    Default Japanese input on 1.1.3 unlocked via anysim & ZiPhone (from 1.0.2 OTB iTunes upgrade)

    i'm trying to install Japanese input from a method by Mac Scott posted on
    http://web.mac.com/mac_scott/OS_X_an...p-by-step.html

    i don't have access to a mac osx and i'm not aware of a plist editor for win xp, so i am trying to make the changes to the plist using termvt100. however, i keep getting stuck on the password entry stage

    i got "login incorrect" when entering
    login: mobile
    password: alpine

    tried again using
    login: mobile
    password: dottie

    i'm using termvt100 on 1.1.3 unlocked via anysim 1.3 and ZiPhone --

    Any suggestions for how to either
    (1) bypass this password error;
    (2) use another terminal app on the iPhone 1.1.3; or
    (3) use some sort of plist editor on windows?

    grateful for any help or advice!




    here are the steps advised by mac scott for installing japanese input method editor

    [INSTRUCTIONS: TERMINAL APP VERSION][
    1. Jailbreak your iPhone, and install the following packages -

    • BSD Subsystem
    • Term-vt100
    • Erica’s Utilities (be sure to edit your path to include /var/root/bin)

    2. Fire up the terminal app on your phone and...

    cd ~/Library/Preferences

    plutil -c xml1 .GlobalPreferences.plist

    vi .GlobalPreferences.plist

    3. Find the following text:

    <array>


    <string>en US</string>


    </array>

    ...and edit it to add a line so it looks like this:

    <array>


    <string>en US</string>


    <string>ja</string>


    </array>


    4. Save and close the Terminal app.


    INSTRUCTIONS: PLIST EDITOR VERSION]
    1.Jailbreak your iPhone, and install the following packages -


    • Services
    • AFPd


    2.Download PlistEdit Pro on your computer, and launch it.


    3.Launch the Services application you just installed on your iPhone, and turn off EDGE.


    4.Join a local wifi network. ***You can leave EDGE on and still use WiFi for your networking, but AFPd will broadcast the availability of the filesystem of your iPhone to your telco’s network at large, and your root password is a known commodity, so.... don’t be stupid.***


    5.Launch AFPd on your iPhone, and pay attention to the IP address at the bottom of the application’s preferences.


    6.On your computer, in the Finder, select Go>Connect to Server... and type in the IP address from the previous step. Log in using ‘root’ as your username, and ‘alpine’ (without the quotes) as your password and connect to the ‘Root’s Home’ share on the phone. ***Note: If your iPhone screen goes black, you drop off of the wifi network. You must keep your screen active by periodically touching it during the rest of these steps. If you do drop off the network, reactivate your screen, and connect again to your ‘Root’s Home’ folder before continuing.


    7.Again, on your computer, open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.


    8.At the command prompt, type (or cut and paste) the following two commands, hitting ‘return’ between each:

    cd /Volumes/Root\'s\ Home/Library/Preferences

    ...and...

    open -a PlistEdit\ Pro .GlobalPreferences.plist


    9.When the document opens, select the line that reads:

    AppleKeyboards

    ...and click on the ‘New Child’ icon on the left of the icon tray at the top of the window. A new line will appear indented under AppleKeyboards, and will be highlighted. Double-click the empty space under the value column on that line, and enter ‘ja’ (without the quotes).


    10.Save and close. ***Special note here. I’ve noticed that when the .plist file remains in binary format, the globe mentioned below isn’t always visible, although it’s function is available on the right side of the ‘123’ key. If you notice this, and wish to convert the file format, follow these extra steps...


    a)Go back on your computer to the Terminal application that you launched in step 7.


    b)type (or cut and paste) the following two commands:


    cd /Volumes/Root\'s\ Home/Library/Preferences


    ...and...


    plutil -convert xml1 .GlobalPreferences.plist

    11.Turn off AFPd, and turn EDGE back on using Services.

    When you visit any application that uses a keyboard now, there will be a globe next to the ‘123’ characters key. Selecting this will alternate between your US and Japanese keyboards. The Japanese keyboard is pretty easy to distinguish, because it is compressed to make room for a kanji/kana suggestion field, and has a long hyphen to the right of the ‘L’ key.

    I installed Erica's utilities and BSD Subsystem, also installed SUID Lib Fix (under 'Tweaks (1.1.3)' ) in order to fix the login.

    now, i just enter "alpine" at the first password prompt on the initial termvt100 screen, no login
    then type
    bash
    to run the bash 3.2 program that fixes the backspace issue

    i believe, if I understand Mac's very helpful instructions, here are the next steps:

    cd /var/mobile/Library/Preferences
    [response: appears to have changed directory properly]
    plutil -c xml1 .GlobalPreferences.plist
    [response: "opening GlobalPreferences.plist for editing in XML"]
    vi .GlobalPreferences.plist
    [response: “Vim: Caught deadly signal BUS
    Vim: Finished.
    Bus error”


    if i can get that point correct, then i need to find the following text:

    <array>
    <string>en US</string>
    </array>

    ...and edit it to add a line so it looks like this:

    <array>
    <string>en US</string>
    <string>ja</string>
    </array>

    let me know if anyone has any suggestions on this

    Hahahahah! oh shiat! i fixed it just using Mobile Finder to find the correct GlobalPreferences.plist and then opened it right from the finder by selecting file->modify->open with->MobileTextEdit.app

    in text edit, i just scrolled down and added <string>ja</string> it was so f**king easy!!! now i can type anything in Japanese.

    does anyone know the 2-letter codes for other asian languages not included on the keyboards for the settings menu for 1.1.3, such as korean, mandarin, cantonese?

    i have installed Korean, Japanese, Italian, German and Spanish keyboards by the following method on my 1.0.2OTB which was upgraded to 1.1.3 via iTunes then jailbroken and unlocked with ZiPhone and anysim 1.3 (google maps works fine)

    1. install BSD Subsystem
    2. install Term-vt100
    3. install Erica's utilities
    4. install mobilefinder
    5. install mobiletext edit
    6. install 'SUID Lib Fix' (under Tweaks 1.1.3)
    7. open Term-vt100

    at the first login prompt type: alpine

    at the command prompt type: bash

    then type as follows:

    cd var/mobile/Library/Preferences

    plutil -c xml1 .GlobalPreferences.plist

    (what that command does is convert your GlobalPreferences file to xml, so that it can be read in MobileTextEdit and won't appear as gibberish. in the future, anytime you need to fix or add more languages, if it appears as garbled text in MobileTextEdit, you can go back and run step 6 again to convert to xml)

    7. open MobileFinder, navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences
    8. highlight GlobalPreferences.plist
    9. click on File->Modify->Open with->TextEdit.app
    10. this will open a new screen with the code for the global preferences. scroll down to find both places where you see the following

    <array>
    <string>en US</string>
    </array>

    ...and edit both places to add a line so it looks like this:

    <array>
    <string>en US</string>
    <string>ja</string>
    </array>

    if you want korean, italian, etc., you simply add
    <string>it</string>
    <string>ko</string>

    I have been using these keyboards for over one month now with no issues, and i can use them in all apps, including weDict and Google Maps with no problems whatsoever
