Jbed is an android application that helps android smartphone users use/run java J2ME based applications on their android powered smartphones. So, if you have got an Android Smartphone and want to run your favorite java apps from your old Nokia phone then this is the perfect app for you. Since, android doesn't have direct support for java based (jar) applications or games this app acts as an interface between java apps and android system and helps you run J2ME games and apps on your android smartphone.

So, without any delay grab the apk file from below and install it on your android powered smartphone. Also, if you are comfortable with flashable zip then you can download it and flash it in your recovery (press home + power button to go to recovery).
Here are some screenshots of Jbed app on my Samsung Galaxy Pop GT-S5570 running Cyanogen Mod 7 on it.
After I flashed Jbed.zip in CWM recovery you can see I got Java app on my App Drawer.

Some Java Midlets from My Brother's Nokia 5310 XpressMusic phone.

Thesaurus app running with the help of Jbed. Please note that due to lack of keypad this wasn't working fully on my touchscreen smartphone.

I swyped this text on my touchscreen based android smartphone in a VML Editor Java app (Midlet) that was also for Nokia phone.

So, now that you have got the app required to play java games/apps on your smartphone make sure you get yourself some jar files. You can download some from below sites or find yourself some other site that works well. Also, note that Jbed will show you fuzzy screen when you run java midlets in portriat mode. So, make sure you run all Java apps (or J2ME Midlets) in Landscape mode for clear display.
That's all about Jbed - An android application that let you run java apps or play java games on your android smartphone. I don't guarantee that Jbed works well for you or not. So, I am not to be blamed if it doesn't. If you have more queries please ask them in the comments below. Also, if  Jbed works for you very nice and well then please inform us through the comments.

  2. Stejin,
    Please, tell me where are you getting confused. You simply flash the zip file or install the apk and then run the Java app you see in the App Drawer. You will need some jar files on your sd-card. After you run java app press menu and then select sd-card, the Jbed app will list all your java apps (jar files) found on your sd-card. You then select the one you want to install and when it asks to run the midlets choose yes and run it.

    Read the second comment to know the details. Also, make sure you mount the system and data in recovery and use zip file (recommeneded). I will also update the post when I get time.

  10. RaeZen,
    Sorry, but I can't help you at the moment. I am having my exams and will be busy with my tasks a week or two. Maybe after that I might be able to help you. But, if you read above carefully I have provided clues already. Search for java games that would run on touchscreen phones having 240 * 320 (QVGA) screen (just like Samsung Champ for example). You will need to do some research and I hope you can at least do so from your part. Regards!

  12. shounik,
    Make sure your java installation is valid, try installing other games (you can download them from above and install them to /SDCard instead of / (you get to choose this while installing midlets). It might help. Try yourself a few times (take some time to test it) you will find a way out of it.
