Question Apple Silicon Compatibility

I am curious how well JDownloder works on Apple's ARM based Mac devices.

I have seen some reports about Java support, but they were contradicting each other and only based on theory, not testing.

So if you are an early bird and using those Macs, feedback would be very helpful.

Thank you.

JDownloader runs perfectly fine on BigSur with AppleSilicon, just tested yesterday
Extraction support will follow shortly with upcomming JDownloader updates.

At the moment only manual installation will work.
Installer will follow as soon as BigSur/AppleSilicon is supported by the software we use to create installer.

1.) Download supported Java. eg from Zulu
azul.com/downloads/zulu-community/?architecture=arm-64-bit&package=jdk

2.) Create folder for JDownloader, eg in your user home and download JDownloader.jar into it
https://jdownloader.org/jdownloader2 , see Other

3.) Start JDownloader.jar
At the moment the Java package from Zulu is zip only, means you have to manually start JDownloader.jar via /path/bin/java -jar JDownloader.jar. Once full installer dmg package is available, you should be able to normal double click JDownloader.jar

Update: Great work @Apple, even our normal X86 Installer/Bundle+Extraction works perfectly fine/smooth on AppleSilicon!

Hi,

Use jdk8, the zipped version and install manually via JDownloader.jar method.
The idea of a native installer hasn't been forgotten but there is no ETA available either.

@mccoy88f:
What tool did you use to create the launcher?

For me (MacMini M1) JDownloader works perfectly fine with rosetta and also native via Azul-JDK.
But most important, I cannot reproduce the reported issue with

Know Issue: · Adding premium account seems do not open ui for adding
Works fine here. Also shows up dock icon fine for me. Sounds like issues caused by the launcher.
I just launch JDownloader directly via JDownloader.jar and installed Azul-JDK or via terminal
java -jar JDownloader.jar

Using OpenJDK from Azul for Mac arm64 seems to be working fine. HOWEVER, do not install Java 16, but use 15 or even lower. with Java 16, the dock icon is not shown correctly, and submenus like the premium menu or "add links" are no longer opening.
you can find out about the main installed version with terminal using: "java --version".

You can uninstall java version by deleting branches in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines.

For a convenient launcher: you can also right-click Jdownloader.JAR in the finder and make an alias for it. this is a shortcut you can put anywhere.

this helps:
**External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

right click the Alias in the finder, then "Get Info" and just drop the icon of e.g. your launcher over the coffee cup icon in the information box on the upper left corner.

Thanks, tried it with Java Zulu 16.30+15 for ARM and it seems to work flawless now. Dock icon, submenu opening - everything works.
