    Guys, how do we install Java games/apps in Samsung STAR?

    Whenever i try to open .JAR and .JAD files it says "file type not supported" although third party pre loaded apps like Google Maps work nicely.

    The guy in this site seems to have a solution using TKFileExplorer -http://kartikgajetech.blogspot.com/
    But the problem is that TKFileExplorer cannot detect my Samsung Star.In the PORT drop down menu nothing comes.Something SHOULD come like the picture below

    Is there an alternative way to make java apps work on Samsung Star ??

    I cancelled plan to take Star bcoz of damn poor support of apps.

    even a basic SE supports JAR so nicely

    Wat?? you need a firmware update to make apps run?? What kind of a phone is that?? And yea. No phone executes java better than SE. Comparing other manufacturers to SE on java implementation is baseless.

    @ dreamcatcher ,
    Stop se ass licking in every post , it was about samsung star , not se.

    @ raj

    Do you mean with latest firmware we can just open .jar files in phone to run it ? also will it run smoothly ? I'm skeptical since even mighty omnia hd have crappy java support.

    @ raj

    Does the new firmware allows to install java files by copy pasting , like nokia or se or do you still need special softwares ?

    Btw , any other improvement in new firmware ?
