Opera Mini 8 update 1 for Java and BlackBerry

  • 82.145.209.61 ip was delisted today from CBL. First ip seen (by me) with 'Illegal 3rd party exploits, including proxies, worms and trojan' generic red mark.

  • @corzioli, Opera Link has NOT been retired. I also don't think update 1 is version 8.1. I think its 8.0.xxxxx

  • I want to believe Opera Link hasn't been retired, but the truth is that it has been dysfunctional across all Opera browsers (I think) for much of this year, and the dev team has been likely given a gag order 🙂 because apart from a few polite, low-info canned responses, they've been pretty much tight-lipped about the whole affair. Seems to me that some much better syncing feature is in the works so we'll have to grin and bear the wait and embrace Opera's future. This is a calculated guess anyway, nothing firm... I'm thousands of miles away from Oslo so there ya go. 😃

  • Anyway, here's my real bother that needs an answer. I want to upgrade to this bug-fix version but since OL is broken, my bookmarks, history, speed dial etc. haven't been backed up and I'm REALLY SCARED that I may lose all of them in the process of upgrading since this is a simple JME browser. Is that fear founded or should I just go ahead with the upgrade?

  • corzioli, what makes you think Link doesn't work? wfm, although syncing takes several minutes, up to .5h

  • Well, well, well... Opera Link doesn't matter to me anymore. My phone was stolen over the weekend, and all the bookmarks, saved pages, my speed dial... all that went away with it. Most of those were curated over years. I had to manually export those from the older OMs to 8.0, and that took HOURS daily. There was a time Opera Link worked but that was maybe last year. .5 hours? Yeah right. Once I left it syncing for like an hour and the thing was STILL SYNCING just a few megabytes worth of data. Obviously nothing was happening.

    I'm afraid but that's the end of Opera for me. I'm finally going Android and Chrome has some ok data-saving capabilities, not to mention that it's 2 billion times better than Opera, and syncing is automatic moreorless.

    Good riddance, Opera.

  • Is there any chance of providing options like cloud storage space & cloud download in Opera mini for java?

  • issues related to font calculations ? 16 minutes with os 7.0 and 40 with 6.0 is not quite a record for fonts calculation on bb devices.

  • My wishlist for next version of opera for java
    (1)Themes:- we can change theme and appearance of opera as in uc browser or opera for desktop.
    (2)Better download manager:-A better download manager which shows speed of download , remaining time of download and views the folder to which the file is downloaded and we can change the folder if possible.
    (3)Box format for speed-dails as in touch screen phone should be made available for keypad phones also.
    (4)Phone manager:-A specific manager through which we can call or message any no. from phone book or any unknown number.
    (5)Better file manager:-A specific manager by which we can visit phone memory or memory card , add,rename or delete folders , copy,paste,rename or delete files and preview various files such as images,videos, songs etc.
    (6)Add & edit shortcuts
    (7)Pdf viewer:-please add a feature to open & read pdf files as most java phones can't open pdf.
    (8)Accounts list:-A bar to keep the record of accounts opened by opera mini.
    (9)Bookmark:-Please cut the bookmark bar from menu and put the bookmarks in another tab like home page and speed dail.
    (9)Image zoom view feature

  • And its a shame you have to moderate messages before they get posted. Now I know there are many others who write nasty things about opera on your forum.

    I really just want a normal straight-forward answer as to why you limit the download size of files being downloaded.

    Like if I had 1gb of data and I intend to try a 200mb download of an unmentioned software for a blackberry.
    You would cap me at 15mb or so. I find this quite a BUMMER... Is that not like saying "opera is not a great browser with great service"?

  • And its a shame you have to moderate messages before they get posted.

    Your post was probably caught by the automatic anti-spamn system.

    Probably to not overload the opera mini servers?

    It seems you need to write sth really nasty to get blocked. So mind your manners 🙂

    I don't think there is a hard limit in mini. Rather something on BB/mobile network, a timeout or a bug.

  • Please, I can't download opera8 to my nokia3208c. Its saying "invalid application for update". What should I do?

  • One of reasons could be that you have a "pre-installed" mini on your phone. Then updating from m.opera.com would not work, as this is signed with a different certificate. However, update from the OVI store should work.
    If there is no preinstalled mini, then try builds signed with different certificates on m.opera.com (verisigh, thawte).
    Or provide us more details - how exactly you are trying to install mini, from which site (or sd card?).

  • @navendukumar Delete cookies and try again. Failing that open 'debug:' url and post here Nokia/E7-00 user agent and correspondent info for 'Host'. I don't have any problem opening hindi news sites in mobile view as default with E6/Anna, server Host s24-06-05. If I understand correctly all news sites are opened in desktop view with Opera Mini for s60, right?
