Bittorrent Client for mobiles [Symbian and Java]

We've been using tons of bittorrent clients for P2P file sharing in our computers but now we have now got such bittorrent clients for mobile phones too. Applied Mobile Research Group (AMORG) from Hungary has developed the two bittorrent clients that will work in symbian based phones and java enabled phones.

Symtorrent is the first symbian OS based bittorrent client which supports multiple torrent downloads with both download and upload options. It has every feature that a basic torrent client should have and works in the Symbian OS 3rd and 5th edition. More information on Symtorrent in the official webpage

Mobtorrent is the bittorrent client for the JAVA powered phones so you don't need to worry if you don't have s60 phones.

Also, both of these tools are released under GNU GPL license and hence are free and open source tools. Hope this is informative for you guys. :)

Changing screen resolution of Java games

Ever wondered how to change the screen resolution of the java games to suit for your Nokia phone. Here I am going to talk about the ways of changing the screen resolution size of the java games.

The .jar files are nothing but just the archived files so you can use winrar to open the jar file in your PC. The jar files consist of a special folder meta-inf which consists of a file with the few important information about your java games.

What you have to do is open this in a text editor and add the following lines at the end of the file.

Nokia-MIDlet-Original-Display-Size: xxx,yyy
Nokia-MIDlet-Target-Display-Size: zzz,www
Nokia-MIDlet-Original-Display-Size: 176,208
Nokia-MIDlet-Target-Display-Size: 240,320
First one is the original resolution of the game and second one is the target size of the game.

Finally save the in your jar file and there you go.

This might look a bit harder and confusing for the new people so there are the java resizing softwares out there to change the screen resolution of the .jar files. One of them is a software JarResize. You can google for this software and use this software to easily change the screen resolution of the jar file for your Nokia phones.
