    Yep I get just a white screen with an exit button in the bottom left. Same thing happened when I tried to install it through the J9 tool.

    I'm on a Sprint Palm Centro.

    I tried it on my treo 755p and it does not work. I have been using Gmail.prc that I found in this page:
    discussion.treocentral.com/showthread.php?t=127921&page=6

    and it works well so far. The Gmail mobile 2.0 has some new exciting features, and if someone can make it work on treo/centro/palm, that would be awesome.

    After several tries, I was able to download and install the .jar file using the IBM tool on my Centro from this url http://m.google.com/app/v2.0.6/L1/gmail-g.jar . Gmail - 2.0.6 now shows in the Midlet List and when I tapped the Launch button , I got the Gmail sign in/password screen but could only add my email address then the screen went to white and froze up. At least we are starting to get closer.

    I haven't gotten past a loading screen where it says "Please be patient while Gmail loads for the first time..." and an "Exit" button on the bottom left corner of my AT&T Centro.

    I tried converting both the .jad and .jar versions to PRC using jartoprc_w.exe tool from the JVM 5.7.2 zip package.

    The jad version gets me to the loading screen mentioned above while the jar version gives me a blank screen with the "Exit" button.

    I haven't tried either version on my TX just yet.

    Gmail_2.0.prc was converted from the .jad version.
    Gmail-g_2.0 was converted from the .jar version from the link provided by antmelnat

    I created my own PRC from the GMail 2.0 JAR, and like many others, it mostly hangs with a white screen and a small "Exit" button in the lower left corner. However, I have gotten it to the GMail login screen twice after deleting/reinstalling, and it seems to hang there. I've tried sending stdout to VFS (Palm\Programs\stdout.txt), but there isn't anything there. I think Google has some compatibility problems with GMail2, hence no support for us or the WinMob folks.
