Default DroidSansFallback.ttf + Softbank Emoji font

i don't think this is useful for most of the people here, but I have inserted softbank emoji font data into the original DroidSansFallback.ttf so that desire users with softbank can view chinese/korean texts and emoji at the same time. Please find the attached.

i also created a user dictionary for simeji. copy the dic into /sdcard/Shimeji, load it as a user dic, and use "、", "。", "?", "!" (double-bite!!) to type emoji with simeji. simeji seems to have a limitation in the number of phrase entries, and i had to devide all emoji for those 4 double-bite letters as above, which seems more logical, in a sense, for daily use.

FYI, the emoji font data is originated from here, http://cova.sakura.ne.jp/sb/ i tried to contact the person who created the outline data, but he doesn't seem to check his blog for a long time and his email address is dead...

Will this make my desire recognize iPhone emoji?

i can see sms with emoji sent from my friend's iphone on my desire, of course in b/w, not in colors.

if your desire is rooted, just replace the original DroidSansFallback.ttf in /system/fonts by this one above. i did not change the original font other than adding the emoji data to it. it should not harm any other language capability. the emoji data is scalable and not in bmp, and looks really cool.

Also the emoji in them? Are they matched correctly, at least having a similar meaning?

As far as I know emoji isn't really asl standard, so I'm a bit concerned.

mcdonalds japan frequently sends me promotional mms with TONS of emoji, which i think is quite ridiculous, but i can read these mms with emoji matched correctly.

i am not sure about asl standard, but the emoji code part of the original DroidSansFallback.ttf is left blank from the beginning. as far as msgs are sent in unicode, which i believe is what iphone does, it should work without problems.

does this answer your question?

Most of them anyway... Thx, will try. But can't seem to be able to copy to system. Could be the Froyo ROM I'm using.

put your device in recovery mode, run shell, mount /system, exit shell, and push the font to /system/fonts from your pc via adb.

Thx for this, I've finally come around to install it. It works, but I don't really understand how to write them.

Default Have tried on Sprint HTC Hero...

... and it works just fine. Some glyphs are not very distinct; these seem to be ones that use a lot of dark colors -- when the glyphs were created, it seems that the dark colors just became black. So I get a number of glyphs that are basically silhouettes of the character they are intended to represent. Am working on creating black & white-optimized glyphs for these characters using the proposed Unicode characters, but this will take some time. Anyone know of other fonts with emoji glyphs in them?

(and lest I forget: THANKS TO THE OP FOR DOING THIS! I've been looking for a way to get emoji on my phone for a while now!)
