Can not install java apps on my lg shine ke970

Hi, i cant seem to install any java apps.
i drop my jar and jad files into the "others" folder (via usb in mass storage mode) and when i access my phone it does not give me any options to install or setup or add or anything. it recognizes the files as java files but does not add any options to the options menu.

extracting the jar contents into the "others" folder does not seem to do anything either. i tried restarting the phone, using external memory, setting up the securities pins, creating a java settings account (as best i could), and thats about it.

i came across a review which claimed that the unlocked version of the ke970 was able to add applications, but not much detail was given about the locked phones. my ke970 is with t-mobile so i imagine it has to be unlocked.

please help!!

You have to use 'copy' from your computer folder and then 'paste' to others folder in ke970. if you drag and drop, it won't work.

Error on installing java games? i try to install a same game with the same phone, but my phone always saying that the download jar are invalid, while the oder phone installed the game correctly? please...


before install games to your phone, make sure the java games (click to go free java games list) is compatible with your mobile phones, know your phone first especially entertainment capability features, including operation system or platform (like symbian, windows mobile, java mobile, flash etc), display screen resolution (like 128x160, 176x208, 176x220, 240x320, 320x240, 352x416 etc), 3D java support etc. (get free java games here) . If you get any sort of error, it's possible the games isn't compatible/or is not designed for your model. You will need to obtain a specific version for your model.

first of all Make sure the game is in a jar format (*.jar file) not a zipped file (*.zip or *.rar), most of games here are .jar format. If it has the zip or rar extension open the file in Winrar/winzip (download winrar) and look at its contents, if it has lots of files like a.class and image files then rename the *.rar (or *.zip) file as *.jar and transfer that to your phone. If in the zipped file it has a jar file and other files, extract just the jar file and transfer it to your phone. some phone models also need .jad format file to install the game, check out this post: Create .Jad file for .jar format Java games and apps, download any of .jad generator tools, create your .jad file and transfer .jar and .jad file to your phone.

When transferring the java games to your phone via usb cable, bluetooth, infrared, memory card (how to transfer photos, ring tones, games to your phone), the games and applications folder may not appear, this is normal. All you have to do is copy the file to the root directory (the main folder) and the phone will put the files into the correct places itself. There is no need to put the game in the others folder as it will just be a waste of time and the game will not work.

open/run the jar file to install the games, then enjoy it.

Why can't I download jar by WAP just GPRS?

- You need to make sure your server handles the jad/jar MIME type correctly
- Be sure to double-check the URL in your jad file to point to the fully qualified path of the jar file

then type in *#9998*4678255# it should say "Activated"
you have to put the game the JAD file and JAR file from your pc to ur mobile memory card in the other folder (other folder in memory card).
When you have put the game JAD file and JAR file on to your mobile then move them both from your memory card others folder to your mobile memory others folder.
Now go to the mobile memory others foder where the game JAD file is or sowftware should be and press the top left corner selction button. then press yes. the game or software should go straight to the java world folder.
