Magento Mobile HTML5 Theme
No Extension for Community Man
This is a magento enterprise edition extension. You might get few reviews related to moving mobile folder from enterprise to default and think it would work. Well, it would work somewhat, not completely.
Open layouts customer.xml, search.xml, giftregistery.xml and the most important checkout.xml, they all have blocks referenced to enterprise edition, not community edition.
So, you will get big fat exceptions when you open any pages which reference these layout blocks, e.g. if you open customer registration page, you get exceptions like below
exception 'Mage_Core_Exception' with message 'Invalid block type: Mage_Enterprise_Customer_Block_Form_Template' in ....
Its really hard to figure out each and every such instance of enterprise block reference and replace that with community one.
The solution is simple. Just use magento's default iphone theme, which comes with community edition installation. It does quite good for a beginner website.
You can always add your fancy stuff there and make it look great.
And always remember, any good magento store will have lot of customization already done for desktop website, so you will always end up dong some amount of work to make your mobile site working in a nice way. So, please think, before you buy any paid mobile theme, and eventually have to so same amount of work as you would do with magento's default iphone theme. (They are all build on top of this, and you could do the same).
So, beware, this extension no good for community edition.

Same as magento iphone theme
This theme is already there in default magento. Its called iphone theme. I have not taken pain to figure out the differences between this and default magento's iphone theme. But they look pretty much the same.
I would prefer to use the default magento's iphone theme, which is always more reliable.

Using Magento 1.9. It almost worked, but..
It's a great theme and it almost worked, but I can't check out. Maybe there are conflicts with my current theme + extensions that I have yet to figure out. But if you're using this extension in a fresh magento install with no customizations yet, it will works right out of the box. :)

Hello Friends this theme work perfect..
Install this theme with magento connect
1st go to ftp app move mobile folder into Default folder
2nd go to Skin move mobile folder into Default folder
No need enterprise folder removed or delete it
Log in to your Magento Administration and go to "System" -> "Configuration". Select your store. Inside the Configuration section go to "Design" and change data in all relevant fields to your new theme name in "Themes" tab. Then click "Save".
At every tab you should click “Add exceptions”. There you should enter mobile devices and Theme for them.
Here is the field content of the “Matched Expression” - set "iPhone|iPod|BlackBerry|Palm|Googlebot-Mobile|Mobile|mobile|mobi|Windows Mobile|Safari Mobile|Android|Opera Mini" value for "Marched Expression" field
- set "mobile" for "Value" field
Click "Save Configuration" button.
Flush Magento cache via Cache Storage Management.

Great for quick mobile deployments!
This was the solution I was looking for, I'm on 18.104.22.168 - just had to move files from enterprise to default and the theme works great. Easy to colorize to my customers needs. Deployed 8 installations with 8 different color schemes in under an hour thanks to this.

Enabled but layout is totally weird
I installed the theme successfuly and enabled it. It is loaded successfuly the only problem is all my cms pages were there, Menu did not work.
Left side navigation and everything that I have in my normal theme was also inside this one and eventually it was pretty messed up.
I would like to have an option like dont show any CMS Blocks inside the pages.
At the end I couldnt make it work properly for my site. And I am going to remove it.

Make this change after install for Community version stores
Good base theme for mobile phones. As others have stated, this install creates an "Enterprise" folder in your community version store in the app and skin folders. Keeping it as installed did not work for me. although I tried as commented in others reviews to add the "Package" exception (enterprise), but the homepage of my website and product pages stayed as my current theme while the category and checkout pages where the new mobile theme.
Instead you should move the mobile folder out of the enterprise folder and into your default folder in both the app and the skin directories. Installed as "enterprise/mobile" changed to be "default/mobile". Then make the following changes to the Configuration in the Magento backend:
Add exception for Templates and type in:
"iPhone|Android" for Matched Expression (without quotes)
"mobile" for Value (without quotes)
Repeat for Skin, Layout, and Default using the same values in Matched Expression and Value.
Voila, everything works now as it should.
FYI, I am using Magento Community version 22.214.171.124

Worked for Magento 126.96.36.199
Worked for Magento 188.8.131.52 but you have to do some correction for yourself. The installation program had put the theme not under "default" package but "enterprise", that's why it didn't work. You have to add a new exception to the design -> package with Matched Expression "iPhone|Android" and value "enterprise".
