Make sure you download the version for Windows Mobile 5 from
or you can point your Q’s browser to http://xk72.com/wap and get it right from your phone!
Get the FULL MIDP 2.0 version. You’ll have to adjust the display settings a bit (its kind of small on the Q), but it works great for me.
Want to start downloading those cool Java games you see all over the internet and use them on your Motorola Q? Follow these steps:
IBM’s JVM for the SmartPhone is still in “evaluation” but it seems very stable.
If you don’t feel like digging through IBM’s site, you can get them from here, packaged as cabs:
install.pdf – from IBM – how to install (not needed), how to use.
J9_full 18.104.22.16860727-102926.CAB – full installation packed as CAB – Java Virtual Machine, Midlet manager, Midlet runner, libraries. Size after install – 3.4Mb
J9_tiny 22.214.171.12460727-102926.CAB – simplified installation. Without Java Virtual Machine (probably you don’t need), without debugging support, without eastern languages support. Only Midlet manager, Midlet runner, libraries. Installs automatically into main storage. Size after install – 2.3Mb
Just point your browser to these packages, or download and copy the cabs onto your Q.
Browse to it using your file Manager if you copied it manually. Run it.
All set! The midlet manager will show up as “J9″ in your programs folder.
