Talking NEW MIDlet Manager with Google Sat Maps!!!

HI ALL,
risidoro is back!


EDIT: VERSION 11.1.7.1023 IS NO MORE THE LATEST ONE. I'VE PUBLISHED THE MOST UPDATED VERSION (.1034) HERE. PLS USE THAT ONE AND DO NOT CONSIDER ANY MORE THE POST BELOW!!!



I'm here to release a New and Improved version of the great:

Intent MIDlet Manager version 11.1.7.1023

This new MIDlet Manager comes from the new HTC Herald ROM, version 1.2.405

This new version is JTWI 1.0 compliant and SUPPORTS Google's SATELLITE Maps (of course, you need to download Google Maps' client from www.google.com/gmm).

This release also supports sending SMSs from Opera Mini 3.0 (mini.opera.com)!!!

Some Details about the program:
Developer: Intent
Name: MIDlet Manager
Version: 11.1.7.1023
Build: 20060907
JWTI v.1.0 Compliance!


------- HOW TO INSTALL ------------

- Download Risidoro's Intent MIDlet Manager version 11.1.7.1023

- extract the cab (inside the archive) somewhere in your PC (e.g. Desktop)

- copy to somewhere in your PocketPC (e.g. \storage card)

- in your PocketPC, navigate with File Manager to the cab and tap on it to install

- when asked, choose to install in the Device (and NOT in Storage Card!)

- reboot when asked

PS: It can be installed over previous version (or in roms where the old midlet is included)!


-------- WORKING MIDLETS ---------------

So far, i've only tested it with the midlets i use the most.

- Google Maps runs fine. Satellite maps are supported!!!

- Opera Mini 3.0 runs OK too and supports SMS sending. Even softkeys works! Photo blog feature, however, is not supported

- Mobile GMaps, beta 1.30.08. Simply wonderful. Sat images for google and yahoo maps.

- MobileMule (latest beta) works ok.


-------- PROBLEMS SO FAR (and possible solutions) ---------------

- a user wasn't able to use this version to connect to the Internet through a proxy
---> use a direct connection to the Internet; check your proxy; downgrade to the old MIDlet manager version.

- the cab cannot be installed due to a security warning
---> soft-reset and retry; use MS Certificate Powertoy for Windows Mobile 5 to disable all the security checks

- If you want to revert back to the old version of the Intent MIDlet manager:
Download the Intent MIDlet manager version 10.1.7.551



Bye bye

ENJOY

Thanks for the file, Risidoro. I have downloaded it, and will try it later. Good to have a better midlet manager.

For those concerned with using gmaps on their phone, however, there are a couple free native Windows Moble programs which will display such maps. I find them much more convenient than using a Java midlet, no matter how good the midlet manager might be.

One such program is called Map4PDA, another one is Virtual Earth Mobile. And there is also Microsoft's new beta "Live Search". There may be more, these three come to mind right away. (I don't have the URLs handy. You can find them with a search.)

There is also another Java midlet map program called MGMAPS, which I find more flexible than Google's GMAPS. (It will show the Google maps, or the Microsoft maps, or Yahoo maps, and has other more flexible features.) However, I still find it much simpler to use a Windows Mobile app, rather than a Java midlet.
