To Change Title Name of Opera Mini at StartPage

1. Press Ctrl + F and Search for Opera Mini.. and replace with desired name but within 10 characters.

I remember seeing a similar tutorial(either here on UCforum or on what was once s60world) that also showed how to edit text strings and add larger than 722b splash screens(calculator was needed).

There're many available on net but its a basic editing for many members who never try it. I'll try to post some other modification later.

It would have been better if you had given credits to the original author. I think it was trilobugz.
