Introduction: Opera Mini on Psp

NetFront browser is too slow for your psp??
try opera mini for the high speed perfomance i'll show u how to prepare all things needed here~

Step 1: Things You'll Need

1. A hacked PSP (Phat or Slim) (Recommended 5.00 M33-6 FW)
2. A PC (to get the files)
3. An USB cable or an Memory Stick adapter
4. A Memory Stick (with at least 20 MB free (I don't have the exact MB # that PSPKVM and Opera Mini takes but I think that 20 MB should be enough))
5. An Internet connection (both on your PSP and in your PC)

Step 2: Get Files

-get PSPKVM 0.5.1 here (j2me launcher)

Place in the folder X:/PSP/GAME5XX/ were X: is the letter of your drive (copy the ENTIRE pspkvm folder!).

-get Opera Mini here

choose sony ericsson w850i (compatible one for psp)

and download the jar file!

Place in root Folder X:/

Step 3: Let's Begin

Now, click on "Find Applications", and select the file "opera-mini-advanced.jar" (should be on the root). Press O and it should ask you if you want to install the app, click yes (the bottom options are with [Select] and [Start] if you haven't already figured it).

Choose the device J2ME 480*272 (this adjusts Opera to the PSP screen size).


Wait to it to finish.

Done!

Step 4:

If you did everything correctly, "Opera Mini" should be now on your main PSPKVM menu.

Click on it to start Opera Mini.


To change the settings...
Launch Opera Mini.
Go to Menu>Tools>Settings.

You can choose an custom color theme, font size (I recommend small), and more.

That's it!

Step 5: Troubleshooting Steps

this is troubleshooting step from poparoo (thanx):

1-Start PSPVKM
2-Go to network set up. Press start to launch
3- click your network name. Press start
4- wait for it to finish and click done. Press start
5-Press Select to go back to the main page
6- Start opera mini!

Note : Your network needs to be configured on your PSP before you do it.

author
riccolesmana (author)maxpower492009-06-28

err.. so far, there's no flash player yet... probably opera mini will add flash player on the next release...

nvm-commenting from opera mini!

author
codongolev (author)codongolev2009-06-09

okay- back to computer. typing is a little rough- if you could give some instruction on that, that would help a lot. I think I'll stick to the psp browser. but this is great to have around for times where psp browser doesn't cut it (instructables, for instance).

sorry for the late respond. unluckily pspvkm doesn't release the virtual keyboard from psp system. at the first time, you'll be confused about the keyboard. after several using the keyboard you'll suddenly able to take it easy.
