Re: BlackBerry Bold 9700 Traditional and Simplified Chinese Language Support – Very Easy

I have got a Dutch bb 9700 and couldn't get Chinese input working it. Untill just now...  Downloaded a lot of different versions of eastasian OS, but couldn't get Chinese input working... Untill I downloaded Eastasian of vodafone UK version (9700jEastAsia_PBr5.0.0_rel541_PL5.1.0.96_A5.0.0.344_Vodafone_UK) and installing it following the instructions in this forum..

 

With this version I could add Chinese as a input language, but not Dutch.. First I thought that it wasn't a big problem, since I use English for the menu's anyway.... But after installing I found out that the autotext is very annoying, when typing dutch words while using English as input language...

 

So I  downloaded the multilanguage OS version (9700M_PBr5.0.0_rel541_PL5.1.0.96_A5.0.0.344_KPN) again. But if I install this version on my phone I would loose the chinese input again, so in the end I did the following:

 

I install both versions on my computer (make sure that the multilanguage and Eastasian has the version number, as you can see I used V5.0.0.554). Then go to Program Files>>Common Files>>Research in Motion>>Shared>>Loader Files, in this folder you see the folders of the loader files of both version..

I merged these two folders into one and then started loader.exe to install it on my phone...

This time I could choose both Chinese and Dutch (plus English and other european languages)..

Re: BlackBerry Bold 9700 Traditional and Simplified Chinese Language Support – Very Easy

Hi,

I think my BB already has the language pack, I used to be able to read and switch input language (to Chinese). But suddenly I just lost the switch input language section on the options. I still can read Chinese though. Went through the setting, tried the input language selection shortcut, just doesn't work. I am pretty sure I didn't change any setting.

Does anyone know what happened? And anyhow can fix it??

I followed the detailed instructions to install, but I'm unable to see the East Asian languages installed on my blackberry 9700 from T-Mobile. Only can see the English (United States) and English (United Kingdom). What should I do?

Re: BlackBerry Bold 9700 Traditional and Simplified Chinese Language Support – Very Easy

Hi,

I have followed MisurA steps and it definately works.

Originally I tried to use Device Software from Taiwan Mobile but was not successful but after downloading HK CSL and removing the Vendor.xml file and it works.

 

One note though, if I use the Blackberry Desktop Manager and click on Application loader then it still does not show. One has to use the Uploader application under C: drive -> program files -> common files -> Research In Motion -> AppLoader folder

 

Then the Eas Asia language will show.

 

Before installing the language pack my Application version was 5.0.0.586 and now it is 5.0.0.593.

 

Thanks for the valuable post here. I can read and input traditional Chinese on my blackberry.
