    Well done mavster, and welcome to CB!

    At a guess though I reckon that the contents of the screen you attached will mean nothing whatsoever to 99% of CB users.

    I am not saying that it is not of interest though... just undecipherable to most of us!

    hi,
    I'm interested in your Method.
    Did you flash the "net_rim_font_japanese.cod" in your Bold?

    Hello,

    I found that in an east asia firmware there were three file related to japanese but in the installation process nothing showd up apart from the korean anch chinese language. I than checked the cjk.alx file and found a line where the japanese menu was "Hidden japanese .....=true". I deleted the line and started the installation again and the japanese selectable entry was there.

    thanks mavster!
    It works! My browser can show Japanese now.
    But i have still little problem by showing the Japanese title in Media player. The title (maybe mp3's ID3) will not be displayed completely in Japanese. There are still some "?" here. Have you got the same problem?

    Hi, pls read this post #65 carefully in thread "Bold can't see Chinese characters? " by wugui

    The Japanese Support works basically the same.

    you need to do:
    after step 3, Go to PC folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9000-v4.6.0.126_P4.0.0.135
    find "CJK.alx " in this folder.
    open it and find the line " <hidden JPN_Input="True">true</hidden> "
    delete this line. save and close the file.

    continue with step 4, you can find the Japanese Support section now. choose it and finish the rest of process.

    after restart you can read Japanese on your BB.

    You can use a text editor to open it, like MS Word. but do not use windows notepad. It may damage the file.
    Make a backup of the original file, before you change anything.

    And best of all...My BOLD can display JAPANESE!!!

    Now my translator out here can just text me back anything I need at the stops or to say or where I am going for driver's etc!

    you guys notice the new rom always came out for western regions first before asian region. I have the same question on cjk.alx. I just recently upgraded to .167 and i m happy w/ the performance (loading pic, 3g etc), however, there is no asian lang support. I downloaded the .162, the latest rom from asian and trying to copy cjk.alx into c:\program files\common files\rim\shared\[rom version]\ and hoping i can either install the alx from there.... when i launched DM, i couldn't see any reference to clk.

    Anyone know how i can install alx on teh fly? Thanks ahead.

    Select "...9000 smartphone" from the pull-down list:

    1. Make sure you have Desktop Manager 4.6 installed. Older versions will load the OS but may not be fully compatible with all the memory of the Bold. You need DM 4.6:
    2. Download the OS file listed above to the PC then install it to the PC by running the file you downloaded.
    3. Locate the vendor.xml file and delete it. It's located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader
    4. Plug in BB and Open Desktop Manager. You should be prompted to upgrade.

    Does the above method also result in changing the OS to that of the Telstra version? For example, I'm on AT&T .167 -- will the above method cause .144 to be loaded?

    Anyone?

    I tried the Telstra file, but the DM App Loader has the OS Downgrade box checked. Is there any way to add Japanese input other than to up/downgrade from my current OS AT&T .167?

    The reason I ask is that my device is on BES and I'd like to not have to re-activate or mess with IT policies.

    Thanks!
