9:1 How to install on different mobile phones


Note: For detailed indications, please check http://jolon.org/vanillaforum/categories.php for installation issue, and add your questions if there is a new topic.

In order to transfer to your mobile phone the application, you will have to activate infrared or wireless or direct USB cable communication. Then, you will move the JAR file(s) to your application / games directory in your mobile phone. Sometimes, you shall have to install special PC-mobile phone communications software available with the CD accompanying it.

After this, you will point to the JAR file from the mobile phone menu and run it. If problems appear, you shall have to try other JAR files (smaller modules or MIDP1.0 if MIDP2.0 doesn’t work).

For WAP/GPRS acces, you shall have to access the link below (http://biblephone.intercer.net/wap/ ) from your mobile phone browser and then to select the desired version.

There are cases where the mobile phone requires so called JAD (Java Descriptor) files. You shall have to test it if needed.

From the experience of different people of putting this application on different mobile phones I put below the following notes:

Nokia mobile phones
You shall need to download the program Nokia Suites for your model from www.nokia.com . It is possible that your mobile phone to have limitation regarding the size of the application, therefore start testing with 128 Kbytes modules and then go to higher volumes (512 Kbytes etc.). With Nokia Suite application you will transfer the JAR files into the mobile phone, irrespective of this thing is done by USB or by Bluetooth.

Motorola mobile phones
For those having Motorola phones, a validation procedure has to be passed as to run Java applications. More information at
http://forums.mobiledia.com/topic48885.html and at http://www.ic.sunysb.edu/Stu/cdigiamo/tutorial/v220/tut.html

There is a need to download and run an Application Loader from http://developer.motorola.com/?path= (first and last option) and then you will be able to download and run Java applications. Alternatively, MIDWAY program can be downloaded and run from  http://developer.motorola.com/?path= .

Sony Ericsson mobile phones
If you have Sony-Ericsson mobile phones, than you can directly try to use one file and MIDP 2.0 version. If it doesn’t work, you will have to follow the principles exposed above. It is possible that a special software to be needed for uploading Java applications from www.sonyericsson.com .

Samsung mobile phones
1. You will surely need Samsung uploader. Download the PC Studio for your model from www.samsung.com.

2. Next, you have to transfer the desired files (both .jad and .jar) in the folder "other files" of the mobile phone.

3. Enter the code *#9998*4678255# (that means: *#9998*INSTALL#), or *#9998*52824678255# (that means *#9998*JAVAINSTALL#) and the message of activation will come.

4. Then, you have to go to the above mentioned .jad file and click "Options".

5. You will be asked if you want to install the application. You shall say: Yes.

6. If you will be asked: "Va zice Non Secure Are you sure to install?". You shall say: Yes.

7. If you want to unset the Java install locking, you will have to enter again the above mentioned codes.

In the past I recommended the following link: http://d500.subtitles.de/main.php?l=tut_irda.

Another testimony for installation that I found is as follows:
"I finally succeeded in installing some java games to my Samsung E250 via bluetooth. I thought I would share the info on how I do it here because it seems to be a frequent unanswered question on various forums. You will need a *.jad and a *.jar file for your game.

1) Download Softick PPP and Samsung Java Uploader.exe . Also JADmaker if required.

2) Install SoftickPPP according to this Polish website. I don't understand Polish, but the pictures tell enough of the story. Set up your bluetooth COM ports in the SoftickPPP bluetooth/serial settings. My Bluetooth COM ports are either 24, 25 or 26. I leave them all ticked.

3) Enter *#52828378# on the phone to access the Java Test Menu. Choose OTA type setting, choose Serial bearer OTA. Click select. (This seems to need to be changed back to GPRS bearer OTA for Samsung PC Studio to connect)

4) Start SoftickPPP. Click on cancel for the missing USBPort.dll error message. Accept bluetooth connections for DUN and Serial connections on the phone.

5) Choose 'Activate PPP' by right clicking on the icon in the taskbar. Accept connections on phone again.

6) Start 'Uploader.exe' and then add the required jad file. Leave the program open.

7) If you are not still in the Java Test Menu then enter *#52828378# on the phone again. Select 'Serial test', 'PPP Up', 'Bluetooth' on phone, 'Serial download'. My phone sometimes restarts at this point in which case I have to choose 'Shutdown PPP" in the taskbar icon and then re-activating it once the phone has restarted and then re-do step 7 after entering the Java Test Menu again.

A Java splash screen should appear with a progress bar showing the upload of the file. The game then starts automatically.

There we go. It works for me. "

 Some Samsung mobile phones (e.g. G600)

These models seems to require another procedure like below:

Here is what you should do:
1) Download both the .jar and the .jad file of the desired application.
2) Using the USB cable or bluetooth, transfer both the .jar and .jad files to the phone's memory NOT to the memory card or the game WON't install
3) Just navigate to the .jad files on the phone and install option would be there (or just press OK after selecting the game)

How to install the application in Java Mobile enabled phones

It is possible now to have the Holy Scriptures on your mobile phone and to read it wherever you are due to the Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) technology in 1.0 and 2.0 versions, developed for Java applications.

A good advice is to try in the beginning the MIDP 1.0 / 128 Kbytes version, and progressively to advance to MIDP 2.0 and larger volumes (512 Kbytes or more).

The application is available for MIDP 2.0, MIDP 1.0. You have only to select one table on the field MIDP2.0 or MIDP1.0, according to the desired Bible version. Then, you shall make a click on the JAR (Java Archive) file in order to obtain the software to be installed on your mobile phone.

I recommend you to start with STARTER(MIDP1.0old) edition, then to continue with INTERMEDIATE(MIDP1.0), and in the end, if the mobile phone supports this thing, to try to install the ADVANCED (MIDP2.0) edition. Also, start with 128 kbytes volumes, continue with 512 kbytes, and at the end try the version in one file.

There are cases where the mobile phone requires so called JAD (Java Descriptor) files. These JAD files has to be uploaded, on this case, together with the desired JAR files(s).

There are different methods to download the applications in your mobile phone as follows:
1. Directly from Internet by using a WAP or GPRS connection
2. By using the infrared port of the mobile phone
3. By wireless Bluetooth access to the mobile phone
4. By cable link between PC ad mobile phone
5. If none from the above cases are valid

Next, we shall examine each case in order to have a successfully installation of the software.

1. Directly from Internet by using a WAP or GPRS connection

If your have Internet access on your mobile phone (e.g. WAP or GPRS), it is enough to access https://biblephone.intercer.net/wap/  from the browser of the mobile phone, and to access the desired Bible version, and then to make an option about MIDP1.0 or MIDP2.0, and finally to select the desired module (e.g. one or more). After the last selection, the desired version will be downloaded on your mobile phone.

Many phones have only this option for installing JAVA appplications.

2. By using the infrared port of the mobile phone

Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones.

If you don't have access to Internet directly from your mobile phone, then you shall have to pass to this step requiring to have infrared ports on your mobile phone and on the computer.
a. On this case, you will download the application by using the computer from the Internet (i.e. JAR files).
b. Once the application is downloaded (preferable on the desktop) you will have to activate the infrared port on the mobile phone and align it with the infrared port of the computer (preferable laptop).

c. Then a window will appear asking what file you want to send to the mobile phone. Next, you will select the downloaded JAR file, and after OK, the mobile phone will ask you if you want to load that file. You say YES and the application will be downloaded on your mobile phone.
d. Probably, you will be asked by the mobile phone where you want to save it (e.g. on the games or applications directories). After you made this selection, the file will be ready to be loaded for run.
The displaying preference can be set inside the application in order to have larger fonts, full screen display etc.

3. By wireless Bluetooth access to the mobile phone

Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones.
This situation is similar with the infrared case. You have only to activate Bluetooth access on your mobile phone (check if exists) and on the computer (check if exists).

4. By cable link between PC ad mobile phone
Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones.
On this case the steps are as follows:

a. On this case, you will download the application by using the computer from the Internet (i.e. JAR files).
b. Once the application is downloaded (preferable on the desktop) you will have to set up the wired connection between the mobile phone and the computer. Next, you will start the synchronization / data transfer application and download the JAR file in your mobile phone. Surely, you will have to consult the CD of your mobile phone.
c. By this application you shall transfer into your mobile phone the JAR file in the games or applications directories. Next, you will have to select for run the JAR desired file.

5. If none from the above cases are valid
On this unhappy case, I recommend you to find a friend with a laptop having infrared / Bluetooth capabilities, or to buy a data link cable, or to change your current model of mobile phone.
Unfortunately, some models of mobile phones require only WAP/GPRS in order to download and run Java applications.

Sometimes there is a need for a special uploader software for specific mobile phones. Therefore check the documentation of them and also the page for specific models.

Why so many versions? Simple, because not all the mobile phones support the Bible in one file with MIDP 2.0 (the most advanced for the time being).
