These forums are a user-to-user support channel, not a user-to-RIM conduit.

 


Good luck!

Re: japanese language pack on storm.

That is correct. These forums are not a formal support channel. They are merely a user-to-user method. Formal support is provided, as with all things in your BB, via your carrier and/or authorized reseller.

Re: Japanese language pack on storm.

You may have missed it in posting...scroll up to my post just above yours here...there's a link to the KB that discusses language pack installation.

 

Good luck!

Re: Japanese language pack on storm.

It's not the Desktop software update you need...it's the Device OS package. DL and install that (the one that matches your device OS) to your PC, then DTM will be able to install the language pack to your BB.

Re: Japanese language pack on storm.

[ Edited ]

Good morning.

 

May I ask if your Storm is 9530 or 9500?  (Or Storm 2, i.e. 9550 or 9520?)

 

For 9530 please locate 9530jAllLang_PBr4.7.0_rel230_PL4.0.0.205_A4.7.0.167_Redington__India__Limited.exe at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp.  (Japanese-enabled OS 5 package is NOT YET available . . . it may never become available.)

 

For 9500 please locate 9500_omadrmjAllLang_PBr5.0.0_rel801_PL4.2.0.214_A5.0.0.484_SmarTone_Vodafone.exe and the like.  (Japanese-enabled OS 5 package is available for many Asian carriers at http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/downloads/download_sites.jsp.)

 

Such OS files can be installed on your BlackBerry device with C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader>Loader.exe but please DO NOT try to install such OS files unless you are familiar with do-it-yourself BlackBerry OS upgrading.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

P.S.

 

NTT DoCoMo (the largest carrier in Japan) has so far introduced 8707h and 9000 (Bold) to Japan and neither Storm nor Storm 2 has been sold in Japan.
