So I just got the new RAZR v3x from Vodafone and tried loading some jar files on it... But was dismayed to find the Vodafone live menus stop you installing from the memory card... but there is a workaround.

1) connect the v3x to the pc using USB cable, connect to memory card
2) create kjar folder in the mobile directory on the flash card
3) copy jar / jad files into the kjar directory
4) on the phone browse to entertainment which displays all the java programs
5) select options > View storage Devices and check that 'ALL' is selected then press back
6) select [Install New] and a blank list displays
7) unplug the usb connection
8) if you are lucky a browser session displays a memory card moving, press 'BACK'
9) if you are really lucky a message displays showing memory available on card wait...
10) if all has gone well you now see the list of jars on the mem card !

install at will !

step 8 appears to be critical to this working... it does not work every time on my phone, so I power down and start from scratch then seems ok.

Hope this helps you all with original Vodafone Live firmware, now if I can find out how to unblock the network ports my newly installed instant messenger program might work !

peace and munt !

Welcome to Geekzone... Your IM program is probably connecting through the WAP APN, which will not give access to all ports. You should configure a new network with APN web.vodafone.net.nz which is a normal traffic APN.

hmm wish there was a menu for that on std firmware... the only place I found to configure the connection type was under email client setup. From which I can determine that I have 3 options

1) VFNZ Gateway
2) VFNZ Internet
3) VFNZ PXT

The java settings dont have anything relating to connection that I can edit as far as I can tell.


grrr love vodafone live... hate locked down java

Connection #2 (VFNZ Internet) is the one you want... Now you just have to find if the J2ME configuration, or the software itself, allow selecting which connection to use...

You can do a similar thing on the SonyEricsson v800.. put the games (.JAR) files on the MISC section and then going into the phone and selecting will install it.
I installed lots of lovely content this way (for TESTING purposes, i don;t have time to play games on my phone)

most java apps can browse HTML via the wap gateways, I know opera mini works fine with it.

Vodafone will be of no help, their helpline is very bad, fob you off to their stupid website, very lazy staff. At laest most other companies you can get a good operator but not vodafone.

This is what WE are here for!

You might just have to set the "VFNZ gateway" connection to use the APN: www.vodafone.net.nz and change it back when you want VLIVE. (of course vodafone unnessesarily block VLIVE and MMS from that APN) Idiots.
