Lol, the Chinese input support is all there. I'm actually testing this OS on an unlocked AT&T Curve with a T-Mobile SIM to see if the new OS will take on the service books correctly, or if it's still a lost cause for TMo users.

I'll load this OS update onto my Curve later on and see if there are any improvements over the 4.2.2.222 OS.

Indeed. I also altered the .alx files to add the CDMA themes from the 8830 devices (Verizon, Bell Mobility, etc.), and I'll see how those go as well.

Nice find. Edited with instructions and stuck thread. Downloading now and will post .alx's in the Edited .alx sticky thread later tonight.

Any word on the Service Book issue? I posted the same note in the OP as in the last OS sticky thread. If the service books come through we can remove the note.

Testing with the TMo user ... doesn't seem to be getting that service book. Sorry, TMo customers, looks like you're stuck with the O2 OS for now. =\

Not sure if this is new (or even what it does)...

Options>Security>Software Tokens??

Other than that, I haven't noticed much of a difference.

Okay, here's what I've found on this, straight from the BTSC (click here for the article):

Quote:
Token-based credentials are network security credentials that use a token formed by combining a unique identifier, called a seed token, and another variable. Successful network authentication requires a valid token.

There are two different types of token-based credentials: hardware tokens and software tokens. Hardware tokens are tokens generated by a physical device separate from the network client device and software tokens are generated by software residing on the network client device.

The RSA SecurID® Library (a cryptographic library) on the BlackBerry smartphone periodically generates a software token for network authentication.
...take that explanation as you will. No clue here.
