Adding Chinese/Japanese/Korean support to SGH-i600 WM6 STD.

At the meantime, there is still no official releases on the Samsung SGH-i600 device yet in Hong Kong (Which was known to be named i608), with the current Europe WM6 STD upgrade, we need some extra work to get Chinese/Japanese/Korean Language to display correctly on i600.

The following steps is just a lazy way of getting things work, but not the only or the best, cleanest way to do so, if you do have even MORE LAZY way, please do let me know.

What is included? what is not?
– Following steps are for viewing Chinese/Japanese/Korean Chars only, if you need Input method, you can either keep the CEStar input part, which is a shareware, or find some other IME.
– Full MSJH.ttf is 14MB, which included Chinese (Simp/Trad)/Japanese/Korean fonts, it does eats up lots of storage RAM, I have seen some hacked version which only include Chinese(Simp/Trad) flowing around the net, try google it.

Gentleman, start your engine!

1/: Download CEStar for WM5/WM6 STD from

2/: Install CEStar to your i600 WM6 STD by running setup.exe, it will reset your phone after the installation loading the new NLS. (Just in case you only want to read but not edit, you can remove WindowStartupDynaNls.lnk, which is the input program after the reboot, remember CEStar is a shareware, I do not use the IME, so I remove it, and it does expires if you do not register it anyway.)

3/: You should need to do Application unlock (SDA Unlock) before you can change Fonts Settings, you can find more of SDA Unlock by my older post on Application unlock the Samsung SGH-i600

4/: Download “Mobile Registry Editor”, a Registry Editor on your PC side (of coz, if you prefer to edit these long entries on your smartphone, you can do so by tools like “Resco Registry Editor”, but I think it is just too hard to do so).

5/: Make sure ActiveSync is connected, run “MobileRegistryEditor.exe”

6/: Multi-byte char handle in PIE (PocketIE) does not handle word-warp correctly, so text will not be warp correctly with the new fonts settings (And also other application which uses the PIE rendering engine), we need a bit hack here, edit HKLMNLSOLCID to 1028 (Decimal) and SystemLCID to 2052 (Decimal), now PIE should handle these multi-bytes word wrap correctly.

7/: Copy msjh.ttf (14MB) to your /windows/ on the smartphone.

8/: Edit HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftFontLinkSystemLink/, you should be able to see how Fonts are defined, change them to “Windowmsjh.ttf,Microsoft JhengHei” (You can also delete the other fonts CEStar installed to save some space under Window, as you do not need them anymore.)

9/: A little reboot shall then load the new MSJH (Microsoft JhengHei) fonts.

10/: You shold be able to view Chinese(Simp/Trad)/Japanese/Korean Chars correctly by now.

I may add photos and screenshots later on, too busy at work for capturing screen now.
