F480 Java install without wap. Tutorial & software
  1. Download Driver & File Explorer.
  2. Uncompress and execute Setup.exe.
  3. Connect F480 to PC. First time you should be prompted with a 'device installed and ready' message.
  4. Execute TkFileExplorer_2.2.exe
  5. Go to Settings - COM.
  6. Scroll down Port window: You should get just one COMxx option. Choose it and press OK.
  7. Go to File - Connect. You should get the F480 File System Tree at TkFileExplorer bottom half side.
  8. Go to /Exe/Java/Games
  9. Create a New Folder for your game
  10. At TkFileExplorer PC upper side select game JAD/JAR files and copy to F480 created folder using drag&drop or right button menu Download option.
  11. Repeat steps 9 & 10 for all games you want to install at a time.
  12. Disconnect USB cable
  13. Dial *#6984125*#
  14. Go to Internals (Master Key: *#9072641*#)
  15. Go to Storage Settings and select Update Java DB
Enjoy! ...and save money! ;)

You do not need to change Samsung USB mode to Qualcomm. Leave it at its default Samsung mode (if you do not understand this just do nothing :))
Once driver is installed, Samsung PC Studio 3 still works.

After executing Sansung PC Studio 3 I needed to restart my F480 to have TkFileExplorer working again. Consider this if you get some connect problem.

Other interesting thing:
TkFileExplorer allowed me to delete the 'built-in' game Photo Puzzle whitch is locked at F480 and cames inside folder /Exe/Java/Locked Games

Be careful with TkFileExplorer delete option!
it is a one-touch action!, it do not ask for confirmation.

mani444u 10-12-2008 23:49

sensesme 10-13-2008 09:25

I just repeated the procedure for the game Bejeweled you said and everything works for me.
Attached a screenshot of TkFileExplorer about files location:

mani444u 10-13-2008 11:24

i see, i noticed that you have a jad file in that folder can you tell me whee did you get that jad file from because i downloaded it and there was only a jar file, i am sure this is the reason

in samsung you need both .jar and .jad files to install game at all, look for jadmaker on the Net
