Freedom in Java Applets (AKA No More Errono=910)
Posted by Jon Westfall in "Windows Phone Customizations & Content" @ 07:00 AM
While I use Nuevasync to get my Gmail on my Windows Mobile devices, I still like to use Google's Java applet from time to time to fill in some gaps (such as search) that Nuevasync doesn't currently support. This stopped being an option earlier this year as the Java applet wouldn't load on my Dash 3G. It would download, and then fail to install giving an error reading "errono=910 Application Authorization Failure". While I'm not sure if it's an evil carrier lockdown or something less sinister, I was quite annoyed by this. Until today when I found this FAQ for the software product AviatorCalc. Seems that AviatorCalc is having the same issues with Windows Mobile devices as the Gmail applet. And their solution, downloading a new version of Esmertec Jbed seems to do the trick (FAQ contains a link for the download). I now have Google's Java applet running on my Dash 3G again! Highly likely this will work on other WinMo handsets too - I personally haven't tested them yet.
