Hello,

Sorry, Opera Mini is most likely not supported. It has significant technical shortcomings and it's unlikely to work. Only the latest version of Opera Desktop is definitely supported. There's also an outdated version of Adblock Plus that will work with Opera 12.1x, but it's not recommended to use either.

I've filed a bug report to ask for clarification on the system requirements page.

Also, even ABP for Android won't filter ads in Opera Mini, because the actual ad requests are made on Opera's transcoding servers, not your own device (this means that ads cannot be blocked in Opera Mini, not even via a HOSTS file or any other system-wide method).
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
