Arabic input for Bold 9700 Onyx
found it at http://forums.crackberry.com/f132/ar...5-0-os-321358/ thanks to romman
just wanted to make sure all BOLD 9700 onyx owners can find it by posting it here
1- open BlackBerry Desktop Manager
2- click Application Loader
3- click Start under Add / Remove Applications
5- Select Arabic.alx
6- then continue for installation without selecting anything
7- wait for your device to restart
7- press ALT + Enter or goto language selector under: Settings -> Options -> Language and Text input , under Inout Language you will see العربية select it and VOILA !
thanks to brother romman

thanks I have seen more then one person posting about thisGuys/Gals when I post things I am posting to the best of my knowledge if I am for certain incorrect please correct me more knowledge to me helps. Thanks!
hmm, it seems you have to install multilingual ROM that can have Arabic
what OS version do you have ? and pressing ALT + Enter what does it show on your device ?
mine is t-mobile bought off ebay and worked, but i did lots of tries in the middle till i reached this solution maybe installing other ROMs fixed it for me?
let me know
the arabic.alx attached in the zip file attached to this thread
i can read/write arabic natively on system wide
maybe because i have installed multiple language ROM from Rogers it worked with me ? not sure! but its working just fine now!
goto your menu -> settings ->options -> about
what does the third line, 5th and 6th line shows ?

Hey Bashar, thanks a lot!! It worked on my 9700!!
I wonder will it work on the Tour 9630 (os 4.7)?
UPDATE: arabic lang input didnt work on the Tour, but i can change the language for the menus in arabic. Any ideas

well not sure, you could ask in the Tour section
is your ROM multilingual on the Tour ? see if you can download one from BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites and get it working
you can try other carriers mo ella Zain Kuwait btw

also, I have downloaded and installed os 5.0 for the tour, but DM doesn't seem to detect it, it just lists the 4.7 version. Ideas?
UPDATE: i see the 5.0 version in DM but it can't install cuz it says "Only active Blackberry subscribers can install this update", what gives? the 5.0 is already installed locally on my pc.

^^ delete the vendo.xml file thats in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader.. then use the apploader to update your phone in that same folder.
this is the official arabic keyboard as released by etisalat on their bold 9700
