    Default Japanese Keyboard?

    is it possible to type in japanese hiragana or katakana or even kanji at this point? cause i installed the English to Japanese and Japanese to English dictionaries for the iphone. the English to Japn works fine but Japn to English doesnt seem to work. I think i must have to be typing in hiragana or something. Because for example, i type in Taberu (in english characters) which means "eat" into wedict but no translation shows up. so just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this.

    here is a simple way to install Japanese on 1.1.3 (might work for 1.1.2 or 1.1.1, not sure)

    1. install mobilefinder
    2. install mobiletext edit
    3. in MobileFinder, navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences
    4. highlight GlobalPreferences.plist
    5. click on File->Modify->Open with->TextEdit.app
    6. this will open a new screen with the code for the global preferences. scroll down to find

    <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>
    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 7 again to convert to xml)

    8. open MobileFinder, navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences
    9. highlight GlobalPreferences.plist
    10. click on File->Modify->Open with->TextEdit.app
    11. 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
