Guest dearsina Posted January 19, 2005 Report Share Posted January 19, 2005 NOTE I wrote the following instructions after successfully installing a Norwegian T9 DLL on my Orange C500. Afterwards, I tried to install a few other languages from the DLL zip attached below, without success. I decided to share it with you anyway, in case someone out there could figure out why I'm suddenly getting negative results. Introduction You can add additional languages to your SPV C500 by placing T9 language DLLs in the Storage area of your phone and identifying their path in the registry. You'll need... You’ll need the t9 language DLLs you wish to import to your phone and a Registry Editor, like PHM RegEdit: http://www.phm.lu/products/Smartphone/RegEdit/ 'I told you so' We’re not doing particularly fancy stuff, but playing with the registry should always come with a little ‘I told you so’ in case your phone decides to die and you decide to track me down to shove your now useless phone up my nose—or other body cavities for that matter. So, playing with the registry can have fatal consequences for your phone and for anybody near it. Language DLLs So, the first thing you need is a t9 language DLLs. I’ve attached a few to this thread in a handy little ZIP file. It contains the following languages: Czech Finnish Hungarian Norwegian Portuguese Swedish Download it here: T9LanguageDLLs.zip You can try your luck on a search engine to find more, but they are a little bit difficult to track down. It would be very useful if you’re sitting on other languages to share them with the rest of us by for instance attaching them to this thread. Extracting DLLs from your phone If you have a t9 DLL on your phone, there is a way of extracting it. Copy the file from the \Windows folder where you’ll usually find the t9 files to \Storage Card. Turn off your phone, take out the storage card and put it in a SD card reader to save them on your computer. I have also read that you can IR or BT them using SmartExplorer, but the inbuilt Explorer is sufficient enough. You might run into trouble if you simply plug your phone into ActiveSync and try to copy the files into your computer because they are somehow marked as system files and thus notoriously difficult to do anything with. Microsoft Langauge ID Also, note down the language ID of your language. This is useful when playing with the registry. You can find a handy list here (Look at the LCID Hex column): http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/referen...setup/lcid.mspx 1. Store your DLL Place your language DLL in a folder under \Storage\Application Data\ I’ve called mine t9 so the complete path becomes: \Storage\Application Data\t9\ 2. Edit the registry Now, over to the registry goodness. There are two places you need to play with. The first one is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\T9 Input Method\MUI\Languages Click on the Available value and edit it. Add your language ID to the list and save. If you want to be extra fancy, place them in alphabetical order, as the list wont get sorted, it will just be read from beginning to end and your languages will be placed in that order. Now, click back a couple of times and select the LDBs folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\T9 Input Method\LDBs Here, add a New Value (String value) for each new language you are installing, the name of the Value is the Language ID and the Value Data is the path to the language file, for instance: Value: 0414 Value Data: \Storage\Application Data\t9\T9NorwegianLdb.dll Reset and go Reset your phone for the above to take effect. You can now select your new language from the dropdown text type menu, for instance when writing a text message. sina london Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
