    as an update, I am working on integrating the HKCSL chinese language CODs into the Nov rel. 8830 software installation pkg. I don't know if this will work or if I will have to install the files separately. Will advise of progress.

    found this software on a chinese site

    bbauto.siteem.com/common-07/index.htm

    email and internet chinese works well. SMS text does not. Overall a simple fix.

    I would not recommend updating a 8800 with the 8830 software. The 8800 is a GSM phone while the 8830 is a CDMA. There may be a way to pull the .cod/.alx file from the release and use JL_CMDER to load it on to your phone.

    yeah, I tried to install the "hybrid" package of CSL and VZW OS and my phone was freezing up. Reinstalled latest VZW software, installed traditional and simplified font package, and the Hyper Tap software I referenced in the last post.

    I had to get a friend of mine in China to pay the $2 fee so I could get a serial number for the Hyper Tap software. Otherwise the trial version expires in 60 days. The Chinese guy is working on getting paypal set up.

    With the exception of SMS, this works extremely well. Now I need to find Korean and Japanese inputs.

    Yeah, you have to keep OS packages consistent with the phone model, otherwise you'll run into the issues you were having. (Just ask the Pearl users who keep trying to load the 4.3 8130 OS's on their 8100s even though we've had locked thread after locked thread saying it won't work)

    Its a shame though, that you can't just download the languages from a site and add them on.
