Hi guys,

I'm very pleased by my Kaiser (bougth from HTC). great features, feels great also, GPS great, communication tools great... The only problem I've run into is JAVA. On my kaiser the java midlets don't run...
I've noticed that once I've downloaded the Mini Opera 4 and tried to run it. The instalation worked as it should but when I've tried to run it all I get is the gif image with the running man (I guess is the midlet loading notification) but after that the application is closing (including the JAVA manager). I've tried other java applications and all are installed ok but I wasn't being able to run them (the same behavior).
I've thought that maybe it's becasue of the JAVA manager so I've installed first the Esmertec Jbed java manager and after that the MIDlet Manager (TAO Intent) but with no better luck... On Esmertec Jbed I get the same behavior as with the default java manager and with MIDlet manager I cannot even install any java midlet.

1) Did anyone had this kind of behaviour or anybody knows what should I do in order to get the JAVA midlets running?

2) becasue the Midlet Manager didn't let me to install any midlets and I've read also on the wiki Midlet Bible that it's worse than Esmertec Jbed I've uninstalled it from "Remove programs" (and it's not there anymore) but it still appears on my Programs list (and if I click on it it opens).
Do you know how can I remove it completly from my kaiser?

Thank you for your time,
Emil

1, welcome to XDA-Devs

2, the reason it doesn't run is also stated in the Bible: you're using a non-Western regional settings.

There're two fixes for your problem:

a, set your reg settings to ANY Western region (including Eastern countries otherwise only using Western alphabet; for example, Estonia)

b, install the just-reviewed 2.1 version of Jbed (it's at the bottom of the MIDlet Bible), it doesn't have this problem (but doesn't support sound). See the UPDATE (11/23/2007).

Thank you Menneisyys.
Yes the encoding was the problem... Now it works
Again thank you.

Regarding the complete removal of the Midlet Manager? It's not on the "Remove program" list anymore but it appears on the Program list and if I click on it it opens.. So it's still installed. Do you know how can I remove it?

Anyway, thank you again for your great help

Ok I've managed to remove the MIDlet Manager for good

I've removed it from \Windows\Startup\Programs, deleted the \Storage\Programs\TAO folder and also I've deleted all the entries in the registry that contains the "tao" word (which was the special word that I didn't know until I've looked again over what MIDlet Manager is).

OK, great forums and great community. Glad to be part of it.
All the best,
Emil
