Default How can I install Korean on my 8900?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how exact way to install Korean on 8900?
I get several emails in korean so it will be awesome to be able to read korean on my handheld.
It will be even better if you know how to input korean on 8900.

Thank you so much!

I want to install chinese, but I'm already using the .168 firmware. Is there a way to still add on?

just pull chinese language pack from .144 and paste on .168 and install....
bug with .168 that i found so far regards to korean language is that it doesn't decode artist and title on mp3 files on media player.

What? That's mainly what I want my Chinese for is the song titles instead of squares. I hope it works.

A quick question: with the language pack, can you input Korean or just read Korean? Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply. Would you mind post a guide on how you did it? I only got the display part working, not the input. Thanks!

I just pulled out CJK from EastAsia 8900OS .133.

If you need this file, pm me with your e-mail address so that I can send it to you (it's about 12MB - Chinese, Japanese, and Korean).
