Default Gmail 2.0.6, GoogleMaps 2.3.2, Opera Mini 4.2 ALX Files

Please Login to Remove!

I did about 6 hours of searching to get the latest versions of Gmail, GoogleMaps, and Opera Mini on my new Blackberry Pearl v4.3. The internet community was very helpful with getting ALX install files for GoogleMaps and OperaMini, but completely failed on a non-OTA (over the air) new version of Gmail (2.0). Gmail version 1.1 through ALX install was available in a couple places.

I use SERO on Sprint and so I get unlimited data usage, but not on the Blackberry network (that means no Blackberry internet browser, and no blackberry email).

All my installations require an install over USB through Blackberry Desktop Manager with ALX/COD files because the Blackberry internet browser is missing.

I am using a 8130 Pearl with v4.3 and all the linked programs may or may not work on other version of the BB.

To install these programs:
1. unzip each program to a separate folder on your desktop
2. run Blackberry Desktop Manager (I installed mine via the CD that came with the phone)
3. click Application Loader > Next
4. click the Add button and navigate to the folder of the program you want to install. The only file that will show up is the ALX file. Open it. You're done!

Note: you probably want to back up the ZIP's because these files are hard to find.

GoogleMail_2.0.6_for_BB.zip
Google_Maps_2.3.2_for_BB.zip
Opera_Mini_4.2_for_BB.zip

File Type: zip Opera Mini 4.2 for BB.zip (104.0 KB, 3175 views)
File Type: zip GoogleMail 2.0.6 for BB.zip (258.9 KB, 2049 views)

Thanks a bunch for the files you posted. Very helpful.

I uploaded these to my BB 7520.

The program loaded fine, but it seems that I am not able to place text into any text boxes other than the www box at the top of the screen.

I can type a url in with no problem, but cannot get text to carry over into say the google search box or the mini opera logon forum text boxes etc.

When I select a text area and press enter it takes me to a blank screen to type on. I can type but when I'm done and I press enter again it simply does a carriage return with the cursor and does not carry the text into the text box.

Is this just how it is? I've now tried all versions of mini opera.

Would greatly appreciate help.

Thanks

I updated the original post to match my crackberry post.

Links are fixed.

I'm on Sprint SERO as well and searched for these exact files for a good while when I first got my Pearl.

Glad to see someone was considerate enough to track down the latest versions and take the time to post.

Thanks.

Thanks so much!

however, when I tried to install Gmail mobile, I recieved a message that read "A fatal error has occured while updating your device's software. Please try again."

Any help?
