It depends if your mobile device runs OpenMoko or if it runs Symbian or if it runs something else. If you don't know what your device OS is, then it is probably Symbian. If your script is a bash script, then you need to port bash to symbian first. That will be a lot of work but I suppose it can be done...

Is your script a shell script. To run it you need the shell or shell that supports that script. In short you will need a mobile phone that is linux based and has got shell. If not then you can not run the script.

Question But emulator like os

Thank you,
I heard emulator helps working as platform for scripts.
How could i know what my mobile supports ?
It's non branded "Chinese mobile".
I can easily connect it to Pc and retrieve all data from mobile and memory card inside it with windows explorer as normal storage device.
Is there any mechanism that helps to know which application works ?

What is the exact model and brand?
There are tens of thousands of different mobiles non branded "Chinese mobile". Actually, there are more mobile non branded "Chinese mobile" than those who are branded "Chinese mobile".
The first thing you can do is read what is written on the mobile to know which brand it is. Then you can look deeper and look at the model. After that, you can check the documentation or ask google what OS is running on it. Then Google will find you what you can install on it.


application, mobile
