    How-to: Desktop installation (Example: Opera Mini)

    Advertisement



    Hello,

    I know this is basic for most of you, but I hope some newcomers will find it helpfull!

    First off all you need the phone connected to the computer, I'm assuming you have a USB cable. if not, get one

    In order to connect the decive to the computer, you'll need a program called Blackberry Desktop Manager. You'll probably want the newest version of the program.
    This can be located here:
    http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support...ab_tab_desktop
    Click: Download BlackBerry Device and Desktop Software
    When prompted to choose program. Choose: Blackberry Desktop Software 4.3

    A new screen comes up, hit the download link shown in red here:


    Fill inn contact information and hit next, accept the EULA (if you accept it) and hit download.
    Filesize should be aprox 330mb.

    When this is downloading go to http://www.operamini.com/download/pc/blackberry/
    Select your device and you'll be given a page where you can download.
    Verify language and hit "opera-mini-advanced.zip".

    Save the file to your desktop and when completed extract it.

    Install the application and start the program called: Blackberry Desktop Manager
    When the program is started connect your phone.

    After a little while of working it should come up like this (notice: Device connected: "YOURPIN")


    Press "Application loader" as marked in the image above with red.
    At first connect the program will load a lot of information from the phone, it will probably run for 5min aprox.

    In the end you'll get to the Application list. At my phone it looks like this:


    Press the "add" button, browse to the files you extracted (opera ALX files): operette-hifi.alx
    Select the file and hit open. You'll get "Opera Mini" in your application list, press the Next button. And the installation will complete.

    Your phone will reboot and voila!

    Hope it helps you.

    Cheers

    ok so i did a search and came acros this post.

    im stuck on 1 part..

    after i download the zip file i right click it and hit "extract here"

    2 files extract
    operette-hifi-nojsr75.alx
    operette-hifi-nojsr75.cod

    the icon beside these files is a white black icon.
    when i browse with the desktop manager it does not reconize either of the files that i extracted
