How To Install Java Apps/Games in Samsung Star 3G S5603/S5600

Welcome back in another great tutorial from us about How to Install Java Games & applications for  Samsung star 3G S5603 or S5600 Preston. Just to let you know that, Samsung uses its proprietary Touchwiz OS Technology For their famous touch phones like, samsung star, star 3G, Preston, Omnia HD etc., And they have not provided the support for external apps to run in Samsung Star 3G. So here is a tutorial & explanation on How to Install Java games & applications. (Its not my hack, got this trick from a forum of orkut discussion.  So I will not take credit for that. )

Back up all your data like phonebook, SMS, Music & files before using this tutorial.

So let us start with it. . .

Resources Required :

1. JAD Creator: Download Here ..

..(in case you have only JAR file)

2. TK File Explorer 

3. Samsung PC Studio : You  must have got it with your brand new Samsung star 3G

Steps to Unlock Star 3G:

Step 1. Connect Your Star 3G handset in PC Studio Mode

Step 2. Open Samsung PC Studio & Disconnect your Phone from software by right clicking the icon of phone. (Not from your USB)

Above step is must don’t  open TK file explorer before that.

Step 3. Open TK File explorer

Go To >> Settings

Select COM Port whatever available as shown in figure & Keep rest things as it is. Click OK.

Step 4. Go To  FILE >>Connect

Then the bottom dialogue box will open.

Go To> EXE > Java > Games

Step 5 : Create new folder in Games  of the name of your Java Game or App. E.g, Opera

Then Open it (It must be blank)  >> Then copy paste your JAR & JAD file there. (You can also navigate from upside dialog box & then download it. Its complicated, so better Copy & Paste)

And that’s it repeat same steps if you want to add more. Then GO to File >> Disconnect

Now you can remove Your Samsung star 3G from USB

Step 6 :

On your keypad type code : *#6984125*#

Then from the list  Select > Internals

Then Enter following password or unlock code there *#9072641*# touch Confirm.

Then Select > Storage Mode

Now first click Update Java DB

Then scroll down & click  Update Apps Database

Guess What You are done  ….

Go back to your phone & application >> Games & More & you ll see your new apps or game appearing & working cool with your star 3G Device.

Please post your queries here & tell me whether its working or not or whatever problem you get so that I can give you the best solution.

Worked for you ?  > > Comment here & we love appreciations

    • @prase_14

      You avoide to drag & drop. You better download from upper window by right clicking it. OR simply copy & paste it in some folder which have same name as your game/app.

      E>G if you are making folder for OPERA>.JAD & OPERA.JAR Keep it in folder named OPERA

      • manoj

        dear juba,

        when i disconnected the device and opened the TTK explorer the COM feild is empty… kindly suggest… my no is 09962554332 and my mail id is i was trying the same procedure for past 6months…

        Manoj K

        • If you want to get Com port then go to control panel and see phone and modem option you can see the port no so write this port no in to TK file explore text box.I make all type of procedure to install but TK file explore software GIVE error when i copy and paste.If you have any solution then Please Post comments for it.MehulPanchal

          • Thanks Mehul for helping biddies out here.

  • harish

    I was done all procedure (Step 1 to 6) perfectly according to your tutorial but finally when i opened application >> Games & More, the newer installed applications is not appearing. But when i explored phone by TK file explorer it shows the copied items. Please comment.. Thanking you

    • Hello Harish,

      You might have missing something in those steps.

      Have you created the folder for that jar & jad files in GAMES & MORE folder ?

      Because only this is when you’ll get this error

      • Sunny

        Hi Amol,
        This is sunny. Can i run thease same steps of TKFile Explorer for my Samsung Star W (WiFi) model as well. or what would be the best step for the same.


  • sandeep


    Will these steps also applies to Samsung Star WIFI S5233W.
    Please provide the steps for this phone as well.

    I have some more questions for you.. if possible please provide the detsils

    Will i be able to use google talk on my phone after installation of 35983__Nimbuzz.jar application.

    I also can’t see my Orkut communities using web browser error message says ” page is too large”. I also tried mobile version of orkut but could not fine the communities there.

    is there any way i can get these on my phone.

    Thanks in advance.


    • Hello Sandeep,
      I havent tried it on Star WIFI yet. But try it if the unlock code is working then it is fine, But DOnt force anything on it. If it works simply then only try it.

      Again, If you install Nimbuzz, You can do google chat on your phone easily even yahoo chat too.

      Last suggestion is go to from mobile & Directly download some apps from there. You will not need any type of unlocking.

      Try it & lemme know , so i can provide other suggestions

  • sandeep


    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Yesterday, i could manage to install Nimbuzz on phone and gtalk as working as expected. But i can’t make voice call as it says your phone does not support voice recording from third party software like nimbuzz.. do we have any alternate to it.

    Also i managed to install opera mini browser but it also not able to open the Orkut communities. i tried to open the full version of Orkut as well but no luck. Can i get some help here as well.

    I will visit this site and let you know.

    Thanks & regards,

    • Hii Sandeep,

      Voice recording is not supported on this phone for its own software as well as thir party ones.

      Secondly , to install orkut full version, go to from your mobile browser. and it will work fine

  • sandeep


    This phone has its own voice recorder and its working fine for me as well. Is this what you are talking about or is there any way we can make use of this in gtalk or yahoo.

    • Namaskar Santosh,

      Yaha pai likhi gayi method Star s5603 ke liye hai aur tum ye star s5233 pe try kar rahe ho. isiliye ye chal nahi raha. Agar aap ko games ya applications install karne hai to aap directly apake mobile browser se par jaiye. Fir aaap waha pe listed koi bhi game ya application download & install automatically kar sakate hai.

      Aapko shayad is badi procedure kii jarurat nahi padegi.

      Try kijiye aur mujhe bataiye agar se koi problem aa raha ho.

      • siddiq

        direct jad file dalne per bhi file not support batarahahe.. plz help?

        • Direct file nahi dal sakate. Jar or Jad dono file ek folder banake TK File explore se dalna padega
          . Please read whole procedure carefully & do it step by step.

    I have samsung star gt-s5233w. According to your steps, i went well, but i created a folder in games naming “applications-games”, and then i tried to create another folder in it, now when i try to delete that, I am not able to do that. Please help. Also, when i try to paste the jad and jar files in a folder, it doesn’t paste, i also tried clicking right of my mouse and pasting, but it doesn’t show any option to paste.

    Could you please help me out..

    Thanks a lot.

    • @Bhaskar


      Don’t create folder in games folder of name application. Just create folder you want for game or app. Mean first go to games & app >> then create folders of your games directly. You’re creating one extra folder, so it is not working for you

  • Sandeep

    How can we uninstall application on Samsung S233w. I want to uninstall NIMBUZZ and opera mini

    Hello Amol
    Purchased this phone(5603) a month before. I have downloaded many applications from net to my computer.
    After that tried the procedure to install these applications on my phone.
    But no luck 🙁

    My very first problem is, when I connect my phone to Samsung PC studio, the PC studio starts up properly. But the Phone icon is not displayed properly.
    So from PC studio, I was not able to disconnect the phone.

    I tried to connect as mass storage, then disconnect the phone.
    After this tried to connect the phone in TK File explorer. Here also I didn’t get any luck.

    Can you please help me out for this problem ?
    you can get in touch with my on my mail id –

    Many thanks in advance

      Also, my S5603 will not access It says access denied. I dont know if you have a workaround for that but all help is appreciated. Thanks in adv!!

      • Try to open,

        There must be no problem in openung , or you can search from google from your mobile browser, then open it from there …

    • Hii sunil ,

      You must paste .Jad & .Jar files together in a folder, check wheather you are doing it correctly

      • Sunil

        Sorry been offline for a while. Your diagnosis is correct amol. I realized that I was not pasting the .jad and .jar files together. Works perfectly now. Thanks !!!

    but when i open the game it gives error – “Java error. Invali Format”
    how to solve this issue..

    • Have you updated the java databse ??

      Or it is also possible that the game you are installing is not compatible with phone at all.

    i have my samsung 3g mobile. when i tried the steps to “connect” as suggested to install the jad file using TK file explorer i cant connect and i receive a error massage as ” the communication link is lost”.

    can anyone suggest me with a solution..

    with regards,

    • Have you disconnected phone from New PC Studio. If you did then follow each step carefully, you must be missing something

      • vignesh

        hai yaar,, i have disconnected the phone shown on right top corner..still it is not connecting via TK

      • vignesh

        i cant install jad creator to my system too

        • It does not get installed, You can use it directly. Just drag & drp jar file to it , it will create a jad instantly.

  • Hi,
    I have samsung star mobile.I tried tk explorer it worked but following code is not working for my phone *#6984125*# .Do u have any other code for it?Im finding it more than a week.I need ur help plzzzz help me.

  • DarkAngelS

    I´ve ended up on this page searching for the Admin Code for Samsung Blade.
    I´ve tried *#6984125*# and several others, but none seems to work..

    Btw, on another subject, try copying the games/ programs ( just the .jar file ) to your cell, and then run it from there. It will automatically install and run them.
    Works for me.

    If anyone knows the Samsung Gt-S6500V ( AKA Samsung Blade ) Admin Code for Pre-Config Settings, I´d honnestly appreciate the answer.

    Thank you very much.

  • Hi Amol I want to unlock my *3G to install applications suggested by u i.e. NIMBUZZ ,UCIWEB ,WALLPAPER CREATOR etc. but i have following querries . 1) will my cell be unlocked permanantly ? 2)should I download applications before or after unlocking ?3) Is there any risk for my cell ? 4)which flash player will be suitable for my *3G ? kindly reply . thanking you .

    • Hii Pankaj, You seem to be very possessive with your phone. Here are answers to all your questions.
      1) This trick will not unlock your phone permanently, You need to follow same for each time you install applications. To unlock permanently you need to upgrade the firmware to some European version.
      2) You must download apps before unlocking.
      3) No risk for your cell in this trick but risk is there in case of FIRMWARE UPGRADING.
      4) Flash player cant be installed in Star 3G, recent flash version flash lite is not supported. But good news is you can play all flash files (i.e. .swf files) by default in Samsung star 3G

    If the java .jar doesn’t install do the following

    1. JAD Creator: create a .jad file and copy both .jar and .jad to a folder your created in “My files” then go there from the phone and click on the jad file and it is installed

    ..(in case you have only JAR file)

    I have Samsung S5233W. I went to step 6 to make sure I have it ready for that, every thing was OK until it asked for the password, I couldn’t enter *#9072641*# simply because I don’t have the screen keyboard! So, must I have an external keyboard; or there is another workaround?

      Best Way To Install Apps-
      1)download the game or software u want to download but it should be of .jar format.for eg’ i hav downloaded NFSSHIFT.jar
      2) open notepad
      3)copy this to notepad:
      install APPLICATIONNAME.jar
      4)now replace APPLICATIONNAME with the game you hav downloaded…in my case i will replace it with NFSSHIFT
      5)now save it as APPLICATIONNAME.html..again replace APPLICATIONNAME with ur game name..
      6)now transfer the html file and jar file to your fone via bluetooth or usb
      7)on your fone go to my files and then click on APPLICATIONNAME.html..then click on the link

          While using TK EXPLORER you will see the window in two parts . one with the options of your phone and other window allows you to explore your computer. there will be many drives and so. just open your file location., there in tk explorer and drag it down to the games section of your phone. after that … well amol wagh is the leader

  • ABHI


  • Tim

    Hi, great post thanks – I really appreciate people like you helping everyone else out – you really make a difference in this world!!!

    I have the same problem as mentioned above.. TKFileExplorer showing error “Error: The communication link is lost.” it does this after waiting for a while (I assume while it’s talking to the phone as other COM ports came back immediately).

    For those who don’t know which port – go into Device Manager (hold down windows-key and press Pause/Break – or via control panel) and under Modems there should be a Samsung Mobile Modem – look at it’s properties (dbl-click on it) and select the Modem tab – it’ll show it’s Port at the top (in my case COM9).

    Any idea on how to get past this “communication link lost” error? or is there another way to transfer the files?

    Thanks very much
    Tim H

  • Vic

    Actually I discovered it as the Samsung s5600 Preston

  • ashish

    this stuff is cool but keep in mind it is something like tampering wid ur fone software because the codes (*#6984125*# & *#9072641*#)
    applying this code may make ur fone unstable (if used it many times)
    i hav used this codes many times on sgh l700 two month ago
    and now the phone gives diff kinds of error and sometimes automatically gets swithched off.

    now i am having star 3g and still going to do the same. but only twice or thrice

    am not discouraging it. but just giveng u a warning

      It will be free under warranty.
