    Could only find the English pack. How to add Chinese/Japanese language support?

    you have to wait for a carrier to release an EastAsia version of the OS, or for it to leak.

    Yeah. ATT normally always put the East Asia version of the pack out along with the English one. At least that's the case for my Bold.

    Don't know why this time they only have the English OS...hmmm.... don;t know how long it would take.

    I'm sure you two guys know this, but just for others viewing this thread here is a working link to download pages for all carriers:

    BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites

    The AT&T download pages offer US and EastAsia versions of older OS versions for some older model phones but not OS 6 as of this post. If you find one from another carrier and you want to install it on an AT&T phone, you'll probably still have to trick it by deleting a little file in the installation package that identifies the carrier. There are excellent and detailed installation instructions elsewhere on the Crackberry forums.

    I can't believe RIM expects people to put up with this though. Even for their latest phone and OS??? We're well into the 21st century at this point! Other smartphones are fully multilingual, support Unicode, include Asian fonts and locales, and include or offer easily OTA downloadable Asian input methods. RIM is falling farther and farther behind...

    If you just want to read East Asia Language, you can just install this attached COD file, which I extracted from 5.0.0.602. It worked for me. It will display Chinese, Thai, Japanese correctly. Let me know if it works for you?

    Hi Guys, you can download this file and add it to your 9800M loader files at

    for example:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9800M_v6.0.0.214_P6.4.0.99

    or

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9800M_v6.0.0.214_P6.4.0.99

    It should enable the East Language - Chinese, Japanese, Korean.

    Do note that the input functionality does not work on the .214 but works on the previous builds, apparently due to a change in the virtual keyboard settings which is probably why they have not released this.
