the new Opera Mini version 4.1 offers two new great functions, first the option to download files and the possibility to search in a webpage. OperaMiniLargeDevice 0.6 (from here) also supports these functions.
To download files to the harddisk I recommend to set the security domain in the WTK to the maximum in order to get rid of the annoying security prompts (Do you allow file access? ...). This can be done in the security options of the WTK Preferences. To download a file click a download link. Then a windows will appear that gives you the option to save the file. Choose the folder in which the file should be stored. I normally choose root1/ . On my machine (Win XP) it points to "C:\Documents and Settings\user\j2mewtk\2.5.2\appdb\OperaMiniLargeDevice1200x705\
filesystem\root1" when I use the 1200x705 version of the OperaMiniLargeDevice. I also found that sometimes the download does not start properly. This could still be a bug in Opera Mini 4.1. But in general in works this way. Also remenber not to close the download window until the download process has finished!
The other option to search in a webpage can be accessed when you press F4, then F3, enter the search string and navigate through the highlighted matches via F1. F2 stops this navigation.

another interesting solution to let Opera Mini run on the PC has been published here in Indonesian and here in English. This involves to use the MicroEmulator instead of the Sun Wireless Toolkit.
