Fix For Opera Mini 4.2 Crashing On Motorola i9 and i856

Opera Mini 4.2 Motorola has discovered an issue with the Java Virtual Machine on Zeus Series phones (currently the i9 and i856) that affects Opera mini.  It causes these phones to reboot while browsing with both Opera Mini 3.1 and 4.2.  The rebooting can be prevented by adding the following line to the application’s .jad file:

iDEN-MIDlet-miniJIT: off

If you want a slightly longer technical explanation it’s here.

If you have an i9 or i856 you should use this version of Opera Mini 4.2.  Users of other models should use the generic version as the iDEN-MIDlet-miniJIT: off directive will cause a performance degradation on anything except the i9 and i856.

If you already have Opera Mini 4.2 on your phone, Download Apps will not automatically prompt you to install the new version after downloading it. You need to go to Java Apps, highlight Opera Mini, press the menu key and choose “Update”. Say yes to the prompt “Keep existing application data” so you don’t lose your bookmarks.

  1. Okay, I was using the Open Wave for the last comment. Now I’m using Opera Mini. I want you to see how limited it is to me. I just — is it possible to mod the app into having 10,000 char space? That would be so awesome. Type, type, type. Type, type, t ends

  2. Hey, Dennis. The char space is pretty limited. And me, I type A LOT. Usually over 100 words per message. I help people when they message me and if I can help them, I do so. Lately I haven’t been as detailed cos of this limited char space. Let’s say I were using Opera Mini right now. I don’t think I’d be able to send this full message… but break up in parts. Is there by any chance a way you can fix this? Can you mod Opera Mini to have a much less limited char space? Like, 10,000 chars? Yes, 10,000 can be the limit… Could yeh do that, please? 😕
