UPDATE: Click here – — !!! New Run MXit V5 on PC !!! — for instructions!
The easiest way is to go to www.mxit.co.za/wap/ on your computer and proceed to download. It should tell you “Load v5.0 for Nokia-6270”
When you click Normal at the end of all the questions it will give a .jad file to save.
Save this .jad file to your computer, then
open that .jad file in MPowerPlayer!
This always works!
You will have to do this everytime you want to run MXit Ver. 5 on your computer
If you don’t want to download MXit everytime you want to Run MXit v5 then follow these instructions:
Yes, the .jar file linked to in the .jad expires after a while. So you need to save it on your computer because it expires on the server.
- Open the .jad file in Notepad,
- then download the file specified in it next to “MIDlet-Jar-URL: ”
(Copy paste that URL into your internet browser; for example: http://ww2.mxit.co.za/wap/client/source/4195495727f67.jar)
- Then, change the “MIDlet-Jar-URL: ” line in notepad to just have the XXXXXX.jar part in it. (for example “MIDlet-Jar-URL: 4195495727f67.jar”.
- Then have the .jar you downloaded and the .jad in the same directory, and open the .jad file in MPowerPlayer.
There we go 🙂
OR, If you are desperate to use any MXit, you can still use the old MXit V3.0 .jar!
Download this MXit jar (or this MXit jar) to your computer and open it with MPowerPlayer!
