lib\devices . Then rename the directory "DefaultFxTouchPhone" in there to something else. Afterwards copy the newly extracted directory "DefaultFxTouchPhone" in there. The complete path to OMLD on my machine looks as follows: "C:\Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0\toolkit-lib\devices\DefaultFxTouchPhone".

* Next, we are going to install Opera Mini 5 in this new emulator. This is only needed once! We are doing this by opening the command prompt and entering the following: Path-to-Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0\bin\emulator.exe -Xdevice:DefaultFxTouchPhone1 -Xjam:install=Path-to-OMDirectory\opera-mini-5.0.15650-advanced-en.jad . On my machine the command was: "C:\Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0\bin\emulator.exe -Xdevice:DefaultFxTouchPhone1 -Xjam:install=C:\midlets\opera-mini-5.0.15650-advanced-en.jad" . Then you will see some output like: "Installing suite from: The suite was succesfully installed, ID: 2" . This ID is important, as we need it to start Opera Mini in the next step. After the installation you already see the big emulator screen as shown in the next picture.

You could start Opera Mini now. But you could close the window as well and start Opera Mini later. This is what we will do in the next step.

* Starting Opera Mini is easy as well. Open the command prompt and enter the following: Path-to-Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0\bin\emulator.exe -Xdevice:DefaultFxTouchPhone1 -Xjam:run=ID -Xdomain:maximum . On my machine the command was: "C:\Java_ME_platform_SDK_3.0\bin\emulator.exe -Xdevice:DefaultFxTouchPhone1 -Xjam:run=2 -Xdomain:maximum" . Then the emulator window comes up and you can start Opera Mini by clicking on the respective entry. If you start Opera Mini this way, your preferences and bookmarks inside Opera Mini will be preserved, as the Midlet's ID (here 2) is reused again.

Here is a sample picture of what the result looks like:


The Emulator itself has an ID, shown on its window title. Usually it is 9. With this ID you can find the working directory / filesystem of this emulator, where also Opera Mini will store its settings and pages. On my machine it can be found here: "C:\Documents and Settings\user\javame-sdk\3.0\work\9\appdb\filesystem\root1".


You can control Opera Mini 5 almost completely with your mouse. If you don't like the normally activated inline editing feature you can deactivate it inside Opera Mini's advanced settings.

Hope you find this solution helpful. Any tips to improve this solution are welcome.

Is this free? I mean, it won't charge you when you surf the net? I've known about this stuff long time ago and tried this on a prepaid broadband, it doesn't work.
Merry Christmas!

@aloukay, you can find him in Indonesian Corner in Asia Pacific Region. He just signed up last 12/24/09 as Antofungky. I don't know if he's active since then.

nice discovery! but i think this won't work on my pentium 1 based notebook..

Posted by Excalibur69
I've made this run on my desktop and laptop, however, it charges me of the regular charges due our networks...
It's really fast, however, i prefer to use 3rd party applications or tunneling apps because it's free of charge even i have no load...
