HOW TO: Install East Asian Language Pack on Blackberry 9780

Hello!

I bought a new Blackberry and want to install Korean, Chinese and Japanese on it A.K.A the East Asian Language Pack. I previously had a Blackberry 8520 and installed the language pack successfully by following this tutorial. I thought that it would work if I tried it with my new phone but it doesn't.

 

I tried using .JAR files by transferring directly on my phone and installing it from there, but no results. I also tried using .COD and .ALX files but there were no results! I'm confused because the other languages such as English and French appear if I use Desktop Manager or Desktop Software but it doesn't show ANY East Asian languages at all.

 

Can anyone please help me resolve this problem?

My phone details are as follow:

 

Blackberry 9780

6.0 Bundle 2647 (v6.0.0.600, Platform 6.6.0.223)

Network: T-Mobile

Bought from: Carphone Warehouse

 

Thank you!

Hey Ld0ttx,

Sorry for the delay in replying.

 

T-Mobile UK does not have east asian language pack for the BlackBerry Bold 9780.  This is carrier specific though, some other network service providers may have the language pack but the BlackBerry will have to branded for the other provider.

Re: HOW TO: Install East Asian Language Pack on Blackberry 9780

Hi,

 

If I was the one having this problem I would follow these steps:

Seek a newer OS version for you BB not related on your carrier/country. This should be a Windows PC executable/installable program.

Install it in your PC (Mac should be the same I presume but I don't know)

Delete de vendor.xml file from shared files folder in program files folder.

Execute de Loader.exe program (same folder as vendor.xml)

Follow OS update instrucctions to renew your BB's OS.

Check all asian languages you need.

Finish OS installation.

 

That's "all"

 

BTW: Seek the newest BB os version in some BB foruma like blackberryforums, crackberry or blackberryOS

 

Let us know if it worked

So what you're saying is T-Mobile doesn't have that language pack for that particular device?

Be aware, the 9780 is os 6.x only.

 

Use any new os6.0 loader for all languages. the forums names I provided should work

Re: HOW TO: Install East Asian Language Pack on Blackberry 9780

But I have OS 6 on this phone already. Do you mean the latest OS 6 update that supports all laguages? I'm unsure what you meant and just clearing things up.

Re: HOW TO: Install East Asian Language Pack on Blackberry 9780

there are many os6.0 releases. Perhaps (most likely, I think) you don't have the last last last one.

So you could try to seek the last one and replace the one you have. Just to try to solve your problem.

I tried that, it didn't work. But that is for 9700 and I have 9780, does it matter?
