How to install JAVA apps in Sciphone cellphones


One of the best things these phones have is the JAVA support, which gives us the power to add programs and games to the few it includes.

You should remember though that not every game and app out there will work on this phone. Many of them won't load and others will but you wont be able to move it inside because of lack of keyboard support with our Touchscreen.

In this post we will explain how to install the apps to test them if they work. In another post we will put a list of apps and games that work for this phone and the links to download them.

We should start with a .JAR file. I give you a sample with a game to try.

Othello_Deluxe_3D.jar

Connect the sciphone to the USB port of your computer and copy the file to the JAVA folder.
Once done, unplug the cable and in the phone menu go to "Documents", then "Memory Card" and go to the JAVA folder.

Here they are some chinese games you can install and it should be the file we just copied.
Let's click on it and select "Install"

A cup appears and the installation begins. In the middle it asks us if we are sure to install it and we answer YES.
Then let us decide where to install. We should select the memory card.

The installation continues and in the end we can decide if we want to launch the app.

We should test it to see if it works and if we like it. If not we can always go to the JAVA menu, then Java again and in the list of installed apps, just select the one we don't want and then select "Delete".
By doing this we uninstalled the app but the file is still on the memory card. To completely erase it we should go to the Java folder and delete it too.

  3. Same Here, I bought 2 I 68+ and none of them has the Java file. Connected one to the PC and created Java Folder, then copied Othello_Deluxe_3D.jar to the file. When I selected the copied file, there is no option to install. I also read somewhere that there was no Java Loader in the phone. could it be the reason???

  4. I copied the sample file given and it showed up on my phone, but it wouldn't allow me to install. I believe it's because the file is a zip. I tried to open it but it said something about the file being to big.

  5. it works! i didnt have the JAVA folder to. do this:

    1) Connect the sciphone to the USB port of your computer

    2)Than ill get two folders; one of the H:\ and one G:\ in the G:\ make a folder called JAVA.

    3) Put the Othello_Deluxe_3D.jar in it.

    4) Turn the connection with the sciphone and USB port of your computer off.

    5) Look in your Sciphone by ''Document'' and than ''Memory Card'' and than ''JAVA''

    6) Click on Othello_Deluxe_3D.jar and than click INSTALL (on Memory Card)

    (I have the Sciphone i68+)

    Good Luck ;) Thanks for this post Navegante!

  6. Well said LucSon.

    The thing with the two drives is that one is for the internal memory of the phone and the other is for the memory card (micro SD). First one of the two letters is the memory card and there should be the Java folder.

  7. Lucson's idea on "making a "JAVA" folder worked perfectly!!

  10. you dont need any java folder, just simply use the usb lead to transfer any java game onto ur memory card..open the game by using documents on the phone menu then navigate to the memory card and install whats listed, by clicking on it , it will ask if u want to install..............most games wont work anyway
