New MXit Version 5 Download on PC

UPDATE: Click here – — !!! New Run MXit V5 on PC !!! — for instructions!

The easiest way is to go to 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.

Here’s howto:

  1. Open the .jad file in Notepad,
  2. then download the file specified in it next to “MIDlet-Jar-URL: ”
    (Copy paste that URL into your internet browser; for example:
  3. 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”.
  4. 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!
MXit V3 – MPowerPlayer Quick Start Link
MXit V3 – MPowerPlayer Quick Start Link – Slower.

You can change your number on MXit 5 via MPowerPlayer by doing the following:

* Download MXit from from your PC. (You will save a .jad file to your computer)

* Open the .jad file with Notepad.

* Change this line:
MIDlet-1: MXit,/icon.png,MXit
to something like:
MIDlet-1: MXitDEF,/icon.png,MXit
which makes MPowerPlayer think it is a new program and won’t remember your login number.

* Save the .jad file.

Open the .jad in MPowerPlayer (File->Open).

You will have to do this change everytime you want to use that number you associated with MXitDEF. Beause the .jar link in the .jad expires after a while.


Once again, DEF is on the forefront of MXit on PC 🙂
Bringing you the newest information first!

    Mxit is great! and nobody can blame Mxit if their relationships go wrong
    because the fault then lies by you. Were you so boring that your spouse
    had to go on Mxit? or was your love-life not great now they get better over Mxit? Redirect yourself. Trust me, i know what im talking about!

    Hey! Im from South Africa but living in Canada.. and i forgot my mxit password and wanna log on! and my Vodacom simcard doesnt work here 🙁

    How do i get my password ??!! 🙁

    PLEASE HELP! lol 🙂 x
    Hay! Did you delete MXit? Because then your save password on the phone is gone and you gotta remember it! If you didn’t it should still open up if it’s on your phone! Try to get your vodacom simcard activated there with International Roaming from Vodacom! Email them or check out – then when it’s active you could try send your password forgot SMS! Or you have to send your SIM card to someone in SA and ask them to request your pin via SMS!
