GetJar recently made a minor change to their mobile site. The change broke the BoostApps Opera Mini GetJar bookmarklet that lets you download games and apps directly to your Boost iDEN or Nextel USA phone without the need for a PC.
To make matters worse the GetJar desktop site has also been redesigned and the option to download .jar files to your PC has been removed.
Because iDEN phones do not support downloading apps using the browser, that leaves the BoostApps Universal App Loader is the only way to get apps from GetJar, the largest free mobile Java app store in the world, on to Boost Mobile iDEN and Nextel phones.
I’ve fixed the Opera Mini GetJar bookmarklet. You just need to reinstall it. Go to boostapps.com/tutorials/universal-app-loader-operamini-getjar/ using Opera Mini and follow the instructions.
I’ve also made some enhancements to the Universal App Loader:
- FIxed a bug that made downloading .jad files from the full web version of the loader fail with a 404 error.
- Added code to completely regenerate .jad files from information in .jar. This should fix many, but not all, “905 Attribute Mismatch”, “906 Invalid Descriptor” and “909 Application authentication failure” errors.
