Hello people. Many of us wish we could play N-Gage 2.0 on our touchscreen phones(other than N97 & N97 Mini). There is no official support so far for Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia 5233, Nokia 5235, Nokia 5230 and the rest. Nokia are in talks for making a N-Gage client for the Tube(Check out this link http://arena.n-gage.com/t5/Off-Topic-Forum/New-n-gage-enabled-phone-the-5800-Xpressmusic/m-p/425294) and their first game is going to be Guitar Hero which would make use of the plectrum that we received with our devices as a Guitar pick. I’m not sure this will even work, but there’s more to see.
To be able to play N-Gage 2.0 games on our Tubes and other V5 devices, we have to hack our phones.
The requirement of a physical keyboard for playing N-Gage 2.0 games can be met by installing Virtual Keyboard. It emulates the button inputs as if it were a real keyboard and we could play the games. (Download links can be found at the bottom.)
A few people have compiled(I’m not taking any credit for it) an N-Gage installer for the Tube and the other V5 devices. Please note that 5800 has a different installer and so does the 5230, 5233, 5235. So please choose the correct installer for your phone.
The cracks downloaded from websites don’t work on the N-Gage, but the trial downloaded from the official site works smoothly. Remember that wile playing the games you need to disable all the patches in the ROM Patcher. Otherwise the app may show “KER EXEC 30” error.
There are many problems while playing the games. Most usually, even though the games work smoothly, the unavailability of a physical keyboard strikes hard. While downloading games please download only games that are compatible with the N97. There is a chance that the others might not work.
Some of the games that I have tested so far work and I will be posting their names in another post.
Install N-gage installer(NGage 2.0 Installer 5800.sis)
Nokia 5233, 5230, 5235:
Install Ngage installer(N-Gage-5230-repack.sis)
After That, both users should install:
Now install virtual keyboard(Virtual Key Board.sis)
Install ngage controller mod(ngage controller mod.sis)
Remember, you have to enable all the patches before installing them. Your phone must be hacked to play N-Gage 2.0
While playing the game disable all the patches.
