Joshua Kempe: THANKYOU jbasketballgirl16 , the video was a big help! :)
A little additional info; I had to do the following:
Apps with the *.jar extension must be renamed to *.zip , then edit the file
located in the "META-INF" directory and copy and paste code provided above
in the description to the bottom of the file. Save, and re-compress the
entire contents of the jar. Rename the file's extension back to *.jar
You may need to manually do this by going into Window's shell and navigate
to the folder containing the java app.
C:\users\johndoe\downloads\> cd javagames
C:\users\johndoe\downloads\javagames\> rename game.zip game.jar
This worked for. I am not sure if it works with all jar files though.. Good
TheTrentDude: HOLY CRAP! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! i was SO angry when it would show
that unremovable keypad! you deserve a like!
Abigail Faith: Is there any way to do this WITHOUT hooking it up to the computer? I
misplaced my USB and the Opera Mini keypad is so annoying! I know that on
most touchscreen phones, there's a way to do it on the phone settings. Why
not on the LG 840G?
CovertBrony: there's no reason for the phone not accepting the code changes without the
animatedsquid: I dont have a "Others" folder. I have lg840g btw.
CovertBrony: i love the way this phone looks but i hate java os and it's hardware and
software but what i really hate the most is java virtual d-pad. why does
every app/gamr creator put java virtual d-pad on everything. honestly they
should stop put it in every game/app ever it never helped anyone including
CovertBrony: http://wapreview.com/16785/ is where you can download the opera mini
without the annoying keypad
Catzilla: The thing that drives me nuts is when an App *claims* to be touchscreen,
then when you start it up, it asks you to use soft keys to enable/disable
sound or access the menu items. Hey, is this a touchscreen app or not?
Tracfone just came out with two new Android phones. I just got the ZTE
Valet. 1 Ghz CPU, Android 4.1, it's pretty cool.
nickk3141: Adding this in seems to make most games work for the LG GR500 as well. Got
my mom a decent version of solitaire for her phone. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Catzilla: Thanks! That worked perfectly. For folks who are still confused, .jar app
are just .zip files with a .jar extension. Make a copy of the original .jar
file, rename it with a .zip extension, then use your favorite utility, like
IZArc or BandiZip to unpack it. Then, just edit the Manifest.MF file with a
plaintext editor, like NotePad and add the extra instructions on the end.
Save the file, then re-pack the directory to a zip file. Then rename it
back to a .jar file and transfer it to your phone.
Trevor West: I don't see the others file. help?
jake0123100: does this work for games you can get off umnet
Val Clear: Manifest corrupted is due to unicode character text. How I fixed this is to
export the manifest file from the jar (zip) then add the patch, and then
import it again.
blasphemy68: cant get the manifest file to come up. should I download to my computer
first instead of my phone?
ChipsAhoy: Is there a way to remove it without the USB?
slimline441: If I install an app using the phone's browser, then move the app to the SD
card using the phone's options for apps (to see it on my PC), the *.jar
files cannot be opened by WinRar or anything else from my PC. If I download
the *.jar to my PC (using IE), I can edit it as you show, but, when I copy
the modified file to the phone's SD card and try to run the app, the phone
says "file missing". This seems to mean that the phone modifies (encrypts?)
the jar files in some way when it installs them.
Val Clear: which game are you using? Make sure you didn't paste the top line title.
send me a link to the download and I'll fix it & send you a link to the
fixed if you like.
jbasketballgirl16: sorry you dont like pocahontas :(
Music18Monster: Im still having trouble, when i got to the link which one do i download
jbasketballgirl16: I will make a new video showing my entire process on my new channel: Janina
Tutorials To try and answer your question, I plug the phone into my laptop
using a data cable (some cables are just charging cables and cannot
transfer data) and the SD card is inside the phone. Then something pops up
on my phone asking to use it as a mass storage device and i click yes. what
you see in the video is what is shown in my computer afterwards. You can
also connect the sd card to the laptop using an adapter.
slimline441: Thanks for your response! I was able to figure out what confused me: I did
not realize that an edited *.jar file can be copied from a PC to any
directory on the SD card on the phone, THEN opened using the phone's file
manager (by tapping on the file), which installs the midlet. I was trying
to mess with the *.jar files of midlets that had been already installed
using the phone's browser and those seem to be encrypted or altered so that
they can no longer be opened by WinRar or other programs.
pw9011: Thanks for the Remove Virtual Keypad video, works great ! Is there also a
way to force the game to display in landscape mode?
Subashini Rajesh: hi , Do we need to install WinRAR & do the corrections in cell phone or pc?.
BattletoDeath: hey, i just got my 840g and i wanted to put games on it so i found your
channel. But why would you want to remove the virtual keypad? does it make
it go faster?
rainyyang1: i have winrar...but how do i get my computer to show winrar folders on my
Trevor Hope: what do you mean by 'code in the description'? Also, when I try to open the
file directly from the phone, rather than from a download to the computer I
get the "The archive is either in an unknown format or is damaged" message
and wont allow me to open it. Any ideas? I've been using WinRaR.
Val Clear: So far, I've got Solitaire Deluxe 240x320 Landscape, AngryBirds,
AngryBirdsMontyPython, FruitNinja, Asphalt3D, PicoSMS, Gcal, Gmaps,
GuitarTuner, UCBrowser. ANYONE GOT SPOTIFY OR GOOGLE HANGOUTS?
d3rocks4u: nvm found out it works great
cookies12375: Thank you, this help download a lot of games without keyboard on my friend

Tycoon looks great).
Rachel Colangelo: Can you pls help me figure this out! I tried the WinRaRx64, that wasn't
compatable w/ my system...so, i did the other version..32??...& I still

Mimoun Gaid: what is the name of the song?
April TracFone: Hi UNANIMOUSMANEK, this is April from TracFone Wireless. Please check if
you inserted the USB cable to the port correctly and properly if you are
using a cable. Double check if the power is on; both the computer and the
phone. If that will not work out, you may need to install some software and
drivers in your computer. If you have any other question, send us an e-mail
DJPlace007: i would like to know this has well. please replay to both of us. i got uno
but it's off the screen a little bit.
d3rocks4u: how do you open the files. I tried your download on 2 computers. I use an
micro sd card if that meens anything
Spidy Cookie: Hey! I could use some help. So at first, I would plug in my phone and the
file wouldn't show up. I then put my two Java apps (Simcity Deluxe and
Opera Mini) onto the SD card, and then I think they were in the folder. In
the folder, there was 025.jar and 027.jar. (I'm just assuming those were
the games because they weren't there before and they were in the G&A
folder). I can't open it though! I have an iMac. NOTHING WORKS. Please help!
Sazyla18: when i try to open the file (manifest.MF) on my phone it says "unsupported
file type." help?
perfectlyparadoxical: TextEdit on a Mac & WordPad on Windows.
Val Clear: Click Upload and Click Analytics to see your INBOX on the left
Red Dead Rebellion News: so now my phone wil be a full keypad not the 1abc 2efg type keypad?
mysweetharmony: Love that song and great review too. Awesome music thanks!
d3rocks4u: why is it in chinese characters
LesPaul1482: this song is terrifying =/
slimline441: Just to complete my comment: your solution does not work for me, because
the *jar files on my phone (SD card) are unopenable and if I try it from
the other end (edit a *.jar file downloaded to my PC, then replace it for
the one the phone installed on the SD card), the phone doesn't recognize
the file. You also seem to be able to use your phone when it's connected to
your PC. Mine goes into "mass storage mode", showing the contents of the SD
card, but cannot be used. Do I miss a step?
UNANIMOUSMANEKI: lol Its fun to sing these songs while you play assasins creed lll
