Opera Mini 7

Opera Mini 7 was released today. Feature wise, It’s the same as the Opera Mini Next Beta released 3 months ago. There are supposed to be lots of bug fixes. Opera Mini Next which added the following compared with Opera Mini 6.5.

  • Support for more than 9 speed dials – you can add as many as you like, or as many as your device can handle.
  • Improved support for Right To Left languages
  • Tab improvements – Tabs are now closed with one click on touch screen devices. And when you close a tab, Opera Mini will switch to the one you used last.
  • No more “www.” in address bar. The auto completion still supports it, though.
  • Text wrap toggle added
  • New tabbed Start Page with Speed Dial and Smart Page tabs. The smart page displays:
    • My Sites – Auto generated links to your three most visited sites. Swipe or arrow left to see six more.
    • Social Networks – Displays the two most recent items from your Facebook News Feed and Twitter timeline. Swipe or arrow left to see more entries (up to six each from Facebook and Twitter).
    • My News – Three headlines from RSS feeds. Swipe or click left to see three more headlines.
    • Suggested Links – About 25 non-removable links to mainstream sites. The links are divided into categories like News, Finance, Sports and Social Networks

Because it’s a release version, installing 7.0 will replace and upgrade your Opera Mini 6.x or 5.x version keeping your bookmarks and saved passwords. You will lose any saved pages from earlier versions, however.

    • What does the error message say when you go to facebook.com with Opera Mini 7? Do other sites work?

  4. my t mobile does not download the opera mini it says download not surported

    • What is the make and model of your phone?

  5. My opera mini used to download faster..but now it is very slow why?

    • Most likely a network or server issue.

  6. I can’t download any operamini for my phone, what can be the problem, kindly assist, am sick of this java error thing

    • What phone are you using and what exactly does the error message say?

  7. why my opera mini is not working please tell me????????

    • It works for me. You probably have a network issue, corrupted Installation or incorrect data settings.

  8. how can i download whatsapp on jar

    • The only Java WhatsApp app is for some Nokia Asha models. If your phone is supported you can download it from the Nokia Store.

  9. can i install whatsapp on my nokia n70,pls i nid help asap

    • No, WhatsApp isn’t available for S60 2nd ed. phones like the N70.

  10. Just wanted to say Thank You 🙂
    Downloaded to my Sanyo Innuendo, and is working fine.

  11. Downlod me phone

  12. My phone is corrupted with virus i need help please

    • It’s probably not a virus. Mobile phone viruses are rare on Android and simply don’t exist on non-smartphones. In any case doing a hard reset (factory reset) should restore your phone to it’s original state.

  13. i want signed operamini 7 for lg gs290 which having screen size 240×400 and without indicator

  14. Guess all web browsers dont work on the mirro oh well thanks

  15. I cant download any browser to my mirro 903 and 907 errors and boost wont help

    • Error 903 is a network error, the installation may work if you retry in a strong signal area. Error 907 indicates the app is incompatible with the phone.

      User have reported that the Opera Mini 6.5 version at http://boostapps.com/apps/opera-mini-6-5/ works on the Juno

  16. Smart page has stopped working. Hear of anyone else having this problem? Wonder if I should reinstall?

    • I never use SmartPage myself. But I just re-enabled it and it’s working. Try clicking the refresh icon in the menu. If that doesn’t fix it re-install should.

  17. i just would like to be able to use java script on my rambler with the smallest size downloads any suggestions?

    • The only browsers with even limited JavaScript support that will run on the Rambler are Opera Mini and the UC Browser. Depending on what the site is trying do with JavaScript one or both might work. For full JavaScript support you need a smartphone or PC.

  18. guys..how does one change the fullscreen options on the sanyo innuendo so that opera mini 7 will stop crashing?

    • I don’t have an Innuendo so I don’t know if it helps or not but turning off full screen is easy:
      Open the Opera Mini Settings Menu (press the left soft key, highlight the “O” icon, press down arrow, click “Settings”). Scroll down and click “fullscreen” to deselect it.

  19. A friend on a social forum posted about a cool feature on Opera Mini 7, Power User Settings. Just type in the url box “about:config”, without the quotes of course. You will see settings that will improve performance, and get rid of one of the annoying features. 🙂

  20. Hi! Would love this for my new LG 800g phone. Please let me know if it will work…I am just learning about this. Would be my 1st app. Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    • I have heard that Opera Mini 7.0 works with the LG 800g. Give it a try and let us know.

    • Hi Dennis. I am waiting for a mem card for my new LG 800g phone. As soon as I have it working I will try Opera Mini 7 and post.

  21. Btw. There is nothing wrong with your phone, Opera has just changed the way they displayed your feeds.
    Display by Feed no longer shows the number of feeds, it now jus highlights which feed has a new item by making that feed font in bold now.

  22. awesome, thanks. It works perfectly now lol

  23. @boostapps.comBen.
    Try it again, but do not use the fullscreen option. Using fullscreen will just cause endless crashes.
    Btw, I am posting this tip with my Sanyo Innuendo using Opera Mini 7.

  24. Doesn’t work on the Sanyo Innuendo. It crashes the phone too often to be of any use.

  25. i like the new interface and works well with scp6760.then a week later.phone starts locking up blanking the screen and not loading opera.i delete and reinstall 6.ALL those go away.so be aware

    • No idea what you mean by “All those go away”. All those what?

      It sounds like Opera Mini getting corrupted. That can happen if you use the red key menu to end (suspend is OK) the app. Always use the Opera Mini menu’s ecit option to quit

  26. love the update, but I still have to hit the t button several times to make it type a 5. It doesn’t realize I’m using a qwerty when I want to use a number, so it works like a t9 keypad.
    UC doesn’t have this problem, but it doesn’t load past the first page lol

    • I don’t know which Boost QWERTY phone you have, but on the Rambler and Incognito and probably other Boost QWERTY phones you can quickly enter numbers in Opera Mini by holding down the number key for about a half second. Also if you enable Fullscreen Edit in Opera Mini’s advanced settings menu, all keys work normally.

  27. Hey Dennis. It happens sometimes when I am trying to download something. It only happens on OM v.7. Not 4.4.

  28. Hey Dennis:) Another question…sometimes I get an error (not sure the #) but it says “proxy authentication” I think. What does that mean?

    • I’ve never heard of that error. What are you doing when it occurs?

  29. Hey Walter. As always, keep me posted. 🙂

    • well d/led UCbrowser on my BB8330, at first i was very surprised with it let me tell u this browser its faster than OM maybe 3 r 4 secs also much more features than OM 4.4 u have tabs, d/l files, copy/paste,lots of key shorcuts, very costumizable it even had a night vision mode was playing with it for hours but the speed was unbelievable! sadly later i discovered lots of bugs many sites were almost impossible to scroll like phonedog.com and crackberry.com which was the most annoying of bugs, blank pages, pictures wouldnt show sometimes it got really laggy at times noticed also that the interface needs some work kinda clunky if they fix those bugs and inprove the layout it would hands down be a great browser could b my phone maybe cant handle this browser i notice it happens whn certain applications r too big like OM 6.5 n 7.0 for now 4.4 is the best, worth the shot thou thanks for the tip Shelly

  30. I did a little diggin n UCbrowser 8.3 works only on Iphone, Android n Windows will not work on blackberry now I did find out UCbrowser 7.8 v. will work so gonna give it a try n see if it works thanks!

  31. 907 Invalid JAR
    Error!: control flow verification information too large: M

    • What phone is giving you that error?

  32. Hey Walter. I know this is the opera mini comment area, but have you checked out the UC Browser v. 8.3.0? I know you’re good with the OM v.4.4, and I like it as well. I did check out the ucbrowser tho, and it might be something that works well on your phone. It’s actually pretty cool. Keep me posted 🙂

  33. Thank you Dennis, as well. It was my first time doing this (chatting and asking questions with people I don’t know) and I appreciate your qwik response. I will definately check this page often to see any new input 🙂 Ya’ll take care and have fun with your Opera Mini!!

    • Welcome to the BoostApps community and thanks for sharing the links to Myxer, Mobilerated and Google maps.

  34. Yeah, no problem. But I’d like you to keep me posted. Let me know if any of them worked. I hope so 🙂 And if you find anything you can download, post it on here. I’d like to hear about it. It’s been fun chatting with ya 🙂

    • well i think i figured it out a friend of mine has the same phone u have,” the theory” he just didnt know how to use it so i think he was able to d/l some apps n wallpapers hes very happy , i myself was curious about a new release on Opera 4.4 which i have installed on my Blackberry 8330 works great, wish it had a few more fetures like the other versions, ever since 5.0, 6.5, n now 7.0 they simply never worked right on this phone always buggy n glitchy as hell it was just extremely annoying something to do with the ram i guess im glad at least 4.4 works fine only thing left to do is just wait n hopefully they will have a 4.5 r 4.6 but thanks for ur help Shelly

  35. Ok thanks Shelly

  36. Hey there. Ok, here are a few. I am going to give you the addresses. myxer.com/wap/xhtml/default. That has all sorts of free ringtones, wallpaper, etc. Mobilerated.com, which has free games and apps. M.google.com/maps/download/maps.jad. That one is really cool. It’s kinda like a GPS, you type in point A to point B and it shows you how to get there. That one saved as a new application. My ringtones saved in my “sounds” folder and my wallpapers saved in my “pictures”. My phone is a Motorola wx430 if that’s any help:) Try them out.

  37. Hi Shelly let me ask u, on Opera 4.4 what exactly r u downloading cause I can’t do anythin like that, say save pages or d/l stuff maybe its just we got diff phones

  38. On v. 4.4 whenever I download, I have the two options “save” or “open”. I choose “open” and it downloads 🙂 But no, I can’t save on either version. The phone I have is a Motorola model wx430. At least that’s what is says under the battery. It was a cheap little phone, but it has done more than what I thought it could 🙂

  39. On v. 4.4 when I download I have the two options “save” or “open”. I pick “open” and it downloads 🙂 But no, I can’t save anything, not on either version. The phone I have is a Motorola model wx430. At least that’s what it says under my battery. It was a cheap little phone, but I’m amazed at what I have been able to do with it.

    • Thanks, that’s pretty much what I expected for a phone without a memory card like the the Motorola Theory WX430.

  40. I think you’re right. I have also tried to download the MiniCommander and am unable to, something like “unsupported data”. But thank you for the reply:)

  41. I agree with you Walter. I hope in the near future they do upgrade the 4.4. It works the best (and I have tried many) with my phone. Thank you for the reply.

  42. I see, too bad thou Opera 4.4 works great can’t say the same for the other versions just too glitchy n buggy hopefully they’ll update it n add a few more features

  43. As far as I know, the save option only works well on phones with a memory card. You can save some files directly onto the phones memory, but then you would never be able to access that file without an app like MiniCommander, Royal File Explorer or PicoMail.

  44. i guess i like it. I am a little partial towards opera mini 4.4. But i do like v. 7. I am still trying to figure it all out. Like walter, my phone is a not so snazy, low memory phone but have found v 4.4 the very best. Question tho…on v. 7 whenever i try to download anything, my only options are to “save” or “cancel”. My phone won’t let me save, something with it being unsigned, so all i can do is cancel. Which cancels my download…i guess i’ll just have to stick with the old 4.4

    • Can you save files when you use 4.4. I’m surprised saving works with 4.4 but not 7. Which phone are you using?

  45. I wonder when they’re gonna release the follow up to Opera mini 4.4 for low end phones

    • Opera Mini 4.n isn’t updated very often. It was at least a year between 4.3 and 4.4. The only updates you are likely to see are minor bug fixes.

  46. well works great on incognito. But i lost all my bookmarks not just saved pages. Sucks

  47. I take it we need to go directly to the Opera site to get the signed version?

  48. It works great on the Sanyo Innuendo, just don’t use the fullscreen option.
    The bugs I reported with my favorite browser based game “Algadon” were fixed too. 🙂
