Run Opera Mini on your Helio Ocean

The Helio Ocean is many things, but hackable? Never…at least not until now. An enterprising Ocean fanatic has managed to install the ubiquitous Opera Mini browser onto the device. Given the closed nature of the phone, this is quite a feat. There’s nothing terribly wrong with the built in Helio web client when it doesn’t force you into the mobile mode, but options are options, and we’re glad to have a new weapon in our arsenal. Be warned, however, that this is far from a clean process. Most importantly, however, the hack renders the QWERTY keyboard useless as long as Opera is open. Whack! Even so, we applaud the effort, and hope that this is but the tip of the Ocean-hacking iceberg.
