    Problems installing Opera Mini

    Advertisement



    Hello guys!

    New to the forum and everything looks good I cant wait to join you guys!

    I have been looking around everywhere to try to fix the problem I am having, I am a newbee to blackberrys and I see that you guys are very advanced so I am hoping maybee one of you guys can give me a hand with this. I am using a 7100i (nextel) with a data plan and I am attempting to install opera mini on this device.

    I have downloaded the desktop manager V 4.2 and when I go to Application Loader and attempt to upload my opera mini files it tells me "a fatal error has occurred while updating your device's software, please try again". I have downloaded about 3 different versions of opera mini as well as the desktop managers, I even bought another data cable, and still cannot get this working!

    If one of you intelligent blackberry addicts can help me I would be more than delighted!!!

    Thank you so much!!!

    Welcome to the Stacks Mechanicalme. What happens after you get the "fatal error"? Does your screen return to normal or do you see an hourglass?

    Re: Problems installing Opera Mini

    We noticed this the other day when attempting to download AskMeNow via desktop manager on a 7250.

    We were able to rectify the challenge by uninstalling 4.2 Desktop Manager and re-installing 4.1 Desktop Manager.

    There are a few challenges when using the 4.2 DM with a 4.1 Operating System, and this seems to be one of them.

    It would work fine on 4.2 OS devices, but not 4.1 devices.

    My recommendation would be to remove the 4.2 DM, replace it with 4.1DM and try again.

    Hope this helps.

    Well, when I attempt to upload it I get an hour glass for about .5 sec and then it says connecting to desktop on my blackberry.


    Thanks so much for your help!

    mini.opera.com, it's an OTA download, and if you have a data plan, there should be no problem...

    Re: Problems installing Opera Mini

    The problem is that I have to call nextel and get them to send me my service books for my phone. I have had problems with this and I JUST put the data plan on, so it takes like 6 hours. I need to configure Opera Mini before then so I can do what I need to do.

    Thanks guys
