    8320 - Inputting TRADITIONAL Chinese with pinyin?

    Advertisement



    Hi gang

    I've just picked up my unlocked T-Mo 8320 today, and I've gotten kind of frustrated downloading, installing, re-downloading, re-installing different OSes on it trying to find one with TRADITIONAL Chinese with pinyin input.

    Does anyone have any previous experiences they can share? Or am I basically stuck with simplified Chinese on the 8320?

    The link below, provided by jdellasala in a different thread comprises of a list of providers with Chinese OS, but so far the 4 I've tried all do NOT have traditional input with pinyin.
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...hlight=chinese

    Any input, suggestion, etc would be lovely, and much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Lux

    Of the 35 carriers (excluding t-Mobile) that carry the 8320, here are the 12 that carry the Chinese version of the 8320 OS and the version they have:
    Bharti Tele-Ventures Limited - v4.2.2.175
    China Mobile Peoples Telephone - v4.2.2.175
    Globe Telecom, Inc. - v4.2.2.175
    Hong Kong CSL Limited - v4.2.2.175
    Hutchison - v4.2.2.161
    M1 - v4.2.2.175
    PCCW Mobile - v4.2.2.161
    Singapore Telecom Mobile Pte Ltd - v4.2.2.184
    SmarTone-Vodafone - v4.2.2.184
    StarHub Ltd. - v4.2.2.184
    Telkomsel Indonesia - v4.2.2.184
    Vodafone Australia and Fiji - v4.2.2.184
    If you already have a version listed, download the matching version from above. You should then be presented with just the option to add the Chinese language portions of the OS.

    If you have a HIGHER version on your 8320 already, you may want to use JL_Cmder to wipe the OS from the device.

    Just remember to rename or delete the Vendor.xml file, and uninstall any other version of the 8320 OS you already have installed.

    p.s. I have NO experience with the language, and just assume these will work for you. They are listed as (Chinese) as opposed to others that are listed as (East Asian).

    they don't have input available yet,
    I am Korean

    and I am almost sure that
    they will add that function to the new OS 4.5 when they release it.
    because RIM will start selling BB to Korea

    and I also saw the option to install those functions in 4.5.0.10,
    but didn work,

    however, they deleted the option on 4.5.0.18, I dunno why.
    well I am hoping they are making the inputs for East Asian Languages
