Default Detailed instructions?

Could someone give a little more detailed instruction on changing keyboard? Have downloaded Total Commander, but canīt seem to find how to change the registry key. I know my language code, but canīt really understand where I can find and change "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\KEYBD\CurLa n g" on the X1.

Thx!

Hi!

Start Total Commander. In the top of the folder list you should see a folder named "\\Plugins". Open this folder and then go on and open "registry" => HKLM => HARDWARE => DEVICEMAP => KEYBD => CurLang. Now you should see the current value of "CurLan". Click the "Hex" Radio Button and then change the value so it correspond to your keyboard, in my case "41D". Finally press OK and then soft reset your phone.


Regards

Marcus

Korean keyboard support requires a little more work.

I've cabbed it up:

Download

Several things of note:
-You need to install DioPen first, it provides some files that you need for IME support (you don't actually NEED their software IME). They have a trial, you can install it then disable everything in SKTools. (http://www.diotek.co.kr)
-Normally the Korean code page (0412) mandates the reverse solidus ("\") is displayed as a won sign. I personally don't like this (ugly file paths) and it displays as a normal \ in this pack
-Remapped all latin characters in the Korean font back to a nicer looking latin font
-Also includes Chinese and Japanese characters
-Hangeul input only, WM cannot enter Hanja without a third party IME.
-The Hangeul/Latin toggle key is the au key
Change XPERIA keyboard to Korean - CJK font support only (all devices)

SPV-M100 (HTC Tanager) -> Motorola MPx220 -> O2 XdaII Mini (HTC Magician) -> HTC Touch -> Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 -> HTC HD2 (T9193)

You can if this is a feature of the IME.

I.e. most Asian languages which don't use latin characters have a toggle between English and that language (on WWE X1s it is the au button)

There's no way to toggle between two non-English languages, though.
