Midlets that DO work with the MiTAC Java Runtime!


Recommended Posts

Guest Paul [MVP]

Found a cool midlet that DOES work with the MiTAC Java Runtime?

Well, don't keep it to yourself, post it here :)

If it doesn't however, post it in the other topic!

Might note that JavaMan doesn't like the java app names longer than 9 letters. It'll give an error "alert: Cannot access j9midpng. Make sure the file is not in use or try opening it from within an application". Here are a few that worked for me randomly playing around with a few downloads:

GoldMiner 1.2.1

Game will run if file name is shortened from GoldminerTrium.jar to Goldminer.jar.

Fremtris 0.5.3

A tetris clone. Use navigation pad to move pieces and 1 key to rotate.

http://midlet.org/repository/krzyzanowski/...tris.jar?md=445

MIDP Man 1.0.1

A Pacman clone.

http://midlet.org/repository/javaonthebrai...dpman.jar?md=15

Dwindle 1.0.8

A game where you eliminate blocks.

Reversi

An Othello game clone.

Just figured out how to make a few midlets work that didn't before. midlets that need to connect to the internet didn't have security permissions to do so, so they weren't working. I've just successfully used an irc midlet called Virca and a telnet app called mutelnet with the changed security settings.

Here is what I changed to make the apps work:




1) Drag IPSMProgram FilesMIDPNGlibsecurity.policy to the desktop.


2) Open it in a text editor like notepad or wordpad.


3) add the line "allow: javax.microedition.io.Connector.socket" under the "domain: untrusted" entries.


4) Save the file and replace the one on your phone with the new file.




This allowed me to use a bunch of midlets that wouldn't work before.

µTelnet 2.0.1

A telnet midlet.

Virca 1.1.3

An IRC midlet. Use it to connect to irc.monolithix.org #smartphone :)

This may just be me be dumb, but from what I can understand this is a java rumtime program from a Mitac that we can install on our SPV's to run java applets, correct ?

Where can I find the mitac files needed, I have look and search the site and can't find anything :cry:

Cheers 8)

Mitac pulled the zip files on thier service site. Looks like there is no legitimate source for the files now.

Argh godammit!

Well if anyone wants to send the files needed to [email protected].com I won't say a word!  :wink:  

Cheers

Try http://cordo.free.fr/spf/Mitac/ and download Java.zip

Some kind person posted the above URL on smartphonefrance.info yesterday. I could never reach Mitac's service site (invalid DNS?), and so had resigned myself to not being able to get the files, until I saw the post on smartphonefrance.info.

can someone tell me how to instal the java.zip please!!

Well I didn't download the Java.zip - I downloaded the APCD-v20.zip - and took the two cabfiles from that file.

Javaman.cab

midpng_SmartPhone.cab

The java.zip contains:

JavaMan.cab

JavaWM.cab

So I can't really say if the latter is great, but if you download the APCD-v20.zip and take the two cabfiles from there, simply install those two on your IPSM (not your storage card) - then make a folder called "Temp" and place it in "IPSM" (IPSMTemp)

Then place the midlets in the Temp folder, and run Javaman to select which midlet to run.

Well that site has been down for me .. for the better part of two days!

I mentioned APCD-v20.zip cause it was also in the directory found here: ( http://cordo.free.fr/spf/Mitac/ ) - should probably have made that a lil more clear :oops:

Oh well...

Java.zip is all that is needed. The two CAB files should be placed in IPSM/Windows/Start Menu and then use your phone to run the files (they should appear in your Programs menu list).

If you read like 5 posts or so up .. you'll understand why I suggested the entire zipfile .. and not the two cabs. Wouldn't be right to suggest something I haven't tested - when other people hollar about their phones breaking..

Interesting to know if the JavaWM and the midpng_SmartPhone.cab are one and the same cab. *shrug*

I think the people who had the problem were downloading the full 6MB zip file, and running set-up.exe. This causes their phone to run in Chinese and maybe freeze! Java.zip has only the files needed to run java - not the setup.exe file. The file is a lot smaller to download and will not cause the potential problems of the full zip file.

my advise is to run the setup without phone on cradle. the programs ie metalstrike get saved in my programs under mitac the all you do is download the cab. next time you put phone on cradle click no to cancel install :)
