Possible Fix For Opera Mini 5.1 Crashes on i856 and i9

Opera Mini 5.1

Since I posted Opera Mini 5.1 a couple of days ago several readers have commented that it generally works OK on their i856s and i9s  but frequently crashes causing the phone to reboot. Opera Mini 3.1 and 4.2 had the same problem and the fix was to add the line:

iDEN-MIDlet-miniJIT: off

To the app’s JAD file. I’ve done the same for Opera Mini. I don’t know if this will help or not as I don’t have an i856 or an i9.  So if you have one of these phones try installing this version and letting us all know if it helps or not by leaving a comment.

If you already have Opera Mini 5.1 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 5.1, press the menu key and choose “Update”. Say yes to the prompt “Keep existing application data” so that you don’t lose your bookmarks.

If your are trying to run Opera Mini 5.1 on an i465 or any other iDEN handset except the i856 and i9 , it probably won’t work. If you want to try it anyway  this version of Opera Mini will probably run even more slowly than the generic 5.1 available here.
