OK, I’ve been through this twice now, so I figure it is time to write it down. Yesterday I had to do a hard reset on my HTC 4300 running Windows Mobile 5. I would LOVE to upgrade to 6, but I’m not holding my breath on that one.
I had previously had a version of the Gmail for Mobile application installed and working, but forgotten how I’d done it. After a couple of hours repeatedly trying to install the current version 188.8.131.521, upgrading my Java Intent MIDlet Manager, trying to install again, downloading the .jar directly and more, I had no luck.
I finally decided to try the 1.0 version of the applet. Viola! That worked! If anyone from Google happens to read this, you may want to test the current version with WM 5 since there are a lot of phones out there waiting for their providers to upgrade.
Here is the direct link to the 1.0 jar file.
