The demand to play CM9798 has rarely been higher and my Twitter mentions have been bursting with people wanting to play CM9798 on their Android device. I know what you’re thinking – you have an iPhone. An iPad. Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to do that yet but one day…
Anyway, you’re probably also thinking you’ve known how to do this for years. You’d be right, Adam did a lovely video and everything which you can see here. However, apparently this is an easier way. I don’t have an Android phone, so I can’t comment. But the people have been heard and so I’ll hand over to our 2018 CM Cup Champion Ash (@CM_Hints) to take you through it.
I’ve wanted to install CM97/98 on my Android phone for a long time but it was my aim to do so in a relatively simple manner. I’ve now finally discovered a way to achieve this in 5 steps! Full credit to @TahirTheRam86 for showing me the following method which worked for me, albeit with some caveats at the end. Please note – ‘Tahir’s Way’ is only suitable for Android phones.
Then go to advanced settings and change memory to 256MB.
Step 5 – Go back to main screen, click on the keyboard icon and enter:
*CAVEAT* The last step of using the keyboard didn’t work as expected on my Android phone and was slightly tricky. Whenever I typed in the CM2E8 the characters didn’t show up. I had to enter them separately C(Space bar)M (Space bar)2 (Space bar)E (Space bar)8. Selecting the predicted matching letter also helped. I then had to backspace delete until eventually it said CM2E8 and I then hit return.
Good luck and thanks again to Ash and Tahir for their hard work.
If any of you are borderline geniuses and want to have a go at getting this on Apple devices without jailbreaking then I’m all ears. Or eyes. Get in touch!
