This document describes how to freeze your Treo 650 in a few easy steps. First things first, you must be using Verizon as your wireless provider. If you aren’t using Verizon then this process might end with you having a stable operating sytem. This is not what you want. What you want is for your OS to freeze again and again.
- Sign up with Verizon
- If your Treo does not yet have Java installed then go ahead and grab IBM’s JVM
- Download Opera Mini for the Treo 650
- Load up Opera and go through the setup screens
- Use Opera for a minute or so and watch that Treo freeze!
Once you freeze your Treo with Opera enough, you’ll soon find that you’re having a lot more fun than you would trying to browse the web with the sluggish “Blazer”. Compared to watching “Blazer” labor to render, say, some black text on a white background, watching your Treo freeze is so much more fulfulling.
I suspect that freezing the OS works so great because of this reason listed on the Opera Mini site:
Note to North-American users
Opera Mini is available to all Sprint and Cingular customers. Availability for T-Mobile customers is dependent on the subscription plan. BREW-enabled phones, including Verizon, are currently not supported.
The Holy Trinity of “Blazer”, Opera, and Xiino makes you feel like you’re back in the good old days – running a buggy Windows 3.1 and surfing on a 1200 baud modem.
